Designer Bed Buying Guide
Get the best night’s sleep
A good night’s sleep is essential to our day-to-day lives.
We spend a third of our day sleeping so it’s important to choose the right bed that works for you.
Here, we look at everything you need to think about before buying a new designer bed. From bed frame to mattress size, we want to help you choose the right items, to make sure you get the best night’s sleep.
What works for you
Understanding your needs and requirements is the first thing to consider when purchasing a new bed. Think carefully about what you want.
Are you looking for a replacement bed for the main bedroom? Or is it for the spare room, where it will be used much less? Think about the bed’s surroundings. Also, think about how you like to use your bed when you aren’t sleeping. Or perhaps a built-in bedside table for your Sunday morning coffee might be important to you?
Finally, and most crucially, think about the way in which you sleep. If you feel trapped by tall frames, open styles are available, and vice versa. Thinking about the way you sleep is also important for when you come to choose the right mattress. More on this later...
Frame and style
Once you’ve decided what you need, you can think about style. Choosing the right frame is all about personal taste and preferred choice - and we have a fabulous range for you to choose from.
Upholstered beds offer supreme luxury, as well as exceptional comfort. Covers can often be removed and dry cleaned too, so there’s no need to worry about any breakfast mishaps.
These frames are endlessly versatile and will suit just about all interior schemes.
A leather bed radiates pure luxury and our range features only the finest quality.
If you rely on your bed for additional storage - and beds can be great for this - we have a collection of beds that are raised high enough to fit storage boxes underneath.
Choosing your mattress
As our lives get busier, time spent sleeping in our beds has become more and more precious. Guaranteeing a good night’s sleep not only comes down to the right frame but also the right mattress.
All mattresses offer different levels of support, tension and comfort and it’s important to get the one that’s right for you. We take a look at the two most important factors to consider when choosing a mattress.
First, think about how you sleep as this will determine how much support you’ll need for your back and head. There are all kinds of mattress designs on the market now, even dual tension mattresses that allow you and your partner to choose individual tensions to suit you both.
Secondly, think about how often the bed will be used. The mattress in a guest room will not need to be of the same quality as the mattress you use on a daily basis, for example. Below we have listed the three most popular mattress types with a brief description of what they are and how they work.
Bed linen and cushions
Changing your bed linen and adding some decorative cushions is an easy way to update and refresh your bedroom decor. Add plenty of colour and go for cosy textures and fabrics in winter, and cool, crisp linens in summer. Meanwhile, have fun mixing and matching prints and pillowcases for a richly textured style.
