To make the bedding comfortable, you should select appropriate mattresses and pillows to match the style. Select bright coloured pillows, to get a fresh look. Foam pillows are more suitable if you usually sleep straight on your back, where as softer down pillow would be a better choice, if you have habit of sleeping on your stomach.
Choosing a bedstead or four-poster bed over a divan is a matter of style, as both allow the same mattress choice and can provide equivalent support. And So To Bed offers wooden, metal, painted, upholstered, leather and caned bedsteads; Simon Horn is known for traditional French styles; Feather & Black has a wide range of traditional and modern beds; and Beaudesert makes elegant four-posters. Bed Bazaar sells restored antique and period- style metal bedsteads, and its sister company, Sleeping Partners, makes mattresses to fit.
Latex has a long-standing reputation as an excellent material for mattresses because it is resilient and recovers its shape quickly. Dunlopillo has always been the leading supplier of latex mattresses and these now blend natural with synthetic latex. A latex mattress doesn't need turning and is naturally anti-allergenic.
Box beds are a Scottish oddity and are often found in cottages outside of the major metropolitan areas of Scotland. They consist of a wooden box big enough to hold a mattress, a roof, 4 sides and sliding panels. The term box in other countries is also sometimes used to describe a space saving bed that can fold up into a box.
Most beds in the 21st century consist of the bed frame and the mattress, with the mattress sitting on top of a solid base made of either a sprung base or wooden slats. Most modern beds also include the option of a headboard for resting against and medical beds can even include side rails and in some cases both types of beds also include footboards. Beds that have headboards also normally have bed skirts which double up as dust covers that both protect and hide the actual bed frame under the mattress.
