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.

Best Selling Designs: Riverton Collection by Klaussner Furniture

Bold strength is conveyed in the industrial design of the Riverton Collection by Klaussner Furniture; black metal tubes connect massive pieces of wood and visible bolts provide joinery. Design is gutsy and inventive. The juxtaposition of wood and metal is unrefined and the heavily distressed clove finish used on the wood presents a rough-hewn appearance. A sleek and sophisticated group with a pinch of contemporary attitude, the Riverton Collection available at FurnitureCart cuts a striking figure.

FEATURES
Plank Bed – Metal tubes pierce the wide, horizontal wood planks that form the headboard and footboard of this bed and provide a little open space between planks. Visible bolts are at the top of the headboard and footboard and on the sides of the bed. Four-sided, tapered feet are at its base.

Sliding Door Chest – An inventive sliding door moves from left to right to alternately reveal drawers and shelves for storage.

Riverton Side Chairs – Curved horizontal planks shaped like the side of a barrel form the back of a low-back chair set upon tapered legs. A chocolate leather upholstered seat is edged with a nailhead trim.

Dining Table – Four wide planks are flanked at both ends with a wide plank edge. Four-sided tapered legs, descend from the table apron to the floor.

Frame within a Frame Mirror – Framing the mirror glass and then suspending that framed within another frame adds an architectural element and a spacious quality to this mirror. The mirror is fixed at the 4 axis points so it doesn’t move.

How To Arrange the Pivot Point – Truffle Sectional by Ashley Furniture

Majority of the families spend their time in the living rooms, however not all of them know how to make their living room functional and attractive. The type of furniture that adds functionality is a Living Room Sectional.
There are three basic rules we would like to point out for decorating a living room:

The first basic rule would be to define a focal point, the main thing you want to see, such as fireplace, TV or window and then place your sectional accordingly. But keep in mind, not only do you want to arrange your sectional such that it draws attention to the focal point, but you also want to create comfortable area for seating and talking.

The second point is to keep enough space between the furniture pieces so that people can get up and move around comfortably within the space.
As an illustration, consider the Pivot Point – Truffle Sectional by Ashley Furniture. The collection will fit flawlessly into any living environment. In addition to its modular functionality, it has an ample function of the reading lights and console storage along with the drop-down table.

10800-Pivot-Point-Truffle-Sectional

Below are all the pieces the Pivot Point – Truffle Sectional consist of:

Pivot-Point-Truffle-Collection

There are at least eight options it can be arranged, using the above pieces:

Depending on how much space there is in your living room choose one of the options above that would fit best.

Finally, after your sectional is arranged, don’t forget about area rugs and accessories, such as lamps or wall art. They can help you define the space, providing additional warmth and comfort, as well as adding beauty and style to your room. Also, consider placing an accent table next to your sectional for drinks, coffee or snacks.

Don’t hesitate to call FurnitureCart at (302) 265-3830 to place an order or to discuss any other questions you have.
