AD | Collaborative post

You just can’t beat a wooden bed frames timelessness and character, with that warm, organic material being a pleasure in any space.

Metal bed frames can feel cold in comparison, and upholstery is nowhere near as durable – they’re still great options, but wood has a natural appeal, especially with a stain instead of paint or a crisp colour that adds a touch of class.

2024 is all about dual-tone wooden bed frames, low profiles, interesting headboards, and useful storage to maximise floor space.

Plain wooden bed frames remain popular for their longevity, but people are daring in their choices this year to create bedroom focal points.

So, what styles are in?

Rattan is the big winner in 2024 as people look to keep their bedrooms light and airy a must after the wettest 18 months on record!

Duo-tone bed frames are also popular to give bedrooms a striking focal point, with natural oak and grey being the most popular colour combo.

Storage is (as always) a must in small bedrooms, and ottoman beds are outselling beds with drawers despite their higher price tags.

A natural wooden bed frame is proving more popular than painted ones, but the lighter stains are doing best—darker stains will be out in 2024.
