Metal Bed Frame
When it comes to decorating a bedroom, the bed is the focal point of the space. After all, it’s where you do all your sleeping and relaxing, and it is what will attract the eye when you enter the room. Because the bed is so important, it’s also crucial that your mattress has a great foundation.
Enter the metal bed frame. This hidden piece of furniture is what supports your mattress and box spring and allows you to get the sleep you deserve. When it does its job, you won't even notice it’s there −− but it's important to choose the right one for your lifestyle.
We have a vast selection of sturdy metal bed frames for any bed size. Depending on your needs, you can choose between flat feet and wheels for extra mobility, and we even have frames designed to make your mattress and bedding stand out as if they were floating above the floor. No matter what your taste, we have the right metal bed frame for you.
Is a Metal Bed Frame Right for You?
If you like the minimalist look of a simple mattress, a metal bed frame may be all the bed you need. If this is your ideal, choose a display base that provides a baseboard on all four sides of the mattress. This will offer a clean look and keep dust bunnies from gathering under your mattress.
A metal bed frame is also useful for anyone who already owns a headboard, or who wishes to build their own for a totally custom look. Some metal frames can be attached to existing headboards and footboards, while others float freely to imitate the look of a complete bed
Finally, some full wooden bedsteads are designed without a full bottom. These often come with a slatted bottom to support a mattress, but many are designed so that you can simply pop a freestanding metal bed frame inside the wood bed instead. Because a metal bed frame offers superior durability, this is often a great way to keep using an antique bed that no longer has supporting slats.
Metal Bed Frame Dimensions
Before purchasing a metal bed frame, be sure that you choose one designed to fit your mattress. Bed frames come in the same sizes as standard mattress and bed dimensions:
- Twin: 38" x 75"
- Twin XL: 38" x 80"
- Full: 53" x 75"
- Queen: 60" x 80 "
- King: 76" x 80"
- California King: 72" x 84"
The standard bed frame is 7.5 inches high, but you can adjust the height of your bed by taking into consideration the mattress thickness and adding an appropriate box spring or foundation to adjust the final height as desired.
High-Standing Metal Bed Frames
Many metal bed frames are designed in such a way as to leave enough space under the bed for storing short boxes and other items. If you have storage needs and not enough floor space for a dresser or chest, a high metal bed frame is a great option (as compared to wood or fabric bed frames, which are usually built lower to the ground). If you are purchasing a frame for the storage aspect, make sure to find out the exact height of the bottom of the bed (the amount of space between the bottom of the bed and the floor); even among metal bed frames labeled as “high” in dimensions, not all are built with the same dimensions.
Metal Bed Frames in Guest Rooms
Because of their simplicity and affordability, metal bed frames are a great option for guest rooms; leave them bare for a simpler, unassuming bedroom look that will be sure to not rub any guest the wrong way. (Some statement styles in a guest room, such as glam or extremely contemporary, can make a guest feel alienated). If you want to add simple charm, a metal bed frame can easily be decorated with a skirt – this will also hide the space between the frame and floor, if that’s important to you.
Setting Up a Metal Bed Frame
Setting up a metal bed frame is easy. While some designs’ setup instructions vary, the majority will require attachments of the side rails, foot rails and legs. In terms of setting up a usable sleeping space, you will need to ensure that your frame is fit for your mattress (and vice versa); mattress size should match up with frame size, so if you have a King metal bed frame, the mattress should be a King size, as well. Most metal bed frames won’t require a box spring, but double-check just to make sure, as a mattress placed on a box-spring-required frame without a box spring will damage the mattress.
Even if your metal bed frame does not come with casters, chances are that it is easy to move: by design, the profiles of metal bed frames in contrast to upholstered and wood frames are slimmer – making it more convenient when you’re trying to fit the item through narrow doorways and hallways.
Metal Bed Frames: A Summary
Metal bed frames are a great option for supporting a mattress, ensuring it fully supported and high enough to comfortably climb into and out of bed. Make sure to fit a Twin metal bed frame with a Twin mattress, Full with a Full and so on. Because of their simple looks and high function, these designs are often a great choice for guest rooms, where incorporating your unique style to match your own personality may not be the best idea if you expect to host different guests with different preferences. (For your own bedroom, an upholstered, wood or even leather frame may be a better option – if the goal is to add higher style.)
Metal bed frames also come with different features: some with wheels, some with an adjustable base (or adjustable base compatibility), some with a higher or lower profile, and some with headboard brackets. Consider all of these features to ensure you are getting the exact frame that meets the functional requirements of the bedroom space you want to create.
Whether you want a metal bed frame for your own bedroom space or a guest’s, you can’t go wrong with any of these designs. Shop the looks today – your purchasing decision is made easier thanks to an affordable range of prices, designs, heights and sizes to choose from.
