The Bed!! The one and only piece of furniture we spent most of our relaxing time on. Sometimes when I get too lazy to get up I eat my food on my bed. Other times spending time with family members is a must, that purpose is served by the dining table.
A lot of people asks “which is the best bed in the Indian market?” or “what type of material should I choose for my bed?” with other questions following these.
Choosing a bed depends upon certain factors like the size/space on the bed you need, choosing the type of material gets many people confused, storage needs, bunk bed for kids or not, sofa beds for small apartment or students, and much more.
With all this in mind, I briefed about certain things that I know from my personal experience.
I have categorized the beds available in the Indian market and have suggested the same for people of every class and budget.
I have not mentioned the types of beds that are not available in India like California King Bed, Rocking bed, Vertical bed, Floating bed and other types of custom made beds.
Let’s get on with the categories which will help you to choose the one perfect for you.
CHOOSING THE PERFECT BED
First Step – Size of the bed
The first thing you decide is the size of the bed.
Single size bed dimensions are up to 4 feet wide and 6.3feet long so two people are hard to adjust.
Double size bed dimensions are ideal for a person with a height of 6ft9in” and are 5ft wide so can accommodate two persons easily.
A twin size bed is a marketing term used by brands. It simply means two single sized beds put together or joined together to form a double bed.
King size bed is wider with width up to 6ft 3in” and has the same length as a queen-size bed.
Queen size bed dimensions 6feet6inch length and 5 feet in width.
Full-size bed Dimensions 6feet2inch long and up to 4.4 inches wide
Second Step – Type of material
The next and most confusing thing is the type of material to go with.
Currently, there are 3 types of material available in the Indian market for beds.
- Engineered wood
- Solid wood
It is also called mass timber, composite wood, man-made wood, or manufactured board.
Includes a range of derivative wood products which are manufactured by binding or fixing the strands, particles, fibers, or veneers or boards of wood, together with adhesives, or other methods of fixation to form composite material.
Light and budget-friendly.
This is a hardwood that is free from termites and does not have hollow spaces.
If you have ever heard of Sheesham, teak or shaal then these are the examples of solid wood.
Differentiating between teak, Sheesham and shaal is quite difficult.
I recommend either to ask a carpenter for help or go with big brands which have a reputation.
Solid wood is harder, heavier in weight and long-lasting than engineered wood.
They are simply the beds that have a metal frame instead of a wooden frame.
There can be varieties in metal frame beds like full metal or partial metal with a metal part only on the head side.
Damage resistant and lightweight.
Hard plywood is an example of engineered wood.
It is made by joining two pieces of plywood together then covered and finished so no joining is seen.
Third Step – Storage Type
Next two things depend on your personal choices
One of which is the storage needs and the other is the type of bed that will fit in your bedroom, living room or wherever to plan to place it.
Traditional Box storage bed
They are only recommended if you want to store stuff like blankets, unused items, etc that you might not need to access daily.
It does not have any hydraulics or any feature that helps the ply to uplift on its own.
They have a high risk of health problems like back pains, spinal pain due to uplifting the bed with mattress on it.
Go for them if you are on a low budget or if you won’t be using that feature daily.
Hydraulic storage bed
They are light weighted
No more back pain due to lifting the bed for reaching storage box
Easy to pull-up and pull-down hydraulic mechanism provides you with all the space under the bed to store your stuff.
Hydraulics are the suspensions which make the storage section easily accessible.
This is an advantage over traditional storage beds in which you have to hold the ply door of the storage box.
Drawer storage bed
Modern and elegant look
They have easy to access drawers
Combining form with discreet function, there are spacious built-in drawers to store extra sheets, cushions, and pillowcases.
The only disadvantage is that they have less space as compared to the hydraulic beds. So if you are looking for a larger storage capacity I suggest to go for hydraulic beds which are super easy to use.
Without storage bed
Platform beds are the best example of the without storage bed
They help you maintain a very calm and simple way of living
This type of bed gives your space a good clean look. Proving that, sometimes, less is indeed more
Last thing you do after deciding all the factors mentioned above is choosing the style of bed
Fourth Step – Style of bed
Last but not leastChoose by the Style of bed
These beds have long support at the head side. These were in trends in the last couple of years with platform beds taking over.
(for more than one kid) – kids enjoy these beds most. Falling from above is a myth.
long and wide beds that are very low in height are called the platform beds. These are trending as of now.
something new is happening in the e-world of furniture that leads us to these beds. They can be used for multi-tasks like storing blankets, bedsheets and much more.
The following are the types available of which I have categorized beds according to varying budgets.
