How to Choose a Bed / Bed Frame
As the focal point of the bedroom, beds create the mood for your space. When you're shopping for a new bed, find one that fits your room and lifestyle, while matching your decor and budget. Whether you're in the market for an upgrade, a bigger bed for your child, or you need a place for guests to sleep, you're going to want to think about size, style, and material.
Size & Budget Tips
Because beds are the largest and most used piece of furniture in your bedroom, you should be prepared to make an investment. The dimensions of your room, whether you'll be sleeping alone, and how much space you need to be comfortable determine what bed size you need. Also, take into account how long you expect this bed to last, as the higher quality and longer-lasting pieces cost more. The stronger and sounder beds can stay with you for years and pay for themselves over time.
Picking a Bed Style
Some classic bedframe styles include platform, poster, canopy, sleigh, and daybeds. Each offers functionality while also allowing room for creativity. Platform beds rest directly on the floor, making them the perfect alternative to purchasing a foundation. Canopy beds bring a touch of elegance to bedrooms with their flowing drapery. For a traditional look, you can add either a poster or sleigh bed. Daybeds make beautiful lounging pieces and are convenient for guest rooms and dens. For additional storage, try beds with built-in bookcases or pull-out drawers.
Choosing the Color of your Bed
Wood-finished bed frames came in a variety of colors. Appealing light tones, such as honey or birch, fit in with modern decor. Dark reds and deep browns work well with traditional designs. Metal frames are versatile because they can be painted in various colors, like white, black, teal, taupe, or cream. Additionally, children's bed colors can reflect fun and charming themes, such as sport teams or movie characters.
Selecting the Material
When choosing the material of your bed, consider longevity, cost, and style. Bed frames are made from either wood or metal. For a more natural or rustic look, as well as durability, choose wood. Metal offers comparable strength and is also long-lasting and cost efficient. Both wood and metal can be upholstered to create a softer look and match any existing furniture.
