The major room in the house is undoubtedly bedroom. A retreat from the buzzy world, place to relax and, definitely, a center of your house and home. With a wide range of beds available on FurniturePick, it’s a challenging task to find the right one for your home. We are here to shed light on the popular bed styles. Before choosing, you need to understand few things, which actually help you to make a right choice: your bedroom space, what functions you are expecting from the bed you want (whether you want it to be a spacious spot for relaxation, or you want it to have extra drawers to help you store the stuff) and distinctive features you’d like to see in a design of this furniture piece.
So, welcome to our guide to bed styles:
Platform Bed is the bed that sits lower to the ground and has a headboard but no footboard, might have a solid base or the delicate legs. The slats are used for support instead of a box spring, which adds unwanted height for this style.
Storage Bed has built in storage underneath the mattress area. It might have a storage space underneath a folding-back platform or it might have drawers built underneath. You can avoid too much furniture in a room by having a hidden storage right under your bed.
Upholstered Bed‘s headboard is covered with fabric or other soft material, making the bed comfortable. Some designs include all of the structural parts of bed upholstered, the others have only few sections of headboard upholstered.
Poster Beds have four decorative posts accordingly, rising up from each corner of the bed. The height of the posts ranges due to design and style, from very low posts clearing the mattress to ceiling height.
Sleigh Bed has distinctive arched shape of the headboard, footboard, or both. The curves of an old-fashioned sleigh gave the name to this bed style. The look is stunning, but you have to remember that this kind of bed shape claims additional floor space.
Panel Beds are usually with a tall decorated panel headboard, and sometimes footboard. They require a box spring to support the mattress. The crossbars made of wood or metal are spaced between the rails or bed frame to provide structural support, but not enough for mattress alone.
Canopy Beds feature the rising posts but with crossbeams that connect them at the very top. These kind of beds are best in rooms with tall ceilings. Traditional styled canopies have detailed scrollwork and curves, contemporary styled employ simple geometric design.
