Often a pine (Softwood) bed frame construction will be stained to show off the natural timber grain or alternatively a solid colour can be applied for a completely different appearance such as a modern white or matt black. Choosing a hardwood bed finish allows for a richer appearance with the oak cherry or walnut as examples providing a natural attractive deep oscillating grain which can also be matched against other furniture you may have in the bedroom.
What Type Of Bed To Choose? When you shop around for a bed the bed frame is just as important as the mattress. You will find that the most common materials used in manufacturing bed frames are wood and metal. However if you want to invest more on the mattress than the bed frame you can opt for metal bed frames instead. Metal bed frames are much more simple sleek and stylish and they are also cheaper. You can also have a headboard and footboard attached for added style. These bed frames are available in different sizes and they usually come in casters or wheels. For large bed frames metal slats are included in their construction to provide extra support for the mattress and raised edges to prevent the mattress from moving or sliding off.
Reasons Why Your Bed Height Actually Matters. When choosing a new bed it’s easy to prioritise its comfort and design and ignore something as mundane as the height of a bed. However contrary to popular belief bed height is actually pretty important. The height of your mattress in addition to your bed frame can contribute significantly to the look and even function of your bedroom not to mention your overall comfort when getting up every morning. Whether your bed resembles the 20 mattresses in Hans Christian Andersen’s The Princess and the Pea or consists of a measly mattress on the floor its height can significantly affect you.
Strength. Wooden bed frames can often come with a long guarantee due to the robustness of the construction. The strength and long lasting nature of the structure and method of construction allow for a wooden bed frame to last indefinitely. Especially those that utilise ‘mortise and tenon’ joints which provide an exceptionally strong joint at the often weakest point being where the side rail connects to the leg. Get Laid Beds provide an 11-year guarantee on all beds to prove this.
