So, you’ve decided to take the plunge and buy a new bed. Firstly, congratulations as buying a new bed can be quite an exciting purchase. After all a new bed frame can completely change the feel of your bedroom. Indeed, the bed frame is central to the design of your bedroom and therefore it pays to choose a new bed frame wisely. For example, if you want something to express your inner glamour puss then a velvet fabric bed could be just the ticket. Or if you want something that reflects your love of nature then a wooden bed may be more fitting.
Other than style, there are numerous other factors that come into play when you’re looking to choose a new bed frame. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by all the different possibilities, then this blog should give you a helping hand. Here are top 4 tips to help you choose a new bed frame.
The first thing you should determine is what size bed frame you require. If you already have a mattress that you intend to keep, then you will have to pick a bed to suit. If you are unsure what size mattress you have then it’s time to get the tape measure out. Mattress sizes are as follows: -
3ft (Single) 90 cm x 190 cm
4ft (Small Double) 120 cm x 190 cm
5ft (King Size) 150 cm x 200 cm
6ft (Super King) 180 cm x 200 cm
If you’re going the whole shebang and getting everything brand new then the only restrictions are the size of your bedroom. We always recommend getting the biggest size bed that will comfortably fit. However, you need to bear in mind that bed frames are always bigger than the mattress that they house. All external measurements are on our website, so make sure you check these out first.
The next step is to decide what style of bed will be the best for you. Firstly, do you want something traditional or something sleek and contemporary? Do you want a wooden bed, a fabric bed or metal bed? If you’re lacking inspiration, then Pinterest is a great place to get some ideas. Remember a good bed frame can last you a lot of years so it pays to do the leg work.
If extra storage is a key consideration, then you need to filter your options down to beds that come with storage. If you haven’t even thought about the possibility of a storage bed, then decide whether this option would be beneficial to you. We offer two types of storage beds. We have beds with drawers and beds with ottoman storage.
Beds can vary hugely in price and therefore you need to decide what you can comfortably afford. Here at Beds on Legs, we are proud to offer Klarna as a payment option which means you can spread the cost of your new bed frame. Some people prefer to pay for big ticket items like this as it can feel more affordable on a monthly basis.
