What Do You Mean By A Sleigh Bed?
The term sleigh bed refers to a classic and elegant bed design with curved head and footboards that mimic the design of an old world sleigh. Sleigh bed designs were originally crafted during the early years of the 19th century in France. The beds were designed as a comfortable child’s bed or a day bed for adults. Classic sleigh bed designs have a high headboard and a slightly lower footboard which adds a cozy feel.
Sleigh bed frames can curve either inward or outward but these days outward curves are the most popular. They are also safer and more comfortable. Outward curved beds not only offer more space to the sleeper, but also reduce the chance of bumping your head against the bed frame.
Choosing a Sleigh Bed
Today's sleigh beds are available in a wide variety of materials and sizes. While classic wood sleigh beds are the best choice for traditional bedroom décor, you can also find metal sleigh bed frames for contemporary or modern décor themes.
Decide between various woods or metal finishes when choosing a sleigh bed for your home. Maple, oak and walnut wood finishes ensure you find the perfect shade for your sleigh bed. Choose dark wood finishes if you have are going for a dramatic look.
A king or queen sleigh bed is a wonderfully elegant and spacious choice for a master bedroom. Choose either a full or twin sleigh bed for the guest room or a teenager’s bedroom.
Consider a sleigh bed with built-in storage. It is a wonderful choice for a compact home. Choose a metal sleigh bed frame with built-in storage space for small urban homes like a condo or loft.
Sleigh beds also offer different upholstery options. A leather sleigh bed is a wonderful choice for a bachelor’s pad. Choose floral or paisley fabric upholstery for a more feminine décor theme.
Accessorizing Your Sleigh Bed
Choose bed linen and pillow cases in a color that complements your sleigh bed color. Decorative pillows and throws are a great way to add interesting accents to your sleigh bed.
Choose suede or chenille decorative pillows for a stylish and chic bedroom décor theme, while cotton or lace pillow work well with a country bedroom décor.
You can go for a contrasting duvet or comforter to add further color to your bedding décor. Patchwork quilts are a great choice for a traditional country décor theme. Use interesting ethnic designs to give a sophisticated, trendy look to your bedroom. Experiment with bold colors and patterns like zebra stripes or tribal patterns for your comforters. Add a complementing area rug to complete the bedroom décor.

Would like to comment on two separate aspects - the product itself and the shopping experience. First, this is a beautiful bedfr
ame with simple lines, yet has a slight oriental flare. Has a masculine appearance yet can be elegant based on how the room is accessorized. The quality for the price is perfect. No complaints whatsoever.
Stumbled upon this bedframe while looking online. Decided to take a chance and place an order. The process was simple. I even offered a lower amount, which was accepted. The bed arrived as expected. It was on time and delivered right to my door. Very glad I took a chance!

South Shore Maddox Full / Queen Storage Platform Bed Frame Only in Pure White Finish
- Shopper in
We purchased this bed as part of a total room makeover for our daughter's 13th birthday. We were doing her room in a Japanese s
tyle and wanted a platform bed. We chose this one for the price and for the added storage with the drawers under the bed. The bed was shipped when we expected. After spending an entire day clearing out her room, ripping up carpet, repainting, moving furniture, and a million other jobs, we finally got to put the bed together in the middle of the night while totally exhausted. And by "we," I mean my husband. He hates to assemble things at the best of times, so we were fully prepared for this bed to cause all kinds of problems. However, I think he got it put together without uttering a single foul word! It's been over three months, and our daughter still loves the bed. The drawers work great and the bed looks fantastic with the style of her room. It seems to be holding up just fine, but of course, she's past that rough and tumble, jump on the bed phase. This is only 4 stars simply because I think it isn't the highest quality, top-notch bed. But, we were very happy with what we got considering the price.
