Round Beds Buying Guide
Remember the huge spinning bed from the movie Austin Powers? Would you want that in your home? It will cost some fortune. But if you have space in your house and would want a different kind of bed, it is probably worth it.
What is a Round Bed?
A round bed is exactly what it sounds like. It’s a bed shaped like a circle instead of the usual rectangular or square shapes. The mattress can be circular or rectangular, but the bed has to be circular.
So, why buy a round bed? They are luxurious. No one buys a round bed because it’s the cheapest bed around. An average round bed can cost in the upwards of $1000. The cheapest good-quality round beds cost $500-600, and they are also small in sizes.
Because they are circular shaped, the only space where you can sleep comfortably is at the center. Where you would place a conventional bed and have plenty of space in the room, round beds eats up a lot of space.
As you would expect, not everyone thinks round beds are worth buying. They are expensive. They take up a lot of space and are impractical for most families. But as we already mentioned, people buy round beds for their exquisite designs.

What should you look for when buying a Round Bed?
Buying any kind of furniture is a long-term investment. When it’s an expensive round bed in question, pay attention to the following features.
Round beds vary from small pieces of furniture that can be placed at one corner to large masterpieces. Buy a bed depending on the number of people who'll be sleeping on it and the space you have at home. If you want a King-sized bed for two, make sure you also have the space to accommodate it.
Finding a round bed is already hard enough. Finding an accompanying mattress can be a lot more hard work. Fortunately, most round beds on Wayfair, Amazon and the other sites also come with mattresses. But if they don’t have a mattress, good luck trying to find a mattress.
Just the way round beds and mattresses can be difficult to find, so are the linens. Most of them are also expensive, costing between $150 and $250. The best way to buy a round mattress is to find one with a mattress and its linens.
