Types of Beds: Which One is Right for You?

1st October 2017

What are the different bed types out there?

It can be quite confusing trying to get your head around all the different kinds of beds that furniture stores have to offer. However, our guide outlines the basic types of bed and what they might mean for you.

These are the current types of bed we have available on our site:

  • Sleigh beds
  • Daybeds
  • Storage beds
  • Upholstered beds
  • Leather beds
  • Shaker beds
  • Trundle beds

Bear in mind, some of these categories can be used interchangeably. For example, we have fabric storage beds and daybeds with trundles! Have a look at our Seville daybed below.

Seville Metal Daybed with Trundle


Daybeds are a beautiful feature for any room and are distinguished by their side rails that are perfect for lounging. They look lovely in children’s bedrooms! We have a range of both metal and wooden daybeds, so you can find the perfect one for you.

Sleigh beds

Sleigh beds suit any bedroom and make a great centrepiece. They are very fairytale-esque, with the headboard and footboard curving outwards. Our Alexandra bed below is a more modern alternative.

Storage beds

If you’re low on space, storage beds are an ideal bedroom solution. They can double up as a place to rest your eyes and somewhere to keep clothes, shoes or other items neatly out of sight. We offer storage beds in different fabrics and sizes so there’s something to suit everyone.

Upholstered beds

There are lots of different types of upholstered beds on our website to choose from. Fabric-covered headboards add a lovely texture to an otherwise plain bedroom.

Shaker beds

Shaker style beds are made to be simple and traditional, always made from wood instead of other more modern materials. Our Hampshire shaker bed below is a beautiful example.

Leather beds

Leather beds add a sleek, modern touch to a bedroom. Our Boston bed doubles up as a sleigh and storage bed, with a lovely leather finish.

Trundle beds

These kinds of beds are perfect for anyone who might have people to stay over a lot. Kids will love having sleepovers with their trundle beds, as will visiting family members who need a place to rest their eyes.

It's your choice!

Of course, we stock many different bed types here at Lakeland Furniture. Essentially, the kind of bed you go for will depend on a number of factors including the size of your room, your storage needs and your interior design preferences.
