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. 

So why don’t you contact us for more information today regarding beds for all ages today!


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.

For more information on any of the Birlea products or on delivery, please get in touch with our team today who will be happy to assist you. Check back to our blogs regularly for more great style ideas for your home.


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. With such a wide variety of products, we’ve pulled together some of the team’s favourites, a few of us even have these at home!

Serene Clara

We have started our list with a sense of stylish luxury! The Serene Clara in black nickel comes complete with large round crystals throughout the frame. The design of this bed lends itself well to many different styles of decor, from traditional to modern.
The Serene Clara is available from a small double right up to super kingsize, meaning the more space you have, the grander the bed can be!

Serene Maiden

The Serene Maiden is a firm favourite for those in the team here who love wooden beds. The stunning oak frame boasts a handcrafted cross over pattern that can be viewed as both a classical design and a contemporary design depending upon how you dress the rest of the room. 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.

For more information on the Serene Furnishings range please get in touch with a member of our friendly team today who will be happy to assist you. You can also browse the Serene Furnishings Complete Range.

Metal bed frames

Wooden vs Metal Bed Frames: Which is right for you?

When searching for a new bed, one of the most common sticking points that we see is whether to get wooden or metal bed frames. In order to make the best decision and find the right bed the first time around, it’s important to fully understand the differences. To help you out, we’re going to use our latest blog to explain the benefits of each type of bed frame.

Benefits of a Metal Bed Frame

Metal bed frames are a popular option for a lot of families, particularly those with children. Due to their versatility, durability and customisation, there are endless possibilities when it comes to designing a bedroom. However, what are the key benefits for those interested? Allow us to explore each in more detail:

More Durable and Easier to Clean

Thanks to the easy to maintain nature and durability of a metal bed frame, this makes them a perfect choice for those with children. Offering the ability to be wiped clean makes for an easy clean up in any messy situation. Not only that, but should your child happen to enjoy jumping on the bed, a metal bed frame can be more adept at handling that pressure.

More Design Variety

Metal bed frames are renowned for being a more versatile option if you’re after a certain look for your room. This is because they can come in a variety of different colours, or even be painted by yourself. Again, this is something that can appeal to someone giving their child a themed room. However, it also offers adults a variety of options when redesigning their bedroom.

Cost Differentiation

The general rule of thumb with metal bed frames is that the smaller beds tend to be cheaper than those of a wooden variety. This can change as the size increases or depending on the brand. However, traditionally a metal frame can often be the more economical option.

Benefits of a Wooden Bed Frame

From bringing an elegant aesthetic to your bedroom to reducing noise, wooden bed frames carry a variety of benefits not found in their metal counterparts. Wooden bed frames have held their own in the market as the more traditional style to acquire a homely feel and this comes with good reason.


Less Squeaking, More Sleeping

We’ve all been in that annoying situation where you’re trying to get comfortable only to be frustrated with a barrage of squeaks. The benefit of wooden bed frames is that they’re much less prone to squeaking than the metal alternative. Although squeaking after a long period of time might be inevitable, you’re giving yourself the best chance of a long zero squeak policy with a wooden bed frame.

Bring Elegance to Your Bedroom

One of the factors that tends to sway customers in the direction of a wooden bed frame is the elegance that it can bring to a room. Due to its traditional, homely aesthetic, people tend to associate these types of furniture with cosy and welcoming feelings. A wooden bed frame can get you well on your way to transforming your bedroom into a haven of cosiness.

Recycle Friendly

Due to the materials used in a wooden bed frame being recycle friendly, it can also be a great option for those looking to reduce their carbon footprint. In addition to this, a lot of the materials involved come from sustainable sources.

Wooden or Metal Bed Frame? You Decide

After reading all about the benefits that come with each material, it’s now time for you to make your decision. If you have any further questions regarding either option or any of our range, please contact us. Here at UK Bed Store, we take great pride in maintaining our reputation as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of wooden and metal bed frames. In order to guarantee a comfortable, stylish and durable bed, we carefully source our frames from some of the UK’s leading brands.

Our customers mean the world to us and so we’re always striving to provide them with the best deal possible. That’s why we also offer a Price Match Promise. If you find the same product elsewhere at a better price, please let us know and we’ll try our best to beat it.

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.

Could A Day Bed Be For You? Get In Touch

If you feel like a day bed could be for you, why not treat yourself and browse our range? If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Our expert team will be on hand to guide you through your purchase.
