If you have only just seen a sleigh bed for the very first time and you have got an eye for beauty and comfort then you will know that this style of bed could be perfect for you. If you have already decided that this type of bed is just for you there are some things for you to think about before going to the store. Thankfully all of the information you need is online and free, plus if you like shopping online you will be able to buy your bed on the internet as well.
One thing is that there are so many look that you can create using sleigh beds. If you want to create a nice airy look you could go for a light colored wood like maple, or if you want something a little bit darker you might want to consider cedar or something along those lines. If you want to go for a really modern look then a metal sleigh bed might be right for you. There are also copies of antique styles available with really ornate decorating and carving on the head and foot boards.
One great look to consider is upholstered headboards, though not in all styles. There are quite a few manufacturers that create these beds using Italian leather and oak, with lovely padded head and foot boards, but they will normally cost over $2,000. If you add a memory foam mattress on top of this, which will cost about $1,000 these are expensive beds. But beds like these are going to last for many, many years and if they are well cared for can actually increase in value.
There are hundreds of different combinations of metals, woods, coverings, decorations and so on for these beds, so you are not going to have much trouble finding a bed that is going to match the décor of your home and also at a price that you are able to afford.
