All about floating beds
What is so special about floating beds and what do you have to consider while buying? Here you can find out everything you need to know about it.
What is the floating bed characterized by?
Don't worry, floating beds don't float in the air and don't swing when you lie down. Floating beds have their feet are indented and hidden under the bed frame. This means that they are no longer visible from the front or the side.
This is how the beds give the impression of floating. This makes the design airy and light. The minimalistic appearance of a floating bed looks good in every bedroom.
An stable substructure, which is in no way inferior to conventional beds, is important for the construction of floating beds. We attach particular importance to this and have optimized our floating beds to this effect.
A nice side effect of floating beds is that you can always place the beds directly against the wall and do not have to worry about skirting boards.
The right floating bed for everyone
What all ekomia beds have in common is their simple and timeless form, which is oriented towards Scandinavian design. Nevertheless, we design with great attention to detail. Here you can read what distinguishes our floating beds. We hope there's something for every taste and budget.
Floating design bed
Our floating bed Schöneberg is made of noble wild oak and oiled with a natural furniture oil. All visible wooden surfaces of the floating bed are continuously glued, i.e. they are not made of small pieces of wood, but of optically appealing long wooden strips.
Thanks to the comfort seat height - which is as high as the seat of a chair plus a mattress that looks out - you can comfortably stay out of bed in the morning.
Thanks to the high-quality connections and the hard oak wood, Schöneberg is almost not destructible.
Schöneberg can be ordered as a simple frame or optionally with headboard and one or two bed drawers.
The bed drawers have slanted fronts so that they disappear as if invisible under the bed and retain the floating character of the bed.
The night table Charlottenburg fits optically to the floating bed Schöneberg. It is just as deep that the drawers can still be pulled out easily.
The inexpensive floating bed
The floating bed Swebe appears plain and white glazed. At an unbeatable price and you get a minimalistic but very stable bed frame. With a bed frame height of 32cm Swebe is rather low, so it does not look so much imposing in your bedroom.
Swebe is made of solid, certified pine wood. It is painted with an ecological white wood glaze, in which the beautiful wood grain of the pine shimmers through slightly. Quality compounds provide the necessary stability.
Optionally you can order for Swebe also a headboard and a suitable hanging bedside Table, which you can hang in the desired height on the wall.
Floating beds with storage space
The bed Luke is also made of solid pine with ecological glaze. With an integrated shelf at the foot end and a storage room with integrated bedside tables at the head, Luke provides plenty of storage space for books and everything you need for your comfort in the evening and at night.
The space under the bed can also be used across the entire width, e.g. for a guest mattress. However, there are no bed drawers for Luke. For this we recommend the bed Schöneberg with bed boxes.
Optionally you can order a head part for Luke.All floating beds at a glance
Fitting slatted frames and mattresses
In principle, you can use all commercially available slatted frames and mattresses for our floating beds. Only the Schöneberg bed cannot accommodate rolling slats for design reasons.
When the mattress sinks more, it looks a little more chic. If it sticks out higher, it feels more comfortable to sit on the edge of the bed. In the best case the mattress should sink in about half.
When you subtract the slat frame height and mattress height from the insertion depth, you know how far your mattress looks out.
We try to provide variable insertion depths for our beds if possible. The bed Swebe has a fixed insertion depth of 13cm, with bed Luke you can choose between 10 and 17cm and the bed Schöneberg is variable adjustable between 6 and 18cm.
Holistically ecological - as always with ekomia
Solid Wood lasts longer
We use solid wood for our beds only. Solid wood has a high strength and durability, which is especially important for floating beds due to its construction.
In addition, solid wood beds, unlike beds made of panel materials, can be easily repaired if something breaks down.
Our Nordic pine wood comes from beautiful Sweden and our oak from Poland. Both types of wood are FSC certified in FSC, which means that the forest there is managed as ecologically as possible and a new tree is planted for each tree taken.
Our floating beds are exclusively treated with ecological paints and oils from German production.
The pine wood is glazed white so that the grain of the wood still shimmers through slightly. This gives the beds a particularly natural and ecological appearance.
Whether white varnished or oiled wild oak, there are repair and maintenance kits for every wood, with which you can easily repair the surface of your floating bed if necessary. Basically our beds are easy to clean and do not need to be re-treated.
Production with experience
When manufacturing our furniture, we rely on partners who have many years of experience in the processing of solid wood beds and know exactly what characteristics and requirements for woods.
This is how our design and sustainability requirements merge with the many years of production know-how of our partners.
The correct insertion depth for slatted frames and mattresses
The insertion depth describes at which height - seen from the top of the bed - you insert the slatted frame. The insertion depth then determines how high the mattress looks out of the bed.
