Have you tried asking for help on the sites where you downloaded the beds?

In order to better solve your problem, please go through the following as listed below:
General - Do the Game Problem FAQ
You appear to have not gone through our main Game Help:Game Problem FAQ. Please go through and do the steps on this FAQ, including any others that it links to (for example the Game Help:Game Problem-Problem Custom Content FAQ).
Usually, in the vast majority of cases, actually going through and doing the steps (doing, not just reading) fixes issues - sometimes you may be asked to remove custom content, or to patch - please rest assured that all of our FAQs have been tested by our staff and volunteers and we wouldn't suggest you do something unless it's been known to fix particular issues.
Does this only happen beds from those sites? What happens if you use Maxis beds?
On occasion you might be asked to do a long FAQ - please make sure you do all the steps and don't just skip over them. You'll often find that these long FAQs have all the details you need. If nothing in the above FAQs fixes your problem you may post again detailing exactly which you have done and which steps failed.

The problem is with beds that fits the size of shaklynīs lovebeds. I recently discover the same problem with a bathtube that itīs at floor level. I supose it
could be a lighting problem, but i canīt find any solutions.
I ask for that problem to the sites where i downloaded the objets, but i donīt have any answers of them. also i did the gp faq without any results ( at least any that where useful for my specific problem. I read it to solve others an it helps a lot).
Any way, if no one else have had this issue i know it will be difficult to solve it. So i think the best solution itīs not use those items.
Thanks to all.

Ahh, I see what you mean. This is the same issue with wall mounted items and the new AL feature- if you lower the lighting reference point below the level of the floor, it takes the lighting from the room beneath. If you have the item on a foundation, try putting a lamp in the foundation set to always on- effectively lighting the 'room' the object is being lit from.

Cool! I'm glad it worked. The only problem would be with Apartments- you may have difficulty keeping lights on in an apartment beneath your room.
