Where to buy a single bedstead

The single bed was a fairly modern invention. Until 1890, the double bed was the most popular bed size available. In the 1890s, the single bed made its début with much controversy with ministers declaring that it would bring about the end of marriage while doctors praised it for its health and safety benefits. Despite the controversy, the bed became popular both for adults and for children. Single bedsteads are available today.

Furnishing store

A furnishing store will have a selection of single bedsteads. These bedsteads will have different materials for their construction, such as wood, press board covered with wood veneer, metal bedsteads and more. Some of the bedsteads will come with bed mattresses that can be conventional or foam beds. The single bedstead could also be in the form of a multi-level bed with a high bed that is over a set of drawers or a built-in desk.

Bed store

A bed store will be able to offer far more of a selection of single bedsteads from the traditional to the contemporary. You will be able to find captain's beds, novelty beds in the form of race cars and boats, fantasy coaches, loft beds and more. Some of these bedsteads will be on sale and some will come with memory foam mattresses or some other mattress deal. If the mattress does not come with the bed, you may still be able to buy a mattress on sale. A single bedstead will be available for most rooms.

Antique store or custom

An antique store will be a source for interesting and vintage beds. These beds may date back to the 1800s and be made of metal or wood. The bed frames may be plain or ornate as well as be in various levels of condition. You may find that the bed may require some work that could be as minor as a new finish or coat of paint to actual parts that may need replacing. If you cannot find a bed that works well for your needs, you can make one or have a single bedstead made according to your specifications. The bed could be in any style whether an homage to the past or the distant future.
