Never underestimate the value of a bed. It’s the place where you replenish energy after a long day. Where you unwind and rest. Where you dream. As we spend so much of our lives in bed, it’s no surprise that those with big budgets have cash to splash when it comes to getting 40 winks. By combining technology, premium materials and design, the most expensive bed in the world promises to take sleep to the next level. 

Keep reading to discover the world’s most expensive beds and what makes them so pricey.

What makes a bed expensive?

When it comes to new beds, there are a range of things that make one more expensive than the other. Here are some things that make a bed more premium:


With a bigger bed comes more workmanship and more materials. So naturally a larger bed commands a higher price. The most expensive beds in the world are all super sized, with the priciest mattress measuring a whopping 305cm x 305cm.


Of course, a bed’s price tag will automatically rise if it’s adorned with gold leaf and crystals. However, what really makes an impact on sleep is the mattress you’re sleeping on. The materials that go into making a premium mattress tend to be natural. High-quality fibres like organic cotton, linen and wool are preferable because their breathability makes for a more comfortable sleep. 

How they’re made

Another thing that goes into making a premium bed is expert craftsmanship. When a mattress is hand-sewn, a bed frame carved by hand and attention paid to the smallest detail, you get a finer finish. The companies behind the world’s most expensive beds employ expert craftspeople to ensure the highest standard of finish.

The world’s most expensive beds

With new beds and mattresses entering the market every year, the world’s most expensive bed is constantly changing. But one thing’s for sure, they all combine the highest quality craftsmanship and materials to achieve the title. With so many beds available, we’ve whittled the list down to four of the world’s most expensive beds:
