Finding The Right Bed Frame

Finding The Right Bed Frame

Bed frames and bases are more than a place for your mattress to call home – they are invaluable furnishing that can, not only, provide invaluable support but enhance the look and feel of a space.

But with so many finishes, colours and types to choose from, finding the right bed frame can be challenging. In this post, we will outline the top factors to consider when looking for the right bed for your room.

Why You Should Choose The Right Frame?

There are a number of reasons why a bed frame should be a key consideration when searching for bedding. Some of these reasons include:

They provide an extra layer of support to your mattress, which is crucial for preventing damage caused by sagging and indentations 

A quality frame can last a lifetime – meaning that you will get years of use from a good quality bed

Promotes better health and sleep

Adds style and sophistication

Types of Bed Frames

The hunt for the perfect bed frame can be almost as challenging as finding the mattress itself. Understanding the choices you have can help in your search.


A traditional bed frame consists of head, foot, and side rails that reinforces the mattress on all sides. This is a versatile style that comes in a range of colours, sizes and configurations, allowing it to suit a range of spaces.


A platform base is a mattress foundation that has is covered with fabric. A platform bed has no added bells and whistles. It is a simple, clean-lined design that is practical for any bedroom setting. These bases offer a firmer, feeling and provide suitable support for all mattress types. 

What To Consider When

Now that you have a good understanding of the bed frame options, here are some key things to consider when choosing your new bed. 

Size Of Mattress

Mattresses come in all different sizes, so it’s important to consider the mattress dimensions before you choose a frame. Beds are available in standard, single, double or queen and king size. Ensure your frame is wide enough to accommodate the size of your mattress.

Size of Room

The size of your room will also impact the bed frame you choose. For example, a large bedroom can accommodate a queen bed base or larger while smaller rooms might do well with a single bed. 


Different rooms call for different styles of bed. For example, a room with minimalist decor would do well with a simple and clean-lined design. A bedroom with ornate furniture and styling might require a bolder looking bed to compliment the space.

Who is Using the Bed

This is also an important consideration when choosing your bed. Single beds are better for children or people sleeping alone, whereas larger beds such as King and Queen-size bed bases are better suited for couples. There is a range of different bed sizes, so you can also choose the size that will suit your needs best.
