The amount of time that we spend decorating the walls of the bedroom, picking out styles, changing accents periodically and giving it a new look seems disproportionately large compared to the time spend on choosing a bed. Most of us tend to pick the simple and ‘usual’ bed design that is modern and convenient and the choice is more about size than style. But you can venture beyond the mundane bed frame this season to find some really impressive designs that are both timeless and trendy. A touch different from the usual crowd and offering something for everyone, this is a look at the 5 most popular bed frames this year –
Bed frames do come in a wide variety of forms. The most popular ones offer something different both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. While last year saw the bed frame with tufted headboard top the trends chart, this year things are a bit different. From the minimal and contemporary platform bed to the merrier sleigh bed and the ornate four-poster design, this is a collection of bed frames that will have you planning to give your own bedroom a much-needed makeover. Step in and discover the 25 best ideas –
Holiday Cheer with Sleigh Beds!
The sleigh bed is a classic design that has been around forever. It fits in perfectly with traditional, rustic and farmhouse style bedrooms and looks good even in the modern bedroom when used right. Contemporary sleigh beds with tufted frames are a fun choice as they combine the flowing curves of this bed with ample comfort, providing the best of both worlds. In the minimal bedroom with clean, straight lines, this beautiful bed also offers geometric contrast. A great design that works well beyond the Holiday Season for sure!
Classic Four-Poster Beds
Another traditional design that has found a way to adapt its way into the modern home, the four-poster bed includes wide range of custom designs that change with the chosen design. You can use bed curtains and fabric to deck out the four-poster bed and give it a more luxurious and ‘regal’ appeal while the minimal four-poster bed does away with all these frills. Craved posts in wood usher in styles such as Indian and Oriental with ease while these beds are also great for the tropical style bedroom with exotic aura.
Wrought Iron Bed Frame in Modern Homes
This one is much more ‘quaint’ in terms of both its origin and usage over the last few decades, but the modest wrought iron bed frame is back with a bang this year. With homeowners embracing styles such as rustic, farmhouse, industrial and Victorian once again, this bed does feel apt. It is often light in weight and its many modern versions usher in color and pattern without going overboard. Sometimes, the bed feels like a work of art in the contemporary bedroom clad in neutral colors!
Perfect Platform Bed
Minimal and understated, the platform bed is another showstopper that can fit into bedroom of any style. In the small bedrooms, the platform be is a boon that fits in pretty much anywhere and even in rooms with low ceiling, it seems just fine. If you are embracing a shabby chic, Scandinavian or Japanese style in the bedroom, this is indeed the go-to choice. Couple this woodsy find with matching nightstands and other decor pieces, and you have a fab and functional bedroom.
Saving-Space with Trundle Beds
Another bed that not only saves space visually, but provides you with additional sleeping space is the smart trundle bed. Just slide out the lower unit once you have guests over and things are pretty much set! Trundle beds are a smart option in the guest room, home office that doubles as guest space or even in the kids’ room with bunk beds.
