Types of Bed

Types of Bed

We all have a standard picture in our mind that pops up when we think about a bed. When we start exploring what we want in more detail there are a diverse selection of beds with different looks, characteristics and comfort levels. We’ve profiled the following bedroom centrepieces below.

Divan bed

The most traditional bed on the market. Practical, functional and comfortable.

Divan beds consist of two main parts, which are connected by a support. The base is constructed with a wooden bracket material and is placed on the floor directly. The bed frame is nearly 3 feet high with a lift cover and provides ample space to store your bedroom items in an orderly fashion. Divan beds are very popular, practical and functional, and are also appreciated for their robustness and comfort. There is a wide selection of designs and styles of divan. You can find different types of storage such as drawer storage, sliders, zipper and link storage, etc. One thing to check is whether the headboard is included in your purchase or sold separately. Traditionally, divans were the bed of choice before other frame models such as leather and metal beds became widely available.

Sleigh beds are designed with beautiful, slender curves and a sleek appearance which is sure to bring a unique  style to your bedroom. Find the right furniture to complement your statement bed HERE. Sleigh beds are available in various materials such as wood and metal, but the most popular are leather. They are a perfect choice for modern or modern styled houses and can help to enhance the beauty of your room.

Sofa bed

Multifunctional set for modern life and more comfortable than you might think

A sofa bed is a multifunctional piece of furniture that plays the role of a normal sofa during the day and can be converted into a bed at night. There has been huge improvement of sofa beds in recent years with a greater focus on ease of conversion and comfort. Sofa beds are appreciated by consumers because of their different functions, such as storage space for surplus household items. People who live in small apartments find sofa beds an ideal product for dual functions. They make an ideal guest bed, especially when equipped with a comfortable mattress! You can also put a sofa bed in your nursery if the room does not have enough space for a normal bed and a sofa.

Futon bed

A sofa bed's cousin from the continent

A futon is a cushioned mattress that is used for sleeping and can be folded in the closet during the day, or back to a frame that serves as a seat. It is a traditional Japanese bed that saves you space and allows you to use your room for other purposes during the day. The modern improved shape of the futon comes with a wooden or metal frame to carry the futon mattress and hold it above the floor. The futon bed can be used as a sofa for your living room, study, guest room or wherever you need it, and it can be converted into a bed for a comfortable sleep. Futons are available in various colours with removable covers, so that they harmonise well with the existing colour scheme of your home.

Bunk Bed

Need to save space?

Bunk beds are designed specifically for more than one person and come in a variety of styles and designs. Bunk beds consist of 2 layers of bed frames, each frame being placed on top of the other frame and supported by a ladder. The main purpose of a bunk bed is to spare you horizontal space and accommodate more than one person. Bunk beds are also used in hostels, summer camps, student halls of residence and army barracks. Bunk beds are often used in children's bedrooms where they offer space-saving luxury. You will find a huge collection of bunk beds for children with different, amazing properties and styles. Wooden bunk beds are popular and white seems to be the latest fashion trend. Most bunk beds also have the option of splitting into 2 single beds, which is a great option later in the future when space is no longer a problem.

Cabin beds

Set sail in your child's room

Cabin beds are from the bunk family, but they have a single bunk bed with storage cabinets under the frame. Cabin beds are specially designed to help you manage the clutter in your children's bedrooms and save space. Cabin beds are available in a wide range of sizes, colours and styles and often have extendable beds that can pull out to be a separate or double bed, perfect for having visitors stay. See trundled beds for more like this.

Loft Bed

Only up top

Loft beds look similar to a bunk bed, but have only one bed frame on top, supported by iron or wooden bars, and offer free space under the bed frame, which can be used in different ways. For example, you can set up a small sofa or futon or chest of drawers and a pair of stools or even a desk. You will also find an extensive range of loft beds with integrated storage solutions and many other features such as a built-in desk, futon sofa, etc. Bunk beds are very functional and convenient for places with limited space.

Trundle bed

More space solutions

A trundle is also designed to provide intelligent space-saving solutions for your home. It is a movable bed that can be fixed under a different bed frame. A trundle is a pair of beds; one bed frame is slightly smaller than the other as it has to be rolled under the upper single bed. Twin beds can be split into two separate beds if required. Trundle beds are becoming very popular as they are considered the most functional piece of furniture to save space in bedrooms. Trundles are also known as Hurly beds or Truckle beds. Trundle beds can also be used as day beds, guest beds and bunk beds for children.

Cot bed

Secure sleep

A cot bed is specially designed for babies and very young children. A cot has a high limit at the edges to provide maximum protection for babies from falling out of bed. Baby cots are also  designed to be decorated with dangling toys and rattles. Baby cots are usually made of a variety of materials, mostly wood or metal. Because the cots are deep, they provide a safe place for small children to play and jump around within the boundaries. Modern cots also have removable panels so that the base bed can be used for longer as soon as a child is able to stay on the mattress at night and go out safely on their own.

Four-poster bed

Grand statement beds

The four-poster bed is a traditional antique bed made at the beginning of the 16th century. The bed is made of high quality wood and decorated with engraved artworks. Four-poster beds contain four long wooden poles that support the upper shade, which provides a cosy shelter for the bed. For a royal touch, put a four poster bed in your bedroom.

Canopy bed

The traditional full cover bed

A canopy bed resembles a four poster bed with the same antique look and four vertical wooden poles at each of the four corners to support the upper umbrella / panel. What makes it different is the decorative fabric that is placed over the top and covers the bed from all sides. Different fabrics can be used in a four poster bed such as mesh, chiffon and silk. Canopy beds are rarely used in traditional homes today as they are huge and not practical for bedrooms where space is a problem. Furthermore, these beds do not fit modern or contemporary themes. However, if you have got the room this is a serious investment piece.

Half-Tester beds

Traditional or ancient?

The family of four-poster beds also includes half test beds. What distinguishes them is that they have low feet, unlike traditional canopy beds. These beds are not particularly popular these days but might make a comeback in a modern hotel if it fits the theme.

Platform bed/ Panel bed

Breathe easy with this design

Platform beds or panel beds have a frame constructed with wooden slats to support your mattress without the need for a box spring. Platform beds are famous and admired for their simplicity and convenience and are mainly used in the USA. The wooden slats provide a flexible support for your mattress. In addition, it ventilates your mattress to avoid unpleasant odours. This way the mattress stays in good condition for years. Plated beds are not that heavy and therefore easier to move. Panel beds are available in a variety of styles to fit well with any type of interior decor. Platform beds are also available with storage solutions much like a divan.

Storage Beds

Did we mention storage?

As the name suggests, storage beds contain intelligent storage solutions for consumers. The storage bed is usually covered in real or artificial leather and offers plenty of space to store your belongings. Storage beds are available in a variety of styles. Some storage beds offer plenty of space under their slatted base and can be easily lifted up with an Ottoman gas lift. You can simply place your pillows, blankets and sheets in the predefined space, leaving your bedroom free. Some storage beds have large drawers on either side of the frame, where you can store linen, covers and accessories in an orderly fashion. Lack of space is a common problem nowadays, and storage beds are an intelligent solution to this problem. Storage beds are not just functional but also very sturdy and comfortable to provide a great night’s sleep. With space-saving luxury, storage beds are now available in many different styles and can add a touch of sophistication to your bedroom.

Beds With Storage

Day beds

Not just for night time

Daybeds resemble sofa beds or sofa beds in their appearance, but in reality serve as single or guest beds. Day beds actually play a multifunctional role; they can serve as a couch for sitting and relaxing and as a bed for a peaceful sleep. You can also use a daybed as a recliner, lounger or as the popular divan. Day beds are typically constructed with high quality wood or metal material. Some day beds are also wrapped in fabric or leather to make them look more attractive. Day beds come in a variety of designs and colours that not only offer fantastic comfort, but also enhance the beauty of your home.

Adjustable bed

Move to your desire

Adjustable beds can be adjusted in different positions to perfectly support your body. The bed offers you the possibility to raise or lower the foot and the head depending on the desired level of comfort. Adjustable beds are widely used in hospitals and nursing homes, but have also been used in homes in recent decades, as they are considered ideal due to their adaptive function, which provides relief from a range of conditions. If you suffer from muscular stress and back pain, an adjustable bed can ease the pain and stress by transforming into a comfortable posture according to your body requirements.

Murphy bed

Do you need floor space?

Murphy beds are folding beds designed specifically to cope with space constraints. You can store a Murphy bed in a vertical position in the corner of your bedroom or even in a cupboard. This way you can easily put other things in your room during the day. Murphy beds are an ideal piece of furniture to save space through intelligent use of vertical space. This is a perfect space-saving bed for smaller homes and flats. Some Murphy beds also contain storage units under the base that can be used when pulled vertically against the wall. As space constraints are a major problem nowadays, the popularity of Murphy beds is increasing constantly.

Air bed

Don't fall flat

Air mattresses are inflatable sleep mattresses that offer you the utmost comfort. Air mattresses are made of PVC or textile-reinforced urethane plastic. In the beginning, air beds were quite expensive, but now they are available at a very low price. Air mattresses are used as healing pillows against various disorders such as back pain, psychological stress, depression, etc. Air beds can be difficult to maintain, as a small cut leads to air leakage, so be sure to get some mending materials.

Water bed

Floating sleep

Waterbeds were originally developed for medical therapies, but now they are also in demand for domestic use. Waterbeds are good for back problems and other sleep disorders and can even help alleviate asthma attacks. A waterbed provides sufficient support for the critical points of your body, resulting in fewer twists and turns while sleeping.

Living Room Essentials

Living Room Essentials

An essential checklist to make your living room dream come true.

With so many options for furniture, accessories and decorations, it's not always easy to know how to fill your space. In addition, depending on your preferences and aesthetics, everyone will want something different to make your home feel like home. And with spatial constraints, some living rooms can accommodate more furniture than others.

Nevertheless, there are some things that we find essential that can and should integrate into almost everyone's living room or lounge. From living room furniture to entertainment consoles, accessories and decorations, this checklist helps you decide what to consider for your own home.

Living Room Furniture

Furniture is by far the most important part of your living room. Furniture occupies the largest space and is therefore often the first thing that strikes a person when they go into the living room. Although there are many different configurations, we believe that some living room furniture is simply essential for any home. The staples:

living room furnitureThe Sofa

The essential centrepiece requires its whole own section, but there is more to a lounge than what you slouch on. However, you can see some of our stunning sofas here.

View sofas and chairs >

The Coffee Table

People love coffee tables because they provide a central space for glasses, magazines, television remote controls and other paraphernalia. However, some prefer a more open living environment and opt for side tables instead of a coffee table. This is really a matter of personal preference, but we think coffee tables as well as side tables are all possible to include if you have the space.

Coffee tables come in many shapes and sizes, and you need to take your sofa and the size of the room into account when making this decision. Large, long sofas are usually best suited to long oval or rectangular tables, while modern sofas or large wrap-around sections can contain a square or round table. In addition, a round coffee table can "soften" a room with many hard, square lines.

Size is an important factor in choosing a coffee table. If your table is too high or too short, it interacts awkwardly with your sofa, creating functional and stylistic discrepancies. To play it safe, choose a coffee table that is the same height or slightly higher than your sofa. To feel more relaxed, try a slightly lower table, certainly if you don't mind it being a secondary footstool!

Functionality and style are the two main factors to consider when choosing a material for your coffee table, usually influenced by your other ‘housemates’. So if you have small children, perhaps glass shouldn't be on the list. If you don’t usually use coasters, maybe steer away from beautifully-finished wood. Be sure to choose a coffee table material that not only looks and feels good alongside the other pieces in the living room, but also makes sense functionally.

lamp tablesSide Tables

In addition to a coffee table, side tables can be a nice, seamless way to add a surface to a room. Especially in larger living rooms with longer sofas, side tables are great because they provide space to store drinks, etc. Consider coordinating the colours and style of your living space with your coffee table and choose a height that matches your sofa and chairs. Matching nests of tables offer an easy option.

View side tables >

Other Chairs and Recliners

Accented chairs and loungers are great ways to offer your guests more seating in a living room. They should complement your sofa, so consider making that bigger purchase first. Some sofa chairs are included in the set with your sofa, so choose this option to make life easier. Alternatively, adding chairs is a good option, as long as you match their style to that of your sofa. Also be sure to plan in advance where you could place the chairs. You don't want your living room to feel too cramped, but conversely, adding chairs is a great way to fill additional negative space.

TV Consoles and Entertainment Centres

In most households, the television is the focal point of the living room. From TV stands to replica fireplaces to full entertainment centres, the ways you can accommodate your TV can be overwhelming. We recommend choosing a media console that fits in well with the room and offers all the necessary functions at the same time. Remember to choose a unit that fits your TV and consider whether or not to mount your TV on the wall, and if so on a boom arm and at a comfortably high level. If you're looking for a more hidden look, try a closet - where your TV is in a closet with doors that hide it when not in use. For living rooms that are craving space, try a corner unit.

View TV consoles and entertainment centres >

Lamp Tables

Lamp tables are slightly different from a side table as they have a sole purpose. Depending on the lamp they may be positioned behind or adjacent to a chair. Height is a key factor and as such the base may be heavy to prevent movement if knocked into. Typically whilst having a sole purpose a telephone may be placed next to the lamp on this table also.

SideboardsSideboards

Sideboards have recently been making a strong comeback, and interior designers are increasingly realising their renewed appeal. But they have moved away from the box like form and are now bright, unobtrusive and functional living room furniture with plenty of opportunities to decorate them with accessories.

The storage is the first attraction of the modern sideboard. With drawers, shelves and compartments behind doors, they are great storage for everything from toys to paperwork. But it is their size and grandeur that have made them an integral part of the modern home. Standing at about hip height, they are a beautiful addition to any room, and can be used to display photos, flowers, potpourri and large candles.

The decor that you have at home can be easily continued in your sideboard. A bare wood sideboard has a solid, traditional look that blends in beautifully with almost any setting, especially the darker woods, which radiate a real elegance - especially with colourful objects on top. Painted wooden sideboards are also proving popular, and it's no secret why when you get up close and personal. The smooth lines and glossy finishes look amazing in a modern living room, where they can stand out or blend in depending on how you want them to light them. Size is an important factor too so make sure it doesn't overpower the room.

View sideboards >

Chests, Cupboards and bookcases for extra storage

Do you need a hiding place somewhere for all your possessions? There are a wide range of chests and cupboards to make sure you've got plenty of storage space in your home.

From classic ottomans to modern cabinets with drawers, you can keep your home neat and tidy while adding a touch of unique style to your living space. Chests of drawers and cupboards in the living room are available in a variety of woods, materials, colours, sizes and styles to suit your taste and decor.

Alternatively if you want your wide reading collection on display interspersed with ornaments and memorabilia then display shelving units and bookcases built into or onto one display wall will complement your room rather than looking like a large study.

Living Room Accessories

Accessories

Furniture is important, but it's not everything. Choosing the right accessories will take your living room to the next level. Accessories can add an enormous amount of style and functionality without breaking the bank. Here are a few suggestions:

Plants

We believe plants should be in every living room. Apart from refreshing the air by adding oxygen, plants look good and fit almost any piece of furniture. Map out your plant choice to available light from windows in the room before you buy and check what conditions they like. Always adhere to maintenance and guidelines for the species you choose.

Rugs

Depending on the type of floor, you may want to add a soft rug to give your living room a cosy feel. Carpets help make rooms feel warm and inviting, making them a great addition to living rooms!

Curtains

Curtains are known to be the secret ingredient for a perfectly put together room. We recommend using curtains to add character to your living room. Try a bold colour or pattern that doesn't clash with the rest of the decor, but livens up the space.

Candles

Candles are an accessory that can give a living room a warm feel without costing much money. They can be placed on coffee tables, side tables or fireplaces and even without lighting they give class and warmth. Be sure to get a suitable holder so that the furniture is not damaged with the hot wax.

Throws

Throwing blankets are an essential accessory in the living room. There's nothing nicer than getting comfortable, watching a movie and reaching for that favourite blanket. And by using colour schemes, throws help to accentuate your sofa and bring life into your living room.

Pillows

Pillows are comfy, but accent pillows can add additional style. Adding throw cushions to sofas and chairs can be very beneficial for people with back problems and can make any sitting situation comfortable. In addition, accent cushions can give an otherwise dreary sofa or chair a dynamic flair. You would be surprised how much character can be added to a living room by simply adding a few well-chosen cushions.

Art

Photographs and artworks connect a living room. No one likes empty walls, so you should invest part of your budget in beautiful wall art.

Mirrors

Similar to artwork, you don't want a completely blank wall so a decorative mirror can add style and also make your living room appear larger than it is.

Clever Storage Solutions

Clever Storage Solutions

Having a small space does not mean you have to compromise on style and we have a wide range of practical furniture offering a stylish solution to your storage needs. So get the most out of your home, whatever its size, with these space-saving, clever home storage solutions.

Storage seats

The Bergen Hall Bench

The Bergen Hall Bench

The hallway is one of the most under-utilised rooms for storage in our homes, as it’s often only used for through-traffic. But a bench with built-in storage is an ideal place to store away bags, boots, and shoes and a handy place to sit down to put shoes on!

Beds with storage

The Avon Oak King Size Bed

For bedrooms that are short on space or to avoid adding more bulky furniture into a bedroom, a bed frame with handy drawers tucked neatly underneath could be the perfect solution. Use them to store away shoes, bedding or seasonal clothing and maximise the space in your bedroom.

Wine Storage

The Borg Wine Cabinet

The Borg Wine Cabinet

Wine bottles should be stored on their side and not standing up because the cork should be kept moist by the wine. If the cork dries out, air can seep into the bottle which can lose the wine its flavour and richness. These beautiful units offer the perfect place to store away your favourite bottles and keep them within easy reach!

Nested Tables

Bristol Oak Nest of Tables

Bristol Oak Nest of Tables

Our range of nested tables are perfect for when your guests arrive, serving as mini tables for drinks and nibbles. Available in different shapes, styles and sizes, the handy smaller tables can be stored neatly away underneath the big table until they are next needed, keeping floor space clear.

Extending Tables

Bergen 1.8m Extending Table

Whether your children have flown the nest or you simply love to entertain, an extendable dining table is a great choice to accommodate extra guests when they come to your home. When those extra seats aren’t needed, these tables can be folded down to a more manageable size to create a spacious feeling in your dining area.

Storage footstools

G Plan Elliot Storage Footstool

We all need to put our feet up at the end of the day, but not in a messy room! Storage footstools are a great place to store away all the toys, DVDs and  blankets that can accrue in our living rooms. And, as well as providing useful storage space, these footstools can double up as an extra seat.

Dining tables for the perfect Christmas dinner

Dining tables for the perfect Christmas dinner

Christmas is a time to spend with friends and family and, if you’re thinking about treating yourself to a new dining table set, you’ll want something stylish and practical that can be enjoyed for years to come. The big day will be here sooner than you think so we’re sharing our top tips and advice to help you choose the perfect dining table for Christmas… and all year round.

Consider an extending dining table

Accommodate your extra guests with an extendable dining table. They come in a range of sizes, shapes and styles, from the contemporary, rectangular Bristol Oak Extending Dining Table to the country, circular Fleur grey painted round dining table. Some extend by just one leaf, while others extend to seat the whole extended family!

Best of all, when those extra seats aren’t needed, these tables can be folded down to a more manageable size and create a more spacious feeling in your dining area.

Dine in fine style

From elaborate turned legs to industrial reclaimed table tops, there are plenty of dining table styles to choose from. Match with sideboards and display cabinets – so you can carry the style across your whole dining area for a coordinated look.

Ercol Teramo

ercol Teramo

With its with gentle curves and tapered legs, the Ercol Teramo is a contemporary pale oak dining range inspired by the traditional Shaker style. Choose between two different styles of dining chair, for a casual or more formal look, and coordinate with a wider range of occasional pieces.

Fowey Painted

Fowey Painted Dining Range

Combining contemporary and classic design, the stone grey paint and limed oak surfaces of the Fowey Painted range looks relaxed by day yet effortlessly elegant for entertaining, especially when dressed up for Christmas with holly and ivy.

Soho Dining

Soho Dining Range

The combination of chunky iron legs and a mid-tone solid oak top certainly gives this Soho Dining range a stylish industrial feel. Crafted from solid European oak, this contemporary range has a selection of tables and sideboards, as well as coffee tables and a television unit available.

Ercol Windsor

Ercol Windsor

Made using traditional craft techniques and modern machining, the Ercol Windsor range features the beauty of displayed dovetail joints and iconic oval wooden handles. Choose an Ercol Windsor dining table and chair set to dine in real style this Christmas.

Complete your dining room with a coordinating sideboard, dresser or console table or add some contrast with contemporary touches, such as our elegant Ribbon End Table. The addition of a mirror can transform your dining space by increasing the amount of natural light cast across the room, as well as giving the impression of a larger space.

 

Take a seat

One of the challenges at Christmas can be finding that extra seating for your extra guests. We’ve got a wide range of seating available to make sure you’re guests are comfortable as they tuck into their turkey, from beautifully upholstered seating in a range of colours to classic wooden dining chairs and benches. Keep extra seating handy in your hall, study, spare room or bedrooms while they’re not in use, ready to bring out for those special occasions.

 

How to measure up

To help you visualise your table, place a sheet on the ground or place carboard boxes where the dining table will go. This can really help you to get a feel for the space you’re working with, and allow you to test spatial boundaries. Check out our full guide to measuring up. 

Shape

When choosing the shape of your dining table, consider the amount of people you want to seat as well as the shape of the room. The bigger the table, the more your guests will be restricted to conversations with the person next to them. With a rectangular table, however, there is the opportunity to chat to the people beside you and across from you. In smaller spaces, such as cottages or flats, a round table may be a better option. Not only does it make moving around easier, but it will create breathing space, helping the room to feel less crowded.

Size

Besides how many people you want to seat, you also need to consider allowing enough space for people to pass comfortably around the table. To ensure you have adequate room around a dining table, we recommend that you leave a minimum of 35 inches (89cm) for clearance space from any nearby object, be it furniture, walls, doors or windows. This space should allow your guests to get up during a meal should they need to. However, for a more comfortable space around your dining table and a more elegantly proportioned room, we’d suggest allowing 45 inches (114cm).

 

 

Plan ahead for the perfect Christmas

Many precious memories are created around the Christmas dinner table, and the big day will be here sooner than you think! We have a wide range of beautiful dining tables and chairs in a range of styles to suit your home. So remember to order in plenty of time for Christmas!

What size dining table? A guide to measuring up

What size dining table? A guide to measuring up

There is so much to consider when deciding what dining table to purchase. Your dining space plays host to intimate dinners, large gatherings, Sunday lunches with family and friends and inevitably financial meetings, school homework sessions and kids painting sessions on wet and windy winter days. 

If kitchens are the heart of the house, the dining space is definitely the head. There is a quick way to get started in two steps

  1. Measure the length and width of your dining room or dining space 

  2. Subtract 185cms from both the length and width

This gets a judgement on the magic number of 92cm clearance between table, other furniture and walls - enough for yourself and guests to move chairs away easily. 

So far so easy, but as highlighted there is much more to consider, for example your original space. Your dining space will likely have multi purposes, so versatility will always be a good starting point and an expandable table will be able to accommodate more. If you have a small or square space then a pedestal table might be a good choice and easier for close seating, conversations and Italian style dining. Alternatively oval tables might create that extra bit of room for manoeuvre. If you are in a tight spot, you could consider bench seating that can slide under the table when not in use and might suit families with younger children. Then tables could be slid into a corner when not in use.  

Style of eating, room and requirements all play a factor, but what is under the table and what surrounds plays an equal role, the space might be right, but the number of chairs also needs to be considered. Do you have a large family and honestly how much do you entertain? More chairs might create the right aesthetic, but what about sitting with a chair leg in the way? Does the sideboard the length of the table need to be in its current position just for a hot plate only used at Christmas?

Close seating might be fine for you, but a rule of thumb over the 92cm clearance is 61cm of space per the average adult. Therefore, you might want to consider the following:

  • To sit 4 people - a 122cm long table or 102-122cm diameter round table would be ideal

  • To sit 6 people - a 152-183cm long table or 152cm round table and might accommodate 8 in the round

  • To sit 10 or more - 234-305cm table would be best, consider table legs with your chosen style.
