When it comes to purchasing a bed frame, finding the type that’s perfect for you is rarely easy. Of course, you start with your mattress, whether spring-based, memory foam or hybrid, a good bed frame can bring it all together. Bed frames are varying in nature often coming in a plethora of colours, materials, types, or potential aesthetics. All of these options can be very overwhelming choices when thrust upon you all at once. Luckily enough we’ve compiled a short selection for you, something to simplify the choices.
Out of all the types of beds, one of the most popular frame styles is the platform bed. Platform bed frames come in a varying range of styles and offer a sleek and low-profile look. You can easily spot a platform bed frame by its flat base. A platform bed is cost-effective and very affordable without additional box springs required. They also allow you to use any kind of mattress you like, however they provide a lot of additional pressure so some side-sleepers may encounter discomfort.
If you’re in need of added luxury then upholstered bed frames might be for you. They’re super comfortable and fit a huge variety of different spaces. Upholstered frames often feature high levels of comfort and soft headboards. Perfect for watching TV or reading in bed. Unfortunately, fabric is simply less durable than steel or wood meaning wear-and-tear is significantly more likely.
The sleigh bed is exactly what it sounds like, a bed that’s shaped like a sleigh, with a high headboard and footboard. This is one of the types of bed frames that has serious style and works in any setting. Sleigh beds come in styles ranging from solid wood designs to upholstered versions with a more streamlined appeal, so you’ll have endless options to choose from. Traditional sleigh beds are made entirely from high-quality solid woods so they tend to be heavy. Modern upholstered versions are lighter, but can still be unwieldy to move.
Also known as a four-poster, the canopy bed has been gaining popularity in recent years with more streamlined and modern designs cropping up in some bed frame circles. Canopy beds can make a room feel immediately cosy thanks to their enveloping design, they stand out in this manner often being the centrepiece of any stylish bedroom. Because of their size and construction, canopy beds will require a good amount of assembly to move in and out of your bedroom, they can prove cumbersome and often of annoyance to some users.
