Pallet Bed: Good Idea or Bad Idea?

Designers regard the pallet bed frame as a cheaper alternative to an actual bed frame. A pallet is normally made up of wood planks and used as a wooden carrier. It’s mostly found wherever there are cargos and basically, you only need to recycle these wooden planks to use for the bed. If you’re tight on the budget and unable to buy actual furniture, or if you have little design knowledge and creative output, the pallet would be convenient to use because you can simply just prop up a mattress over it.

In this freezing cold weather, having a heated blanket is more than a convenience. It’s a necessity. However, not many people are sold on an electric heated blanket because of the possible risks.

The Mermaid Bed

How eccentric would you have to be to have a bed like this? While it’s called The Mermaid Bed, we think it most appropriately resembles an oyster. Names and resemblance aside, however, it can’t be denied that this bed is truly one of a kind. Weird (or fun?) as it may look, someone actually decided this would be a good bed for their room.

Privacy Pop Tent

Looking at this oddly designed tent bed reminds us of caravans from the 19th century. But past or present, the idea behind this creation is to bring privacy into one’s sleeping area…that is, if having a bedroom isn’t enough privacy. (So, maybe you’re sharing it with someone, like in a dorm room?)

The Mattress Masseuse

It’s very common for people to get massages at home these days. But sometimes it’s quite uncomfortable to be lying down on the massage table. Personally, I prefer getting a home massage while settled on my own bed. But it also poses some problems, particularly with the neck and head part, where I sometimes have to lie down uncomfortably.
