You should also consider buying a new bed frame to go along with it. There are so many kinds of beds out there that would work well with your new mattress.

In fact, there are so many types of beds that you might struggle to choose a bed that you like best. You should definitely take the time to learn about the various kind of bed styles, prior to beginning your search. 

“Here are nine kinds of beds that you can use to spice up your bedroom. Educating yourself about them will make choosing a bed so much easier than it would be otherwise.”

  1. Platform Bed

When you buy a new mattress for your bedroom, you’ll usually have to buy a new box spring to go with it. That is, you’ll have to buy a box spring if you choose not to go with a platform bed.

Platform beds allow people to put their mattresses right on top of their bed frames. This makes them much lower to the ground than they would be otherwise.

You can save money by not having to buy a box spring when you purchase a platform bed. You can also make a room with low ceilings feel better with a platform bed.

  1. Open-Frame Bed

If you want to add a touch of class and elegance to your bedroom, an open-frame bed will help you do it. These kinds of beds have headboards and footboards that don’t have any upholstery on them, which makes them see-through.

Oftentimes, these beds are made out of wrought iron or some other kind of metal. But you can get them in almost any material you want so that they fit the look and feel of your bedroom space.

  1. Canopy Bed

Canopy beds are obviously not going to be for everyone. You need to have a certain personality and a certain style to pull a canopy bed off.

But if your goal is to inject some drama into your bedroom, you can’t go wrong with a canopy bed. It’ll give you the option to hang luxurious drapes around it to enhance the overall appearance of your bedroom.

  1. Captain’s Bed

Do you have a bedroom that’s on the smaller side? If you do, you might not have enough room for a big bed and a big dresser to hold all your clothes.

So why not combine the two by going with a captain’s bed? It’s a perennial favorite among those who want to add a ton of storage space to their bedroom without sacrificing what little space they might have overall.

A captain’s bed style allows your bed to sit on top of drawers so that it can be used to store clothes or other personal items. They’re an excellent option for anyone who doesn’t have a lot of extra square footage to spare in their bedroom.

  1. Loft Bed

If you like the idea of saving space in your bedroom, a loft bed would be another good bed for you. Loft beds sit several feet off the ground and allow people to stick things like dressers, desks, and more under them.

Some grown-ups might have an issue with sleeping so far off the ground, especially if they tend to wake up a lot in the middle of the night. But if you don’t mind sleeping up, on a loft bed, it’s a great way to save space in your room.

  1. Adjustable Bed

Wouldn’t it be awesome if you could somehow adjust your bed so that you could do everything from watching TV to reading to sleeping in a different position? It would be the most comfortable bed ever, right?

Well, if that sounds good to you, then an adjustable bed might be an incredible fit for you. You can put an adjustable bed up and down as you please to increase your comfort level.

  1. Daybed

Daybeds are like the Swiss Army knives of beds. Depending on how you use them, they can serve as beds, sofas, and even chaise lounges throughout the course of the day or night.


Think of them as much classier versions of futons. They’ll serve several different purposes when you put them in your bedroom without taking up too much space in the process.

  1. Sleigh Bed

Sleigh beds are called sleigh beds because—you guessed it!—they look a little bit like sleighs. They have large curved headboards with curved footboards to match.

Of all the kinds of beds listed here, sleigh beds are typically the biggest of the bunch. You’re going to need to have plenty of space in your bedroom to fit one in it.

But as long as you have the extra space, you’ll love what a strong statement a sleigh bed makes. It’ll set the tone for your bedroom and make it look amazing.

  1. Murphy Bed

Do you wish there was a way that you could make your bed disappear during the day when you weren’t using it? It would free up so much space in your bedroom for you to do other things.

Believe it or not, it’s possible with a murphy bed. Murphy beds fold down into beds when you need them to sleep at night and fold up into the wall in the morning to get them out of the way.

A Murphy bed might not be ideal for your master bedroom. But they’ve become very popular for those searching for beds for guest bedrooms.
