The Nevada is the most popular modern low bed in our range, perfect for creating a minimal, understated look in any bedroom or acting as a space saver in a loft or bedroom where headboard height could prove to be an issue.
In this blog I will look in detail at the Nevada, giving an overview of its dimensions, the tables and drawers that can be used with it and the most compatible mattresses for this bed base.
Nevada Bed Dimensions:
overall length: 2.05m for 2.00m long mattress; 1.95m for 1.90m long mattress
overall width: same as nominal size, e.g. a 1.50m Sonora is 1.50m wide
height to top of bed slats: 17cm
height to top of headboard: 54cm
height from top of bed slats to top of headboard: 37cm
clearance underneath the bed: 8.5cm
Due to the low profile of the Nevada and minimal headboard, it is important to pair the bed with a mattress that will not overwhelm the base. All of the mattresses in our range are between 16 and 20cm deep, allowing any to be used with this bed. If you decide to source a mattress from elsewhere, please keep in mind that the Nevada works best with a mattress that is at most 20cm in depth. Anything more than this and you run the risk of obscuring the headboard panel when pillows and a duvet are added. This would create the effect of the bed and mattress being out of proportion with one another.
When choosing a bedside table to pair with the Nevada base, it is important both to consider the dimensions of the table, (will it compliment the bed?) and your storage requirements in the room. Do you need somewhere to simply place a lamp or book, or is more storage space required? For the former I would suggest the Nevada table, which as its name suggests, was designed with this bed in mind; or if you prefer a more minimalist look, the Oregon table. For storage, our Low Cube table would be the perfect choice, combining a drawer and low shelf. Alternatively take a look at the Black Lotus low Cube tables – these will also suit the Nevada bed.
The Nevada is available in our full range of timbers, from sanded pine to walnut. Oak and the whitewash pine are popular choices here, with the former offering guaranteed durability and the latter helping to create an airy, minimalist look ideal for a loft room.
If, after reading this, you decide that the Nevada may not be the right choice for you as you require a higher headboard or more clearance underneath the bed, take a look at our Sonora and Sahara bed bases as alternatives.
If you are looking for more information about this stylish, low modern bed – take a look at the comprehensive customer review from Simon: “The bed itself is very well made, ours has survived 2 house moves and the arrival of 2 energetic kids without any issue. Its on its 3rd mattress, now, and is treated to one of comparative quality these days which makes it perfect. I really can’t remember a better long term investment that we have made as I just don’t see how our bed is ever going to need replacing. A bed for life!”
