How Tall Should Your Bed Be?

How Tall Should Your Bed Be?

Most people never give a second thought about the height of their bed unless they struggle to get in and out of it. And, even if you don’t realize it, you likely already have a preference when determining how tall you want your bed to be. In this article, we will explain the average height for how tall your bed should be so you can see how your current setup stacks up. However, just remember that what is most comfortable for you will always be the ideal height!

In most cases, your bed should be proportionate to how tall you are as an individual. This is an important part of the equation because the right mattress height will eliminate strain that can occur both getting into and getting out of bed. If your current bed setup is too high or too short, it could ultimately be impacting you physically by putting unnecessary strain on your body, joints or muscles. Unfortunately, this problem can become even more pronounced in old age.

For the average person, a standard bed frame will sit at just around knee level, or between 1 ½’ to 2′. With a bed this tall, most people can easily get into the bed without much effort. If the needs of an individual change and it becomes harder to get into bed because of the current height of the mattress, it may be beneficial to adjust it over time. While this may seem like extra work, the impact it can make on your daily physical health makes it worth the time.

The mattress you are currently sleeping on may also change how tall your bed might bed. For this reason, any time you get a new mattress or bed frame, you may need to adjust them to get the right fit for total comfort.
