Single, 3ft Upholstered Beds
With dimensions of 3ft x 6ft 3in, a single upholstered bed is often the perfect choice for a guest or child’s bedroom. Singles are available at a range of price points and come in a variety of coloured fabrics to suit the ambience of your room.
Headboards at this size are often studded, and singles are also available with curved designs and buttoned headends. The sprung slatted base is a common feature of the single, while some singles have wooden feet, adding a charming, naturalistic feel. For those looking to combine their single bed with more storage, many singles are available with an ottoman system, utilising either side lift or gas lift mechanisms. At the higher end of the price range, single upholstered beds boast exquisite detailing such as crystal buttoning and include extras like optional mattresses.
Small Double, 4ft Upholstered Beds
The small double upholstered bed, at 4ft x 6ft 3in, allows more space in a smaller bedroom. Again there is a wide variety of fabric and colour choice in the small double range.
Whether you want a more calming hue or a louder centrepiece, the fabric beds at this size have an option for you. Choose between greys, blues and pinks or more daring colours like fudge, cream or charcoal. Most small doubles have sprung slatted bases and curved, linear or plane headboards.
At the high-end you can often choose between leg colours, giving you more chance to compliment carpets, walls and other bedroom furniture.
Double 4ft, 6in Upholstered Beds
The double upholstered bed range is by far the largest on the market. There is something for everyone in terms of fabric and colour choice. Crushed pewter velvet doubles are particularly popular.
Additional features are also more common in this range, with many doubles offering off the floor storage and base opening. Those wanting extra stability can opt for chrome footing, while many doubles have solid top bases. Platform ventilated bases are also available, while the most luxurious doubles have hydraulic assist lift for high-end comfort.
Unique design features like scroll top heads and feet, high head ends and panelled designs add personality to the range, and for those who like to watch television in bed, many doubles also include a media shelf or TV stand in their foot ends.
Kingsize 5ft Upholstered Beds
At 5ft x 6ft 6in the kingsize is an upgrade in both size and comfort. Kingsize upholstered beds have all the features mentioned above and a little more, be it end drawers, a winged headboard, or chic Chesterfield styling. Whatever your design preferences you can find it in this range.
kingsize fabric beds look great with studded piping and sculpted head and foot ends. If you have wooden floors, the hardwood feet of some beds in the range are a great choice.
Ottoman options are also available, and the newest designs include extras like a pneumatic TV mechanism or USB charging points.
Superking 6ft Upholstered Beds
The superking upholstered bed range offers you a choice of frame colour, as well as fabric colour, so you can perfectly coordinate your bedroom.
Beds at this size include features like padded head ends, thick upholstered side rails and hotel style headboards.
Ornate feet with brass plating also appear, while some superkings have over 40 fabric choices.
