Types of Beds







The most important thing that completes your bedroom is the bed. So that's the first thing that you want to choose, when you think of designing or redesigning your bedroom.
But with all those beds available at furniture stores you would probably have a hard time making your choice. Take a look at some trendy and sophisticated bed styles that you could choose from.

MAHARAJA BED

So you can't get yourself a palace in the city but you sure can feel like a princess in your bedroom. Get yourself a wooden bed with a beautifully carved headboard and legs.
Dark wood polish would give it that Indian antique look, taking you back to the times of the maharajas.
But remember, this kind of bed looks best in a spacious bedroom because they are quite large and usually dominate the room.
To complete the elegant look, drape your bed with silky bedsheets. But if you are not too sure about silk bedsheets, have  cotton ones below the day sheets.
The maharaja bed isn't really appropriate for a children's bedroom, as it tends to make the room look too formal.

PLATFORM BED

If you like the casual look for your bedroom, then go Bohemian with platform bed. These trendy beds look great in both pinewood and a deep dark polished wood. Team a neutral coloured bedspread with lots of shiny brocade or embroidered pillows and cushions. The contrast is totally funky. Throw a rug on the floor to complete the look.
You can also go all sophisticated with raw silk fabrics in subtle colours like beige, creamy white and pastel shades too.

BUNK BED

If your kids share a bedroom, a bunk bed would be just perfect.  Not only does it save space, but the kids will love taking turns to sleep on the upper bunk. But make sure that the upper bunk has a railing that is high enough so your little fellow doesn't roll off.
You also get cool theme bunk beds shaped like trains, sports cars and castles too... But your children may soon outgrow  kiddie themes. So if you don't want to change the bed too soon, stick to a simple design that will last longer.

WROUGHT IRON BEDS

Wrought iron beds come in a variety of designs that look extremely pretty. But the more elaborate the curves and corners, the more dust is likely to collect in them. So if your child is asthmatic or allergic to dust, make sure to clean it regularly.
Wrought iron beds are light and easy to move around in the room. But don't jump on the bed because the base may bend and result in backaches. Try having the base made of wood so that the bed is stronger and lasts longer.
You might land up spending quite a bit on wrought iron bed but don't expect too much if you plan on selling it later. The resale value of wrought iron furniture is really low.

SOFA CUM BED

Sofa cum beds are great space savers. If you have a one bedroom flat and your kids sleep in the hall, then this is a great option.
You can use it as a sofa all day and in the night you can turn it into a bed for the kids. It sure beats sleeping on the floor.

STANDARD WOODEN BED

The regular wooden bed with a plain headboard is the best bet if you plan to change the feel of your room at a spur. You can cover them with any fabrics and do up the room around them. These beds are perfect for anyone and can fit into the look of every room. Get them with storage at the bottom for all your linen.

DIVANS


If you don't want to use a sofa cum bed, try a divan in your hall or bedroom. If you place it by the window, it makes a great place to read. And you can sleep on them too. So you know where that unexpected guest can crash in the night.
Make them look inviting by throwing on a lot of plush pillows and bolsters.

FOUR POSTER BEDS


Four-poster beds can add a feeling of luxury to any bedroom. If it has a frame on the top, you can drape beautiful lace sheers on it. But if that's too fancy, then just throw on baby net. You can get them in beautiful pastels to soften the look of the room. It is a great way to keep the mosquitoes out too.  Add soft yellow light to complete the look of absolute luxury.
