How is value determined
I have previously written about all of the different types of material that there are, when choosing a mattress, in this previous post. Choosing the correct mattress for me . A lot of the pricing and value of a bed is also due to the materials used, and of course sizing, but id like to you to know that you could spend thousands of euros on a bed, but it might all be in vain if you dont actually need what it offers. Now id like to point out the variety of bed types we have , and hopefully after you value the pros and cons of each one, then you will know which best suits you.
Do you need storage in your bedroom?
This is a great question, because many people never consider all of the un used space that is under your bed. Therefore i present the storage bed. Picture above is the Viena storage bed, This bed obviously offers storage by a lifting method. The top, usually attached to a solid divan. Opens by lifting, to show all of the items neatly stored inside.
