For the forward looking, there's no shortage of contemporary beds on the market. Whilst many people choose a traditional bed design, there is still a huge market for contemporary beds. Changing lifestyles and aspirations combined with affordable designs and plenty of advice on how to get the designer lifestyle you aspire to means that the designers and manufacturers of beds are turning out new designs on a regular basis. Materials In the main, contemporary beds use the same materials as traditional beds. Wood and metal are still the most popular construction materials, although contemporary beds are increasingly using leather and other modern materials to create a new look. From minimalist slatted beds to beds with unusual shapes, there's no shortage of choice if a contemporary bed is what you're looking for. The price tag Just because a bed has a contemporary design, it doesn't mean that it comes with a hefty price tag. If you're shopping for beds on a limited budget, you can still find something that looks great and fits in with your design ideas for just a couple of hundred pounds. The beds market is so competitive that you can easily find a sale or online bargain that meets your needs exactly. On the other hand, if you really want to spend a lot of money on a bed, you can easily spend up to ?5,000 on a luxurious leather bedstead or a beautiful contemporary wooden base. Alternatives Beds still come in standard sizes for single beds, double beds, king size beds and even superking beds, and with range of mattresses, but if you're after a true taste of contemporary, why not try a waterbed? With full support and heating functions, many people who've tried a waterbed won't go back to a standard mattress. On the other hand, you could look at an adjustable bed, where you can raise or lower the mattress in a number of positions to help you achieve the most comfortable sleeping and sitting positions. Whatever you're looking for, there is a contemporary design or style to suit you. We can provide you with great-looking contemporary beds at competitive prices.
