Beds – wood, metal or leather?

Our beds look and feel different depending on which type we choose.

Today’s beds are available in a wide range of styles and constructed from a wide range of materials. Still the most popular though, are wood, wrought iron and leather – which has grown in popularity with its use in sleek, sophisticated modern apartments and houses.

Which beds to choose?

The type of construction material you choose may depend on your personal taste or it may be whatever fits in with the design and d?cor scheme that you have planned. You should also remember never to forsake comfort for style when it comes to beds – we spend almost one third of our lives in our beds, so you must be sure that the bed you’re choosing gives you the comfort and support you need as well as the looks you want.

? Wood – wood is an enduring material for all furniture, but has a particular appeal when it comes to beds. With so many types of wood to choose from, designers and craftsmen have produced a wide range of styles to suit any lifestyle. The warmth of wood creates a welcoming atmosphere in your bedroom and its adaptability and flexibility means that it both lasts a long time and can be fashioned into a wide range of designs – from truly traditional to ultra-modern.

? Metal – wrought iron, painted or unpainted, is a popular choice for bedsteads. From plain, yet elegant columns and bars to imaginative knot designs and cleverly-turned designs, you can get a wrought iron bedstead that will give you the look you need. A well-made metal bed will last for years and you may be able to replace the slatted mattress supports so that you can keep your bed for as long as possible.

? Leather – a relatively recent entrant to the beds market in its recent form, leather and faux-leather beds are increasingly popular. Available in a variety of colours and finishes, they give both the tactile and visual appeal of wood and metal. Mainly used in contemporary designs, leather beds make great focal points and are affordable as well as desirable.
