Standard bed height may not be the first thing you think about when shopping for new bedroom furniture. But it’s an important factor to consider, as the choice you make will end up affecting you every single night. When deciding between a high vs. low bed, there are two common types to consider — standard and platform. Read this overview of the pros and cons of platform beds and standard beds to help you make an informed decision.
Platform bed frames are lower than standard bed height. This low-to-the-ground position gives them a cool, sleek look that complements most modern bedroom designs. They’re also a good choice if you’re watching your budget because you don’t have to purchase a box spring. If you have young children or small pets sleeping with you, a platform bed can be safer for them to get in and out of because of its low height.
Because standard bed frame height has a much higher elevation from the ground than platform bed height, standard beds can be easier for elderly people and people with mobility issues to get in and out of. If you’re shopping for a frame you hope to keep for years and continue to use as you age, a standard frame might be the smartest choice.
Standard beds are also good for small bedrooms as they offer more storage. They typically allow for at least 25 inches of space between the floor and the top of the mattress, giving you more room to store items you may not have room for in your closets or dresser drawers.
While the main factor affecting bed height is the frame itself, mattress height can also play a role. Factors like support levels, quality and comfort can affect the height of the mattress itself and impact the overall elevation of your bed. These factors vary by brand and can make a difference in the height of your standard or platform bed, so it’s important to remember to consider them when you’re shopping.
our obsession with Hollywood: The glam style trend continues to be white hot. With luxurious fabrics and metallic accents, the glam style is showing up everywhere, especially in bedrooms. After all, who doesn’t want to wake up feeling glamorous?
What is Modern Glam Style?
Modern glam is becoming increasing popular, but what exactly constitutes as glam style? While you might be picturing flashy and glittery rooms, glam is on the subtle and sophisticated side. Don’t worry, there is plenty of sparkle involved, but it’s incorporated in a more refined way. Modern glam is often identified by neutrals, jewel colors, pastels, lots of texture and reflective surfaces like mirrors, metallics and crystals. Some common features seen in modern glam spaces are tufted furniture, faux fur ottomans, metal accent pieces and dramatic lighting fixtures such as crystal chandeliers.
How Do I Make My Bedroom Glamorous?
You don’t always need to buy all new furniture to put together a modern glam room. You can easily cover the basics with some décor and accessories. To get the glam look in your bedroom, bring in plenty of texture, like chenille and feathers, with throw pillows and blankets. Use metallic hardware, lamps, and candle holders for sparkle and sophistication. Put a soft area rug under foot, and hang a chandelier, and your glam bedroom makeover is complete.
Here are some more glam bedroom ideas:
Use dark, textured wallpaper as an accent wall behind your headboard
Get a silky gold throw blanket or a faux fur blanket for the end of the bed.
Add throw pillows with feathers, jewels, and ruffles.
Hang a trio of decorative mirrors above the bed.
Use mini chandeliers for bedside lighting.
Gray is a good pallet for a glam bedroom.
Add pops of color with a magenta velvet ottoman or a turquoise throw pillow.
Glam decor is big on floral, so fill crystal vases with all white flowers for your nightstands.
How Can I Make My Bedroom Look Upscale on a Budget?
Just because the glam style trend looks expensive, it doesn’t have to break the bank. If you’ve been searching for affordable bedroom makeovers, you’ve come to the right place. You can get a complete glam bedroom for less at The RoomPlace. When giving your bedroom a glam makeover, you want to find the perfect furniture set. Our Hannah five-piece Queen Bedroom collection, includes a queen bed, dresser, and mirror for just $899! The dresser and headboard come in a champagne finish with pearl stipple texture and faux crystal buttons for added luxury. Nothing says glam like diamonds, which is why the top drawers feature a diamond pattern shape, and the faux crystal-accented knobs and handles add a touch of sparkle to your bedroom. The dresser is topped with a beautiful beveled mirror.
Want to do a glam makeover with more than just your bedroom? Add some glam to the rest of your home with furniture pieces like the Duffy Chair, which features chic faux white fur and clear acrylic legs. You can also never go wrong with the classy primavera and tempered glass combination of the Angelina End Table.
What do you consider when you are choosing a place to buy furniture? We’re sure you probably think about the quality, cost, delivery options, financing, warranties, selection and reputation of the brand and/or furniture retailer. Is it fair to say that those are the most important factors? Maybe not. Have you ever considered not purchasing furniture from a retailer because they aren’t green, as in eco-friendly?
With the changes in the earth’s atmosphere, the concept of “going green” has gone from being a craze to being a lifestyle change for many people. Blue recycling bins can be found virtually everywhere, along with people who are willing to play their part to save our environment. However, saving our environment only begins with the small things that can fit into a can. What about larger items, such as a mattress, living room furniture or bedroom furniture? Do you think recycling furniture is eco-friendly?
How do I dispose of old furniture?
There are quite a few ways you can dispose of your old furniture to make room for a new set. If your furniture is still in decent condition, one of the best and most eco-friendly ways to get rid of it is by selling. This might take a little longer than calling a junk removal company, but it’s better for the planet. Plus, it will give you some extra money to spend on new The RoomPlace furniture. When you have furniture that’s in less-than-great condition, consider recycling. Not all furniture is easy to recycle, but you can usually find a way to do it depending on the base materials. For example, metal can be taken a scrap dealer.
How do I dispose of old mattresses?
If you’ve been browsing our selection of The RoomPlace mattresses and are wondering what to do with your current one, you have a few options. Mattresses aren’t something you usually want to sell, and depending on your state, there can even be some legal restrictions for selling a used mattress. This doesn’t mean you have to take a trip to the dump, though.
Here’s an interesting fact: While mattresses are one of the most difficult items to recycle, “95% of the material in mattresses is recyclable. Metal springs can be recycled and the steel reused. Polyurethane foam can be shredded and used for carpet pads and insulation. Wood in foundations can be processed by wood chippers used for fuel or mulch. (Source: Enviro-Recycle)” Powered with that knowledge, let us ask what do you think about recycling your old mattress. Would you go through a few extra steps to make sure your mattress is disposed of in an eco-friendly way? Or better yet, will your furniture retailer recycle your old mattress?
Do I have to call a private service to get rid of my old mattress?
You don’t always have to use a private service to dispose of your mattress. The furniture store you’re buying from will likely pick up your old mattress when they deliver your new one. However, it’s what they do with your mattress that matters.
While many companies prefer just throwing away that old mattress, The RoomPlace and our 300,000 square foot Distribution Center is playing a role in protecting our planet by being eco-friendly and recycling it. In fact, we are not only recycling mattresses, but The RoomPlace also recycles the packing materials such as the cardboard, Styrofoam and the plastic that is used to protect your bedroom or living room furniture prior to delivery.
Now, this is no small feat as the Distribution Center is responsible for supporting 21 stores within the Chicagoland and Indiana area. That means literally tons of recyclable material enter and exit those doors daily. For a better understanding of how much is recycled on a monthly basis, let’s review the numbers:
The Room Place recycles 41.835 tons of cardboard per month on average.
Fun Fact: Recycling 1 ton of cardboard saves 9 cubic yards of landfill space and 46 gallons of oil. (Source: Earth911)
Monthly The Room Place recycles 675 pounds of Styrofoam per month on average.
Fun Fact: A male Siberian Tiger (Amur Tiger) typically weighs between 450 – 675 lbs. (Source: Pittsburgh Zoo)
1,116 pounds of plastic is recycled through The Room Place’s Plastic Bailer Per Month.
Fun Fact: 1,116 pounds is equivalent to lifting 11 couches or 13 love seats from the Bravado Collection. By the way, the Bravado Living Room Collection is made of eco-leather and from an eco-friendly manufacturer.
Bedrooms are always my favorite rooms to design. I love how personal the spaces become and that they truly are for the people who live there. A lot of clients want to redo their living rooms or dining rooms because that’s what their guests see but spending time designing a beautiful bedroom for yourself is the epitome of #selfcare.
Where to Start
This bedroom design is all about sophistication and peace. I started with the statement Cordelia bed because it brings in such drama. I love the exaggeration of the height of the headboard as a play on scale. To keep the rest of the room serene I’d paint the walls a lighter grey to envelope the space and then continue with grey tones to keep the contrast low.
When designing a monochromatic room it’s important to keep the hues varied and the furniture items slightly different. That way you end up with a cool and collected design as opposed to a boring and run-of-the-mill styled bedroom.
How to Accessorize
Starting with a patterned rug like the Seville in dove grey on the floor and then flanking the upholstered bed with large nightstands in a slightly darker shade help create that layered feel. I went even darker with the Kellen dresser to be able to stand up to the large bed and not get lost.
Since every room needs some color and life, I saw these beautiful Dupree lamps in a shimmery blue and thought they were perfect! They act like the jewelry to a great outfit finishing it off. I used a plaid chair in a similar blue to keep your eye moving around the room. Throw a turquoise pillow on the bed to complete the look and add a fiddle leaf fig (I always use a live plant in my designs) in the corner and you have a peaceful retreat made just for you!
An adjustable base is exactly what it sounds like! A bed frame that adjusts based on YOUR needs! No more propping yourself up with a million pillows to watch TV or work on your laptop, just touch a button and the bed will form to your needs. All of the RoomPlace’s adjustable bases will customize your bed for the ultimate relaxation!
Why Should You Get an Adjustable Base?
If you’re thinking “I don’t need an adjustable base, I’ve been fine without one my whole life” then think again! There are no special requirements to need an adjustable base, everyone can benefit from one! Some of the benefits include but aren’t limited to:
Avoiding Back Pain – Adjusting your sleep position to more closely match the contour of your body can help alleviate back pain.
Increase relaxation and circulation – Utilizing the massage feature in some bases, you can melt stress away simply from lying in Zero-G position and activating the massage feature.

Enhance Productivity – Sit comfortably for house while you burn the midnight oil on your laptop, smartphone, or watch TV.
Get Better Sleep – Adjust to the position that’s right for you, allowing longer and deeper sleep!
After reading some of the benefits an adjustable base has to offer we know you’re eager to make that change! And that change won’t cost you a fortune either – our adjustable bases start at the low price of $499! Now what else could be holding you back?! Improve your sleep TODAY!
In 2019, Windy City Live and The RoomPlace partnered up to launch the “Change of Space” contest that gave one lucky winner an entire room makeover! Winning the contest was a complete surprise to Traci Smith, since her son Jordan, was the one who entered his hard-working single-mom in the contest! Leading up to winning the “Change of Space” contest, Traci lived in her apartment for a whole year without any living room furniture – one of the many sacrifices she made to give her son the best she could. Traci was greeted with great enthusiasm by the Windy City Live host, Val Warner, where she was then taken on a shopping spree at our largest and newest RoomPlace store at Lincolnwood Town Center. After exploring the whole store, Traci found her picture perfect living room set to complete her room makeover! Check out the Windy City Live Show segment of Traci receiving her living room makeover here: https://abc7chicago.com/home/the-room-place-gives-single-mom-apartment-makeover/5585231/
Getting to Know Jordan
None of this would have been possible if it wasn’t for Traci’s son, Jordan! We were lucky enough to get the opportunity to reconnect with Jordan and hear what he has been up to since entering his mom in the “Change of Space” contest. Jordan is a 21 year old hard-working young man who enjoys being active! Whether it’s participating in basketball, baseball or soccer, Jordan is up for the challenge. Jordan will be entering his senior year of college at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI) to complete his degree in Health Sciences, but it doesn’t end there! Jordan plans to expand his education by pursing a career in pharmacy. Throughout the summer and into his senior year, he plans to take advantage of his Pharmacy Technician license in training by gaining experience and learning the ins and outs of being a pharmacist.
When we asked Jordan what his goal in life was, he shared that being able to provide for his family and give back to his mom is his ultimate goal. Additionally, he informed us that the RoomPlace and Windy City Live were able to help him start accomplishing his goal when his mom was awarded the Florence collection living room set complete with all the accessories, wall art and rug to complete the transformation! The RoomPlace was, and is, honored to support Jordan in achieving his goals!
Last year, without hesitation, Jordan wanted to find a way to give back to his mom, so it is only appropriate to return the favor. This time, the RoomPlace is honored to give Jordan a leg up by helping him upgrade a bedroom for himself! Jordan chose our best-selling Denver Bedroom Group, that is available in both white and gray. Jordan thought white would go best with his room! Again, we want to congratulate Jordan on being accepted into the Health and Sciences Program at IUPUI and we hope your new RoomPlace bedroom set suites you well! We also want to thank Shay and her team at our Merrillville, Indiana location for assisting Jordan in finding the perfect bedroom set!
The bedroom is a place to sleep, but it’s also so much more. For some, it doubles as a place to unwind and watch TV. For others, it’s a blissful retreat or a cozy home office. The layout of a bedroom needs to reflect the function of the space, and these layout ideas from The RoomPlace can help you align the two.
Determine Bedroom Function
You know a bed is going to be part of your bedroom set, but other furniture pieces may vary. Determine how you want to use the room so you can pinpoint the pieces you need.
For a place to unwind, you may want an entertainment center with a TV and music options.
Place the Bed: As the largest piece of bedroom furniture, the bed needs to be placed first. Where you place it depends on the location of the doorway and the size of the room. Put the foot of the bed closer to the doorway than the head of the bed. Large bedrooms work well with beds placed in the corner for a cozy feel, while smaller and medium-sized rooms make the most of space with the bed against the wall opposite the doorway.
Balance the Room: Balance out the room by placing the second-largest piece of furniture opposite the bed. This could be a dresser, entertainment center or desk, depending on the function of the bedroom. In smaller bedrooms, leave the wall opposite the bed devoid of furniture to maximize available space.
Add Nightstands: Regardless of your bedroom’s overall function and theme, nightstands are both handy and attractive. Place one on either side of the bed if you have enough space.
Consider Function: Determine what activities you need to do in the room, and arrange furniture in a way that makes them work. If you plan to watch TV in your bed, for instance, you’ll want the TV or entertainment center in an area where you can easily see it. If your bedroom functions as your home office, make sure the desk is easily accessible and near storage cabinets you may need.
Consider Comfort: Asses any areas that may be drafty or overly hot, such as near a window or directly below a vent. Avoid placing your bed in those areas. Sunlight can also play a role in furniture placement, as you may not want the morning sun streaming directly in your face or the evening sun streaming directly on your TV.
After you review all the items on the list, your bedroom layout will be ready to go. Add wall art, an area rug, plants and other extras as desired to emphasize the overall theme and pull the entire look together. Enjoy your personalized sanctuary for sleeping—and so much more. Browse for furniture at The RoomPlace to get started now.
When it comes time to purchase a new mattress, you’ll have a lot of different — and occasionally confusing – buying options to sort through. Regardless if you’re buying a mattress for yourself, your children, or anyone else in your family, you’ll have to make decisions about when to get rid of your old mattress, what size or type of mattress suits your family best, and then arm yourself with some basic mattress know-how to help you choose wisely.
Here’s a handy mattress buying guide that will simplify the purchasing process by giving you a little insight as to what type of mattress will work best for your particular sleeping needs.
When and Why You Should Replace Your Old Mattress
Unsure if you should replace your mattress or not? If that’s the case, there are a few key points you should pay attention to. If you’re experiencing back pain, restless or uncomfortable sleep, or notice visible damage to your mattress, that’s a clear sign it might be time to buy a new one.
While the longevity of a mattresses varies depending on the materials used (for example, a latex or custom foam mattress will typically last longer than a pillowtop mattress), the average life of a mattress is 7-8 years. If your mattress is older than 8 years, or too small for your growing children, or getting a little crowded as you toss about next to your significant other, you should consider upgrading.
How Sleep Position Determines Mattress Type
Size, weight, and the position you customarily sleep in are all factors you’ll need to ponder before shelling out your hard-earned money for a new mattress. People who sleep on their back or stomach tend to favor a firmer mattress that offers exceptional support, while folks who like to cozy up their side frequently prefer a comfy, pressure-relieving softer mattress to cradle them.
And then we have “combination sleepers” and men and women of differing sizes. Combination sleepers, who change position throughout the night, can benefit from a memory foam or hybrid mattress that adjusts to the contours of their varying positions, while heavier sleepers will likely get better rest with a firmer mattress with lumbar support that supports their weight, while keeping them from overheating at the same time.
Choosing the Right Mattress Size
The mattress size you ultimately choose will depend on the size of the person or the number of people sleeping on it, if you’re sleeping solo or sharing, the size of your bedroom, and if your pets (cats, dogs, maybe even a snuggly rabbit or two) sleep with you.
From the smallest to the largest, these are the standard mattress sizes you’ll find in the US:
Twin 39″ X 75″
Twin XL 39″ X 80″
Full 54″ X 75″
Queen 60″ X 80″
King 75″ X 80″
California King 72″ X 84″
So, a little common sense applies when deciding on the correct mattress size. A smaller person (or child) in a cramped space would probably do just fine with a Twin or Twin XL, while a couple, or someone who’s tall or tosses and turns while they slumber — like they’re on a rowboat on a turbulent ocean — might do better with a big ole California King.
Distinguishing Between Different Mattress Materials and Quality
As you’ve probably already gathered, mattresses can be constructed out of a variety of materials or combinations of different materials, and it’s important you understand the primary differences between them.
Here are some of the most common mattress core and comfort layers in use today, which you’ll run across while shopping online, or in person at a brick and mortar store:
Latex mattresses offer an incredible level of relaxation and relief from back pain, but their higher cost and heavier weight (often making them difficult to handle) sometimes puts people off. The main advantages of sleeping on durable, long-lasting latex (made from rubber trees) come from this spongy material’s ability to keep sleepers cool, while also keeping their spines supported and aligned.
Mattresses made with memory foam (usually a better choice than polyfoam, which is less durable, and offers less support), absorb motion better than latex. A memory foam core also excels when it comes to molding to your body, and providing substantial joint and pain relief. One con is the fact that foam mattresses aren’t as cool as latex, and tend to sag and show depressions earlier on.
Also known as a coil mattress, innerspring mattresses — made out of steel coils — are found everywhere, and were the go-to sleeping surface back in the day, and are still very common today. The quality of this type of mattress depends on the number of coils and number of coil layers deployed to support your weight, as well as the materials (latex, gel memory foam, etc.) used for the comfort layers, which will of course affect the overall price.
A hybrid mattress is any mattress that combines at least two different kinds of support systems. An excellent example of this is a mattress with an innerspring core with a foam or latex comfort layer. Hybrid mattresses, which are usually reasonably priced, are the ideal choice for people who want to preserve the feel of a traditional mattress, but still take advantage of the pain relief, motion reduction, and other benefits foam and latex offers.
Factors to Consider When Shopping for a New Mattress
While other mattresses choices are available, like pillowtop and gel foam mattresses, we’ve covered the fundamentals about mattress types, size, and construction materials, along with the pros and cons associated with the most common mattresses on the market today.
Of course, price, customer reviews and the quality of the warranty offered should go into your final mattress-purchasing decision. But with a little research and some common sense, you should be able to hunt down a mattress that’s right for you or your loved ones, guaranteeing that everyone gets a good night’s sleep.
