What are the most popular types of beds for sale?

There are so many types of beds for sale that choosing the right one can be a daunting task, but a bed is the most important element of your bedroom furniture, so it’s worth the effort to pick the one that is perfectly suited for your space. Size, style, and overall bed type are all considerations to keep in mind when you’re choosing from the myriad of beds for sale. 

Want to make your decision-making a little simpler? Read on to learn more about all the different styles of beds for sale and get all the information you need to make the perfect pick for your bedroom. 

Bunk beds

Mainly used in children’s bedrooms, bunk beds are a fantastic space-saver and a fun addition to kids’ rooms. Most bunk beds for sale consist of two single beds, stacked one on top of the other, but you can also find bunk bed options with a larger bottom bunk, or even triple bunks with three sleeping spaces. 

Similar to bunk beds, loft beds and mid sleeper beds are ideal for kids, especially in smaller rooms. Instead of a lower bed in this type of configuration, the sleeping spot sits above a desk or storage setup, bringing multifunctional appeal to a compact piece.

Divan beds

Divan beds are a simple but appealing option that are suited to almost any bedroom. At its most minimalist, a divan bed is a rectangular base on which you can set your mattress, but there are so many other options for divan beds that let you really customise the look and function of this versatile furniture piece. 

You can select divan bases with built in storage, with one, two, or more drawers that offer a convenient place to keep extra bedding and other items. You can also pair a divan bed with various headboards, giving your bedroom setup exactly the look you want for your space. 

Fabric beds

From small single beds to spacious super king beds, and for all the sizes in between, you have the  choice from  a number of materials when you’re looking at the beds for sale at Corcoran’s. And fabric upholstered beds are a lovely option when you’re creating a soft and comfortable space to sleep. 

Fabric gives you plenty of choice in terms of colour, meaning you can match your bed to the overall colour palette of your bedroom. Most fabric beds for sale feature tufted headboards, and you can opt for a variety of designs (geometric, channel fluting, etc.) depending on the style you want for your space. 

Ottoman beds

Like divan beds, ottoman beds are an appealing option when you are looking for built-in storage in your bedroom. This bed style features a lift up design that lets you pull up the mattress and reveal an open storage area underneath, hidden in the base of the bed. 

While you can always opt for a traditional bed and push boxes or containers underneath, ottoman beds conceal the items you’re storing to maintain a clean and uncluttered look. This makes ottoman beds a perfect choice for an elegant bedroom setup that helps to keep your space tidy and organised as well. 

Sofa beds

Not all beds will be slept in every night, and if you’re choosing a bed for a room that will share space with a home office, or one that will let your living room convert into a guest bedroom on short notice, then sofa beds offer the ultimate in multifunctional practicality. 

Set up your sofa bed to enjoy comfy seating during the day, and then convert it into a cosy bed at night with a simple mechanism that brings convenience to hosting guests. An array of sizes and styles means that you can slot sofa beds into your space with ease. 

Wooden beds

Wooden beds are one of the most popular types of beds for sale, and when you look at their classic design and high-quality craftsmanship, it’s easy to see why. Wood bed frames are timeless, and they fit into both modern and traditional bedroom decor styles with ease. 

You can opt for a natural finish, or a bed that’s painted in any colour you like, ensuring a perfect match for your bedroom setup. There are also wood beds with built-in drawers, ornately-detailed headboards, and other features that add extra style and practical appeal to the design.
