Choosing the right bed frame for your latex or spring mattress

Choosing the right bed frame for your latex or spring mattress

Getting a good sleep has just as much to do with the setting as the state of mind going into the dream zone. In other words, your sleep space set up is an important component of sleeping well.

And it’s not only the type of sheets, pillows, and mattress that are important to think about. So is the type of bed frame. Maybe you’ve noticed your bed frame beginning to squeak or wobble, or perhaps you’ve just invested in a nice new latex mattress. Whatever the case, a bed frame has a specific set of variables to consider. To make things a little simpler, let’s go over the type of bed frame you might need for either your latex or spring mattress.

Here are the most important things to think about:

Height

The standard height of a bed from is about seven inches tall. Depending on the design, this might be too high or too low to get in and out of bed.

Some bed frames raise the height of the mattress more than a person might be comfortable with. It depends on their mobility. If a person has issues climbing in and out of bed, or you are purchasing a bed frame for a small child, you will want to take some careful measurements before you make a purchase.

Support

Remember that you get what you pay for. Be wary of bed frame designs that use flimsy materials and that don’t have enough cross section support. These won’t last the test of time and will need to be replaced, and a poor quality bed frame can cause more wear and tear to your mattress.

Size

Beyond choosing a bed frame that fits a specific type of mattress, there is a difference between a bed frame for a grown adult and a kid about to go through a growth spurt. For the latter case, you might want to invest in an adjustable bed frame that can easily transform from a single to a double- or queen- size. You’ll save money in the long run and it will be much more convenient to replace only the mattress when the time comes.

Aesthetic

This is the fun part — there are countless styles of bed frames to choose from. You can opt for one with storage drawers for a multi-functional frame or one with a sleek design for something simplistic. Plus you can add on an interesting headboard and a footboard to complete the look. Vintage, custom-made, reclaimed wood, four post fairytale, ultra-modern…you can let your imagination go wild and find the bed frame of your dreams.

Mobility

If you are the kind of person who likes to switch up the layout of your bedroom, you’ll definitely want to consider the type of bed frame you purchase. You can still choose one that is high quality and sturdy but also light, or one that has wheels to make it easier to move around the room.

Flooring

Beds and bed frames can do a lot of damage to the floor beneath, so you will want to be mindful of what’s underneath the bed. If your bed frame is heavy, be sure to have a buffer between the bed frame feet and the floor, especially if it is nice wood or expensive carpeting. You can buy glides designed specifically for bed frames to protect your flooring.
