Think about your Interior Style

If it’s time to decorate, you’ll want your new bed to slot into your interior style. Whether you’re into country-style chic or modern minimalism, consider how your new bed will work with your decor.

Luckily, you have a wide range of different styles to choose from at Cuckooland. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

Traditional or Vintage Style Bed

When you’d rather keep things classic, stick to timeless wooden frames. With dark or polished wood, you create a vintage antique-style vibe that’s oh-so-sophisticated.

For a real vintage throwback, consider a four-poster wooden bed. Not only will this give you that old-fashioned feel, but it’ll make your space look striking and unique.

The Beatnik four-poster bed (below) is perfect for capturing the traditional style. This bed contrasts classic ornate details with sharp angles for a modern twist. And with a matching bedside table (below right), you can really set the vintage tone in your bedroom.

Industrial or Modern Style Bed

Rather give your space a more contemporary edge? Then think metal, minimal, and modern.

If that sounds up your street, then look no further than the metal four poster bed by Woood (below). With its black finish and metal structure, this bed gives a modern twist to the classic four-poster design.

There’s no fussy design or details. Just striking angles and stripped-back design – it’s perfect for lovers of minimalism.

So if you’d like to make a modern statement in your bedroom, this bed is sure to

Chic Luxury Style Bed

If you’re a fan of the finer things in life, you might be after a luxury style bed – think upholstered velvet and extravagant design.

With that in mind, you’ll love the Lucinda ottoman bed by Flair Furnishings (below). From its scroll design to its button details, every inch of this bed oozes luxury. And thanks to its padded headboard, you can sit back and relax in total comfort.

Plus, you can even keep your boudoir free from unsightly clutter with the handy built-in ottoman. Simply lift up the mattress to reveal ample storage inside.

Consider your Storage Needs

You might be searching for a new bed to save on space or reduce clutter. Whether you can’t move for clothes or you need to free up more floor space, consider a bed with storage.

Here at Cuckooland, we have plenty of storage beds for you to choose from. So whether you choose a bed with a built-in ottoman or an under-bed storage drawer, you can make more space for the things that matter.

When it comes to storage options, Vox has you covered. Take a look at the Vox 4 You raised mattress bed (below). With both under bed storage boxes and raised mattress function, you can stash clutter both underneath and inside your bed.

You can keep bulky spare bedding inside the bed, and display your books and trinkets in the boxes underneath. And if you need even more storage space, take a look at the matching Vox 4 You bedside table (below right).

Alternatively, the Vox 4 You four-poster is packed with built-in shelving and storage. You can say goodbye to bedside tables – with this bed, you can keep everything you need within reaching distance. With an enclosed storage space behind the headboard and a shelving unit above, there’s ample space for your bedside essentials.

Choose the Right Size Bed

You might think that a standard double bed is a go-to option. However, at Cuckooland, you can choose from plenty of beds in a range of different sizes.

So, whether you want to stretch out in a king or save space with a small double, consider which size bed suits you best:

King or Super King Size

A king size bed is ideal if you have a larger bedroom or enjoy lazy Sundays stretching out in bed.

And if you’d really like to treat yourself, go one step further with a super king size bed. At a whopping 6ft wide, you’ll have heaps of space to snuggle up after a long day. Plus, it’s perfect for those big family snuggles in the morning!

Small Double Size

At 4ft wide, small doubles are perfect for solo sleepers who like to stretch out, or couples who’d rather save on bedroom space. It’s also a good option for teens who are growing out of their childhood bed and ready for something bigger.

The Vox nature bed (below) is a small double that oozes Scandinavian style. The simple design and unfinished wood creates a stripped-back look that’s effortlessly cool. Rather go bigger? With the option to choose from four different sizes, you can upgrade to a full double or king size.

Team it with the matching bedside table (below right) for a stylish way to display your bedtime essentials.

Single Size

At a slimmer 3ft wide, a single bed is designed for solo sleepers who’d rather save space. A single bed takes up less floor space – allowing you to free up more room for other furniture, like a desk or wardrobe.

And at Cuckooland, there’s no need to choose between size or style. With a wide range of single beds, you can make a big statement with a smaller bed.

The single four poster bed by Woood (below) is ideal if you’re after something a little different. It’s all the style of a four poster, packed into slimmer and more efficient dimensions.
