5 Things To Consider Before Buying A Bespoke Bed

A bespoke bed, like any luxury item, is a big investment. As such, it’s important that you do your research to ensure that the bed you buy will meet your needs and last for years to come. Here are some things to consider before buying.

Learn Your Sizing

The first thing to do before purchasing a bespoke bed is to learn your sizing. This will help you know what size of mattress you need, as well as how long the bed should be.

Bed sizes are measured by width, length and height:

  • Width – this is the measurement from headboard to footboard. If you want two people to sleep comfortably in one bed then make sure it’s at least 2 feet wider than either person’s shoulders when lying down on their side (i.e., if someone has 20 inch shoulders then get a 22-24 inch wide mattress). If they’re both small people then even more space might be needed!
  • Length – this refers to how long your mattress will be once it has been installed onto its base (the wooden frame). Again, consider whether there will be two people sleeping on this particular mattress or just one; if there are two then think about whether they’ll need separate spaces within which could mean adding extra inches onto each side so that each person can stretch out without encroaching upon another person’s space too much!

Consider Your Room Setup

How big is your room? If you have a large room, a king size bed might fit. However, if you have a small room and want to fit in a king size bed, it may not work out as well. Make sure that there’s enough space for the bed before purchasing one!

Consider whether or not there are any other furniture items that could affect how much space is available for your bespoke bed design – such as wardrobes and desks.

Be Clear On The Style You Want To Buy

Before you start looking at beds, make sure you know what style of bed you want. If your room is small and cozy, a four-poster with ornate carvings might not be ideal. If it’s large and airy with lots of windows, perhaps the style should match this feeling by being modern or minimalist in design.

Consider how much light comes into the room; if there isn’t much natural light (or if there’s too much), then consider getting blackout curtains or blinds for privacy purposes. You also have to consider what type of home decorating style fits best with your chosen bed frame: modern? Traditional? Contemporary? Modernist? Eclectic? Rustic? Midcentury Modern–or something else entirely!

If possible, find an example photo online that shows off these elements so that when searching for a new piece or two from this category (such as lamps), they’ll complement each other nicely instead of looking out-of-place together because one thing was chosen over another simply due its cost being less expensive than its competitor’s price tag alone.

Understand Your Budget

Before you begin shopping, it’s important to understand your budget. The bed should be comfortable and stylish, but it also needs to fit into your financial situation. You can choose a basic model that will meet all of your needs at an affordable price point or splurge on something more luxurious–it’s up to you!

In general, people just want their beds (and themselves) to be happy and healthy. If this sounds like something that appeals to you as well, then we recommend buying yourself a bespoke bed made with high-quality materials from an established company.

Make Sure You Do Your Research

You’ve got to do your research. You need to be sure that you’re getting exactly what you want, so it’s important to learn about the different types of beds and materials before making a purchase.

What type of bed do I want? There are many choices available when it comes to bed design: from four-poster beds with canopy curtains, through sleigh beds with intricately carved headboards and footboards, right up until contemporary minimalism where all that matters is comfort (and possibly storage).

What material should my bespoke bed be made from? The choice here depends on what kind of look or feel you’re going for – whether it’s traditional wooden furniture or modern metal frames; soft cotton sheets or crisp linen ones; there are lots of options available depending on how much thought has gone into its design.

Who makes the best bespoke beds? It’s worth considering who manufactures each type of bespoke piece as well as where they’re manufactured – sometimes this can affect both price point and quality control standards so make sure you do some research before committing yourself fully!

A Bespoke Bed Is A Big Purchase So Make Sure You’re Happy With It Before You Commit.

Before you decide to buy a bespoke bed, make sure you’re happy with it. Don’t rush into buying a bed just because it looks good in your bedroom or because it’s on sale.

A good way to test out whether or not the bed is right for you is by sleeping on it for a few nights – if possible try sleeping on the actual mattress rather than just sitting on top of it (this will give more accurate results). If possible, do this before committing yourself financially!


Buying a bespoke bed is a big decision. There’s a lot of things to consider, so make sure you do your research and choose carefully. When it comes down to it, though, one thing that we can all agree on is that the most important thing when buying any bed is making sure you’re happy with it!
