Why choose faux leather over leather?

If you’re looking at a leather bed for your bedroom, you may want to consider faux leather bed frames instead. The material has the appearance of real leather but is significantly cheaper.

What's more, the affordability does not sacrifice the quality of the bed frame. Faux leather beds are high in demand at Sleep & Snooze as they are easy to maintain and care for as well as being more sustainable and animal cruelty conscious.

What is the quality difference between leather and faux leather?

Faux leather, although not real leather, has a very similar luxurious soft look and feel. The aesthetics and texture of faux leather being so similar to real leather allows you to create the same interior style at a much lower cost and without sacrificing the quality.

Although faux leather isn’t as durable as real leather, with the right care and maintenance, faux leather bed frames offer longevity. Due to the manufacturing process, faux leather tends to be more uniform in both colour and texture compared to leather, with little imperfections being present.

What decor trends do faux leather beds suit?

As faux leather beds are available in a range of colours and styles, they suit many different themes of decor. Below we explore bedroom trends and how to incorporate a faux leather bed.


Upholstered bed frames, particularly suede and faux leather, are often used when creating classic bedroom decors.

Faux leather beds allow you to embrace classic and traditional designs, using other furnishings to complement the bed as the centrepiece in your bedroom. You can even add to the luxury of this bedframe through the bedding, using extravagant throws and cushions.


If you’re looking to indulge in opulence, whether within modern or classic interior design, faux leather can assist with creating a mesmerizing room which anyone would wish to sleep in. Selecting a black leather frame and pairing it with gold furnishing and accessories can create magnificence and opulence in any bedroom.

Select a bold colour palette and explore different textures. Adding accessories such as velvet cushions can bring the whole room together, achieving that desired boutique trend in your sleep space.


When styling your room with the goal of creating a botanical look, faux leather beds can be a great choice. Selecting a light coloured faux leather can allow other colours to pop out such as greenery from surrounding plants and accessories.
