Bed Frames Buying Guide

When you’re buying new furniture for your bedroom, you want it to be on-point and stylish. Your bed is no different, which is why it’s just as important to get the right look. 

Whether you’re looking for vintage chic or contemporary minimalism, we offer an array of different styles and designs, so you can find your perfect match.

Tips for finding the perfect bed frame

Before buying a new bed frame, keep the following things in mind to make sure you’re fully-prepared:

  • Size matters. Make sure you check how much space you have in your bedroom - the difference between a double and a super king might be bigger than you think.
  • Find your style. You’re going to have this bed frame for a long time, so it’s important to find one that suits your personal style.
  • Complement your surroundings. If your room draws in lots of sunlight, natural wood bed frames flourish under the rays, while bold colours work wonders if you have lots of space to play with.
  • Solid or sprung? Choose between a solid or sprung slatted base. Solid slatted bases tend to be firmer, while sprung slatted bases are more responsive.
  • Quality design. You spend a lot of time in bed, so finding a bed frame that’s sturdy and supportive is important to its longevity. Be wary of cheap alternatives that will probably fall-short in both style and function.

Metal bed frames

Metal bed frames

Chic and sophisticated, our metal bed frames are available in both classic and contemporary styles.

We sell black metal bed frames that are ideal for larger rooms because they tend to visually-dominate open spaces, while our light-coloured metal bed frames are perfect for smaller bedrooms as they’re lighter on the eye and give the illusion of spaciousness.
