The Ultimate Metal Bed Guide
There’s lots of information available to help you choose a well-made mattress to suit your body type, sleep patterns and general preferences.
When it comes to bed frames, there’s a misconception that the choice is largely aesthetic. Of course, choosing a bed that looks good and matches your bedroom décor is important! However, there is more to choosing bed frames than simply their appearance.
One of the most popular choices is a metal frame. Whatever size you choose, there are some important things to keep in mind, which is why we've created the ultimate guide to buying a metal bed!
Profile of metal bed frames
Metal bed frames are sometimes referred to as “bedsteads”. They are usually one complete structure, with the frame extending into both a headboard and bed footer.
Within the metal frame, there could be a variety of bases. This includes a metal grid or rigid woven wire base. There are also options to have both solid or sprung slatted bases. It’s up to you which base works best for you. For example, some sleepers enjoy the sturdiness of a solid slatted base. Others want a more flexible sleep solution provided by a sprung slatted base with a degree of “give” to it.
Why is metal such a great choice for beds? Simply put, metal is a strong component that is highly durable, but thanks to creative engineering it can look truly amazing! It’s the reason that metal bed frames have been popular for centuries, and never go out of fashion.
Styles and shape options for metal beds
Metal is such a creative medium, that quality bed manufacturers have found ways to shape it into a wide variety of designs. It offers great personality with its abundant style and finish options. For example, you could select rustic dark metal, or opt for copper, nickel or gold. Some options combine more than one finish for a unique appeal.
This versatility means that metal furniture can look good in conjunction with any interior design theme or general décor, from shabby chic to boutique and industrial. So, don’t just think in terms of classic, vintage metal bed frames and ornate structures. There are metal beds that are modern and unassumingly stunning! This includes minimalist versions for stripped back contemporary bedrooms.
The important thing is to find one that matches your personal style and preferences, with the right level of support for the sort of sleep experience you are seeking.
Different bed, different room
Metal lends itself not just to a variety of finishes and styles, but also to variation in sizes of bed.
The fact they are sturdy and durable makes single metal bed frames a great addition to a child’s bedroom. They can take a lot of wear and tear by your cherubs! However, the elegance and sophistication you get from choosing metal for your frame means they also look very much “at home” in master bedrooms or your guest room too. If you want a super king size bed that looks magnificent, then test our metal!
Modern designers and manufacturers have also created smart and versatile day beds with metal frames. This includes versions that provide comfortable seating, then fold out for a supportive bed. This makes them a fabulous space saving option for apartments or smaller rooms.
More tips on choosing metal for a bed frame
Don’t be fooled into thinking that a metal frame is always strong and reliable. Just as with wood or upholstered bed frames, the manufacturing process and use of quality components are crucial. Cheaper versions don’t stand the test of time and can quickly look tarnished, as well as bowing and breaking too easily.
A well-made metal bed frame is resilient and should last you for decades, continuing to provide slumber support at the same high level.
When buying, take accurate measurements of the room space available. Assuming a double bed would fit in your bedroom is fine, but keep in mind that the dimensions of a metal frame could have an impact. This can be particularly important for king-sized frames and mattresses. Make sure the king sized bed’s “footprint” will leave enough space for you to easily open the bedroom and wardrobe doors, or your drawers for example.
Also, keep in mind that whatever size of bed you are shopping for, the finish of the metal could be significant. Darker metal beds (such as black) can make a dramatic statement in your bedroom, drawing the eye to the craftsmanship. However, they can look a little overwhelming in smaller bedrooms, where lighter metal frames (such as white) provide a reflective value that gives the illusion of more space.
