How To Choose The Perfect Bed Frame For Your New Home

Posted by Dave Hyman on

When it comes to the quality of your sleep, choosing the right bed frame is just as important as getting the right mattress. We spend, on average, 26 years of our lives sleeping. So, it's vital to have a good mattress and a sturdy bed frame.

The bed frame serves as the primary support system for your bed, so you want to choose the right one for your situation. It can also be a design focal point in your bedroom, making it even more important to get right. 

If you’ve just moved into a new space and are looking to style your bedroom just right, have no fear as we’ve put together the best tips for choosing a bed frame for your new home.

Consider current mattress size

Do you already love your mattress? If you’re planning to keep it but want to upgrade your bed frame, use the mattress as your sizing guide. When looking for a bed frame, always have your mattress measurements on hand. Whether you end up with a double bed frame, queen bed frame, or a king sized bed frame will all depend on your mattress size. There are a few variations, and some bed frames might not fit a standard size because of their style and where you buy them. 

Measure the size of the room

In most bedrooms, the bed is the largest piece of furniture, and a large bed can easily overpower a small space. You can use your mattress to get a sense of the room's size or use pillows or masking tape to approximate it. A small room may only be big enough for a double bed frame or queen bed frame. If you really must have a king bed frame and your space is limited, you can broaden your storage options by choosing a bed frame with drawers underneath or shelves in the headboard.

Platform or box spring

Many platform beds simply require a mattress and do not require a box spring, making them an attractive option for budget-conscious customers. Of course, certain platform beds can accept a box spring if you prefer your bed to be a little higher off the ground. For some, deciding between a platform bed and a box spring comes down to a matter of firmness. Many people prefer the hard foundation and support many platform beds give.

Consider the bed's height and bulkiness

Aim your tape measure towards the ceiling if you want the dramatic effect of a more eye-catching bed frame, such as a four-poster or canopy bed. A tall bed frame necessitates a high ceiling, as even a spacious bedroom might become claustrophobic. Take extra measurements if you like a bulky bed frame, such as a sleigh bed or a bed frame-headboard combo with bookshelves. Note that larger beds may need to be disassembled and reassembled to fit through a bedroom door, so be sure your frame allows for this.

Match your own decorating style

Because the bed is the focal feature of every bedroom, picking the right style is crucial. Consider utilising a wooden bed frame and putting quilts and cushions on top to create a warm, welcoming, and cosy ambience. For people who prefer a sleek, modern look, a bed frame constructed of metal or wood with clean, minimalist lines is excellent.

After you've determined which types might work in your room, look at other versions, such as upholstered bed frames, wrought-iron beds, and brass beds, to see which one best suits you. In terms of style, a new home opens up so many doors; the possibilities are unlimited! What's left is to choose the mood or feeling you want to create, which will help you narrow down your options.
