Drift Off In Style This Bed Month: Our Favourite Frames For A Great Night's Sleep
March: the month of pancake day, snowdrops, leaving winter behind, and beds.
No, you didn’t misread that last word, March is officially bed month! Organised by the Sleep Council, the goal of bed month is to bring awareness to how our kip affects our waking hours.
Sleep deprivation can lead to a lack of focus, memory problems and even accidents. That might seem like an exaggeration, but 20% of road deaths are caused by fatigue. Bed month is a great time to wonder how to improve your sleep schedule, but what’s the answer?
We think that the best way to get a better night’s sleep is to have a great place to do it. In this week's blog, we’re going through some of our cosiest and comfiest bed frames. If you’ve been meaning to snatch forty winks, and fancy a fabulous deal on the most luxurious British mattresses, scroll on.
Drift Off With Scandi Vibes
Scandi Style has undoubtedly been the biggest home decor trend we’ve seen in years.
Characterised by clean lines and uncomplicated designs, Scandi Style bedrooms ooze a modern feel that uses minimalism to give a calming atmosphere. However, the idea behind the home decor inspo makes it ideal for sleeping. The trend uses “Hygge” as its main definition, a Danish and Norwegian word that embodies all things cosy and warm.
The Bentley Designs Brunel Scandi Oak Bedstead screams Scandinavian style, with contemporary lines and a pale oak finish. The grey headboard contrasts the light scandi oak, and the whole frame is a fabulous addition to your nighttime routine.
Or, why not keep the hygge vibe but with a twist? Cabin style is another way to give your bedroom a warmer feel. The Bentley Designs Riva Rustic Oak Panel Bedstead uses rugged oak veneers in a chevron pattern for a stylish bed you won’t want to leave in the morning.
Treat Yourself To Old School Luxury
Who hasn’t dreamt of a sumptuous four-poster bed?
The epitome of old-time glamour, four-poster beds have graced only the most stylish rooms and everywhere from palaces to film screens. Gorgeously gothic, you might think they’re a little dramatic for getting your eight hours, but there’s an alternative. The Frank Hudson Boho Boutique Four-Poster Bed. This frame keeps the relaxing yet lavish feel four-posters are known for, but with a look that’s less Hogwarts and more home decor inspiration.
Constructed from striking dark mango wood and teak, this frame breathes new life into an old-fashioned favourite. The headboard features a unique patterned frieze of blind fret work that gives the whole bed another stand-out characteristic.
If you prefer to decorate with slightly brighter shades, not to worry. The Frank Hudson Boho Retreat 4 Poster Bed uses a warmer toned wood for a versatile feel that fits right into any home decor.
Sleep In Style, Wherever You Want
Who says sleeping is just for bedrooms?
We get it, sometimes your own bed just isn’t an option. Whether you have guests and not enough bedrooms to go around, want to make the most of your space or just want another place to get some shut-eye, you need other choices. We aren’t usually advocating for snoozing on the sofa, however, the Kyoto range of Sofa Beds is a great exception.
Bold colours and chic and contemporary designs, these sofa beds deserve a place in any home. These sofas feature an attention-grabbing palette with distinctive upholstery and can be effortlessly converted into a double bed.
The Kyoto Lux sofa bed is furnished with a magnificent mid-century burnt orange and sits on modern metal pin legs. We love this sofa bed as a striking splash of colour, and the plus side of fashion and function in one package makes it a must-have.
Give Your Little Ones A Great Lie-In
Your kids need a good night's rest too
Kids between the ages of five and eleven need at least ten to eleven hours of sleep to function well and help their growing brains. So, why settle for a less comfortable bed frame? Here at Taylor’s on the High Street, we’ve recently expanded our range of beds for kids, and with heaps of options available, you’re sure to find a frame they won’t avoid when it comes to bedtime.
We absolutely love the Julian Bowen Aurora High Sleeper and we guarantee your kids will too. Positively overflowing with space, this bed is the perfect getaway for older children and teens. With a pull-out desk for homework, wardrobe space, shelving and a full-length mirror, this frame has everything a kid needs.
If you have little ones that are making the jump to a more grown-up bed, then the Julia Bowen Maine Bookcase Bed is perfect. With a built-in shelf that keeps bedtime storybooks or night lights close to hand, this frame is an ideal bed for younger children.
Make The Most Of Your Mattress
What you sleep on makes all the difference
When it comes to drifting off comfortably, a great mattress can make or break your sleep schedule. We’ve all been there, tossing and turning on a lumpy old mattress and hoping it magically gets softer. There’s nothing like the sumptuous feel of a hotel bed, but what if you could bring the experience home?
Hypnos beds pride themselves on making the most comfortable beds in the UK, and with a client list like theirs, it’s not too hard to believe. They supply their handcrafted mattresses to luxury hotels all across the country as well as furnishing Buckingham Palace. That’s right, you can quite literally sleep like a Queen.
Even better, in honour of bed month, we’re offering a fabulous deal on the best night's sleep you’ll ever have. We’re giving you a King Size mattress for the same cost as a Double, so you can stretch out like royalty. Worried about your old mattress?
