You only have to scroll through the feeds of interior influencers on Instagram just to see how bang on trend they are. However, if you’ve just started your search for the perfect bed then you might want to know what the pros and cons of fabric beds are. Here we will outline the pros and cons of fabric beds so can make an informed decision before you splash the cash! To have a gander at all our fabric beds just clickhere.
Insta Worthy Good Looks – If you want a bed that knows how to pack a punch in the looks department then you can’t go wrong with a fabric bed. When it comes to stealing the bedroom floor our fabric beds come up trumps. What more, fabric beds are a great way of upgrading your bedroom to a luxurious retreat. We’re thinking spa like hotel room here!
Injection Of Colour – A fabric bed is a fabulous way of introducing some colour into your bedroom. Whether you want a cool sophisticated grey or an opulent navy blue, our fabric beds give dulux colour charts a run for their money.
Choice of Fabrics – Our fabric beds come in an impressive range of fabrics. For example, if you’re trying to create a luxurious boudoir then a velvet could be the perfect choice. Or if you want your bedroom to channel a more organic vibe then you could select one of our weaves or herringbone fabrics.
Optional Storage – A large selection of our fabric beds can also be customised with added storage. Now we've got your attention! Indeed, many of us are in desperate need of extra storage in our bedrooms. Therefore, it makes perfect sense to utilise the space beneath your bed. We offer two types of storage. Firstly, you can choose to have either 2 or 4 drawers, which is perfect if you just need that extra bit of wiggle room. However, if you’re greedy for all the storage you can get then an ottoman bed could be just what you need. This is because these beds offer up to four times the amount of storage as a four-drawer divan. If you're interested in the benefits of ottoman beds, you can read more about them here.
Super Comfortable – If you like to spend your chill out time relaxing in bed and watching TV or reading then you won’t get a more comfortable bed than a fabric one. Sleigh beds are particularly ideal if you have a tendency to sit up in bed as they are more supportive for your back. Plus they make you feel pretty regal!
Extra Upkeep – One of the drawbacks of fabric beds is that they do require more upkeep than a wooden or metal bed. This is because fabric does attract more dust than harder surfaces. Ideally you should hoover and wipe down your frame about once a week.
Could Heighten Allergies – As fabric attracts more dust you could find your allergies being triggered if you're a sufferer. Some fabrics are worse offenders than other. For example, velvet will attract more dust than a tightly woven fabric. Therefore, if you can’t resist the look of fabric then consider your options carefully. You don’t want to be taking an antihistamine every time you hit the sack!
Furry Friends Could Damage Your Bed – If you have a fur baby and they like to have a good scratch then it is possible that they may damage your fabric bed. After all, fabric beds look like a pretty good scratching pole to our four-legged friends. Obviously, only you know your pets behaviour and whether this could be a potential problem.
