Ultimate Guide to Bed Styles

Your serene harbor, place for a retreat from the buzzy world, relaxation and calmness point and the center of your own kingdom. Yes, today we are talking about bedroom! Before making any arrangements and fuss when creating or rearranging your bedroom, you have to know the bed styles. And, first of all, you need to understand your bedroom space, what functions you are expecting to be covered by the bed you want (say, if you want it to be a spacious spot for relaxation and feel like royalty, or you want it to have extra drawers to help you store the stuff) and distinctive features you’d like to see in your bed design.

So, here we go with the brief guide to bed styles to know!

Storage is a bed that has built in storage underneath the mattress area. You can avoid too much furniture in a room by having it in your bedroom and have a hidden storage right under your bed.

Platform Bed sits lower to the ground and has a headboard but no footboard, might have a solid base or the delicate legs. The slats are used for support instead of a box spring, which adds unwanted height for this style.

Sleigh Bed has distinctive arched shape of the headboard, footboard, or both. The curves of an old-fashioned sleigh gave the name to this bed style. The look is stunning, but you have to remember that this kind of bed shape claims additional floor space.

Poster Beds are defined by four decorative posts, rising up from each corner of the bed. The height of the posts ranges due to the style and design inception from very low posts clearing the mattress to ceiling height.

Panel Beds are with a tall decorated panel headboard, and sometimes footboard. They require a box spring to support the mattress. The crossbars made of wood or metal are spaced between the rails or bed frame to provide structural support, but not enough for mattress alone.

Upholstered Bed means that the headboard is covered with fabric or other soft material, making the bed comfortable. Some designs include all of the structural parts of bed upholstered, the others have only few sections of headboard upholstered.

Canopy Beds feature the rising posts but with crossbeams that connect them at the very top. As it looks grand, these kind of beds are best in rooms with tall ceilings. Traditional style canopies have detailed scrollwork and curves, contemporary ones employ simple geometric design.

modern-mahogany-dining-universal-furnitureFinishes:
Modern by Universal is primarily a finish and hardware story. Textural sandblasted and wire-brushed finishes were developed and refined using complex layering techniques, and variations of color and sheen to achieve a dry, casual optic. There are several distinct colors in the finishes, though all are neutrals, which work together naturally, even within the same room. Each one is rich in character and texture, letting the material speak for itself.
Wood finishes are complemented by metal and leather accent finishes.
Sandblasted – Sandblasted finishes expose the open grain of the wood, more so than the wire brushed finishes in the collection.

Wire brushed – In an effect similar to sandblasted, but with more subtlety, the wood is abraded by hand to achieve an aged look.

  • Portobello – a rich brown, often paired with shagreen panels and metal trim

Smooth wood:

  • Mahogany – Quartered mahogany with a smooth, polished sheen

Leather:

  • Faux shagreen

Metal:

  • Antiqued bronze
  • Brushed brass

Hardware:
Antiqued bronze drawer pulls, cabinet handles and dining able accents feature ribbed detail are paired with sandblasted and wire-brushed woods. Sleek brushed brash hardware gives a mid-century metropolitan feel to mahogany finished furnishings.
