DESIGN / BEDROOMS / CHOOSE BEDS FOR COMFORT
You can choose from a wide variety of beds depending on the space and size of the room
The most important thing that completes your bedroom is the bed. it’s the first thing that your think of or shop for while deciding the design of the bedroom.
as there are several kinds of beds available in furniture stores, each with its own benefits, the choice is a hard one. here are some stylish and sophisticated options, to make your task easier.
If you can’t find a palatial house in the city, no problem, you can at least feel like a princess in your bedroom! a wooden bed with beautifully carved headboard and legs is the best way to ideentify a maharaja bed. to give it an authentic indian look, dark-wood polish would work best. this kind of bed would be apt for a spacious bedroom as they are quite large and usually dominate the room. to complete the overall look, you can also drape the bed with rich, silken bedsheets. don’t use this bed for the children’s room as it would look too formal.
If you prefer a casual look for your bedroom, here’s a perfect option: go bohemain with a platform bed. these are trendy beds that are spectacular if matched with pinewood or a deep dark polished wood. a neutral coloured bedspread with shiny brocade or embroidered pillows and cushions would complement this perfectly.
The contrast is totally funky. throw a rug on the floor to complete the look. For a more sophisticated appearance, try raw-silk fabrics in subtle colours like beige, creamy white and pastel shades.
Perfect for your children, especially if they share a bedroom, the bunk bed is often a favourite. apart from saving space, the kids will love taking turns to sleep on the upper bunk. ensure that the upper bunk has a railing high enough so that your child doesn’t roll off. themed bunk beds are also available in designs resembling trains, sports cars and castles too! if you don’t want to change the bed too soon as your children would outgrow the kiddie themes, stick to a simple design which will last longer.
Wrought-iron beds look attractive and also come in a variety of designs. but the more elaborate the curves and corners, the more dust is likely to collect on them.
Make sure to clean them regularly, if your child is asthmatic or allergic to dust. these beds are light and easy to move around in the room. jumping on the bed is strictly not allowed as this might result in the base getting bent, and backaches. consider the base of the bed being made of wood so that it is stronger and lasts for a much longer time.
This could be quite an investment on the bed, but don’t expect too much if you plan on selling it later. the resale value of wrought-iron furniture is really low.
Sofa-cum-bed are great space savers. you can use it as a sofa all day and in the night you can turn it into a bed for the kids or guests in the house. it sure beats sleeping on the floor.
Standard Wood Bed
This is the common and regular wooden bed that comes with a plain headboard. this is perfect if you want to change the feel of the room at short notice.
You can cover them with any fabrics and do up the room around them.
These beds are apt for anyone and can fit into the look of every room. extra storage space can be created to keep all the items you don’t use daily. if you don’t want to use a sofa-cum-bed, try a divan in your hall or bedroom. if you place it by the window, it makes a great place to read. and you can sleep on them too. this could also serve as another interesting option for unexpected guests staying overnight. make the divan look inviting by throwing on a lot of plush pillows and bolsters.
Four-poster beds redefine the luxury of the room, if it has a frame on top; one can drape beautiful lace sheers on it as well.
If you feel that it would become too fancy, then you can also throw on a baby net, which comes in attractive pastels to soften the look of the room. it has another advantage; it serves as a great way to keep the mosquitoes out too. add soft yellow light to complete the look of absolute luxury.
Make the most out of your bed shopping by taking into account the size of the room and select accordingly.
