What type of beds are there?
Each bed has its own size, style and type so it’s important to choose the right one for you. Here’s some of the most popular ones:
TV beds come with televisions at the foot-end of the bed, making them perfect for duvet days and lazy Sundays.
Need more storage space? Divan beds have integrated storage drawers in the base of the bed – choose from divans with 1, 2 or even 2 + 2 drawers. Ottoman beds are more discreet and come with hidden storage compartments under the mattress. Lift the mattress up to uncover a space for storing clothes, shoes and seasonal bedding.
If you struggle with back pain, an adjustable bed offers customised support at the touch of a button. Perfect for older couples who like to share a bed.
For kids, bunk beds are ideal for siblings who share a room. Cabin beds come with the choice of add-on furniture while trundle beds come with an additional pull-out bed, perfect for sleepovers.
If you need space for a guest or overnight visitor, sofa beds are versatile and adaptable and transform from sofa to bed in seconds.

How to choose the right size bed?
The right size bed depends on your age, size and personal preference, as well as floor space. If you share a bed with a partner, double beds are recommended as a minimum. If you prefer to spread out, king size beds offer the luxury of extra sleep space, while super king beds are our largest and most generous offering. For adult solo sleepers, double beds provide enough room for you to spread out comfortably. Buying a bed for a child? Small single beds are suited for younger children while single beds will see older children through from adolescence to adulthood. Alternatively, small double beds are perfect for smaller bedrooms where floor space is a premium.

Ottoman beds have hidden storage compartments under the mattress – simply lift the mattress to reveal plenty of room for all your storage needs. Some of our TV beds come with ottoman storage space too, as well as compartments for media devices and game consoles.
