7 Tips for Choosing the Right Bed Frame

February 7, 2023   By Clarisa Mcdonald

Choosing the right bedframe is an essential part of creating a comfortable and functional bedroom space. A good bedframe doesn’t only provide the necessary support for your mattress but also complements your room decor and your personal style. Remember, the style of bed you choose becomes the focal point of your bedroom, so don’t treat it like any random piece of furniture.

With so many options available, like platform beds, sleigh beds, canopy beds or traditional bed frames, it can be a bit of a challenge to determine the right choice for your needs. In this guide, we will provide tips to help you choose the perfect bed frame. By following this buying guide, you can begin to feel confident in your choice and enjoy a comfortable, restful sleep every night.

1. Determine Your Budget

Budgeting should be your first step when furniture shopping. This allows you to understand how much you can allocate to buy the furniture you need. With a specific budget or at least a range of what you are willing to spend, you can narrow your search. Additionally, if you don’t set a budget before purchasing, you might purchase something unnecessarily expensive. Do you agree?

If you don’t have an idea as to how much you will budget for a bed frame, compare items at different shops and brand stores online, taking into account furniture price and quality. Try online marketplaces including MyDeal, Kogan or Catch in Australia.

2. Know Your Mattress Size!

Always choose a bedframe that is the right size for your mattress. It’s essential to select a bedframe that matches the dimensions of your existing mattress, whether it’s a single bed, queen-size bed, king-size, or a California king bed. Choosing a bedframe that is too small or too large can create discomfort and a lack of support for your mattress. Make sure to measure your mattress and select a bedframe that matches your mattress’ exact dimensions to ensure a comfortable and secure fit.

This shouldn’t be a problem though if you’re getting a new bed frame together with a new mattress as sizing would be much easier.

3. Find the Right Style

There are plenty of types of bed frames to choose from, whether you’d want to go for an upholstered bed frame with an upholstered headboard or any type of upholstery, or maybe a metal bed frame – it is truly up to you. While we find wooden bed frames to be an option that never goes out of style, upholstered bed frames often add personality.

Ecosa has nice options to choose from – coastal to romantic, scandi to modern minimalist, our new Transcend collection allows you to create your dream sleep sanctuary. Explore classic and contemporary bed designs in stylish colours and high-quality, durable fabrics.

4. Choose the Right Material for Your Sleeping Space

When selecting a bedframe, consider the material it’s made of, as it can affect the durability, comfort, and maintenance of your sleeping space.

Bedframes can be made from various materials, such as wood, metal, or upholstered fabric. Solid wood bedframes are classic and durable, while metal bedframes are lightweight and give a modern look. Upholstered bed frames, on the other hand, offer a comfortable and stylish option but may require more maintenance and cleaning.

Consider the pros and cons of each material and choose the one that best fits your sleeping space’s needs and your personal style.

5. Consider Design Details

When selecting a bedframe, consider the design details of your bed as it can make a difference in the style and functionality of your sleeping space and the interior design of your room. It varies depending on the use of the room. Are you using it for the guest room, your kid’s room, or maybe your teenager’s newly renovated bedroom? Will you also be coupling it with bedroom furniture?

Four-poster bed frames offer an elegant and classic look with decorative posts at the corners that can be draped with curtains or fabric for added privacy. Platform bed frames, on the other hand, offer a sleek and modern look, with a low profile and clean lines. There are also a wide variety of bedhead trends and footboards to choose from.

By taking the time to consider design details, you can ensure that your bedframe not only provides the necessary support for your mattress but also enhances the style and atmosphere of your sleeping space.

6. Factor Storage Space

Choosing a storage bed frame is an excellent way to maximize your bedroom space and stay organized. When selecting a bed frame with built-in storage, consider the type and amount of storage available. Platform bed frames and captain’s bed frames often include drawers or shelving built into the frame, providing ample storage space for your belongings.

Another important factor to consider is whether the bed frame provides enough space for the storage you need. Be sure to measure the space and dimensions of your room and your storage needs to ensure you choose the right bed frame size and storage capacity. By including built-in storage in your bed frame, you can keep your bedroom organized and free from clutter.

Alternatively, you can also go for bed frames with higher bed heights so that you can keep boxes, bins, and other storage organizers under your bed and out of sight.

Match your Bed Frame with Queen Size Mattresses or King Size Mattresses

7. Check the Sturdiness

When selecting a bed frame, it’s important to choose a sturdy and reliable base that can support your mattress and weight without bending or breaking. A bed base made of solid wood is an excellent option that provides superior support and durability.

Solid wood bed frames are less likely to warp or crack over time, ensuring a long-lasting and comfortable sleeping experience. By choosing a sturdy bed base, you are choosing the best bed frame that will allow you to enjoy maximum support and a restful night’s sleep.

Ecosa’s bed frames are all made from solid American Ash Timber, the same wood used in baseball bats in the professional leagues, guaranteeing a robust and high-quality material for your bed base. This also comes with a 5-year warranty to give you peace of mind for the years to come!
