What is a bedstead or bed frame?
Bedsteads, or bed frames, are the platform onto which you place a base and/or mattress. Usually a bedstead includes a headend, footend and something to connect them. It is possible to use a number of systems to place the mattress onto the bed frame. Often some sort of slat system is used, whether it be sprung slats or flat slats. All bed frames that we sell include a sprung slatted base system.

Do metal beds squeak?
Properly made and assembled metal beds should not squeak. If you buy a bed frame from a reputed retailer or manufacturer squeaking is not something you should worry about. If the bed does squeak right out of the box or starts to squeak within a year of buying the bed, then you should definitely consider getting in touch with the retailer you bought your bed from to see if they can help you fix your bed.

Your bedroom is your haven – that sacred place you call your own in mind, body and spirit. Whether you intend for a maximalist or minimalist space, you want to harmonise it while retaining your own signature. It is easy to shop too much or too little when you’re putting together a bedroom – whether in a new house or while redecorating. A great way to organise ideas – whether on trend or classic – into your own signature bedroom is to use moodboards. They come in handy to mould your creativity and shape your vision for the perfect space for your repose.
Here’s a lowdown on how you can set out to create moodboards lest your bedroom should run the risk of feeling disconnected, a mere show of the money you spend, or worse still, end up wasting!
How to get a good nights sleep in the heat or cold?
It’s the middle of the night. You wake up feeling hot and uncomfortable. So, you toss your duvet away, and curl back up. Less than half an hour in and you wake up freezing. You reach the age-old truce and resort to sticking one foot or leg out of the covers, desperately hoping the sweat or shivers won’t return the rest of the night.
Peach Bedroom Inspiration
Peach, not quite pink and not quite orange. It’s somewhere in between. Soothing and pleasant to look at. Soft and feminine. Peach pairs well with a lot of different colours and shades, so it’s not difficult to use in a bedroom. Peach works best with other warm tones that bring out it’s best.
