There are different types of beds available in the market. The most common types are the platform bed, storage bed, sofa bed and bunk beds. Platform beds are those which are placed on a raised frame from the ground. A storage bed will have storage space beneath the bed. Sofa bed is a sofa cum bed where the frame of the sofa can be pulled out to make provision for bed. A bunk bed is one in which one frame is stacked over another. This is mainly seen in kid’s room.
