Did you know that humans spend one third of their life asleep? That’s a lot of time spent in bed so it’s important to make sure you have a comfortable one!
From divans and ottomans to wooden frames and metal headboards, there are so many different styles of bed frame to pick from that it can be hard to know which to go for. If it’s time to replace your bed frame, read our quick guide to find out your options and get help choosing your perfect frame.
A great headboard can set the tone for your entire bedroom so it’s important to have a good idea of the style you’re trying to achieve before you make your decision.
Think about the size and colour of your headboard. Do you need something small that won’t overwhelm your space or do you want something dramatic to act as a focal point in the room? Think about colours and textures too; a soft, traditional headboard can be both extremely comfortable and endlessly luxe. Alternatively, a textured headboard in neutral tones will complement and highlight other raw and natural materials in your space, creating the perfect light and airy Scandi-style bedroom.
Hard-wearing and contemporary, metal frames come in all shapes and sizes to suit all manner of interiors. You can go for sleek and industrial frames in geometric shapes to suit a modern bedroom or pretty wrought iron bed frames for a softer, more traditional feel.
Metal bed frames work especially well in small bedrooms as they create a feeling of spaciousness around the bed. They are also durable and long-lasting, making them excellent value for money. Make sure you go for a high-quality metal frame though, as badly made versions can be so creaky they might disrupt your sleep.
One of the most popular and traditional styles of bed frames, a divan bed is comfortable and supportive – ideal if you have trouble sleeping or tend to suffer from any aches and pains in the night.
The best thing about divans is that they’re very versatile. You can choose from lower styles if you have a small bedroom and want your frame to take up less space, or higher styles if you need a little extra help getting in and out of bed.
Just like wooden floors, wooden bed frames are fantastic at making a room feel light, bright, and warm. And with so many different types of wood, textures, grains, and finishes to choose from, you can make your wooden bed frame completely unique.
Wood is durable and long-lasting, especially if you choose a bed frame made from oak or other hardwoods. It’s also easy to maintain. Wooden bed frames can be buffed, polished, or even stained for an entirely new look over time. Wood is recyclable, too – making it an eco-friendly choice for sustainable homes.
Looking for something a little softer and more luxurious for your bedroom? Fabric bed frames can feel more comfortable than other styles and are especially suited to bedrooms with chic and sophisticated styling.
When it comes to choosing your material, the world is your oyster. Soft, velvet bed frames can make your room look and feel sumptuous. Bright fabric bed frames are also a great way to add a pop of colour to a plain space.
Got a small bedroom with limited storage? Or just far too many clothes? Investing in a storage bed is a great way to make the most of the space in your bedroom.
Like a divan, storage beds are usually fairly tall and supportive. However, storage bed frames maximise the under-bed space with drawers or compartments you can access using an easy lifting mechanism. Storage beds can be a little more expensive than other frames but, considering you’re essentially getting two types of furniture in one, can work out as more cost-effective than buying a bed and extra storage separately.
