buyer’s guide: finding your perfect bed
When it comes to finding your forever bed you need to be sure that quality, comfort, and style are all there. We spend a third of our lives tucked up under a duvet so it’s important to create a comfy and cosy haven that you can’t wait to curl up in. Read our guide for what to look for when choosing your perfect bed…
1. identify what you need
There’s plenty on offer when it comes to beds: divans, storage beds, upholstered beds, wooden beds, beds with valances – the list goes on. Try and identify the look you’re after before you begin your search to narrow down your options. A handy storage bed can be the perfect choice for rooms that are a bit short on space, where as an ultra modern and minimal wooden bed will suit a bright and airy room with lots of light. If you simply can’t decide, we find Pintrest or Houzz are always great places to start in order to gain some inspiration.
2. Measure your bedroom
It’s important that you find the right sized bed for the space you have available. A bed that is too small won’t fill the space, whilst a bed that’s too big may end up dominating the room. We suggest putting down some newspaper or masking tape to map out where you want your bed to sit. This will give you a better idea of the size you should be choosing.
3. Choose your style
From scandi chic to charming traditional, we have beds to suit all tastes. It’s important for a bed to complement its surroundings, whether that be through unifying the room or acting as a centrepiece. Sleek and minimal designs such as our new Valetta and Sophie look great in rooms without too much clutter.
If you’re looking for something with a bit more shape why not try our Angelica or Valetta bed. Both frames are reminiscent of traditional designs but their modern twists bring them into the 21st century.
4. Choose your fabric
Once you’ve found your frame it’s just a question of choosing your fabric! Choose from opulent velvets to laid back linens – it really is just down to taste. A solid headboard can look amazing in a patterned fabric whilst something with tufts and buttons is more suited to solid colours. It’s always a good idea to touch and try out the fabrics you are considering. Order up to eight free samples by clicking here >
