While a mattress and box spring will influence the quality of someone's sleep, the bed frame is the centerpiece of the room's decor and will have the greatest effect on the bedroom's look and feel.
In addition to stylistic considerations, finding the perfect bed frame requires one to think about any practical requirements, such as storage space or child-friendly features. Whether you’re in the market for a twin bed or a platform bed with storage, here’s how to find the right frame.
Which Size Is Right?
After your child has outgrown the crib, tuck them into a toddler bed or a mattress with a low twin-size bed frame with a rail for safety.
A full bed will accommodate older kids and fast-growing teens. For a bed that grows with your child, consider an adjustable bed frame, which can be altered to support mattresses from twin up to king-size.
A full-size bed frame fits two adults, but leaves each with only 27 inches of space, so a queen-size bed frame is a more popular choice for couples.
Another option is a king-size mattress, which measures 76 inches wide by 80 inches long, or you can get added length (84 inches) with a little less width (72 inches) in a California king.
Which Style Is Right?
While browsing bed frames for sale, keep the room in mind. For a small room, consider a simple metal bed frame, queen-size platform bed or even a platform bed with storage to maximize space. A tall, bulky headboard might be overwhelming, so look for slender silhouettes. A taller bed looks more imposing and formal, while a lower bed frame opens up a smaller room and presents a more relaxed atmosphere.
As the focal point of the bedroom, the bed frame will set the tone. Want a moody aura? Try a dark bed frame. In a contemporary home, go with a sleek modern bed frame. Prefer a rustic style? Look at beds for sale made of reclaimed wood.
No matter what bed frame style or size you are looking for, it can be located when you choose from The Home Depot’s wide selection of assorted bed frames.
