Did you know that there are hundreds of bed styles out there? From twin-size divans to bendy adjustable beds to King-size sleigh beds with latex mattresses, there is truly something for everyone.

Check out some of these unique bed styles and consider supplementing with a custom mattress.

Canopy Beds

Canopy Beds

Canopy beds look a bit like four-poster beds, except that the posts are connected to make it easy to hang a canopy. This bed style gives you choices: you can cover your sleeping area with drapes to create a cozy, private space, or you can leave it open and let in the light.

There are two main variations of canopy beds: contemporary and traditional. A traditional canopy bed is defined by heavy wood with plenty of ornamentation. A contemporary canopy, on the other hand, is very minimalist and thin with little decoration.


divans for better sleep

A divan is the bed style of choice for many people who have limited space. With built-in drawers, you have more storage space than you would with most other bed types.

A soft headboard allows divan owners to sit in bed conveniently. If you’re the sort of person who enjoys working from their bed, a divan might be the style for you.

Platform Beds

Platform Beds

Platform beds are just what they sound like: a mattress on a simple, sturdy platform.

These beds are streamlined and unfussy, perfect for a minimalist who likes to stay focused on what’s important. They can also withstand plenty of pressure.

Sleigh Beds

Sleigh beds are distinctive and beloved by many for one reason: they look like sleighs. With a beautifully curved headboard and footboard, this bed style has a special place in many romantics’ hearts.

These beds could complement a range of different bedroom styles, from traditional to contemporary.

Upholstered Beds

Upholstered Beds

Upholstered beds were designed to eliminate the potential discomfort accidentally bumping your head into a wall or your legs into hard metal sides. Soft headboards and sides make sitting in bed very comfortable.

You will never feel uncomfortable in an upholstered bed — as long as you have a high-quality custom mattress, that is.

Adjustable Beds

Adjustable beds can be tilted and bent in a range of different positions. If you need the top of the mattress to be higher than the bottom, you can do that. If you want the bed to be bent almost like a fully reclined sofa chair, you can do that, too.

Adjustable beds are particularly good for people who have certain health conditions. These beds can deliver an unmatched level of support and comfort, especially when used together with the right mattress.

Pencil Poster Beds

Pencil posters are a variation of poster beds that date back to 18th century New England. Like most poster beds, they have four posts, but these posts are notably thin.

If you are looking for a unique bedroom aesthetic, a pencil poster may worth considering.

Modern Beds

Modern Beds

Modern beds are sleek and minimalist. They lack excessive ornamentation and instead emphasize the beauty of a simple, functional design.

If you prefer simplicity and don’t need to hide a lot of stuff under your bed, a modern bed is probably the perfect style for you.

Bunk Beds

Bunk beds are popular in homes where bedrooms are shared by children or roommates. With one bed on top of the other, this style can help you save space and provide room for other furniture.

Some bunk beds come with an additional trundle that slides out from the lower bunk. With this innovation, a single bedframe can sleep three people.

Hanging Beds

Hanging beds are fun and unique with just a hint of danger. If you’ve ever wanted to float or feel the wind rock you to sleep, you may want to try out this bed style.

Hanging beds are generally not recommended for long-term usage. However, they can easily go in a spare room or even outdoors to delight the occasional guest. All you need to do is suspend the bed from the ceiling, and you can rock away.

The Perfect Bed For You

The ideal sleep situation is about far more than just the aesthetic of the bedframe. If you are looking to get better sleep, a custom mattress will go a long way toward helping you achieve your sleep goals.

Depending on your sleep needs, you may prefer a mattress with extra length, hypoallergenic materials, or additional support for your back. Different mattresses are better suited to different sleeping positions. Many couples who prefer different levels of firmness find that a custom mattress is a perfect solution.
