If you are furnishing a bedroom in your home, one essential piece is a bed frame. But with so many options to choose from, it can be hard to pick the right one. So, here are some tips to help you make the right choice:
Consider the size of the mattress
Usually, a bed is the largest piece of furniture a person will have in a bedroom. However, if the bed is too big for space, it may cause the room to feel cramped. If you’ve already chosen a mattress, you will need to find an appropriately sized bed frame, but before you purchase your bed frame, take your mattress and place it on the floor in the room where you’d like to position your bed. If that is not an option, you may use masking tape to outline the space the mattress will need. If it already seems like the mattress will be a tight fit, look for a something simple like a metal bed frame. A platform bed frame may also be a good choice if your mattress is taking up a lot of room. With a platform bed frame, you can maximize your storage space by choosing a frame that comes with drawers under the bed frame or shelves on the headboard.
Measure the room
If you have not yet selected a mattress, measure the size of the room to see how much space there is to work with. There is a minimum space recommendation for each bed size. Ideally, you should have at least 7ft x 10 ft if you want to fit a twin bed in a room. If you have 10 ft x 10 ft you will be able to fit two twin beds. A 7 ft x 10 ft room is also recommended for a twin XL which is the same width as a regular twin but slightly longer.
Do you want a full bed? Then you’ll need 10 ft x 12 ft for this bed. For a standard queen—the most popular bed size in the world— a 10 ft x 10 ft room is recommended. A 10 ft x 10 ft room is the minimum recommended size for an Olympic queen as well, while 12 ft x 10 ft is recommended size for a California queen.
If you want maximum sleeping space, then you’ll need a king-sized bed. For a standard king, you should have at least 10 ft x 12 ft. A California king will require at least 12 ft x 12 ft.
Choose between a platform bed frame and a box spring
A box spring is a set of coiled springs that are covered in fabric and placed under a mattress for height and rigidity. A box spring will help to keep your mattress level if you always sleep in the same position. While box springs are usually lightweight, they are still very sturdy. Although there are benefits to having a box spring, it comes with it an additional cost.
Many platform beds require only a mattress and not a box spring. However, they still provide a solid foundation that offers firmness. So, if you are trying to watch your budget, a platform bed frame might be the best option. However, if the price is not a factor, some platform beds can still accommodate a box spring, which is great if you want your bed to be higher off the ground.
Match your style
Since a bed takes up so much space in a room, it automatically becomes a focal point. That is why it is so important that you choose a bed frame that suits your style. Once you have pinpointed the style you want in a room, look at different bed frame models and see which ones match the design you have envisioned. Wooden frames with quilts and pillows will help create a warm and welcoming space. On the other hand, metal frames and even wooden ones with clean, minimalist lines will give you a sleek and modern look.
