Need a New Bed? Here are 5 Unique Options You Might Want to Consider

The bedroom is one of the most important places in any home. The focal point of the bedroom is the bed as it’s the piece of furniture that gives the room its name. If you’re looking to get a bed that’s different from your average design, look through these options to find something unique and personalized!

  1. Floating beds

Floating beds are not a new phenomenon and you can even make one yourself if you fancy DIY. Generally, these beds are supported using the wall and a central stand that you won’t see unless you go under the bed. If you think you’d like to try something new for your bedroom, this could be the choice for you as you can repurpose your old bed and make it float. To make it look even more spectacular, you can add a string some LED lights to the bottom.

Many floating beds on the market can be adjusted to alter the height. Some of the more outrageous versions of the floating bed include the magnetic floating bed by Janjaap Ruijssenaars.

  1. Rocking beds

You probably don’t remember how it felt like to be rocked to sleep by your mother, but perhaps you can experience something similar in a rocking bed. A study proved that the rocking motion helps adults sleep faster, and there have been numerous patents registered for rocking beds with only a few that have become actual products. If you do consider one of these, you’ll pay no less than $3,000.

One of the most widely known rocking beds is designed by German designer Manuel Kloker. Sporting a modern design, this bed was built using a classic bentwood technique that allows the bed to easily rock back and forth.

  1. Bed-in-a-box

Bed-in-a-box mattresses come compressed and rolled in a box when they are delivered to your doorstep. Companies like Brentwood Home make the bed-in-a-box mattress because they understand that many people need an affordable, convenient alternative to the inconvenient process of shopping for a mattress. When your new bed-in-a box arrives, all you have to do is pull it into the house, unpack it in any spot of your choosing, and voilà!—the mattress expands into a full-size bed. Watch out for companies that manufacture these beds and leave them packed for long periods of time as it might result in damage. You’re better off finding a company that makes the bed when you place an order.

  1. Swinging/hanging beds

Swinging beds are suspended from the ceiling and while they produce a gentle rocking motion, they are different from rocking beds in that rocking beds rock back and forth while swinging beds may go in any direction. They are versatile enough to be suspended from anything and anywhere whether it’s in the living room or bedroom, gazebo, or even from a tree. Depending on the type you get, you might be able to fold it up anytime you want it out of the way.

  1. The loft bed

Loft beds have been in use for a long time, especially for children’s and teenagers’ rooms. A loft bed lets you save space and creates practical decor solutions for the bedroom. They may be anchored to the ceiling and walls with a ladder made available for climbing. The higher your ceiling, the higher you can take the bed, and the more space you’ll have for a workstation, a mini library, a relaxation area, or anything else you would like to do with the space.
