Comfort. Possibly the most important justification behind the significance of bed height, is that it affects your comfort and well-being on a daily basis. How easy it is to get in and out of the bed is obviously dependent on said bed’s height. You don’t want to strain your legs having to scramble out of a really low bed. At the same time, you don’t want to have to hurdle your way into bed every night.
High beds are much riskier. If I`m going to fall out of bed (which, fingers crossed, never happens) I`d much rather do so from a low height. I already have a habit of injuring myself doing everyday things (like sleeping), so anything I can do to minimize that risk is a plus in my book.
However! If you live with a partner who is gifted with a height that unfortunately is far taller than yours, or that falls a tad short, then you have a couple options. A tall bed (with a handy step that blends nicely in the bedroom décor) can give you a sense of opulence and regality whereas a short bed can make you feel grounded. The Japanese have been fans of low beds for centuries, in fact they’ve gone as far as creating the ‘Shikibuton’, a traditional bed that almost becomes the floor, it’s meant to connect the spirit to nature, but be careful if you have a bad back!
Durability. Metal bed frames are made to last for a long period of time and survive wear and tear. Sadly, most metal bed frames these days have iron content that can corrode easily. Nevertheless, these do have anti-corrosive coating to delay rust from appearing and if you do treat the metal bed frame with a new coating, it will still look brand new.
