The Best In Double Bed Frames

The double bed is one of the most common sizes found in UK homes with more adults opting for a double than any other size. So finding the perfect double bed frame can sometimes be a bit of a minefield. The team here at UK Bed Store have pulled together a collection of their favourites. From the one they have at home, to the ones they wish they had at home.

For The Ladies

Ladies who are picking out a double bed for themselves are more likely to seek out something eye-catching at stylish. After all, if you can’t have style in your bedroom where can you!
Birlea Canterbury – This Victorian-inspired frame offers an air of elegance, with a touch of feeling like a princess.
LPD Florence – This double bed frame increases on the elegance of the Canterbury and includes scrolls featured in the frame, not to mention the large round crystals in pace to complete the look.
Birlea Hannover – Crushed velvet is back in style! It might not be to everyone’s taste, but many of the ladies out there love it! This Birlea Hannover frame offers a stunning space, covered in a steel crushed velvet, perfect to suit any bedroom.

Calling All Bachelors

Some men will seek out the manliest frame they can as a show of masculinity, while others will look for something nice and simple that does the job.
LPD Milton – You cannot get much more simple than the LPD Milton black metal bed frame. Simple shapes and lines keep the frame minimal enough to suit any room and style.
GFW Bed In a Box– This simple leather bed frame encompasses the mattress to give you a completely boxed in finish on every side. Simple yet masculine.
Pippa – The Pippa bed frame boasts an appearance not far dissimilar to pipework. Taking a look at this black metal frame is a must for all bachelors.

A Bed To Share

While many will think that the biggest choice when sharing a bed is the mattress, you also need to consider the bed frame itself. Finding one that both of you like the look and feel of can go a long way.
LPD Prado Plus – When sharing a room (or a bed) space is always key. Our ottoman beds have increased in popularity for this reason. That’s why the Prado Plus is the perfect choice for couples.
Birlea Corona – Many couples sharing a bed look for a sturdy structure that won’t wake the other if you get up in the night. What is better than a high-quality chunky pine bed frame?

A Teenage Touch

Many teenagers are being treated to a double bed as they get older (space permitting) as they no longer need floor space, and some tend to spend a lot of time in bed too! So why not find them a double bed frame they like?
Time Living Waverly – This simple frame boasts a wavey headboard made from simple silver effect metal. Keeping the design simple with a hint of style. Not too much for a teenage room.
GFW Side Lift – All teenagers need that extra storage space, no matter how big their room or wardrobe is. That’s why we have added the ottoman bed to the list. In this can the side lift as we know that there will be a high chance that only one side is accessible.

For more information on finding the perfect double bed frame for you, please get in touch with a member of our team today who will be happy to assist you. You can also head over to our blogs for a range of information and ideas. The majority of our beds are available in multiple sizes to suit your home and space.

Birlea, Designed With Style In Mind

Midlands-based furniture designers Birlea pride themselves on offering a vast collection of furniture based on styles from around the world. The family-run business incorporates both classic and contemporary designs, offering something for everyone. That’s why the team here at UK Bed Store consider them a fantastic brand to offer through our online store!

Birlea Beds

The Birlea collection of beds is so vast that no shortlist can ever do it justice. However, our team have tried their best to pull together a collection of both our favourites and our customer’s favourites across a couple of the different styles that we offer.
Birlea Loxley – A nod to the art deco era (we hear it’s making a comeback!) the Birlea Loxley is a stunning coloured fabric frame. Available in green, blue, mustard and grey the frame includes a diamond-patterned headboard as the central focus.
Birlea Berlin – Ottoman beds are increasing in popularity, this means that the Birlea Berlin has been too. Unlike many ottoman beds, this one boasts a crushed velvet finish.
Birlea Urban – The name gives away the style of this frame. The Birlea Urban is surely for the more modern, urban of interior designs. The black metal framework is completed with rustic looking wood panels for both the head and footboards.
Birlea Bronte – The Birlea Bronte is a classic and elegant metal bed frame that can comfortably suit any style of bedroom and is available in black or cream.

Children’s Beds

Children love fun beds! There’s no need for in-depth science as to why fun beds draw their attention more, so we’ll go straight in with our three favourites from the Birlea Children’s bed range.
Birlea House – The Birlea House is a children’s 3ft bed frame, which is low to the ground, with a house-shaped canopy over the bed. They can play house, hang toys from the rafters and even throw a sheet over to make a little hideaway den!
Birlea Home – The Birlea Home is very much similar to the house, however, this option is raised slightly off the floor and includes a headboard, footboard and a sideboard allowing it to turn into more of a daybed.
Birlea Teepee – A little more on the fun side, the Birlea Teepee is similar to the last two, but in the shape of a teepee! We know a few little ones who much prefer to sleep in a teepee!

Birlea Mattresses

No bed is complete without a mattress, so Birlea has included a collection of mattresses in their range too.
Birlea Sleepsoul Cloud – The Birlea Sleepsoul is a firm favourite from the collection. This mattress offers a combination of pocket spring and memory foam to offer the sleeper the highest level of comfort possible.
Birlea Sleepsoul Paradise – Similar to the cloud the Birlea Sleepsoul Paradise has an underlayer of pocket springs but is then topped with pressure relieving cooling gel. Offering the sleeper comfort and cooling in one space. Great for those who have back or joint issues.

Each of the beds and mattresses in the collection are available in a range of sizes to suit your space and needs.

Birlea offers a range of furniture to both compliment your bedroom, but also to dress up your lounge, dining room and other areas in the house. We highly recommend taking a look at the complete collection. Their eye-catching pieces will have guests asking who the design is.

The Very Best Of Serene Furnishings

Here at UK Bed Store one of our favourite brands is the wonderful Serene Furnishings. We have a vast collection of their products available right the way across our website.

Serene Maiden

The Serene Maiden is a firm favourite for those in the team here who love wooden beds.

This solid frame includes a sprung base to add extra comfort for the sleeper.
The Serene Maiden is available in double, king and super-king size, perfect for larger rooms.

Serene Latino

This leather framed bed is the perfect choice for the smaller rooms. Available in black or white leather the Serene Latino offers just as much design as you see in double leather beds, but on a much smaller scale. The addition of built-in drawers helps to increase the functionality of the bed.

Serene Oslo

We wouldn’t be branching across the whole Serene bed range if we didn’t include everyone’s favourite bunk beds. When you have children sharing a room, you always have the option of taking up more floor space with beds or moving them onto bunk beds. The Serene Oslo is the perfect option for bunks. The metal frames are available in either black or silver, and are hardwearing, allowing your children to grow with the same beds. The range also includes the triple sleeper, which boasts a double bottom bunk rather than a single.

Serene Paris Guest

The Serene Paris is the perfect bed for children, teenagers, or even as a guest bed, thanks to its fold away extra bed. So whether the kids are having sleepovers or you have more guests staying than beds, this is a great addition for occasional use. Available in white or black.

Flexa Nordic Day Bed With Storage

To Daybed Or Not

While daybeds have been around for many many years, we find many people haven’t heard of them, or have, but consider them to be a little less than they actually are. So here’s what you need to know.

What Is A Daybed?

A daybed is typically the same as any other single (or even small single) bed that is on the market, with just one simple added extra. A third side. Instead of just having a headboard and a footboard, a daybed also has a side on one of its longer edges.

Who Uses A Daybed?

We quite often find that many people are under the misconception that daybeds are only for occasional use. As they are actually built onto a full bed frame, pop a decent mattress on and you can certainly use them every night! They may a great bed for children and teenagers alike, thanks to their sofa like functionality. It allows you to offer them somewhere to turn into a sofa, with just a few added cushions, inside their own space (great for teenagers who don’t want to join the family watching Eastenders!). You can also use them as an occasional bed, such as in a spare room as they can just appear as an attractive seat when not in use.

Our Favourite Daybeds

Daybeds are available in a range of styles, so it’s not always just as simple as saying you would like a daybed. Would you like a simple wooden frame, a chunky wooden frame, or a classic metal frame? You also might want to consider the option of having a trundle bed underneath. If the daybed will be used as a child’s bed, chances are they’ll want a sleepover at some point so they come in useful, likewise if it’s in the spare room. However, if it’s somewhere to sit, lay outfits on in your dressing room, you might want the space underneath for storage. So here’s a collection of our favourites with all that in mind.
Flexa Nordic Daybed – The Flexa Nordic Daybed is everything you could need in both a child’s or a spare room. The cute and simple white wooden framed bed comes complete with a trundle bed and storage drawers underneath! Great for sleepovers and storage. This bed has a variety of headboard and footer options including a pink or grey insert or plain white slats.
LPD Florance Daybed – The Florence Daybed is the vision of a classic daybed, with a higher longside than many modern daybeds the ornate metal frame is available in black or classic white. This frame shows the true beauty of a daybed, and with some cushions, the high side makes it a great sofa if needed.
GFW Madrid Daybed – The Madrid Daybed is the ultimate in wooden framed daybeds. Boasting a traditional wooden frame in either plain wood or white this bed can be dressed up to look like just your average simple bed or a plush sofa. However, you would like to use it.

Always remember that when you invest in a new bed, you need to consider the most appropriate mattress for your needs. If you are planning to use the daybed as a nightly sleeper, spend a little more on a high-quality mattress than you would on a sofa for the dressing room. When it comes to mattresses, the quality is in the money.

The Complete New Bed Experience

Here at UK Bed Store we are well known for our excellent range of beds and mattresses, but did you know that we also stock other accessories that you need to give yourself the complete new bed feeling?

Pillows

Everyone has different needs when it comes to pillows, and they can be even more individual than your mattress as you will never have to share your pillow (unless the kids or dogs join you!).
From memory foam pillows that adapt to your head and neck to the softest pillows for front sleepers and everyone in between. Choosing the right pillow is just as important as choosing your mattress as it can adjust how you sleep and the alignment of your back.
Read more about our range of pillows on their dedicated page.

Duvets

Many of us will have two separate duvets, the winter duvet and the summer duvet. Having two allows you to have the best tog rating for the time of year. Higher togs will be thicker and warmer duvets ready for winter, where lower togs will be great to keep you cooler during the summer months.
Head over to our duvet page for information on choosing the right duvet for your new bed.

Mattress Protectors

When it comes to investing in your new mattress, it is a big investment that many of us only make every 8 years (as advised). So you want to do your best to ensure that your purchase is protected as much as possible to ensure that it remains in good condition throughout its life. Here is where investing in a mattress protector will do wonders for your bed.
Where we recommend hoovering or cleaning your mattress regularly to remove dust, skin cells and other assorted particles, by investing in a mattress topper, you can take this off and pop it through the wash, reducing the care that you need to give your mattress (although we do still recommend giving it a hoover or clean every so often!).
Mattress toppers are available in a number of formats, including waterproof (suitable for potty training time) and plush, which is great in the winter months.

Bed Linen

Bed linen is one of the most individual choices you can make in your bedroom. With a vast range available from a high number of retailers, you can find anything to match the decor of your room. Here at UK Bed Store, our range has something to suit all budgets while keeping everything high quality.

TV-bed

A TV In The Bed? Why Not!

Over the last 18 months, you may have spent an increased amount of time watching TV from your bed. So have you considered swapping out your current bed for one with a TV built-in?

What Is A TV Bed?

A TV bed is one of the more modern styles of bed on the market. Designed like a sleigh bed, the TV mechanism is then built into the footboard of the bed. The TV mechanism will be movable via remote control and will be able to withstand a number of TVs providing they meet the specifications of the frame.

TV’s

The collection of TV beds that we offer here at UK Bed Store do not include the TV. We have chosen to offer beds without the TV as this means that you can opt to use your existing bedroom TV (without the expense of paying for a new TV and providing it fits), it also means that you can upgrade to the latest smart TV as and when you like without having to change your bed too. We appreciate that technology changes far more often than you change your bed, and do not want you to feel like you have to keep your current TV.
When it comes to selecting a TV to fit into your bed, you will need to consult the specification of that specific frame as they can vary slightly between different brands and bed sizes.

Minimalist

An increasing interior design trend is minimalism. From fewer ornaments on display, to fewer pieces of furniture in the room and even completely clear surfaces. A great way to continue this into your bedroom, but still have the option for a TV is to invest in a TV bed. This means that you can remove the TV from the wall or unit and have it safely tucked away in the footer of your bed until you want to use it. These beds also come with ample space to have your entertainment system tucked away underneath, meaning there is no need for unsightly wires to be on show.

Storage

A number of the TV beds that we have to offer are also ottoman beds, like the stunning Kaydian Barnard range. Along with saving space where you would usually keep your TV, you can also save storage space around your room by simply lifting your mattress (which is on an easy move base) and revealing ample storage space, great for bedding, clothes, kids toys and even hiding those Christmas and birthday presents!

For more information n the range of TV bed that we have in stock, please get in touch with a member of our team today. Remember to head over to our mattresses to find the best one to suit you and your sleep habits.

Childrens-bedroom

Creating Exciting Children’s Rooms

When it comes to getting your children to stay in bed for the night, you might think that the best thing to do is remove all the exciting things from the room. But that’s what fuels their imagination and their dreams.

Power Their Imagination

Our children thrive on the power of imagination. From creating characters in the toys that they play with to running wild in their dreams. Taking away the stimulation in the bedroom might have the opposite effect than you were hoping for. Make the room an exciting place to be and you will find them wanting to go in there more and more.

Change Out The Bed

As your children get older, ensure that you swap out the bed to suit them. When you have young children, where you can, treat them to an existing bed that suits their personality, whether you have a princess, or a lion tamer find something that reflects them.
The range of children’s beds we have in stock at UK Bed Store includes four-poster princess beds, race car beds and even teepee beds, you are sure to find the perfect one for your little one.

Match The Room

Changing the bed alone can make a big difference, but why not make the whole room match! While we can’t help you with the paint, transfers and stickers, we can help you with other fun things for the room!
In our range of Children’s Bedroom Furniture we have a variety of fun pieces that can help to complement your little one’s new bed! From space-themed tables and chairs, to delicate dressing tables, your little one can enjoy a whole new room.

The Mattress

When it comes to getting your little ones a new bed, remember to consider getting them a new mattress too. While mattresses are advised to be changed every 8 years, when it comes to children’s mattresses, this might not be so easy. If you are moving away from a cot bed to their first proper bed, a good fitting mattress is key. If you are unsure about the right size mattress for the bed you are choosing, you can always contact a member of our team who will be happy to assist you.

Our children are the highlights of our life, they can also be the reason we don’t get much sleep some nights. Check out our blog on bringing back bedtime for some great tips on getting your little ones back into a good routine.

Blissful-bedroom

Switching From a Bedroom Home Office

As the UK Lockdowns are looking to ease within the coming months, it means that many of us will be back in the office. So we can wave goodbye to the bedroom-come-office and take back the sanctuary of our space.

Bedroom Bliss

Now that we are moving all of our work back to the office we can take back our bedroom and turn it into the sanctuary that we need at the end of a hard day at work.
Your bedroom needs to be the space where you can switch off at the end of the day, away from all the stresses of work and all the noise of the outside world. Once you have used the space for a home office, you can find it harder to switch off at night. So if you are heading back into the office full time, we highly recommend a complete bedroom revamp to remove all that built up work energy in the room.
The main things to consider when reinventing your bedroom are:
Your Bed
The biggest item in your bedroom is usually your bed, so swapping out this key feature alone can make all the difference. Find a new frame that suits your personality to make it a focal point, or opt for a divan for minimal impact. Remember to change up your mattress too as this should be changed at least every 8 years.
Your Storage Solutions
Storage in your bedroom is key. Whether you have a grand wardrobe, or a number of smaller chests of drawers, this is where you can put everything away and remove the clutter from the room. When it comes to new storage, ensure that you have enough to put everything in the room away, without them over powering the room. You can even opt for an ottoman bed, which offers you extra, hidden, storage.
Your Comforts
Each one of us will have a different piece of furniture that we think will add extra comfort to your bedroom. If you have a chair in your room, that you have ended up using while you have been working, it’s time to swap it out. Removing it will help to remove the feeling of work in the room. The same goes for the likes of dressing tables and desks.

Simple Yet Functional

As many places have made a change towards partial home working, you may still be required to work at home from time to time. This means that you will still need to have a workstation somewhere in your home. If the case is that it needs to be in your bedroom, figure out how you can make this look less like a workstation when it comes to night time. This can help you to relax better at bedtime.
A simple yet functional solution, that can still allow your room to look like a bedroom, is to choose a good-sized dressing table. This will allow you to use the space for a laptop during the day, with room to pull up a chair, and use it as intended when you aren’t working.

Here at the UK Bed Store, we only supply the very best quality products to our customers. If you have any questions regarding our products or delivery service, please contact a member of our dedicated team today who will be happy to assist you. Check out our blogs for a range of ideas on how to spruce up your bedroom or choosing the right mattress for you.

Refresh your Mattress with a Mattress Topper 

If your mattress is feeling a little worn, or just isn’t working for you anymore, then a mattress topper could be the perfect solution to freshen up the feel of your mattress, and improve your sleep!  

What is a mattress topper? 

A mattress topper is a thick layer of memory foam that can sit on top of your existing mattress and provide extra comfort. 

Mattress toppers come in a range of sizes, to fit different sized mattresses, and vary in thickness according to your preference. In addition to providing extra comfort, mattress toppers also help to protect and extend the life of a mattress. 

A cost effective option 

Investing in a mattress topper is a much cheaper option than completely replacing your mattress, so if you’re looking to try and extend the life of your mattress, or you’ve only just purchased a mattress that’s not comfortable enough, a mattress topper is a fantastic option. 

Customise your mattress 

Mattress toppers can be removed, so if you prefer a softer, foam mattress to keep you cosy in the winter, but like a firm, spring mattress to keep you cooler in the summer, then a mattress topper is the perfect solution! 

The ease at which a mattress topper can be removed from a mattress also means that they’re easily washable, making them an excellent tool for keeping your mattress clean and fresh. So if you like to eat, drink and snuggle with your pets in bed, a mattress topper could be an excellent solution for you!

If you’re thinking of treating yourself to a new mattress topper, why not browse our range here! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us, our expert team is on hand to guide you through your purchase.

What is an Ottoman Bed? 

If you’re thinking of investing in a new bed frame, an ottoman bed could be an excellent option! Ottoman beds are quickly gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional divan storage beds, but what exactly sets them apart? 

An ottoman bed frame features gas-lift hydraulics, this hydraulic system lifts the mattress up and away from the base of the bed, to reveal an empty base providing a fantastic storage space! 

Declutter your space

Similarly to traditional storage beds, ottoman beds provide a fantastic storage option, so if you’re short on space, an ottoman bed can provide the perfect storage solution to help you to declutter your bedroom.
Ottoman beds provide more space than traditional divan storage beds, as the space below the mattress is not broken up by drawers, instead the entire base of the bed is open. This creates an excellent space for the storage of towels, linens and cushions, and anything else that you need to store away!

Free up space in smaller rooms

Ottoman beds are an excellent option for smaller rooms. Not only could an ottoman bed frame be a fantastic choice for your bedroom, but it could also be a great way to free up space in your guest room too.
Using an ottoman frame to store things that you usually keep in your guest room can negate the need for you to have cupboards, or other storage solutions in the room too. So if your guest room, or bedroom, is on the smaller side, using an ottoman bed as a storage solution, and removing some of the furniture that you usually use to store these items, could make the room feel bigger and more spacious! 

A stylish choice

Ottoman bed frames provide an extremely practical storage solution, and they look good too! Our selection of ottoman frames boasts wooden and upholstered frames. So you’re guaranteed to find a stylish bed frame that perfectly fits with the look of your bedroom.
We offer both lift and slide ottomans too, so you can choose not only the perfect look for your bed, but also the style of bed that works best for you. 

If you think an ottoman bed frame could be the perfect choice for you, browse our range here! If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us, our expert team is on hand to guide you through your purchase.
