Metal Beds and Bedsteads

Sleek, clean and classy, metal bed frames are popular among modern and traditional bedrooms alike. Also referred to as a metal bedstead, metal beds are favoured due to their winning combination of sturdiness and style. A metal bed is a trendy accompaniment to all home decor, complementing furniture and decorations of all types.

Black metal bed frames

An ebony metal bedstead can be a real statement to base your room around. Creating a dark and dramatic bedroom design, black metal beds bring maturity and dynamism to your decor. An attention-grabbing style, black metal bed frames command authority in the centre of a room and can contrast well with a variety of colour schemes.

To prevent overcrowding, it’s important to include shades of light around the room here and there, although that doesn’t mean dark designs should be avoided completely. Metal black bed frames provides a neural tint which can work well with wooden furniture and richly coloured pieces. Offering a spectacular finish to any bedroom, a black metal bed is stately and grand, creating a real sense of atmosphere.

White metal bed frames

On the other end of the spectrum, white metal bed frames create an airy, light and natural feel. For areas where space is at a premium, such as studio apartments or spare bedrooms, a white metal bed can really open the room up.

Combining function and fashion, light tones, such as ivory metal bed frames, create the illusion of space, maximising the area and preventing overcrowding. A stark and bright white metal bad enhances a sense of cleanliness, helping to create a neat and tidy bedroom environment.

White beds are also effective at bringing out other tones in the room. The subtle shade illuminates the colours of other elements of the room, such as bedding, curtains and furniture, adding vibrancy which contrasts well with vivid white. An alternative to more traditional bed colours, a white metal bed frame adds a truly modern touch a bedroom, offering a rich and sleek finish. A stylish choice as a bedroom’s centrepiece, our white metal beds are as strong as they are fashionable.

Rose gold metal bed frames

The new kid on the bedroom decor scene, rose gold bed frames have recently emerged as a stylish alternative to the more extreme white and black colour schemes. The chic gold bed frame style works will with neutral and light decor, with white-washed walls and bright furniture a common accompaniment.

For the daring designers, pale pinks, aqua blues and light grey fabrics can help bring out the shine of the gold bed frame, improving its vibrancy. If you’re looking for a stylish metal bed frame which gives character to a neutral bedroom, rose gold beds are the way to go.

What types of metal bed frames are there?

There are a variety of metal bed frames to choose from, from children’s beds through to super kings that would look great in a master bedroom. Single metal beds are ideal for guest rooms or for older children, while double metal bed frames work well in almost any standard size bedroom. 

Why choose a metal bed frame?

Metal bed frames have been used for hundreds of years and today are still hugely popular, thanks to their strength, durability and charming design features. Robust enough to cope with anything, they last for years and are easy to maintain, too. Children’s metal bed frames can be decorated in your kid’s current favourite colour and, if they change their mind a week later, can easily be transformed to suit their new choice! 

What mattress can I buy with a metal bed frame?

You can buy any type of mattress to go with a metal bed frame. The most important thing to remember is that you buy the right size for your bed, so to paraphrase an old trade saying, “Measure twice, buy once!”. As metal bed frames often have slatted bases, it’s worth taking a look at our guide on How to Choose a Mattress for a Slatted Bed Frame, which will give you plenty of great tips on which type of mattress to choose. And remember, all of our metal bed frames benefit from free delivery, making a statement design feature even more affordable. 

Are metal bed frames bad for you?

Some people believe that metal bed frames have two weak spots – poor support, and creakiness. Let’s bust that ‘poor support’ myth first. Metal frames provide outstanding support and are extremely strong, so they won’t sag over time. Despite the fact that the base is considerably thinner than, for example, a divan, it still provides you with the same rigidity and firm feel. Most metal bed frames have a slatted base, which eliminates that sagging feeling completely. Team it up with the right mattress and you’re guaranteed a great night’s sleep. Secondly, that creaking problem. Very old metal bedsteads can get a bit creaky eventually, but it takes a very long time for that to become a real problem. However, modern metal bed frames are usually powder coated, which avoids source of the creaking – metal rubbing against metal. If you do notice the occasional squeak then the best thing to do is go around the bed and check that all the bolts are secure and done up tightly. That should get rid of any creaking instantly. 

What size metal bed frame do I need?

From kitting out a kid’s bedroom, to designing a spacious and luxurious master bedroom, our range of fashionable metal beds cater to all needs. There’s a full spectrum of metal bed frame sizes available, tailoring your steel bed frame to the specific dimensions of your room.

The robust nature of metal bed frames makes them ideally suited to children’s rooms. Single metal beds are the ideal size for these smaller living areas, as well as spare bedrooms. Standard sized rooms with a bit more breathing space are a good fit for our small double and double metal bed frames.

For master bedrooms, and more deluxe areas, king and super king size metal bed frames offer the ultimate in grandeur and comfort. When choosing which metal bed size is right for your room, it all comes down to how much space you have. To match the dimensions to your bedroom, our helpful bed size guide will set you down the right track.
