HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BED FRAME FOR YOUR BEDROOM

BED FRAME STYLES: HOW TO CHOOSE THE PERFECT TYPE FOR YOUR BEDROOM

When it comes to finding the perfect bed frame for your bedroom there are endless styles to choose from to suit both the shape and style of your bedroom, as well as complement your personality and style. While choosing a bed frame that is the right size to fit your mattress, there are other factors to take into consideration such as the material type, colour and design. With all of the options available it can seem quite overwhelming. We have created a guide on how to choose the best bed frame for your bedroom. This guide outlines the pros and cons of each bed type to help you decide between all the bed frame styles.
 

1 Platform Bed Frames

Platform bed frames are by far one of the most popular frame styles as they are available in a variety of styles. The platform bed frame is characterised by its low base which allows you to just add your mattress on top of the flat base rather than having to also purchase a bed base or box spring.
 

Platform Bed Advantages

  • Platform beds are extremely cost effective and are generally more affordable than other bed frame styles. This is because there is no need to spend money on buying a bed base as well as your mattress and bed frame.
  • Platform bed frames are notorious for being small space savers due to the sleek, streamlined design of them. With a platform bed you minimise on clutter and make the most of the space you have while still feeling comfortable.
 

Platform Bed Disadvantages

  • Platform beds are generally lower to the ground and so climbing in and out of bed can take a bit of getting used to. If you have knee of back problems, you should consider if this will be something you will be able to do daily or not.

Upholstered Bed Disadvantages

  • As with any upholstered furniture item, you will need to keep it clean to ensure its looks and feels good for as long as you have it. You will need to frequently vacuum your headboard to remove any dust and hair, as well as wipe it down with a slightly damp cloth to give it a good clean.
  • Because fabric is much less durable than wood or metal, it will be prone to showing dents and impressions, as well as any dirt or grease spots.
