Flying is maybe everyone’s simple choice if they asked what super-ability they want to have. While dreaming is the only option they have if they want to get that super-ability. Really? There is an answer to both of them. Introducing to you, a hanging bed.
Forget all of the conventional bed that lay on the ground, now you can choose to fly while you sleep. It is an interesting furniture that visually amazing for your bedroom. It gives fun and inviting sense as hammock, but with even more comfort. Not only beautiful in vision and comfy, this floating bed sometimes offer a solution for space saving as you can hang it high enough so you can put seating under the bed. You can also use the blank space under the bed as a simple storage. But, before you do so, please consider some matters as below.
Choose the material wisely. A various material can support your mattress, but you have to estimate which one is the strongest. Your choice can be whether it is pallets, plywood, or secured salvaged beams. Pallets is the common one to make a mattress support. While thick plywood is the most reliable to make a strong platform. Salvaged beams usually used as bed frame, so it is also can be the useful material.
Keep in your mind to use strong chain or cable or maybe rope to hang your bed. You will need something that way more sturdy chain than the one that used for hang a lamp. The chain must be strong enough to support the weight of the mattress and its support plus the weight of you. So, a chain with welded links should be an answer. Most of the chains designed for lifting usually have a safety margin in the proportion of 5:1, meaning you need 500 pounds’ chain to lift 100 pounds’ weight.
The most important thing is to make sure your bedroom ceiling can support it. Adequate support in the ceiling is require as the bed itself weigh hundreds of pounds. The ceiling also needs to provide the support system to lift the extra weight of the people who lying on the bed, likewise the torque as a result from their movement. Thus, it is recommended for you to consult with an architect or a contractor to check your bedroom conditions before making it true. Flying has never been this easy as you have a floating bed in your bedroom!
