1. Think of the Room’s Height

Pino White Four Poster Double Bed/em>

You may want to maximise the vertical space of your bedroom and select a luxurious four poster double bed for truly romantic moments.

We’ve designed the Pino double bed with gorgeous good looks – so you can recline in style.

Whimsical or statement, you can dress this lavish Scandinavian Pine bed frame with a canopy (available to purchase separately).

It’s finished with a white lacquer finish so it’ll be welcomed into a range of different bedroom styles/colourways.

Enhancing a range of room themes, we think it’ll fit seamlessly in with botanical, nautical or Scandi decor.

2. Is Storage an Issue?

Whether you’re looking to slumber in a European Small Double or European King size bed – one thing is for certain …

The Vox 4you bed has oodles of storage room to house – or hide – your prized possessions.

Achieving ‘the look’ of white painted wood, this beautiful bed has a place for everything.

Marvel at the shelving compartments around the sides of this contemporary bed – brimming with storage possibilities. Here, optional inset oak-finish storage boxes (available to buy separately) will create a modern two-tone effect.

Suiting smaller rooms and homes, the ‘cherry on top’ has to be the lift-up mechanism that lets you store even more things underneath the raised mattress.

You’ll love it in Scandi chic, sporty teenager gamer/study bedrooms, floral rooms and many more – as your belongings will take your theme to the next level.

3. Buy a Wooden Bed that’ll Create a Mood

6. Factor in Your Wall Colours

When choosing a new wooden bed, you can create a truly stunning effect when you harmonise its finish with your feature wall’s emulsion.

Here, the Hambleden bed has been paired with a similarly dark wall shade (pictured) – to maximise the high-end mood of this bedroom. This beautiful ‘bed-wall’ combo is especially effective when your headboard has negative space or spindles, that lets the wall colour shine through.

Constructed from a tried and tested pairing of fine Solid Oak and veneers – aspiring interior designers can easily reproduce this stormy bed-wall colour effect with little effort.

Buying the Hambleden bed can be the first step towards creating a premium, Nordic vibe bedroom, whatever the season.

7. Do You Just Need the Headboard?

Already happy with your bed frame – or looking to add a stunning headboard to your existing bed base?

The Tortona headboard could be your chance to enjoy the look of an entire wooden bed without swapping out your existing frame. As its star feature, the gorgeous chevron inlay will delight you when it arrives – drawing admiring glances should you place one in the guest bedroom.

We’re loving the mix of European Oak, Oak veneers and MDF materials – the combination evokes images of Scandi styling and the traditional cabins of North America with their characterful chevron motifs.
