Choosing a Bed Frame Size
Picking a new bed frame is all about dealing with your existing space. The size of your bed frame affects your bedroom’s dimensions, your original investment and continuous expenses for sheets and bedding. Sheets and bedding for queen and king size beds tend to be pricier, while bedding for a full-size bed or a twin bed is more affordable. Twin beds are best for children or young adults moving away to college, where a larger is ideal for couples, as it offers more room to stretch out and sleep comfortably.
Full or Double Bed Frame
Full beds, or double beds, are 53 inches wide and 75 inches long, although measurements can differ slightly by model. A double mattress fits well on a full or double bed frame that is too small for larger mattresses. A full bed gives the most amount of floor space and helps a small room from feeling crowded.
Queen Size Bed Frame
A queen-size mattress measures 60 by 80 inches and is a perfect fit for a queen bed frame. The spaciousness of a queen bed can make sleeping much more comfortable for larger or agitated sleepers. If your bedroom is large enough for a bigger bed, a queen is an excellent option.
King Size Bed Frame
King-size bed frame models include traditional king and California king. A normal king frame fits a mattress that is 76 by 80 inches. A California king mattress measures 72 by 84 inches, although measurements can change.
Twin Bed Frame
A twin size mattress is 39 inches wide and 74 inches long, a perfect size for a twin bed frame. This is the smallest type of bed frame and is best suited for one person.
How Long Does a Bed Frame Last?
The stability of a bed frame depends on multiple a variety of certain factors. These include:
- The quality of the bed frame.
- How the bed is taken care of by the owner over time.
- What you use the bed frame for aside from sleeping.
- The total weight and amount of users of the bed.
Wood or steel frames can last years if it is used according to the manufacturer’s warranty. Depending on quality, some frame warranties promise 10-year to lifetime coverage. If the frame makes squeaking sounds, it’s time to check the document for coverage details. It may only be an issue of tightening loosened nuts and bolts.
