A Buyer’s Guide to Metal Bed Frames
Along with other materials, metal has always been a natural choice for home furniture and beds are no exception. They are really popular in the market both because of their durability and functionality and are available in a wide choice of styles, colours and options.
We understand that it sometimes gets a bit difficult to identify the right bedframe for you, that’s why we put together this handy guide to make sure you shop for your bed with all the options in mind and get the best value for your money.
Metal is the most popular material used in the construction of day beds. This type of bed consists of two side panels and one back panel made of metal rods and almost always comes in a single size. Usually found in living rooms, the most popular day bed frames employ Victorian style so they are a perfect way to add a unique and stylish look to any living room.
Metal bunk beds are a good choice for kids and small bedrooms. Classic bunk beds consist of two twin bedsteads sitting atop one another, but there are slight variations, including those with a wide bottom bunk. A normal bunk bed will take as much as room as a traditional single bed and can be up to 170cm high but you would need to check the measurements to avoid the top sleeper bump their head on the ceiling every morning.
Guest bed frames are a great solution if you have guests occasionally but do not have space for another bed. A metal guest bed like any other type of bed frame comes in many different shapes to suit any bedroom configuration. A guest bed in metal is a piece of furniture that will bring a modern look to your bedroom décor.
You can choose your metal bed in a choice of different finishes from brass and chrome metal through to gloss and painted metal. Since metal bed frames are available in a variety of finishes they offer many more possibilities when it comes to styles. Each finish will often offer a different look to your bedstead. Wrought iron for example tends to be used for classic looking beds since this is a very malleable metal which makes swirls and ornate designs easy. Metal bedsteads in bronze and brass finishes are particularly suitable for antique styles beds.
One of the main advantages of metal in terms of interior décor is that it can be painted any colour whatever the finish is. With the option of colours and finishes, metal beds are great if you are looking for a new bedstead for your kid.
Metal bed frames either come with rigid flat slats or a sprung bed base. A slatted base is the most common mattress support system and provides a firmer feel to the bed. If a traditional slatted base doesn’t quite match your comfort criteria you can go for a sprung edge bed base that will give you extra comfort. A flexible sprung bed base is designed to work in conjunction with the mattress and adjusts to the body’s profile better than a flat slatted base.
