In the past beds have been made from very simple materials, babies have slept in dresser drawers and adults have slept in beds made from straw and hay. We have so many kinds of beds now that it might be a little overwhelming unless you know exactly what you’re looking for. There are day beds, trundle beds, Murphy beds, sleigh beds, bunk beds, baby beds, toddler beds, youth beds, twin beds, full size, queen size, king size and water beds. Some beds are just made of wood in the shape of a box for sturdiness. If you have ever been on vacation, the beds in the hotel rooms are made like this.

The beds we have today are made from an abundance of materials such as, steel, wrought iron, plastic, wood, just to name a few. There have been carpenters commissioned for the construction and the carving of the marriage bed or baby cradle. These carpenters get paid enormous amount of money to adorn the beds in question with the family crests or the names of the owners. Not all carpenters do just that, some have created actual works of art on a single piece of furniture.

The beds we have for the average consumers are a little more simplistic, though just as beautiful. Some beds are as simple as 1, 2, 3, you by it put it together and there you have it a beautifully constructed bed. The beds that come from the furniture stores are already assembled and delivered for you. Most stores deliver for free, but the ones who don’t will charge a small fee for delivery and assembly. Wood beds come in an array of colors and stains to match your style and décor. Some beds are enormous and reach the ceiling while others just have a simple rail system. Whatever your style the nearest furniture store will have a style to meet your expectations.
