How to: Design your dream bed

Don't waste time daydreaming about the perfect bed when you could be creating it yourself.  The colour that would go perfectly with your newly painted walls. The headboard you just want to stroke. Let your imagination wander with our stunning choice of design styles, from lavish and glamorous, to cool and contemporary.


Our upholstered bed service offers unparalleled choice when it comes to luxury style and quality craftsmanship. So whether you've got a flair for creativity, or a staunch idea of what you like, our online Design Your Bed process allows you to create that one-of-a-kind forever piece you've always wanted.

There are all sorts of things to consider – from style to practicality, and making the most of your space. Let us guide you through the process and help you find the perfect bed:

Step one: THE DESIGN

Firstly, think about the style of bed you are after, maybe a high headboard? A button back? Or a foot end? Consider the architecture of the room, age of the house and your personal style.  We have a comprehensive range so you will be sure to find the perfect style to suit you and your home. All our beds are available as a classic bedstead, storage ottoman or a divan with various drawer options for some practical hidden storage.  

Step two: THE FABRIC

We offer a huge range of House & Designer fabrics, this season our edit of house fabric includes both textured weave and plush velvet. Available in a wide variation of delectable shades, we recommend you request up to six free samples to help decide on your colour scheme and style preference. 

Step three: THE SIZE

Measuring your room and working out how your beautifully designed bed will fit is the boring but essential part of the process. We suggest choosing the biggest size bed that your room can take - indulge in the luxury of a spacious bed if you can. It can be worth masking out the area your new bed will take up on the floor to give you an idea of how the dimensions will work in your room. Our advice: measure and then measure again…just to make sure! Oh and you should measure the doorways, hallways and stairs so that you know that it can be delivered safely to your room of choice.  


The legs of the bed can seem an insignificant detail but can make all the difference to the finished look, choose from four beautiful wood finishes to sit effortlessly in your scheme.


We think adding one of our lovely mattresses to complete your bespoke bed is a no-brainer. A mattress that is perfect for you is hands down the most important bedtime ingredient. It’s the difference between deep sleep and restlessness, between feeling refreshed and feeling sluggish all day.
