What To Consider When Buying Sleigh Beds

Typically, people consider sleigh beds bulky because they will only fit a large room. However, the modern sleigh beds are a masterpiece and become the showcased furniture of your house. Instead of being bulky, the sleigh beds offer plenty of storage space underneath them. Today, more and more people are buying platform sleigh beds. With the increased demand, manufacturers have launched a wide variety of sleigh bed designs and colors. 

The first factor you need to consider is the size of both your room and the platform sleigh bed. It would help if you made sure that there is enough space available in your room to keep the sleigh bed and add other furniture pieces too. Also, be mindful of the height of the sleigh bed's headboard and room's ceiling. 

Next, you need to decide what size of sleigh bed you want. Usually, all the platform sleigh beds have a heavy and robust structure, making them very stable and sturdy. So, you only need to decide the size depending on who will use the bed. 

The third thing you need to consider is the material of the modern sleigh bed. Usually, most sleigh beds are made of sturdy wood, but some metal sleigh beds can give you a rustic and royal look. Finally, before buying the bed, you need to decide the color of the bed, the color of the fabric used on the headboards and footboards. You can select colors that would last or adapt to any bedroom color or bedding, such as dark grey or black. 

Additionally, you need to factor in your budget to buy the bed. As the modern sleigh beds are made of high-quality products, the price tends to be higher than the typical furniture piece. If the complexity of the design increases, the cost of the sleigh bed will increase as well. 

Upholstered Sleigh Bed: Take your classic sleigh bed to the next level with an upholstered design. Upholstered sleigh beds are the most popular among homeowners. These designs showcase buttons on the headboards and piping on the feet. 

Storage Sleigh Bed: If you don't have many storage options in your bedroom, don't refrain from buying a sleigh bed. There are many options available in modern sleigh beds that have storage cabinets and drawers.

A sleigh bed with storage provides ample space under the frames. So, the sleigh beds can be beautiful and functional. 

Sleigh Bed with a Low Foot End: There are many unique styles of sleigh beds, and one such design has scrolled headboard but no footboard. These modern sleigh beds are perfect for the minimalistic look of your bedroom. 

Points to Remember: 

  1. Because of the wider headboard and footboard, the sleigh beds work the best in the master bedroom space. 

  2. When it comes to the bedding for a sleigh bed, always tuck in the sheets. You can also consider buying fitted sheets to accentuate the curvy design of modern sleigh beds. 

  3. If your platform sleigh beds don't have any storage space underneath, you can raise the bed height by adding bed risers. 

  4. Depending on the size of your bedroom, you can choose to remove the bed's footboard. However, even without the footboard, the bed will still look gorgeous.
