Suspended Floating Floating Beds
This bed looks like something from Robinson Crusoe. You can imagine a wayward adventurer setting up camp and using this style of bed to sleep in. These suspended beds are great for day time napping and general old relaxing. They are suspended from the roof and allow you to swing softly to sleep or gently in the breeze.
Wooden Floating Beds
This floating bed is made up of timber. The designer really has used the natural timber grain effectively to maximize the beauty and imperfections to the best of his ability. The finish is somewhat a rustic motif or that of a farm house. The floating side tables finish the job off nicely and they are the ice cream on the cake. The bed perfectly matches the windows and floorboards. The overall country style motif works well for this particular room.

Futuristic Floating Beds
It’s hard to tell if this floating bed is retro style trying to be futuristic or is it future style trying to be retro. Who cares, it looks pretty cool regardless. The head board uses geometric patterns to give depth and dimension then it appears to have been covered in a shiny vinyl material to really make it pop. The side boards are floating as well which makes it look more futuristic than it already is. This one for the show pony as it is not minimalist nor is it subtle in anyway at all.
Bunk Floating Beds
Here is a unique take on the bunk beds. Instead of the traditional beds with frames they have gone for the floating beds stacked above one another. I wonder how they anchored them into the wall. I dare say there is a heavy support that we can’t see in the image and it’s well hidden creating the illusion of suspended animation. This is great if you are short and space and will free up some much needed room. If you look to the left you will see floating inbuilt shelves as well which is a nice tough and really completes the look. Even the fans get the treatment and instead of hanging from the roof they are attached to the window.
Black and White Floating Bed
Here is a black and white floating bed and it looks great. You may have noticed that floating beds are used with the minimal style approach and that’s because it works so well. The polished floor accentuates the black areas and really ties in nicely with the overall theme. The white has been used in the highlights to create depth and dimension throughout and give the setting a more three dimensional feel. The use of color really makes the room pop and is proof that sometimes keeping it simple is better than going overboard with too many colors. A good stylist will make it work regardless of how many colors they have at their disposal.
I Dream of Genie
The next few floating beds look like they are literally floating on an invisible air pocket. It’s hard to believe that they are real at all. They sure are suspended. This is an optical illusion and the support comes from a very sturdy support beam underneath the bed. It’s hard to see it because the support is inset into the bed. It’s a clever piece of trickery that works well in creating a finite spacial look that goes well with the overall appeal of the bedroom.
Space Saving Floating Beds
Floating beds are great for space saving and you can incorporate shelving and pull out draws so you can save time and space. A lot of beds come pre built with these or you can have them installed by a carpenter later if you desire them further down the track. They can be used to store extra bedding or even towels. As you can you see in the above image that this bed has them at the foot of the bed and at the head of the bed. There are two small cabinets at the top that act as bedside tables as well.
Then you have the pull out draws and the shelves at the base which they are using to store bedding and towels. The best thing to do is talk to your cabinet maker about the storage options that you require for you bed and get them to make a custom made to match your needs. It’s relatively inexpensive and this will ensure you get the right bed for you.
Black Floating Beds
It’s not often you see a black bed. People tend to avoid using black as a predominant color because it gives the appearance of taking up too much space. This is not the case in the image above the designer has done a great job incorporating this floating into the room. The light underneath really makes it pop and stand out. As you can see the head board is made from black and silver which is a quite distinguished combination and lends itself well to the overall appeal of the room.
