There Are So Many Different Types of Bed Frames.
How am I supposed to choose from a gazillion bed frames?
Rest assured, we’ve got you covered.
Bed is the place where people would normally sleep, these beds need to be sturdy enough to carry the weight of the people sleeping on them, now this may sound odd, but not all beds are made to a good enough standard to actually support the required loads!
You would be surprised at just how many bed frames collapse soon after their initial installation. So, don’t put yourself in that uncomfortable position, stick with us and we’ll help you find the best option.
A good point of reference here, is to browse online for all the available styles and designs, and then look at the feedback from previous purchasers. You can be sure that you will find much more information regarding the durability of the bed frames from the actual users, rather than from a sales person on the showroom floor.
The bed frames play an important role when it comes to the strength and durability of the bed. There are many different types of bed frames to choose from, and they all come in different types of materials and styles.
Metal bed frames are possibly the most common type. Large size beds like full, king and queen sizes are most made with a metal frame. Beds with large frames will almost certainly require a support in the center, this will help in keeping the whole frame from collapsing in the centre. This is a very definite “must have” component if you’re buying a double, or larger size bed, some beds don’t have this piece, and even those that do, don’t always have them made substantially enough to actually do what they’re supposed to do. One thing that you can do, is actually get underneath the bed frame and give this center leg a sound tap with your foot, it shouldn’t move, and you will be able to tell by this if it’s going to stand the test of time.
Another popular material for the manufacture of bed frames is good old fashioned timber. The only problem with this is, that as timber is becoming more scarce, the price inevitably rises and thus all things made of wood increase in price. Many manufacturers try to get around these rising costs by skimping on the dimensions of the lumber that goes into the manufacture of the bed frames. Needless to say, this can result in a less than perfect product.
