Guide: Questions you should deal with before buying a 140×200 bed

Is a 140×200 bed suitable for two people?

This question is indeed somewhat difficult to answer, because several factors play a role here.
Depending on whether you need more or less space to sleep or how big your sleeping partner is and how often you sleep in the same bed together, it can be almost too small for two people.

In principle, a 140×200 bed is already suitable for two people – in the long run, however, it could become a little too narrow, depending on body size. Now and then, however, this is no problem at all and then it’s just a little more cuddly.

However, if you or she do plan to maintain this bed size in the long term, it is advisable to buy two different mattresses of 70 cm each – these can then be perfectly adapted to your lying and comfort requirements and do not wear out as quickly as a continuous

Did you know that a 140×200 bed is called a French bed in Germany?
In the USA, for example, a 140×200 bed is also called a full-size bed, in England a double bed if it is at least 140 cm wide and 190 cm long.

Some manufacturers also offer these together with a partner cover so that no one has to lie in the crack.

Of course you can also use two different slatted frames á 70 cm for the two mattresses.

Is a 140×200 bed also suitable for children?

In principle, any size of bed is suitable for children – but whether this is necessary, you must decide for yourself.
Teenagers
A 140×200 bed can be purchased without hesitation for children in adolescence. One thing is certain: your child will be very happy about the space and additional comfort. Overnight guests will even find room in it.
Infants
This bed size is actually less suitable for small children, unless a fall out protection is fitted if the bed does not already have raised posts or a grille.
The fall out guard is simply attached to the bed frame or under the mattress and can be attached to and removed from any bed.
Due to the large space available, however, the blanket may be lost more quickly – so it is best to try to observe your child’s sleeping behaviour at first.

In what heights is the 140×200 bed available?

As a general rule, the higher the bed, the more comfort when getting in and out. In addition, these beds are also more gentle on the joints and back.

In the case of beds, there are of course initially fixed heights depending on the model and type of bed – the standard height is about 45 cm, the height for ideal entry and exit is about 55 cm.

Box spring beds, for example, have a height between 50 and 70 cm. From 50 cm the height of a bed is also called comfort height.

A height of 50 cm is recommended for senior citizens, wheelchair users and patients in need of care even a height of 55 cm.

If you like it high when you start and low when you sleep, a height-adjustable bed is probably just right for you.

Where can I buy a 140×200 bed?

What does a 140×200 bed cost?

The price of a 140×200 bed depends primarily on the type and material of the bed.

Some manufacturers already include slatted frames and mattresses – in this case the price of the bed seems very expensive at first.

The best thing to do is to compare prices and find out about the individual costs in order not to pay too much for the whole package.
For a better overview, we have summarized the prices for each type of bed in a table below. These are however without accessories.

Of course, here too, there are no upper limits to the prices – more expensive is always possible.

Nevertheless, you should always pay attention to reviews of the inexpensive models or, at best, test the stability of the bed yourself – cheap may also mean cheap materials and workmanship!

What alternatives are there to a 140×200 bed?

Decision: What types of 140×200 beds are available and which one is right for you?

In principle, 140×200 beds can be divided into the following types:

  • Box spring bed
  • Functional bed
  • Futon bed
  • Cushioned bed
  • Solid wood bed
  • Metal bed

The difference between the six types lies initially in the structure, but also in the material and design of the bed.

In the following paragraphs you will learn about the advantages and disadvantages of each species and which one is ultimately best suited for you.

What distinguishes a 140×200 box spring bed and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

A box spring bed is completely different in construction from a conventional bed.

The frame is usually made of solid wood. The lowest level of the bed is not the slatted frame, but a box consisting of spring cores.

On top of this lies the mattress, usually a 7-zone mattress, which supports each part of the body individually. On top of this is finally a topper.

If you like to lie soft, you should choose a Klimalatex Topper, otherwise opt for cold foam.

The lying height of a box spring bed is about 50 – 70 cm – a comfortable entry and exit is given with this bed in any case.

Advantages

High comfort
Back-friendly
Convenient entry and exit
Unique
Durable

Disadvantages

Expensive

What distinguishes a 140×200 functional bed and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

Functional beds normally consist of a bed frame, slatted frame and mattress – but the base is different.

There are also functional beds, which are equipped with an additional pull-out bed and thus offer space for overnight guests.

Advantages

Storage space
Space-saving
Affordable

Disadvantages

Massive design
Always consist of wood

What distinguishes a 140×200 futon bed and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

Futon beds originally come from the Japanese room – there it consists only of a mattress and blanket, without a bedstead.

But don’t worry – in this country futon beds have both a frame and a slatted frame. However, the lying surface is the lower and as close to the floor as possible.

The frame height is not more than 30 cm. A headboard is also not available on most models.

Futon beds are often found in teenage bedrooms because of their minimalist design and simplicity.

Advantages

Minimalist, timeless design
Space-saving
Super suitable for young people

Disadvantages

Entry less comfortable
Less back friendly

What distinguishes a 140×200 upholstered bed and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

Cushioned beds are, as the name suggests, upholstered and covered with fabric.

The frame of upholstered beds is originally made of wood – this is then upholstered to a greater or lesser extent, depending on the model, as are the head and footboards.

The bed is then completely covered with fabric, leather or artificial leather. However, there are also upholstered beds where the head or foot part is not upholstered, but the rest is.

Advantages

Comfortable
Many different designs
Leather easy to clean

Disadvantages

No change of mattress with fixed upholstery
fabric cover difficult to clean

What distinguishes a 140×200 solid wood bed and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

Solid wood beds consist, as the name suggests, of hard, solid wood such as oak or beech.

There are also soft solid wood beds made of fir or spruce – these are often cheaper, but they also make noise faster.

This type of 140×200 beds are particularly durable and stable, which is a great advantage especially for double beds.

Advantages

Timeless design
Modern
Stable
Durable

Disadvantages

Depending on the type of wood expensive

What distinguishes a 140×200 metal bed and what are its advantages and disadvantages?

Metal beds are probably the cheapest alternative among all models presented. They are available in many different colours and designs – from classically simple to romantically playful, really everything is there

A disadvantage, however, is that the screws may have to be retightened more often so that the cruel squeaking disappears again.

Of course you can also spend a fortune on metal beds – these models are then very solid, stable and usually do not start to squeak.

Advantages

Purchase criteria: You can compare and rate 140×200 beds based on these factors

Buying a 140×200 bed can be a long and tedious process – too many different models, materials and features to choose from.

To keep track and make the right choice, you can use different criteria when buying your bed:

  • Establishment
  • Material
  • Resilience
  • Gestaltung

What the criteria mean and how you can use them to make a purchase is explained in the following paragraphs.

Establishment

Good stability is essential for a bed – after all, you want to enjoy it for a long time.

If you do not have the possibility to test the bed, it is best to rely here on the reviews from the Internet or on experience reports from your environment.

Material

Material and stability go hand in hand – good material also means that the bed is certainly more stable than beds made of cheap material.

Of course, you also have to think about which material is best suited for you and your needs in the long run. Above we have already listed all the advantages and disadvantages of the different types and materials.

With a bed for children it is first and foremost important to use a very robust and easy to clean material.

If you spend a lot of time in bed, work or read in it, an upholstered bed is probably just right for you.

Resilience

Many manufacturers mark the beds with load capacity limits. Of course, it always depends on whether you use the bed alone or as a couple.

Even if one only accommodates an overnight guest from time to time, the bed must be able to bear more weight.

There are also 140×200 beds with higher load limits especially for overweight people. These are also marked in this way by the manufacturer and can usually withstand a weight of 180 – 200 kg.

Gestaltung

The design of the bed is also an important purchase criterion – of course, the bed should also match the rest of your furnishings. After all, a bed is not something you buy every two years.

Only you know your style of furnishing and your taste best. Even if your decoration or the style of your home changes, you still know best what you will and won’t like in a few years’ time.

Wooden beds are timeless and adapt to almost any interior design style, the colour white, but also black can be combined with anything.

So if you like to experiment and want to give your home a new touch more often, you should rather go for this material and colours.

If the bed is intended for your child, it should of course be timeless and simple, as these tastes change very quickly.

Trivia: Worth knowing facts about the 140×200 bed

Can I build a 140×200 bed myself?

Yes, you can also build your own individual 140×200 bed – there are no limits to your imagination.

Whether material, colour, design – everything is in your hands and costs only a fraction of what you would possibly spend for a finished bed.

In the following we present a few possibilities to give you a little inspiration.

Bed made of Euro pallets

Who does not know them, the furniture from euro-pallets. Not only are they super easy to build, they also look pretty cool!

You can also paint the pallets to your liking and give the bed a very special touch.

Simply place as many pallets on top of each other and next to each other as you like and you can put on your mattress and feel comfortable in your new sleeping place.

How such a bed made of euro-pallets can look like, you can see in this video:

Functional bed

Instead of a functional bed, you can easily create your own 140×200 bed from shelves, cupboards or small drawers.

Simply use the pieces of furniture as bedsteads and build in as much storage space as you like. Just make sure you arrange all the furniture so that nothing moves and everything is stable.

It is best to screw the individual elements together to create a complete bedstead! This way you can also provide more stability!

These were exemplary two very simple ways and ideas for your own bed. Of course, you can also build a real solid wood bed yourself, but a little more craftsmanship is required here.

How to do this, which tools and material you need, you can easily read in the continuative sources under point 1!

Which blanket is best for my 140×200 bed?

Duvet

With the choice of the ceiling it is of course again primarily decisive whether you alone […]

On the basis of the following table we will show you which blanket is best suited for you or for you in which case and between which sizes you can make a choice at all.

Depending on whether you would like to sleep in pairs or alone under one blanket, two normal blankets will of course fit into a 140×200 bed – it may just get a little cold if your blanket is stolen or falls out of bed.

Did you know that the standard sizes for duvets in Austria and Switzerland differ from ours?
In Switzerland the standard size is 160×210 and in Austria 140×200, and in France you even sleep with only two sheets, without any bedding.

Bedspread

Bedspreads for your 140×200 bed are of course also available. Ideally, the blanket should hang down to the floor on both sides of the bed – that’s why it is larger than the normal bedding.

Depending on the height of the mattress and the actual width of the bed, this is of course more or less the case.

Bedspreads for 140×200 beds are most often offered in the sizes 180×200, 180×220 and 180×240.

Which mattress is best for me?

If the mattress and slatted frame are not yet included with your bed, you can choose between different types of mattresses:

  • Latex
  • cold foam
  • Viscose foam
  • Gel
  • Federkern

You can read more about the different types of mattresses and which one is suitable for you under point 2 in the further sources.

In addition, you have the choice between different degrees of hardness – through this marking the manufacturer indicates how hard or soft a mattress is.

You can determine which degree of hardness is best suited to you based on your body weight. Here is a short overview:
