Position of your bed can show how poor you are

Position of your bed can show how poor you are

How you sleep at night says a lot about your wealth, apparently

There are endless ways to figure out how rich you are without having to sneak a peek at your bank account.

Handy ways of determining class can include figuring out what you call an evening meal, or if you drink Fanta or San Pellegrino.

But have you ever considered how your bed might factor into your wealth?

Have you thought about this?

On the face of it, you might assume it'd be obvious.

Somebody with a giant bed is rolling in dough - in addition to a seriously nice duvet too, I'd bet - while a poor person is sleeping on a lumpy mattress.

But according to one podcast, you determine how rich somebody is without even having to lie down on their bed.

It's all to do with what surrounds their resting place.


A podcaster explained it as such: "If you have a bedroom and your bed is not pressed against the wall.

"If you're at the point where you have the luxury of putting your bed just stupidly in the middle of the room.

"Island bed living, that's when you can tell you're rich."

Anyone else looking at their beds and trying to figure out how that correlates to their bank balance?

Most people tend to have at least one wall touching their bed - the one that meets the head of the bed.

The rest of us with rooms that aren't quite as spacious settle for another wall on one side of the bed.

And then if we're really pushed for space, we'll have to take three walls, leaving only room at the foot of the bed.

If you have four walls to your bed, you have a coffin at that point frankly.

At the end of the day, what makes most about your bed is the quality of sleep you enjoy while in it.

And if you're in a relationship, being able to enjoy those moments in bed together...if you catch my drift.

That being said, not everyone agreed with the podcaster's take, with one writing 'this is so dumb'.

"It's a funny take, but complete nonsense," said another.

While a third added: "I have the space for a bed island but what to pu behind the bed?"

According to The Sun, one in six British couples are 'sleep divorced' - meaning they are catching shut eye in separate beds.

I would try and calculate how many walls there would be for two beds, but my brain would explode.

Either way, it's not an ideal set-up for couples.

One suggested set-up was to use the Scandinavian sleep method in bed, to cut down on all the hogging, tugging and general frustration.
