Bed Style

There are many bed styles from simple beds to elaborate beds, large beds to small beds and metal beds to wood beds. Bed style is a matter of preference and personal taste. When selecting a bed style there are many factors to consider like the size of the bedroom, the ceiling height, the bedroom décor, the bedroom lighting, the bed size, size of the person/couple sleeping in the bed, even the location – if you're looking to put a bed lounger in a sunroom then you're dealing with a whole different type of bed. Ideally, the bed should complement the décor and be proportionate to the bedroom size to offer the most comfortable sleep. The bed is the focal point of the bedroom. The bed style will dictate the style of the bedding and that of other bedroom furniture. When combined these pieces set the overall style, aesthetics and ambiance of the bedroom.

The style of your bed is going to affect the way people perceive you. It will show a lot about your lifestyle and the designs you are interested in. When choosing your bed style there are a number of things to consider:

  1. Type of Bed - Do you want a canopy bed, sofa bed, Murphy bed, day bed, feather bed or maybe a four-poster bed? There are endless designs and styles to choose from. Choose carefully, this will have the greatest impact on the overall appearance of your room.


  2. Bedding - Your bedding will include your sheets, comforters, bedspreads, bed skirts and any other form of bedding accessory. This too will have a great impact on the overall look of your bed. The designs and styles you choose for your bedding should match your pillows and the rest of bedroom décor.


  3. Pillows - Your pillows can either compliment or match your bed, bedding and bedroom. Although most people agree that your pillows should match, there are many who believe that contrasting the pillow colors and designs with the décor of your room can spice it up and make it look more unique.


  4. When it comes to the style of the bed there are many to choose from and you will be sure to find a style that suits you perfectly. You may have to look for a while but don't settle for something you don't really like.

    If you're looking for something super modern and expensive, the new floating magnetic bed is inspired by the mysterious monolith in Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey. Both the floor below and the bed itself have magnets built in that repel each other, causing the bed to actually float. It's tethered in place by fine steel cables and will run you somewhere in the neighborhood of $1.5 million!
