What type of bed is right for you?

When you decide that it is time to get a new bed, there are so many things that you need to consider and factor into your decision making.

One of the main things to think about is what type of bed you want, and with such a wide variety of different types of bed, it can be difficult. It is important that the bed ‘looks right’ with your bedroom’s design. However, it also needs to be comfortable and provide the person who intends to sleep on it with an appropriate level of support.

Divan beds

There to provide the mattress with support is a divan base. It is important when purchasing this type of bed, to make sure that the mattress and base work together to give comfort and support. Divan beds are often available with drawer storage incorporated into them, a great function for helping to keep the bedroom free from clutter.

Storage beds

Some beds are made to house additional storage. Some have incorporated drawers like with divan beds. Some are an ‘ottoman’ style where the whole mattress lifts to reveal storage space underneath, which are great for storing larger items.


Bedsteads are a more decorative option and consist of a freestanding frame that has sprung or static slats for the mattress to rest on. Static slats offer a firmer support to its occupant, and sprung slats have more ‘bounce’.
