Ideally, a person should spend almost a third of their life asleep in bed. That works out to one year in three, and makes choosing a bed one of the more important decisions anyone can make. Every bed starts with a frame; it keeps the mattress off the floor and determines the style of the bed and the room. This is especially important with a king bed, because the larger the bed, the more it dominates the bedroom. Another thing to consider is what kind of frame to get. Wood is a great option because it is stylish, strong and durable. Choosing a wooden king bed frame brings a balance of style and strength to any bedroom in a single element.
There are three main things to consider when choosing a new bed frame: size, style, and material. While style is often a matter of personal taste, there are many objective reasons to choose a particular size or material. At 180 by 200 cm, a king bed provides enough room for all but the tallest people to stretch out in complete comfort. As for choosing a wooden frame , while this type can be dearer than metal, wooden beds are often smoother with no sharp edges, unlike metal bed frames . Wood is strong and ages well, keeping its style and value for years, with only minimal maintenance. Weight can be an issue, wooden king bed frames can be hard to move, but that very weight helps provide unparalleled durability.
All king bed frames are big, but some look bigger than others. Choosing the right one is about matching the perceived size of the bed to the size of the room, and finding a frame to fit the style of the room. Bed buyers are often concerned about width and length, but for many, height is even more important. The height of the bed determines how easy it is to get up, and while the mattress plays a part, it is impossible to underestimate the importance of the bed frame.
One thing to pay particular attention to is the difference between king beds and king singles, as they are in no way interchangeable. Other things to look for are the presence or absence of storage, as well as the colour and type of wood. Wood can also be coloured, whether with leather or fabric, making it that much easier to match any taste or style.
The frame also works with the mattress to influence how a person sleeps. Each bed frame supports the mattress or box spring in its own way, and these differences affect how it feels to the person lying on top of it. Solid bases are generally more rigid than slats, providing a firmer base for everything to rest on. Different kinds of wooden slats have different characteristics, with some kinds of wood being springier or firmer than others. Choosing the right base can make the difference between a good night's sleep and a night spent tossing and turning even if the mattress is the same. The thing to remember is that comfort comes from the bed as a whole, not just the mattress or bed frame. Buyers should match both frame and mattress to their sleeping preferences.
A platform bed frame consists of three main components: the base, legs, and headboard. They offer a wide variety of styles to fit any room, or decor. One advantage of choosing a platform frame is that they often include the headboard, making it that much easier to find a complete unit. Buyers can also choose between solid platform bases and slats, to help ensure a comfortable night's sleep based on their preferences. Some frames even come with arched slats for better overall support. There are different styles, from leather-covered platform frames to frames that show the natural wood. In either case, the frames offer all the strength and durability of wood.
Another popular kind of wooden bed frame offers storage underneath the mattress. While some smaller beds have the entire top and mattress that lifts to access the storage, this is not practical for the larger sizes such as the king bed frame. Instead, large beds tend to have drawers underneath the frame, reclaiming space that would otherwise go unused. These designs combine the size and comfort of a king bed with the flexibility of under-bed storage. One thing to consider, though, is that these bed frames may be higher than others in order to provide the storage space. This may not be an issue for those buyers of average height and above, but shorter people may find this kind of bed less practical.
