Choosing Faux Leather Beds

What do wood, metal, and leather have in common?

No, not all of these are part of the five elements of Chinese philosophy (at least, leather isn’t). These three are the common materials used to make single beds.

This article is dedicated to identifying the pros and cons of each so you can determine which single bedsteads will be right for you and your home.

Traditional wooden bed frames are the most common of all single beds available in the market.

These can match just about any bedroom furniture, even those that are not wooden, so you do not have to worry about changing the decor of your room just to match your bed. However, if you still want to make your furnishings as coordinated as possible, there are various wardrobes, cabinets, and drawers that can match your bed, which are not even necessarily made by the same manufacturer.

They are also very sturdy and stable, and they can last for a long period of time. You do not have to worry about wear and tear when it comes to wooden single beds.

There are also bunk wooden beds that you can buy for your children’s bedroom to conserve more space. They are also pretty cheap, given that the materials to construct these are pretty easy to find.

The downside with wooden single beds is that they are heavy and rarely come equipped with wheels, so they are pretty hard to move around in case you want to redecorate your place.

Metal single beds are minimalist, both in look and in price. They are generally the cheapest kind of single beds available.

Most have a simple appearance, although there are some that have ornate designs. Buyers can purchase these either as a full bed already or as parts that they can assemble at home.

Unlike wooden single beds, they can be moved easily, since they are relatively light and usually come with wheels. The downside is that some of the inferior-made metal single beds can break down fairly easily. Furthermore, they have a tendency to creak when someone is lying down on these, so it might make sleeping a bit difficult for those who are sensitive to noise.

Leather single beds, while the least common of the three, is rapidly gaining in terms of popularity, mainly because they add a luxurious and classy feel to the bedroom.

Like wooden single beds, they are very sturdy and not easily susceptible to wear and tear. However, once a part of it gets ripped, it will be more difficult to mend it compared to other single beds.

Furthermore, leather single beds are the most expensive of the three. In fact, a lot of manufacturers that claim to make these actually only use genuine leather on some sections of the bed, not the whole of it, to lower its cost, because a fully-covered bed would be very expensive. However, some manufacturers have gotten around this difficulty by producing faux leather single beds, which are more reasonably-priced than their genuine leather counterpart.

Balance between your budget and your need to determine what single beds to get.
