Hanging beds are exploding in popularity these days. Not only are they cool to look at, they also come with benefits! Hanging beds that subtly rock back and forth provide great sleeping benefits that normal beds just can’t offer.
Rocking is proven to be a natural sleep aid starting way back at infancy. Mothers rock their babies in order to get them to sleep. This idea is transferred in a hanging bed by allowing movement and slight rocking to those who choose to sleep in them. There have been studies conducted that rocking improves dreams and helps to reduce the overall stress in your body. It is a safe, steady motion, allowing your vestibular system to feel calm and at peace rather than nervous. Hanging beds cradle you as you rest, allowing you to stay calm and get the best sleep of your life.
The only catch to hanging beds is that they require more space than a normal bed. You will need to choose a room in your house where there is enough height and width to accommodate the swinging motion. With this unique bed setup, hanging beds are often featured as the centerpiece in a room. For this reason, bedside tables, nightstands, and lamps that all normally reside right up against a conventional bed can not be placed next to the hanging bed. The ceiling needs to be able to support this bed as well. There are many factors to consider when choosing the location of your hanging bed.
