bboc. Bed Frames. August 31st , 2017.
Choice. Wooden bed frames come in many different styles varying from the sophisticated, antique to the traditional and contemporary. But the biggest benefit in choice is down to the colour and finish of the wood. Not only is there the type of wood to choose from, between the softwood’s and hardwood’s, but also the colour and finish applied to the that of the wood itself.
However! If you live with a partner who is gifted with a height that unfortunately is far taller than yours, or that falls a tad short, then you have a couple options. A tall bed (with a handy step that blends nicely in the bedroom décor) can give you a sense of opulence and regality whereas a short bed can make you feel grounded. The Japanese have been fans of low beds for centuries, in fact they’ve gone as far as creating the ‘Shikibuton’, a traditional bed that almost becomes the floor, it’s meant to connect the spirit to nature, but be careful if you have a bad back!
Strength. Wooden bed frames can often come with a long guarantee due to the robustness of the construction. The strength and long lasting nature of the structure and method of construction allow for a wooden bed frame to last indefinitely. Especially those that utilise ‘mortise and tenon’ joints which provide an exceptionally strong joint at the often weakest point, being where the side rail connects to the leg. Get Laid Beds provide an 11-year guarantee on all beds to prove this.
What Type Of Bed To Choose? When you shop around for a bed, the bed frame is just as important as the mattress. You will find that the most common materials used in manufacturing bed frames are wood and metal. However, if you want to invest more on the mattress than the bed frame, you can opt for metal bed frames instead. Metal bed frames are much more simple, sleek and stylish and they are also cheaper. You can also have a headboard and footboard attached for added style. These bed frames are available in different sizes and they usually come in casters or wheels. For large bed frames, metal slats are included in their construction to provide extra support for the mattress and raised edges to prevent the mattress from moving or sliding off.
Often a pine (Softwood) bed frame construction will be stained to show off the natural timber grain, or alternatively, a solid colour can be applied for a completely different appearance such as a modern white or matt black. Choosing a hardwood bed finish allows for a richer appearance, with the oak, cherry or walnut as examples providing a natural attractive deep oscillating grain which can also be matched against other furniture you may have in the bedroom.
