30 Stylish Floating Bed Design Ideas for the Contemporary Home

Floating bed ideas have a unique and exciting aura that surrounds them. Since most modern homes and interiors are designed around the principle of ‘clean and well-defined lines,’ they make for an appealing choice.

Aesthetically pleasing, space-conscious and offering even the smaller rooms an airy and open look, floating bed models tend to bring in an unparalleled sense of sophistication and style. While these beautiful hanging bed designs offer a more relaxed and holiday-like experience, floating beds bring in a more futuristic look.

Offering a Panoramic View

Contemporary residences and villas are all about offering a perfect view of the world outside. Most modern home owners and architects are spending a whole lot of effort and dough on getting the best possible view. Floating beds bring the additional advantage of being able to give those within a 360-degree view as they can be pretty much placed anywhere in the room. While traditional bed designs are often relegated to one of the walls or corner, you can position your exquisite floating bed right in the middle of your stunning bedroom surrounded by floor-to-ceiling glass windows.
