How to shop for a modern bed
Measure your space - Before you start browsing for modern beds, measure your bedroom. Consider the dimensions of the bed frame, including the length, width, and height. Ensure that the bed you choose fits comfortably within the available space, leaving enough room for other furniture and easy movement around the bed.
Select the right size - Modern beds come in various sizes, including twin, full, queen, and king. Choose a size that suits your needs and the size of your bedroom. Keep in mind that larger beds provide more sleeping space but may require a larger room.
Choose a style - Modern beds encompass a wide range of styles, from minimalist and contemporary to mid-century and industrial. Consider your bedroom's existing decor and personal preferences when selecting a style that complements your space. Sleek lines, simple forms, and a focus on functionality are characteristic of modern design.
Materials and construction - Pay attention to the materials used in the bed's construction. Common options include wood, metal, upholstered frames, and a combination of materials. Solid wood frames and high-quality upholstery can add durability and comfort to your modern bed.
Headboard design - The headboard is a prominent feature of your bed. Modern beds may have various headboard designs, including padded, upholstered, or wooden styles. Choose a headboard that complements the overall design of your bedroom.
Colour and finish - Modern beds come in a wide array of colours and finishes. Metal beds are available in many different powder coated finishes such as matte black and shades of grey, but also in lighter tones like cream or soft white. With a wide variety of wood species and grains, wood beds have an endless array of choice for colour and style from light natural tones or mid-century style walnut to dark charcoal stains. Upholstered beds also provide a wide range of choice, especially if you are looking for something bold and colourful. Select a color and finish that harmonizes with your bedroom's colour scheme.
How to style a modern bed
To achieve a modern and minimalist bedroom, focus on several key elements. Start with bedding that has a minimalist design, such as crisp white linens or neutral-coloured solid sheets. Layering is essential for depth, so consider adding a lightweight throw blanket or textured duvet cover to your bed.
When it comes to pillows, opt for a few large, square ones in solid colours or simple patterns and use pillow shams for a polished look, avoiding excess. Illuminate the space with contemporary lighting fixtures like pendant lights or sleek bedside lamps, and consider installing dimmer switches for mood lighting. Finally, maintain a clutter-free environment by stowing personal items out of sight in drawers or closets to create a clean and open atmosphere.
