Buying guide to beds

Bedsteads and mattresses will be one of the more expensive furnishing items in your holiday short let property.

We recommend frame style bedsteads which are raised from the floor. This makes cleaning floor areas under the bed a lot easier. Divan style beds usually require a valance or more decoration which will increase your preparation time. The choice is endless but the main considerations are wood or metal frame, veneer or solid wood and of course style.

Currently the Marks and Spencer ‘Hastings’ range is a good value product.

Key tips:

  • Shop around for a bargain. You can often find discounts of 10-20%
  • Plan ahead as delivery time can be 5-10 weeks on many products

There is an enormous range of bed suppliers and bed types. Some of the online suppliers we have found include:

  • Marks and Spencer
  • John Lewis
  • Ikea (of varying quality)
  • Discount furniture suppliers such as Trade Secrets in Adderbury, Oxfordshire
