What to Look for When Researching Custom-Made Beds

Size, shape, storage and more. You want a custom-made bed tailored to you and your lifestyle. However, during the initial design process, there are details like bedding and mattresses that are a mere afterthought.

Here’s what to look for when researching custom-made beds so you can sit back safe in the knowledge it’s all taken care of.

Will They Accommodate Your Concept and Make It a Reality?

When researching the perfect manufacturer for your custom-made bed, ask them what customisation options are available to you so your new addition is truly unique.

If you don’t already have a bespoke piece in mind - get inspired. Whether that’s by looking at key bedroom trends, popular colours or timeless interior designs. 

With bespoke beds, you shouldn’t be limited to standard finishes and bedding options either - be creative with fabrics, finishes and intricacies to envision something exquisite. You also want the ability to marry details you like from one collection with another, creating your own hybrid bed with your favourite components.

Can It Be Made to Measurements That Suit the Room Size?

Once you’ve taken into consideration the size of the room your bed will reside in, you need to find the right balance of room-to-bed ratio that works for you. Too small of a space and your bed will look cramped and overwhelmed. Too large and the bed seems infinitesimal compared to the size of the room.   

When you’ve decided on what kind of statement your bed should make in its location, you need to make sure the craftsmen can accommodate it. Whether that’s bespoke length, width, storage or headboard height to balance the composition of the room.

Are There Bespoke Mattresses Available for Your Custom Bed?

HENRY SMEATON CLASSIC 2000 MATTRESS for custom made beds

You may have a vision in mind for your bed with intricacies and ornate details, but whether or not you can get a mattress that fits from the same manufacturers is a different story altogether. Mattresses play a pivotal part when buying a new bed.

We spend one-third of our lives sleeping, so it’s important the mattress helps you do so in complete bliss. You might have to source this from somewhere else so your bed might arrive but you might have to wait on your mattress before you can truly enjoy it - or vice versa.

At Revival Beds, not only do we craft custom-made beds but we also have an extensive collection of extra-long mattresses. 

The Henry Smeaton name has been synonymous with luxury British mattresses since 1893. Exclusive to Revival Beds, every mattress is handcrafted in Yorkshire using the finest materials and quality-tested at every stage of production to offer outstanding support for a sublime night’s sleep. 

Can They Provide Custom-Made Bedding and Drapes?

Bedding shouldn’t just be an afterthought. With custom-made beds comes unique measurements that don’t always fit the off-the-shelf solutions readily available.  

As each item of bedding is individually handmade to order, we can also create bespoke bedding in any depth, length or width. Our collection of duvets, pillows, four-poster drapes and bedding packs are designed and hand-stitched in the UK from the world’s finest fabrics. 

Available up to 1000 thread count, our luxury bedding is handmade to order and available up to 8ft wide.

If your bed is a stately four-poster, you require specialists who can craft bespoke luxury drapes, curtains, pelmets, half-testers, runners and canopies that don’t look out of place.

At Revival Beds, we have an extensive arsenal of decadent fabrics from heavy brocades to dreamy voiles in a wonderful array of colours. You’re sure to find the perfect look for your bespoke four-poster bed. Everything is made to order by our UK seamstresses.

Will It Complement Your Existing Bedroom Furniture?

What’s the motif that ties your room altogether? For some people, it’s that one colour featured on accessories and soft furnishings which unifies the entire interior. Over time, if you want to revamp your bedroom, then you have the option of switching out decorations.

Hardwood beds are stunning on their own but can also be stained or painted to match your existing pieces. Another way to harmonise your furniture is by having the same handles or carvings conform. 

When it comes to custom-made beds, you want to work with experienced craftsmen who can make your vision come to life with their own two hands. Look no further than the bespoke options we can create at Revival Beds.
