A bed frame is the foundation of your bed, so choosing one that will improve the quality of your sleep is essential.
But how do you know which bed frame is right for you? In this blog, we have compiled a list of the most popular types of bed frames in the market just for you! Continue reading ahead to find out the bed frame of your dreams!
What to Consider When Buying a Bed Frame
Buying a bed frame, for most people, is not as important as buying a mattress. However, it is an equally important decision to make if you wish to enhance the quality of your sleep.
Before we dive in and talk about types of bed frames for sale, let us share some useful insights on factors that you need to consider before buying a bed frame:
The Bedroom Size
It is important that you take note of the amount of space you have in your bedroom. Ideally, there must be a space of at least 2 feet on the sides of your bed so you can move around freely.
Consider what other items go in your bedroom. Do you have a dresser? A wardrobe? A chest of drawers? A study desk? How much space will be left over if you push everything else up against the wall?
Measure the space available in your bedroom and then compare it with the size of the bed frame. Doing so will help you find the right solution for your room.
The Size of Your Mattress
If you have already picked out your mattress, you must use it as a size guide to buy the right bed frame. Your bed frame must properly fit the size of your mattress and match it.
There are several different variations of mattress sizes. For example, a California king bed mattress is 4 inches longer and 4 inches narrower than a standard king bed mattress.
The Slat System
The slat system is the unseen foundation that lies underneath a mattress. The slat system comes with the bed frame and can make or break your decision about a particular frame.
You must look for a slat system with less distance between the slats. The wider the distance, the sooner your mattress will wear out. Ideally, two slats should have a gap of 2.5 inches between them. Remember, the thicker and sturdier the slats, the firmer the support they will provide.
You must also consider the height of a bed frame before you purchase it. A higher bed frame and mattress is better for people who have mobility issues. A platform bed is a good option for you if you wish to stay close to the ground. A taller bed frame will give you more height than a low-profile bed frame.
