Signs of quality in a wood bed frame

I need a new bed frame, and I found one that's hitting a lot of my buzzwords: it's hand-made from locally-sourced hardwood by a small business. And at $280 (Canadian) for a queen, it's less expensive than comparable beds from IKEA. So I'm assuming it's made by someone in their garage. How can I tell if it's well made? [more inside]

Family Bicycling Near London

We're staying in London late August/early September. We want to see the Cotswolds and West Sussex. We're thinking overnight trips where we take a train out of London and then get around by bike might be more fun than renting a car and driving around. Is this plausible? [more inside]

Can this (new! expensive!) marital bed be saved?

I am the sleeping equivalent of the princess and the pea. My partner is a restless sleeper. For years, we've solved this problem by pushing two ikea twin beds together. As a gift to ourselves, we just bought a beautiful bed. Popped our two mattresses in....and discovered that the motion transfer problems have returned. Much sadness and gnashing of teeth has ensued. Please help! Details inside. [more inside]

Want: Slightly Higher Platform Bed with Upholstered Headboard

I'd like the following: Platform (i.e doesn't require boxspring) bed that has a (grey, neutral colored) cloth upholstered headboard, and has at least 10 inches of clearance to put some low profile storage bins and maybe a tiny dog who wants to sleep under it. Ideally under $1,200, design should be the mid-century/contemporary look that's popular at West Elm now. Thoughts?

Sorry, IKEA, it's not you, it's me.. at least where bedding is concerned

Crazy, creative ideas for bedrest AKA solitary confinement

Week two of horrendous bronchitis during which I decided to go NC (until yesterday) with long-time (ex?)boyfriend/co-dependent partner in dysfunction. Broke NC yesterday after five days straight of MD-ordered bedrest - and after texting and calling everyone I knew, including my grandma - twice. Any practical tangible ideas for how to maintain NC and my sanity, oh and I don't know, my health? Any and all welcome. Thanks. [more inside]

Not my bed filter: memory foam/smaller mattress survival tips?

For the next week, my partner and I will have to sleep on queen/full sized memory foam mattresses. Both are (as far as I can tell) reasonably high quality products, but A) I'm a stomach sleeper who hates memory foam, and B) partner is a flailer who moves around a lot. We normally sleep on a latex foam king. I'd like to be decently rested so I'm not a grumpy holiday houseguest. Hope me? [more inside]

Left matress on its side for a few days, now has lump that won't go away

Someone was moving out of my building shortly after I moved to my current apartment, resulting in my girlfreind and I getting a free queen sized mattress.

What is the best sofa bed out there?

We're looking at buying a sofa bed for a finished basement part of our home. We'd like something that is functional as a sofa, but it's much more important that it be a relatively good and comfortable bed. This will be for occasional visiting guests, so it's not critical that it's super-durable, but the more durable the better. We're willing to spend some money on this but, of course, cheaper is better. What kind of beds should we be looking at? Any specific recommendations? Wildcard recommendations (Murphy bed?!) also welcome. [more inside]

Get a mattress topper or buy a new bed?

Tuning and calibrating your squeaky bed

My bed frame is really squeaky - it chirps with my slightest move. And now it has a new thing - every once in a while, when I lie perfectly still, it squeaks in time with my heartbeat. I'm not kidding - I checked my own pulse to make sure it wasn't something else. This is amazing. How might I tune my bed - or make a whole new piece of furniture - that would do this deliberately and reliably? [more inside]

I'm not a morning person at all, I never have been, and I doubt I ever will be. Unfortunately, society refuses to acknowledge this, and even forces me to do things before midday. Because of this, I'd love to hear what you do that makes getting up into a somewhat pleasurable experience, rather than keep experiencing the Promethean torture I go through every morning.

Best starter mattress?

Outfitting my new apartment and I'm in need of a queen-size mattress... price range $200-$600. I like soft beds but don't have a great back either, and generally I sleep well in hotel beds.

Otherwise, what mattress should I acquire and where, which will arrive in under a week? Thanks in advance!

Mid-Height Loft Bed

I am looking for a loft bed for my daughter. Most on the market seem to be quite high off the ground; I am looking for one with about 42 inches of clearance below. Something like this: http://www.sleeplandbeds.co.uk/hyder-midloft-mid-sleeper-bunk But sold in the USA. Room and Board has their 'Bower Bed,' which is almost right but not quite high enough (and is one piece of solid steel so getting it in the apartment is a problem). Curious if anyone knows of any products or hacks to existing products?
