Bed Styles Guide

There are many styles of beds on today’s market. Often times buyers opt for the most basic model. They have things to do and don’t want to deal with having to choose from many different styles. However, the type of bed you use can have a big impact on your sleep, on the decor of your room, and on how you manage your space.

Platform Beds

Platform beds have extra support built into the frame. This allows you to sleep comfortably with only a mattress and no box spring. This might seem like a minor detail, but it has some big effects.

Without the need for a box spring, platform beds take up less space. This is ideal for smaller bedrooms. Even in large rooms, the extra space can be put to other uses, like storage. Many platform beds even have built-in underbed storage. This extra storage is possible because the space is not being taken up by a box-spring.

The lack of a box spring also allows for platform beds to have a lower profile, which gives them a sleek look. Platform beds come in a variety of materials and finishes.

Canopy Beds

We think our bedrooms as being cozy and safe, perfect for restful sleep. But in today’s world of electronic displays and thin walls, sometimes there are to many distractions to get a good nights rest. Canopy beds solve this problem by adding an additional layer of privacy to your bed.

A canopy bed has a ceiling built into its frame. You can hang curtains from this ceiling, and these curtains block out the noise and light that can be so distracting when you are trying to sleep. Canopy beds come in a variety of materials–both wood and metal frame–and in many styles. Most models start at full size beds and size up to kings.

Loft Beds

Loft beds are beds that are raised high enough to fit other furniture under them. They are like bunk beds, only without the bottom bunk. Loft beds are great for saving space, and they add a unique style to your room.

If you have a small bedroom, or if you just want to free up space, you should look into getting a loft bed. With standard beds, a lot of space is wasted. Beds have a large footprint, and there’s just not a lot you can do with the space above a bed. You can use the space under your bed for storage, but often this space is small. And underbed storage is different from having a functional, usable space. With loft beds, the footprint of your bed is basically reduced to zero because the area that the bed occupies can still be put to other uses.
