An Overview On Bed Frames

Bed frames are the foundation to a good night’s sleep. So before you make a purchase, check this guide for suggestions of things to look for in an ideal frame.

Start by reviewing the type of material the bed frame is constructed out of. Many are made from a sturdy steel, while others feature solid wood slats. Still, there are some models out there that are made from cheap materials, including plastic, and these units won’t hold up under the pressure of everyday use.

Next, decide if you’d like your bed to have a headboard. Some models come with a headboard, while others might not come with a headboard, but allow for attaching to one with as long as you have the appropriate hardware.

If you live in a small apartment or home, you’ll also want to take storage space into consideration. The Olee Sleep 14-inch Heavy Duty Steel Slat Bed Frame leaves 13-inches of space underneath for storing everything from photo albums to your wedding dress.

The type of mattress you plan to use with the bed frame is also important. There are styles of bed frames that work with memory foam, traditional spring and hybrid mattresses. Additionally, most frames can handle a box spring. Not all bed frames are designed for both a box spring and a mattress.

Review the product label for the words “noise-free.” You don’t want to spend good money on a bed frame that creaks every time you roll over in the middle of the night. Instead of falling right back to sleep, you’ll be jolted awake.

Finally, check to see how easy or complex the bed frame is to assemble. Some models require the use of your own tools, while others don’t need any tools at all. If you have a handyman in your home, this may not be an issue.

DYWM Fun Fact

Beds were originally constructed to keep people off of the ground while they slept so that bugs and rodents wouldn’t crawl on them. Beds have evolved significantly over time, being made from straw and animal skins in the early days and cloth filled with wool or feathers around 200 BC.

It wasn’t until the 18th century that mattresses were made with cotton. It was also during that time that the first mattress pads were created. The first box springs were made from woven rope.

The Guinness World Records Book lists the Netherlands as having the largest bed ever constructed. It was 86 ft. 11 in. long and 53 ft. 11 in. wide.

It is estimated that humans spend at least one-third of their lives sleeping in bed, which makes choosing the right bed seem much more important.

The Bed Frame Buying Guide

  • Check to see whether the company backs its bed frame with a warranty. The warranty may be whole or limited. If it’s limited, make sure you understand what repairs are covered before you make a purchase.
  • Most bed frames are made of metal and can be wiped down with a wet cloth to remove accumulated dust. You’ll also want to do this if you ever need to fold up and store the frame, such as during a move or to set aside for when company visits.
  • If your metal frame has any rust spots, brush the rust off with steel wool. Afterward, coat the area with a sealant.
  • When storing a bed frame, it is important to wrap it in some kind of blanket. Moving blankets are ideal for this. Not only does this protect the frame, but it also keeps the metal frame from scratching anything else in your garage or storage unit.
  • Not all bed frames are ideal for all mattress types. Before you select a frame, make sure you know it will accommodate the type of mattress you plan to buy. Additionally, not all bed frames are capable of being attached to a headboard. If you plan to use a headboard, check to see what hardware, if any, is needed to get the job done.
  • If you ever need to move your bed around the room due to a remodel, consider using a set of sliding discs under the feet. These discs protect your flooring, while making it a cinch to push the bed into a new position.
