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.

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.
