Different Types of Bed

Choosing the right bed is crucial for a good night's sleep. It's not just about finding a size that fits your room or a design that suits your personal style; it's about creating a sanctuary where you can unwind and rejuvenate. Lets talk about the essentials of selecting the perfect bed, including understanding sizes, exploring types, and making an informed decision that aligns with your lifestyle and budget.

Understanding sizing

Sizes Available

Sizes vary widely, catering to different needs and room dimensions. From compact singles to luxury super king size beds, size can significantly impact your sleep quality and room aesthetics. Archers Sleepcentre has beds frames available starting at standard UK single and going up to a super king size. We also have a range of divan bases, which are available in a wide selection of sizes including extra long and European (IKEA) sizes .

How to Choose the Perfect Size for You

Selecting the right bed size involves considering room dimensions, personal space requirements, and future-proofing your sleep space. We always recommend choosing the largest size of bed that can comfortably fit in your bedroom. Whether you're an expansive sleeper or need a snug fit for a small room, there's a bed size perfectly tailored to your needs. 

Types of bed frame

At Archers Sleepcentre we sell a range of bed types and sizes, and have a range of double beds, the UKs most common size.

Types of material

At Archers Sleepcentre we have frames available in a wide range of materials and finishes. Here we will go through a range of bed options to help you find the perfect style for you.

Wooden - Wooden bed frames have a classic look and are renowned for their durability. They are available in a wide range of finishes such as warm oak, classic light pine and rich walnut.

Metal - Metal beds typically have a sleek design and modern finish. Often more lightweight and easier to transport than other types of frame. They are a great option for contemporary bedrooms.

Fabric - Upholstered fabric options come in a wide range of fabric and colour choices. Choose from sleek faux leather, plush velvet or contemporary boucle fabric styles.

Storage options

If you have a smaller bedroom, or are looking for your bedframe to come with storage options, we have a range of modern frames with drawers or ottoman storage

Storage drawers - We have a range of storage beds that come with drawers built into the frame allowing you to organise and store items within the frame itself.

Ottoman storage - Ottoman storage lifts the mattress and converts the whole of the base into a storage space. Ottoman beds are ideal for smaller rooms where space is at a premium and are an excellent choice for guest rooms.

Other options

Divan beds - A practical choice for most bedrooms, divan bases are available in a wide range of colours and fabrics. Most have the option of adding in extra storage or reinforcing the base. Matching headboards are often available in a range of styles so you can create something that suits your home.

Sofa beds - Ideal for unexpected guests or as a space-saving furniture piece, sofa beds are a smart choice for modern living. They are perfect for smaller living areas as they combine the comfort of a sofa with the functionality of a bed. With a variety of styles and designs available, they can seamlessly integrate into any room, providing both a stylish seating area and a comfortable sleeping space when needed.

Bunk beds - Bunks are a smart choice for families trying to save space in smaller bedrooms. The vertical design frees up floor space, allowing extra room for play. The bunks are designed with safety in mind and have sturdy ladders and guard rails.

Guest beds - Ideal for children's bedrooms, these are a practical way to add an extra sleeping area without taking up additional space. The sleek design allows you to add two full size single beds to a room that would normally only accommodate one. Available in range of different finishes, including metal, wood and divan options.
