Bed Buying Guide: What Style Bed Should I Get?
Posted By: 
Friday, April 21, 2017


You may be trying to match other furniture and décor in the room or looking to redecorate, but either way, you’ll want to define a theme that is evident in your bedroom.  Not to be confused with design (the structure) the style determines the look of the bed.  For example, a sleigh bed is a type of design, but did you know that not all sleigh beds look traditional? There are dozens of styles to choose from:


Contemporary and modern beds incorporate trending materials and shapes, like metal or straight lines, to create a look that trades tradition for in-the-moment. 

Often seen on: Platform beds


Industrial style beds are part of a similar movement, channeling the factory atmosphere through a raw materials and an urban look.

Often seen on: Wrought Iron beds


Scandinavian beds have become increasingly popular, thanks for IKEA, and are easily identifiable by their simple, functional design. 

Often seen on: Storage beds


Traditional beds are picturesque displays of conventional beds, with all of the warmth and familiarity of a chair by the fire.

Often seen on:  Low-post beds


Vintage and antique beds, likewise, purposefully cultivate the feel of days gone by and usually reflect a specific era in history.

Often seen on: Four-poster beds


Romantic beds feature embellishments like canopies, embroidery, and hand carvings, adding charm, beauty, and whimsy to the room. 

Often seen on: Tester or Canopy Beds


The look and feel of your bed should match your personal style as much as your décor.  If you’re feeling limited by the cookie-cutter options in furniture stores, we invite you to the Stigler’s experience.  We know one size and style of bed doesn’t fit all, so we custom craft each piece of furniture to meet the design and style requests of our customers.  At Stigler’s, your dream bed isn’t an inconvenience, it’s a work of art.

“Stigler’s Woodworks has been our 'go to’ company for all of our woodworking needs since 2000. Initially recommended by a friend, Rob has built an incredible custom bar, end tables, desk, stair rails and more for us since then. The quality of the work is exceeded only by the quality of the people of Stigler’s Woodworks.
“Just a note to say how much we’re enjoying the beauty of our new bed. The type of craftsmanship that you put into the making of the bed is something seldom seen today. As time goes by, I’m sure we’ll enjoy the beauty of the bed even more. We hope that someday, when the bed is passed on to our grand daughter, that she will appreciate the beautiful craftsmanship as well.”
“Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how pleased we are with the cabinets you built for us. We love them so much. I also want to commend you on how well you clean up when you’re done. That means so much to me. You all did such a wonderful job on everything you did. We will probably be calling you soon for a hallway cabinet. Thanks! Thanks! Thanks again."
