Curling up in your bed after a hard day’s work is like an unplanned retreat. You know the next 8 hours (Or more, and it’s perfectly sane if it is) are going to be blissful. Now imagine if the bed was too small. Or not sturdy enough. Or the wrong size. Ugh. Even the thought makes you uncomfortable, right? Not only do we need a suitable bed, we also need to find beds that fit within our bedroom and our life.
The Simple Bed Frame
The most standard bed you can purchase is a simplistic bed frame that does not have a headboard and footboard. The frames of the bed have a flat panel of support beams that are kept together by the legs. This is a great option to consider if you want to customize your bed with a separate headboard or box spring. It’s a cheaper alternative but easily customizable and transportable if you’re constantly on the move.
The Wingback Bed
The exact opposite of a Simple bed frame is a wingback bed. It has a complex and rich feel to it. It has decorative panels on either side. The plush panel also works well with most room interiors. It’s a win-win!
Also known as Wall Beds, these beds fold up into a wall panel. Probably the greatest invention to not crowd your bedroom, a Wall bed is a great alternative for storage and space conservation in your bedroom. You can choose a closet or a bureau for the wall mount as per your liking.
The Open-Frame Bed
For those who can’t stand having non-supportive beds, this one is for you. An Open-frame bed has a headboard along with a footboard. One of the cool reasons to invest in this particular bed is its adaptive nature to any kind of a home. A notch higher than most beds in the chic category, an open frame bed is a breath of fresh air and gives an impressive and sophisticated look to your bedroom.
Remember when your parents got you a normal bed and you went to sleep imagining yourself to be in a safe space with cross-beams for fancy curtains that can be pulled over by your prince-charming when he comes to visit you? Canopy beds are for the people who did. This is the bed for the dreamers. It is fun to customize it with your choice of curtains, fabric, lights, and anything that adds to the picturesque, romantic mood that it creates. What is better than coming home to a dreamy canopy bed? I’ll wait.
The Bunk Bed
No list is complete without the mention of a bunk bed. The mystery, intimacy, and playfulness of a bunk bed are unparalleled. Not only can you do your own thing but you can also engage in banter with a friend at a sleepover or slyly throw a pillow at a cousin (If you have got good aim) Bunk beds are every kid’s bucket list and it would be cruel not to let them have one! The top bunk is usually accessible by a ladder and you can get creative with it. You can even customize yours to graphics and pop-culture designs.
Buying the wrong bed is like going on a bad holiday. It is bearable but you don’t have a great time. Instead of hurrying into buying one, do your research. You can narrow down your options to a few good ones. Then try the ones you like in person. After all, beds are an investment in sound sleep and you don’t want this investment to go bad, do you?
