The right luxury bed design combines style, quality, and comfort, enhancing the look of your sleeping space, while enabling you to enjoy hours of blissful rest every night.

Choosing the right luxury bed design can be confusing, though – it’s a big decision after all! So, we at the Luxury Bed Company have written this bed buying guide focusing on frames and headboards to help you make your decision when it comes to design options.

Wooden bed frames

Wooden beds are the oldest and most traditional on the market. From wood panelled designs to upholstered carved frames, four-poster beds and sleigh beds, wooden beds have stood the test of time.

Upholstered bed frames

Upholstered bed frames have fully or partially padded and covered frames. With an endless choice of sumptuous fabrics, colours, and weaves, you can be spoilt for choice - from luxurious velvets to soft, dreamy weaves. 

Sleigh bed frames

Originally a design from the French Empire period, sleigh beds are characterised by an outwardly scrolling headboard and footboard, which are available in wooden and upholstered options. 

Canopy beds

Canopy beds resemble four posters, extending upwards beyond the frame with a horizontal bar connecting each of the four posts. Traditionally, canopy beds had drapes, adding an extra touch of romance. 

Storage beds

The two most popular types of storage beds are drawer storage and ottoman storage. Options can include pull out or sliding options, while the ottoman design is an open storage space underneath the sprung base and typically opens with a hydraulic hinge system. 

Platform bed

This low-profile bed typically has an angular design with a mattress surrounded by a protruding perimeter. This modern era bed can be either upholstered or wooden and suits sleeping spaces with modern décor. 

Winged beds

A winged bed is a timeless classic and often enhanced with button tufting. Originally designed with side hoods, winged beds can add a classical look to any sleeping space and comes in a wide variety of fabric options.

Upholstered headboards

Upholstered headboards have been padded and covered in fabric and are available in every conceivable style and pattern. Offering the height of comfort, they also come with the option to reupholster in the future for a different look and feel. 

Extended headboards

Extended headboards are from the Art Deco period and can bring luxury and grandeur to any bedroom. Available in a wide range of sumptuous fabrics and colours, extended headboards make a big statement.  

Oversized headboards

A popular choice in contemporary bedroom designs, oversized headboards can be secured to the wall – sometimes the entire wall. Oversized headboards can bring a look and feel of luxury to any room and the choice of fabrics are endless. 

Button-tufted headboards

A classic upholstery feature which brings a touch of sophistication to the room. Button tufting techniques can be brought to almost any style of headboard and varying button depths are also available.
