The Pros of Upholstered Beds


  1. Luxurious Good Looks – If you want to inject some luxury into your bedroom then an upholstered bed is the perfect solution. For full on opulence then a velvet bed might be just the ticket. Or if you prefer a more laid back vibe then one of our woven or herringbone fabrics might be more suitable.

  2. Makes A Statement – Without a doubt, an upholstered bed is the perfect piece for making a statement. Indeed, if you want a show stopper of a bed then these beds have to be at the forefront for consideration.

  3. Wide Arrange Of Colours – If you love to play with colour then a fabric bed could be a real asset. Available in nearly every colour of the rainbow your choice is almost limitless.

  4. Customisable- Not only can you pick the colour you want your bed to be but a large amount of our fabric beds are available with storage options too. Therefore, if you are looking for extra squireling space then these beds are the top of their game!

  5. Comfortable – If you like to read in bed or even watch TV then an upholstered bed is a great option in terms of comfort.

The Cons of Upholstered Beds


  1. Extra Cleaning – Fabric beds do tend to require more cleaning than a wooden or metal bed. Fabric tends to attract dust more easily therefore you will need to commit to hovering on a regular basis

  2. Problem Pets – Unfortunately some pets may cause problems with an upholstered bed. Whilst this isn't a given, cats in particular may damage fabric beds if you have an open door policy

  3. Could Contribute To Allergies – If you've got a dust allergy then these beds may not be ideal. As previously discussed, fabric tends to attract dust more easily and therefore may contributes to allergies.
