As the Net Grows, so do Beds!!
As is well documented the internet has brought masses of choice and an explosion of niche retailers. Lately this has come to include more home furnishers and in particular bed retailers supplying outsized and unusual beds
Consumers are now presented with more choice than ever when it comes to nearly everything they purchase online, this is no different when it comes to home furnishings and now it seems even more so with your choice of bed. Think back (if your old enough that is...) to the 70's, 80's and even the 90's, most home furnishings like the traditional 3 piece suite came in in 1 style and 3 colour options (if you were lucky). It was the same with beds, every bed store would typically have a set of divan bases in single, double, king, superking, from these you chose a style and a colour and you were on your way. Anyone who wanted something a little different, a wrought iron bed or an adjustable bed, had to get out and about and seek out a specialist shop, making sure their pockets were deep enough to pay the extra for a 'specialist' bed.
Well those days are quickly becoming a distant memory, the advent of the internet and e-commerce has blown open the furniture and bed market to the one thing that every customer loves....choice!
With beds it seems like the number of sites has been growing steadily as opposed to an fast expansion as with the case of electronics and other small easy to ship products, but now almost any type of bed and mattress available at the touch of a button (or at least a search of google). The choice is now so great that beds can be made to fit any room in the house, where in the past a standard double bed may have been to big for a room, a four foot bed can be easily ordered from sites such as mattressman.co.uk, the mattress can be ordered in a number of designs and types and be delivered within a few days. Other niche bed manufacturers are now enjoying fantastic business because their products are so unique that there are being easily sought for on the web, businesses such as bedmill.co.uk and revival beds stock circular and four poster beds that can be custom made to any size!
With this expansion in choice of beds comes the obligatory expansion in the choice of accessories. Bed linens are now easily available in sizes to fit any type of mattress in a number of fabrics from standard poly cotton percale to top quality 400 count cotton. In turn other accessories need to be the right size to fit a particular bed so larger quilts have become available along with extra long pillows, all of which need the correct size duvet sets and pillow cases.
As online stores offer more choice in beds it seems the days of the high street shop and its limited stocks may soon be a thing of the past.
