Types of Beds

Types of Beds

From the beginning of time, creatures have desired a comfortable spot to rest their bodies at the end of the day. And humans are no exception. We started with a pile of hides in the corner of the cave, improved to the straw-stuffed mattresses of pioneer cabins, and today have ample choices that suit our sleeping whims as well as our spacesfrom elegant four-posters in spacious master suites to hideaway beds in cramped studio apartments. Read on for a definitive list of all the bed types. Please note: You can read more about air beds, canopy beds, futon beds, headboards, poster beds, sleigh beds, and toddler beds in additional in-depth buying guides.

Air Beds

Ideal for guests, an air bed can be folded and stored until needed, then blown up with a pump or hair dryer to turn any space into a sleeping spot. They come in twin, full, queen, and king sizes, and also have features such as foldable frames, extra layers to boost them closer to real-bed height, and valves for accelerated deflation.

Bed Frames

Sold with most mattress sets for about $50, metal bed frames serve several functions. They boost the mattress and box spring to a height more comfortable for easing into bed, creating storage space under the bed in the process. They also have casters, which make moving the bed easier. And finally, the bed frame can support a separate headboard, which attaches to the head end of the frame.

Designed to perform as both a sitting and sleeping spot, futon beds are popular in multifunction spaces such as guest rooms and dorms.

Perfect for small spaces, most futons are full- or queen-size.

Murphy/Wall Beds

Named for its inventor, William Lawrence Murphy, this bed tilts up and disappears into a closet or wall cupboard. Murphy designed the bed more than a century ago in the tight confines of his San Francisco apartment. The bed can turn any room into a bedroom, because the mattress hides away in the day, then drops down at night thanks to a special hinge.

Platform Beds

Simple and sleek, platform beds eliminate some of the layers and extra furniture of a typical bed-and-mattress scenario. Usually made from wood in a contemporary style, a platform bed elevates the mattress off the floor and is designed to hold just the mattress without a box spring. Fewer layers make for a streamlined look in the bedroom. The platform bed may have additional built-in features, such as storage drawers or cubbies, lighting, and nightstands.

Poster Beds

The poster bed is a traditional and historical style of bed. It was developed when bedrooms were voluminous, cold spaces, and sleepers needed curtains for privacy and draft control. Four posts extend upward from the corners of the bed and hold aloft a frame for hanging bed curtains. Today's poster beds may or may not have the frame or bed curtains draped from it. Many poster beds simply feature the four elegant wood posts, which may be simple in design or intricately carved, depending on the style of the bed.

Waterbed Frames

A waterbed is a distinct type of bed that uses a water-filled mattress. The frame has high padded sides to contain the ballooning sides of the mattress. The base of the bed is very sturdy and ample, because the weight of the mattress is considerable.

Purchase Considerations

Purchase Considerations

Whether you are picking a new bed for your own bedroom, a child's room, or a guest space, you'll have to consider the size of the room and the sleeper's needs. Will your ceiling height accommodate the posts on the poster bed you have your eye on? Does your son have lots of friends sleep over and need extra sleeping spots? These are the kinds of questions we'll help you ask and answer on the way to purchasing the right bed.

Air Beds

With extra features come extra costs, but they may be worth it. For example, electric pumps work much more quickly than manual pumps. Covers that have memory foam or flocking, a fuzzy textured top, prevent the squeaky noises that come from sleeping on smooth vinyl. Does the ability to control the firmness of the mattress matter? Some air beds are equipped with valves the sleeper can adjust. And finally, does the sleeper have limited mobility? Grandma and Grandpa will likely be more comfortable on a double-high mattress that comes close to real-bed height. Before you purchase an air bed, check to see if it includes a pump and a storage case, which are nice basic features.

Bed Frames

Sturdiness is key with a bed frame, which is charged with supporting a heavy box-spring-and-mattress set. Make sure the casters are large and up to the job of moving the mattress set. And if carrying a bed frame up to a third-floor space is necessary, look for one that folds or comes apart into manageable pieces.

Canopy Beds

When you buy a canopy bed, take note of your ceiling height and any ceiling features such as molding, beams, or fans. The bed might fit, but make sure there are several inches to spare so it doesn't look crammed in. Work around or remove the ceiling fan if you have one. And make sure the canopy frame lets you easily remove the canopy or curtains for washing.

Captain's Beds

Check the construction of both pieces of furniture a captain's bed is meant to combine: the bed and the dresser. Is the bed frame well made and sturdy? Do the drawers underneath slide out easily and accommodate your clothes and bedding?

Cribs

Safety is the main concern when purchasing a crib. Over the years, standards have been written and revised to make these beds as safe as possible. It's important to buy the bed from a reputable retailer. Please read our separate buying guide for more information and considerations specific to cribs.

Daybeds

To turn a daybed into a proper and comfortable sofa, you'll need to prop it with several pillows and bolsters, which are cylinder-shape pillows. Pick large, supportive, cushionlike pillows to fill out the depth of the bed and serve as a backrest. These pillows will have to be removed at night to make room for sleeping.

Folding Beds

When you purchase a folding bed, you are likely purchasing the storage furniture as well. Check that the mechanism and hinges used in folding and unfolding the mattress are sturdy and strong.

Futon Beds

For hygiene and to prolong the longevity of your futon mattress, purchase a removable and washable cover. Also test the mechanism that raises and lowers half of the bed to turn it into a sofa. The mechanism should be easy to operate and durable enough for the frequent wear and tear it will receive.

Headboards

Some headboards come with bed frames, and some are sold separately but intended to mount to a metal bed frame you already have. In the second case, check the mounting instructions to make sure you have the hardware and tools needed to secure the headboard in place.

Iron Beds

A low-maintenance and sturdy bed style, an iron bed is meant to last for the ages. Check the finish for consistency. Painted metal beds can get scratched, so purchase a small bottle of touch-up paint if possible. If you are purchasing a brass bed, which tends to tarnish, make sure you know how to clean and polish it.

Loft Beds

Safety is key with a loft bed. Make sure the joints don't wobble loosely, the hardware tightens securely, and the crossbars that support the mattress are spaced no more than 6 inches apart. If the bedroom has a ceiling fan, you'll need to position the bed far away from it or remove the fan entirely. Finally, consider what other function you want to gain by elevating the mattress. If you need study space, for example, place a desk underneath.

Low-Profile Beds

Since you are doing away with the box spring, make sure the bed will firmly support your mattress.

Murphy/Wall Beds

With a Murphy bed, the mattress is attached to a bed frame that has springs. You can purchase the mattress directly from the manufacturer, or buy one yourself that exactly fits the specifications of the wall cabinet and bed frame. Measure carefully to ensure that the wall cabinet will fit your space and that the bed, when dropped down for sleeping, will fit in the room.

Platform Beds

The sleek look of a platform bed is appealing in a modern-style bedroom. Choose furniture, lighting, and linens with complementary contemporary designs.

Poster Beds

Because poster beds take up a lot of vertical space in a room, you'll need to be sure your bedroom can accommodate not just the assembled bed (is the ceiling high enough for the posts?), but the assembly process as well, since the bed will need to be erected in the room.

Rollaway Beds

If you desire a comfortable extra bed that is about the size of a twin mattress, a rollaway might be for you. You simply need the storage space when it's not in use. The folded bed is not as compact as a deflated air bed, and it doesn't slide under a bed the way a trundle does. It stores best in a closet with a cover to keep off dust.

Sleigh Beds

These beds can be painted or stained in a variety of finishes, so be sure to check the quality of the finish. And the overall proportions of a sleigh bed can vary widely from one style to another, so take stock of the measurements on the showroom floor, then make sure your bedroom can accommodate it.

Storage Beds

Before you shop for a storage bed, take stock of the specific items you want to store. If it's extra bedding, for example, measure the folded comforter. Then use the measurements to determine what kind of drawer, cubby, or shelf unit you need in the bed.

Toddler Beds

As with any child's product, take note of recall information about the toddler bed you are considering. Then assess its overall safety: Is the paint finish lead-free? Are there extra pieces that could break off and become choking hazards? Is the bed low to the floor so your son or daughter won't get injured from a fall? Finally, you'll have to purchase special bedding for the toddler-size mattress, which you can find at specialty children's retailers.

Trundle Beds

Access to the trundle bed is the most important consideration before purchasing one. If the two beds are not sold as a set, will your regular bed accommodate the trundle underneath? Does the trundle slide out easily on hefty, stable casters? Are you sliding it over carpet or an area rug, which may hinder it?

Waterbed Frames

When you purchase a waterbed, you'll need to consider its weight and girth. These beds are not good in temporary living situations, because they are heavy and difficult to install. Also, you need an adequate source of water close to the bed for filling and refilling, as needed.
