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.

Why Faux Leather Beds are a stylish choice for your home

Faux leather beds are becoming an increasingly popular choice for homeowners looking to add a touch of class to their bedrooms.

Faux leather beds to fit every style

Here at UK Bed Store boasts a wide variety of faux leather beds that can suit every style, so here’s some great reasons this kind of bed is for you.

  • Affordability – When comparing the price of faux leather beds to wooden beds there’s no real comparison. So if you are looking for a quality bed on a budget, this could be the one.
  • Clever Storage Solutions – Faux leather and leather beds can be perfect for storage too, such as the GFW End Lift Ottoman, which provides a storage space underneath the mattress where you can store gifts, extra pillows or seasonal clothes.
  • Easy to clean – Faux leather beds have a treated surface, making them easy to clean and maintain. A good tip from the UK Bed Store team is to keep your bed out of direct sunlight to avoid fading. To clean your bed, you simply need to use warm soapy water with a lint free cloth or use specialist cleaners and polishes.
  • Lack of imperfections – Because they use a manufactured material, faux leather beds are much more uniform in texture and colour, making the chances of imperfections small.

Here at the UK Bed Store we sell an unmatched variety of faux leather beds, so whether you need a single, double or king size we’ve got loads of colours and styles to choose from.

Leather Beds – Real vs. Faux:

The issues surrounding the use of real leather products are genuine and diverse, too much so for one blog post to capture. In the interest of humanity, we only stock faux leather beds in our collection. To broach the issue is tricky, but when it comes to aesthetic issues, there are clear positives and negatives.

Real vs. Faux – The Differences for Leather Beds:

Leather Beds in Staffordshire from UK Bed Store

Firstly, let’s consider the merits of using real leather. It possess an unmistakable smell and touch that’s evocative of its luxurious appearance. Not only that, but it wears with age, often giving it a more distinguished and mature look as time passes. These traits simply can’t be replicated. However, leather is also high maintenance. To keep it looking its best, it require regular waxing. It also tends to stretch with use, not a positive trait when used for a leather bed.

On the other hand, there is faux leather. Faux leather is very low cost and is produced to order. It’s shape and colour aren’t defined by the hide of the right beast. It involves less overall waste, both in terms of material and in terms of wildlife. Faux leather is much lower maintenance. If anything is spilled on the body of a leather bed, it can easily be wiped clean – and waterproof options are available. Faux leather also doesn’t crack or fade like real leather – associated positives and negatives as they are, depending on whether you want to keep the look or let it mature. Faux leather does come in a wide range of finishes and colours and, as such, can emulate the look of a mature leather bed right from day one.

The choice of which materials to use is always up the designers, and of course up to you the customer as to which products you want to support. Let us know which type of leather you prefer in the comments bellow!
