If you just can't find the perfect bed for you, you might want to consider shopping for a custom-made one! That round, rotating bed in Austin Powers sure was cool. Wouldn't it be great if you could have something just like that in your very own bedroom? That thing must be a babe magnet. You can't seem to find what you're searching for at the Ikea though. In fact, you've been all over town and yet to find the groovy, spinning mattress of your dreams. It looks like you're just going to have to get one custom made. If you're in the market for a custom bed, you probably already have a very clear idea of what you're looking for. Before you start your shopping, though, there are a few details you ought to consider.
Stick with a standard size. While it may seem like a great idea to you to customize every single detail of your new bed, this temptation is shortsighted and may result in years of stress. Standard beds already come in several sizes. You can choose between twin, double or full, queen, Eastern king and Western king. Surely one of these sizes suits your needs. If you decide to go against the grain, not only will you need to have the frame custom made. You will also need to have the mattress and box spring custom made. Getting a custom made mattress and box spring is going to be way more difficult than getting a custom frame. Not too many people specialize in building one of a kind mattresses. If you get a weird size frame, you may need to replace the mattress several times over your lifetime. This is not even to mention your linens. Are you also going to order all of your linens to be custom made for the rest of your bed's life? Or are you going to sew or tailor them yourself? The only instance in which it makes sense to order a custom size bed is when you are fitting the custom bed into some architectural element or detail of your custom made house.
Consult with a doctor if you are buying a custom bed for medical reasons. If you think you need a custom bed because of a back injury, you had better consult with your doctor, chiropractor or physical therapist before you go placing any orders. Lots of bed companies manufacture custom made beds that are supposed to give you exactly the support you need to help you with your bad back. You need to find out what kind of support you need from your doctor before you order one of these. The person that sells your custom bed is not going to give you a medical exam. He has no idea what sort of injury you have, or where the injury is, and he can't tell you which bed to order.
Think about ordering an entire set of custom bedroom furniture. If you are ordering some sleek, Scandinavian bed frame with storage options that you designed yourself and a hand carved headboard, think about ordering an entire bedroom set. The manufacturer may be willing to cut you a deal on a wardrobe, vanity and dresser. Then you can have an entire room full of custom made furniture.
