A bed frame is not only a place for the mattress to call home. A stylish bed frame can be the focal point of your bedroom decor and adds potential storage space. Below are given tips that will help to choose the perfect bed frames Adelaide for the bed that will look great for years. 

Weigh The Size Of The Mattress 

If you have a mattress which you love, selecting a bed frame becomes a bit easier. If you have a full-size mattress you want a double bed frame. If you have a queen size mattress, you want to look at a queen size frame. Make sure you know whether the king-size mattress is California king or Eastern King as they are a little different. A bed frame that fits one might not fit with the other. If you are buying your entire bed set from scratch, consider how much room you have for a bed and what size of bed makes you feel most comfortable. 

Measure The Room Size 

A bed is a large piece of furniture in any bedroom and a large bed overpowers a small room. Put the mattress on the floor to get  sense of its size or use pillows or masking tape to measure it. If you find that you feel cramped, go for a simple metal bed frame under your box spring to maximize the space in your bedroom. A simple platform bed frame may also be a space saving option and you can even expand the storage options by choosing a bed that offers process under the box spring or shelves in the headboard.

Choose Between Platform Bed And Box Spring 

With many platform beds, you need a mattress and no box spring. This makes purchasing platform beds a wise choice for many shoppers watching their budget. Some platform beds can accommodate a box spring if you like the bed a little higher off the ground. Selection between platform bed and box spring is a question of firmness for some, with many people preferring the hard foundation that many platform beds provide. 

Match Your Decorating Style 

Because the bed is the focal point of any bedroom, selecting the right style is paramount. If you want to create a warm and welcoming comfortable feel, you may like to opt for a wooden bed frame piling up quilts and pillows to set a cozy mood. Those who prefer a modern look should select a bed frame of metal or wood with clean minimalist lines. Once you have figured out what styles will fit in your bedroom, take a look at different models, including upholstered bed frames, sleigh beds, wrought iron beds, and brass beds to find what fits you best. 

Double Up For Guest Rooms And Kid’s Rooms 

When furnishing a kid’s room or guest room, you have more options. Consider a daybed for the guest room, so you can use this place as a home office or crafting room when you do not have guests. A trundle bed works well for both overnight guests and kids sleepovers and bunk beds are another handy, space-saving option for kids. 


If you desire the drama of a more elaborate bed frame, like a four-poster or a canopy bed, aim your tape measure towards the ceiling. A  tall bed frame requires a high ceiling, as a large bedroom can start to feel cramped. Do little extra measurement if you prefer a bulky bed frame. Keep in mind that you may have to disassemble and reassemble larger beds to get them through the bedroom door and make sure that’s possible with your chosen frame.
