Give your Bedroom an Original Touch with a Round Bed
In this article, we’re going to tell you all about the round bed. Though this option might not be the most common choice, you might well have seen them in hotels or movies.
While you can find plenty of other pieces of round furniture and accessories in and around your home (mirrors, tables etc.) round beds definitely aren’t the most common option. However, we’re seeing more of these beds on the market, along with all the accessories that come with them: headboards, bedding, blankets…
With a round bed, your bedroom will take on a whole new look. So, if you’re looking to give your bedroom a makeover, a round bed might be just what you need.
The round bed – main features
Round beds are usually double beds, around 6.5 ft in diameter. Because of the shape, you can only really lie in the very middle, which is why they need to be fairly wide, and why you won’t find any single round beds – they would be almost impossible to sleep in.
You’ll also need to have a fairly large bedroom. Otherwise, they can be pretty overwhelming. Think about it: in every movie and hotel with a round bed, the bed is placed in the very center of the room. This will also help the room feel more spacious.
You can often get them tailor-made to help you make the most of the available space. These are exclusive and unique objects.
As for the height, you could go for a low structure that sits at floor level. Alternatively, you could opt for a taller bed with a hidden frame, that makes it look like it’s floating. Remember, some can even rotate, and sometimes you’ll even find a round base with a standard rectangular mattress.
Round beds: headboards
Yes, round beds can also have headboards. Some have corner headboards, which are ideal for smaller bedrooms. By moving your round bed into a corner, you’ll free up more space in the rest of the room.
However, you can also find headboards which mold to the shape of the bed. Some are detachable, allowing you to change their position if you need to. For example, if you’re reading in bed during the day, you’ll be able to move the headboard closer to the window.
Plus, you can also find them in all different styles. For example, you could buy a quilted headboard for a more classical style bedroom. Alternatively, you could just forget the headboard altogether, although your bed might not be quite so comfortable.
Some people hang a canopy above their beds, which makes these round beds look even more comfortable and welcoming.
Where to buy a round bed
On Amazon, you can find several examples of round beds, as well as bedding, which isn’t always easy to find. If you have one of the models with a round base and normal mattress, the standard size is 6 x 6.5 ft.
If you live in Europe, another option is Arredaclick, although their beds are usually more expensive compared to those you’ll find on Amazon, for example. In general, you’ll find bedding in a whole range of colors and materials. In some cases, you’ll also find beds with an integrated nightstand.
A few other options include Livingo and Archiexpo, where you’ll find beds in a whole range of modern and innovative designs. Finally, remember that you can also get them custom-made, although this is often a more complicated option.
As we’ve said before, circular furniture is really stylish, and round beds are no exception. If you’re looking for exclusive and innovative furniture for your bedroom, this is definitely an option to keep in mind (as long as you have enough space).
