What's the Point on Having a Round Bed, Anyway?

Updated: Jan 13, 2023

Okay, so, we don’t tend to see round beds very often. Maybe in a high-end hotel suite, or in a master bedroom belonging to people with a very specific sense of style. At first glance, a round bed might seem pointless… and weird. But there are features to a round bed that standard rectangular beds just can’t compete with.

First, round beds make a real style statement, but that style statement is also versatile. You can go minimalist and forego a headboard, or you can go all out and have a curved, tufted headboard that gives a cozy yet almost royal vibe. Round beds are great for big rooms, because you don’t necessarily have to put the bed near a wall. And to add even more interest (and convenience), you can get a rotating frame. So if you have a TV on one wall and a beautiful view out windows on the opposite wall, you can have your cake and eat it too with a rotating round bed.

Round mattresses also provide a different sleep style than standard-shaped mattresses, because they have no edges. It’s pretty much impossible to roll off a round mattress, and you don’t have to worry about banging your shins on the corners of your bed frame - because there are no corners. The other cool thing about sleeping on a round mattress is that, if you do forego a headboard, there’s really no “top” or “bottom” to a round bed, meaning you can sleep in pretty much any position you want.

There are Less Cons than Pros to Round Beds:

The complications that may come with a round bed aren’t hard to identify. And we admit, they aren’t right for every room or every budget. Custom made mattresses are always pricier than a standard, out-of-the-box rectangular mattress. And round beds aren’t exactly space-saving beds. And you might also be thinking: where would I even find sheets for one of these things? But it’s really not that complicated.
