Choosing a bed frame can be much more complicated than you thought. There are many things to consider when buying bed frames and some of them are very easy to overlook. And if you do not analyse each of these criteria, you can make a costly mistake. So we will start this guide by pointing out the most important things to consider when buying the best bed frames.
When you go in search of a suitable bed frame, you probably don't know how many different types of beds there are. Bed frames differ in style, how you use them and much more. Platform, canopy, box spring and adjustable bed options are some of the most common types of bed you will find on the market.
A canopy is very decorative and attractive looking, and it is also a good choice for all those who need complete darkness to sleep. You can find a divan bed as well, which is similar to the Ottoman bed frame. And that's just scraping the surface! So, let's go over a few of the more distinguishing bed frames and see what they bring to the table.
The platform bed is the simplest type, having (wooden) sprung slats that hold the mattress. This type of bed frame is the most affordable, especially as it is super easy to set up. Plus, they're usually rather simple in design. So, if you're looking for a simple metal or wood bed frame without too many bells and whistles, a platform bed frame could be the way to go.
A box spring is a type of bed frame that has a sturdy and solid wooden base, so there is no need for slats. This type offers the highest level of support. It also usually has storage space. So, if you want a really sturdy bed frame that can add some firmness to your mattress, a metal bed frame with a box spring should be right up your alley. However, be prepared for a higher price tag.
Adjustable beds give you the ability to raise parts of the bed, usually the part at the head or feet. These kinds of bed frames are ideal for people who suffer from certain medical conditions or have difficulties getting comfortable. And it's the best bed frame if you want to fine-tune your ideal sleeping position.
The main downside is that, in more than 95% of the cases, you are obliged to buy a mattress from the same company. This is because not every mattress is going to be compatible with adjustable bed frames. And they can be a bit specific when it comes to the size, so it's not as simple as getting a double, king, super king or emperor and calling it a day.
A canopy bed frame is also sometimes called a four-poster bed frame because it has four posts – though four poster beds are slightly different. These four posts create a canopy, which gives a very nice look.
It also gives you the opportunity to put curtains there and thus create an intimate and dark space for yourself. This is an option that has been popular since medieval courts, and in recent years it has gained significant popularity again.
It creates a very cosy feeling. You need to clean it regularly, because dust accumulates on the tops of the posts as well as on the curtains. Also, you need more space to accommodate the canopy bed frame. And you should know that it is difficult to move it. But if privacy is your number one priority, canopy beds are still more than worth it.
While this is a topic we'll cover in greater detail later on, we'd like to touch on it now as well. As the name implies, storage beds are bed frames that provide added storage space, usually under the bed or in the form of drawers on the side.
The benefit of these kinds of bed frames is pretty straightforward – you have more room to store your stuff. This is especially important if you live in a smaller apartment. And since most higher-end storage bed frames have mechanisms for “opening” the bed, they're also rather convenient.
Since bed frames can be a bit difficult to group, under daybeds we're counting any bed frame that can provide an extra sleeping space or extra floor room. For example, if you get a bunk bed, a sofa bed, or a trundle bed, you effectively get a second sleeping space when you need it. And bunk beds are especially useful if you have children and limited bedroom space.
However, you also have things such as cabin beds, that have the bed above the ground, usually with a desk underneath. These bed frames give you some extra floor space to work with while also getting a good night's sleep!
If you want it to have a stylish bed frame without taking up too much space then the headboard type is the perfect choice. Also, it suits all those tall people, who are uncomfortable sleeping in a sleigh bed because it limits them on both sides.
The headboard will give an equally beautiful look, and it is suitable for people of all heights. There are also standalone headboards so you can add them to any type of bed. But if you choose a standalone headboard, then do not count on having a bed frame that will hold the mattress, but only the decoration. Also, some of the headboards cannot be attached to some beds.
Size is something you need to pay attention to for several reasons. First off, you have to make sure that the size of your bed frame matches with your mattress. You can't choose a king size mattress and have a double bed frame! This is because the double bed frame is going to be way too small and you'll have to fold your mattress in order to get it within the frame. And this isn't good for the mattress or your new bed frame. So, whether you have a double, king, super king or even a custom bed frame, make sure the mattress size fits!
The next reason why you have to think about the size of the bed frame is because of the room dimension. If you have a small room, a huge canopy bed frame probably won't be able to fit. And even if it can somehow fit, the bed shouldn't occupy the entire space. After all, what's the best of getting the best bed frames if they block you from ever exiting your bedroom?
So, if you're getting a double bed frame, for example, see how big that actually is and measure how it will fit in your bedroom. Also, keep in mind that there's a difference between a UK double bed frame and an EU double bed frame.
Even a traditional bed frame can take up a lot of space and if you opt for a four-poster bed, you'll also have to think of the height! So, keep the dimensions in mind!
Bed frames, especially if they are made of high quality wood or metal, can be extremely heavy. So you need to think about what your needs are. If you have bought a house in which you plan to spend the next 30 years and it has large rooms, then you do not have to think about portability. Then a heavy metal bed frame won't pose any issues. Such models give us a cosy feeling, because they are very stable, while light ones jiggle as soon as you move in bed.
On the other hand, if you are in a rented apartment where you will stay for a short time, then you need a bed frame that you will easily remove when you move. Therefore, consider the material of a frame.
A wooden bed frame could be better in this situation, at least most of the time. As we've mentioned a wooden bed frame that uses high-quality wood can still be on the heavier side. However, you can also find a relatively light wooden bed frame if you look around a bit.
On a similar note to the previous section, you should also think of the material of the bed frame in terms of durability. After all, not all bed frames were made equal and some are a lot more resistant to wear and tear than others. Not to mention that some bed frames have weight limits. And what's the point of having the best bed frame if it can't even support you and your partner properly?
Luckily, it's not too difficult to guage the durability of your potential new bed frame. Generally, a metal bed frame is going to be more durable than a wood bed frame. With that being said, higher-quality wood can still make for quite a sturdy wooden bed frame.
Also, while this only really applies to wooden bed frames, make sure they're fire-resistant! After all, you never know what can happen and this is a good sign of overall durability. The other good sign, for wood and metal bed frames alike, is the warranty.
Another important aspect of every bed frame is the storage space. This is super-crucial to the sleepers who don't have a lot of space to convert to storage. An Ottoman bed frame is probably the most famous storage bed frame as it really has a lot of space. Not to mention a luxurious design and a high-quality piston-mechanism that opens/closes the storage space.
With that being said, not everyone needs more storage space. If you already have a place for all of your duvets, pillows, and blankets, the best bed frame doesn't need any storage space whatsoever. However, if you're jumping over a pillow fort to get to bed, the best bed frame for you will likely be an Ottoman or something similar.
The design of the bed frame is something that will probably have the biggest impact on the look of the entire bedroom. So if you are paying attention to the aesthetics, consider what style you want. Stylish bed frames should fit with the design of the rest of the room.
For example, if you have a very elegant room, getting the best upholstered bed frame will fit right in. On the other hand, a minimalistic bedroom likely won't have any room for even the best upholstered bed frame or four-poster bed! Here you'd likely want a traditional wooden bed frame or something similar. You can also buy a bed frame first and then design everything else accordingly to avoid this issue.
It will not be a problem for you to find any style, because the choice of nice bed frames on the market is huge. Whether you want classic wooden bed frames that will look like it was made 100 years ago or you want a modern design, you will find exactly what you want to achieve night's comfort. In addition, you should look for a space-saving design, or storage beds.
Don't forget to ask the seller, whether you are buying in a brick and mortar shop or online, what the assembly process is like. While with some the assembly is very quick and easy, so it is ready in just half an hour, others require much more time, knowledge and the right tools. And you're unlikely to get a good night's sleep if the bed frame is built incorrectly!
Weight also affects whether you can assemble a bed frame on your own. If it is a more complex type of bed frame, and you do not have the appropriate tools or someone to help you, immediately ask if they can assemble it for you when they deliver it. A good bed frame requires effort and tools sometimes to be put together.
Good quality bed frames are made of many different materials, and the material they are made of will play a big role in how long they will last, whether they will be stable and what they will look like. And, generally, the best bed frames will use high-quality materials. However, said best bed frames will also likely be more expensive than more standard models.
Wood as a traditional material is very beautiful, environmentally friendly and high quality. But you have to take maintain it because wood cracks if not maintained properly. Then there is metal, which is the most cost-effective, but sometimes a bit less comfortable. Leather or faux leather and upholstered bed fabric are two more options you will often encounter. Both give a nice look but require maintenance, especially leather. Upholstered fabric must be vacuumed frequently due to the dust that accumulates. However, if the best bed frame in your mind needs to look stunning, it's still more than worth it.
● Wooden bed frames are a great option, but require maintenance
● Metal is the most cost-effective
● Price is usually a reflection of quality.
The advantages of owning the best bed frames are numerous. First, you will sleep very comfortably because it will provide solid support to your mattress. After all, getting the best bed frame isn't just for show! The very best bed frame should compliment your mattress and allow it to perform at its peak quality.
Having the best bed frame is also important in terms of design. A velvet bed frame can easily be the focal point of your bedroom and tie all the other elements together. Or, on the other hand, you can utilise a simple divan bed to create a more relaxing bedroom atmosphere.
This is why if you were to try to use a low quality bed frame, we are sure you would quickly decide to buy one of the best bed frames instead. The difference is quite noticeable. So, you might as well cut out the middle section and get the best bed frame right off the bat!
● The best bed frames will provide you with stability during sleep
● Most of them are easy to assemble
● An eye-catching design is something you can count on when buying the best bed frames.
