This is a bed which is the most popular amongst all others and has the most simplistic design. It is basically made of two separate parts, which are actually joined together by a bracket. Even though the base is almost 3 feet high, it has a huge storage space below it and one headboard attached to it. This type is found in a lot of households as it is easy to dismantle and place again. The sprung edge design provides a good and cushioned support for the mattress and helps it in not wearing off easily. Not only is it sturdy and comfortable, but also its prices are cheap.
2. Sofa Bed

This is a multifunctional type of bed, which as you know, acts as a sofa in the day while at night, it can be easily converted into a bed. This is usually used because people do not have a lot of space in their houses and this obviously takes up very less space. Usually having a wooden frame and a single mattress which can be opened up, this one is ideal for small spaces. Also, it saves you a lot of money since you don’t have to buy a bed and a sofa separately. Pretty convenient, isn’t it?
3. Bunk Bed

This one is a total hit among the kids. Say you have two children and they fight for a bed of their own, so you can easily purchase this one where they would get two separate sleep spaces. Moreover, the thrill of climbing a ladder and going off to sleep is really adventurous for them. It helps you save a lot of space. And not just is it trendy and quirky, but also a great money saver for you.
4. Sleigh Bed

It gives you an aura of a French look and adds a new kind of beauty to your room. And we suggest that this is one must-have for your house in today’s day and age.
5. Futon Bed

A futon is just a padded mattress which can be easily folded and kept in the cupboard. Even though it has a wooden/metallic frame to keep it above the ground, the space it consumes is very less. And not just that, it can be easily converted into a chair or a sofa for reading or when a guest comes by. They are really very pretty looking and come in a variety of colors which give your room a very lively appeal.
6. Cabin Bed

This one just looks like a bunk bed but has only a single bunk with a great storage cabinet beneath. Again, this one fits up perfectly in a small corner of the room and gives a very cozy look to your room and hats down, saves the most space.
7. Canopy Bed

For all the girls out there, this is the one that you would love to have. Even though the base looks like a pretty normal one, the decorative fabric which surrounds it from all four sides gives it a pretty and cozy look and makes you want to stay in that nest the whole day. Back in old days, it was considered to be a luxury and only the elite ones were allowed to use it. But it’s different now and you can totally have one of these beauties in your bedroom.
8. Four-Poster Bed

This one uses really high-quality wood to make it sturdy in nature. The head of this type of bed is engraved with really pretty and antique designs, and it gives a very traditional look to the room. It also has four posters alongside the edges, which ensure that it would not break that easily. The difference between a canopy bed and a four-poster bed is that there is no canopy (overhead roof or structure) attached to the four poles in the latter.
9. Murphy Bed

Ever seen those kinds of beds in movies where one can just fold it up along the wall and it looks like there was never a bed there? These are known as Murphy beds and they can be vertically folded up along the wall so that there is no dearth of space on the floor. These are usually used in studio apartments due to lack of space and this bed can be taken out as per your convenience.
10. Platform Bed
