Which Bed is Best for Your Age?

Some people say age is just a number and whilst it might be, certain products are definitely catered to specific age groups. You wouldn’t see adults aged 40 playing with nerf guns for example. 

What we would like to know however is; does this apply to beds? From comfy day beds to luxury upholstered beds, are these beds meant to be for specific ages or can they be enjoyed by anyone?

Firstly, there are particular beds that are just impractical for certain age groups. If you are over the age of 65 you might not want to climb up a high rise bed. Similarly, if you have a 5 year old child you wouldn’t want to see them in a limited edition king size with a tailor made headboard. 

So, if you are thinking of making a bed purchase in early 2022 and are struggling to decide which is best for you and more specifically your age, we’ve got you covered. 

High Sleeper and Mid Sleeper Beds

These little gems are perfect for children but you might not know, high sleepers in particular are becoming increasingly popular with teenagers and even young professionals. 

Mid sleeper beds are very popular with younger children. The slightly elevated beds offer ample storage underneath for toys and smaller clothing making them perfect for children aged 4-12. In addition, the bed being slightly off the ground gives younger children an element of fun as they think the bed has a little bit of something special.  

High sleeper beds are again popular with younger children as they enjoy the novelty of being high up in their room. However, we have found these beds can be even more popular with teenagers and, rather surprisingly, young adults. 

This is because high rise beds provide a fantastic opportunity to install an office desk setup which is perfect for giving your bed a sense of functionality. Teenagers love spending hours gaming with their friends whilst young professionals love the practicality of being able to roll out of bed and log straight onto their work laptop. 

This is particularly beneficial for young professionals who live in a house share or in a city apartment where there is not an over abundance of space available. So if you are in these age categories and are looking for a new bed, high and mid sleeper beds might be ideal for you.

The Thuka Range

Whilst we are on the topic of beds for younger children, we would like to highlight our Thuka range. For many of your little ones, the joy of Christmas has now worn off. Their bedroom floors are being scattered with the toys they were looking forward to all year and their beds are being slowly filled with more and more blankets as the colder nights draw in. 

You might not be thinking it now but this is the perfect time to treat them to a new bed. This is where Thuka comes in. Thuka offers funky and vibrant beds ideally suited to younger children and teenagers. 

Thuka is a Danish brand that caters their beds specifically to children. They offer hip and trendy designs, a fantastic degree of flexibility and a brilliant opportunity for your young ones to grow with them. How the bed looks is very important to younger children. If they happen to be showcasing one of the many stylish Thuka designed beds when their friends come for a sleepover, there is no doubt they will be jealous. 

Adult Beds, Where to Start?

Whilst there are vast opportunities available for teenagers, kids and even young adults, this is nothing compared to options available for adults. 

To clarify, when I refer to adults, I am referring to 25-45 year olds. Adults want beds that can usually be described as sleek, homely and traditional. From faux leather beds to unique wooden bed frame beds to even coil memory foam mattresses, the possibilities are endless. 

If you have ever browsed our extensive catalogue, you might have garnered that beds tailored to adults are most of the beds we supply. We would like to take this opportunity to highlight a few stand outs. 


Even though beds catered to children offer fantastic customisation, this is nothing compared to what is on offer for adults. 

When you are thinking of constructing your bed, you might want to start with what frame you want. Do you want a metal frame? Do you need a double bed frame? Are you thinking of upgrading to a king size or is a single more than sufficient? 

Then, after you have decided on the best bed frame for you, you will need to make the decision on your mattress. 

Serene Furnishings 

Whilst on the topic of having a plethora of options, we would like to highlight serene furnishings. 

Founded back in 2005, Serene Furnishings have quickly become one of the UK’s leading brands for beds. They offer contemporary designs, sleek fittings and all of their products are of exceptional quality. 

Mattresses for Seniors 

Beds are important for seniors but arguably the more important aspect of your bed is the accompanying mattress. 

Although many of us love a comfy mattress. When seniors are enquiring about a new bed, they will want to pay particular attention to the mattress. The right mattress has to be comfy, help relieve stress and also be aesthetically pleasing. A fantastic example of a mattress that perfectly fits this criteria is one of our deluxe feather mattresses. Be sure to check out our full range of mattresses on our mattresses page.

We hope you now have a better understanding of how even though any bed can be enjoyed by anyone. There are certain beds that might be better suited to you.

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.

Why Day Beds Are The Perfect Spare Room Space Saver

Flexa Nordic Day Bed With StorageMaybe you’re looking into decorating your new spare room and are wondering how to get the most out of your space. If you find yourself without much space to work with, but want to maximise the opportunities for what it could be, look no further. Our selection of day beds with storage options and pull out underbeds offer a variety of benefits to help unlock your spare room’s potential. Read our guide below to find out more.

Five Reasons A Day Bed Might Be Perfect For You

The Size

The first thing that you take into account when decorating any room should be the space and how to use it. Does your spare room have a lot of space? Would anything more than a single bed frame take up too much space? Day beds are a really versatile bed that can in some models, offer up to two single beds for the size of just one. Its ability to transform into a stylish seating area also saves you from committing to using the spare room solely as a bedroom.

The Functionality

Developing more upon that, one of the day bed’s real strengths is in it’s functionality. If you want a practical, cosy and versatile spare room that can transition easily from a man cave or dressing room to a guest bedroom, look no further. With the ability to be used for seating during the day, our day beds will make you the ultimate host whether it’s for your next family gathering or your kid’s next sleepover.

The Style

With our wide range of day beds here at the UK Bed Store, you’ll have plenty of options to choose from. We have day beds in a variety of colours, wood and metal. With collaborations from brands including Julian Bowen, Flintshire Furniture and GFW, we’re sure that we’ll have a style to fit your room. With both a headboard and a footboard, these are distinct from sofa beds, offering a contemporary and stylish fit for any lounge or spare room.

The Storage

Especially handy in the season of post-Christmas clutter, we have a selection of kids day beds with storage options available. Tired of throwing things under the bed to get dusty and hard to find? We’ve got the bed to keep you organised. Our Flexa Nordic Day Beds for kids not only provide you with a trundle mattress that can be pulled out for an extra sleeper, but they also provide you with two storage drawers for any leftover Lego, untidy toys or anything else that you may need to pack away tidily.

The Extra Bed

As mentioned when discussing our day beds with storage, we also have models that offer you two beds for the size of one. With a lot of our range, you can also get a pull out bed in the form of a pull-out trundle or an under bed frame. With detailing to disguise the underbeds in the form of anything from wooden drawers to fabric button detailing, you can stylishly double the sleeping capacity of your spare room to become the ultimate house guest.

Day Beds Stylish

Day beds give you the best of both worlds

Day beds are the best option for homeowners who are short on space and looking to add a guest or spare bed to one of their rooms.

Sometimes we don’t realise how limited we are for space until our guests are on the doorstep, so day beds are an easy way to fix that.

The UK Bed Store team have also found these popular for people who have a home office and occasionally require some down-time between tasks.

Day beds can become alternative furniture

Depending which room you are looking to add day beds to, they can become a stylish sofa or lounger.

Day beds can also double up, with some models such as the Sleep Design Versailles (available at UK Bed Store), having the unique feature of another single mattress bed that slides from underneath making it a double bed.

This type of bed is ideal if you have a son, daughter or other relative who visits occasionally with their partner, possibly at Christmas or over the summer; as you will not compromise on space and can fit everyone in quite comfortably.

The choice is yours for day beds

At the UK Bed Store we offer a number of options for day beds that can suit any style of room.

For example we have a host of metal framed day beds or we have various wooden ranges in different finishes, tailored to fit the style of the room it will be used in. Some of the wooden models such as the Kid Arctic, as you can probably tell from the name, is extremely popular for parents needing more rooms for a growing family.

Space saving day beds

The biggest advantage of a daybed is obviously its dual use as both a bed and a lounger but another key advantage is that many also come with an under bed which can be raised to the same height as the main bed to offer additional sleeping space. This is very ideal for if more than one person wants to sleep on the day bed. It’s also a fantastic space saving solution as the bed can be tucked neatly away when not in use.

The GFW Memphis bed is a prime example of this type of bed, French vintage inspired with a metal design it can easily be turned into a larger bed with the use of a trundle and currently retails at an incredible £159.

Another popular option is the top of the range Limelight Zodiac day bed in mink fabric. Stunningly presented, although the underbed does not pull out and up to the same height as the main bed, it does however pull out as a separate 3ft bed.

Day Beds – The Alternative Furnishing Choice

The Many Advantages of Day Beds

Day beds are often overlooked during the decorating and furnishing stages, with customers automatically making a beeline for regular beds – sometimes having never heard of day beds at all. The beauty of the day bed design is in its duality; it can act as both a bed and a lounger, completely transforming a guest room into a place to relax and spend time in during the day, not just a place to retire to at nighttime.

Metal or Wooden Day Beds

As well as being incredibly practical, day beds are also stylish and versatile; they can be dressed with throws and cushions during the day, and with bedding at night. Choose from either metal or wooden day beds, which ever best suits the décor of your room.

Our Birlea Milano day bed is perfect for those looking to add a little sophistication to the room – its black metal finish is chic and elegant, and its size enables you to make better use of the space around it.

Alternatively, the Thuka Trendy 7 day bed is available in five different colours, with optional extras such as clip on shelves and bendy lights. This is ideal for you child’s bedroom; choosing a day bed frees up space for toys and allows children more room to play.

Are you looking for a larger day bed?

Whilst day beds are usually sold as single beds, a number of models have the option of a trundle, which can be pulled out from underneath the bed to offer more sleeping space. This is ideal if more than one person will be using the day bed, and it still allows you to save space in the room as the trundle is tucked away beneath the day bed.

Our Sleep Design Versailles day bed and trundle is a convenient option with a sprung slatted base and French design. The trundle raises to the height of the day bed, making for a much more comfortable night’s sleep for your guests.
