Slats

ow1169-poWhen buying a bed frame, consider the slats that come with it. As these provide the support to your mattress, you need to make sure the slats are designed to last too. The wider the distance between the slats, the less likely you’ll get many years of use and comfort from your bed frame as they are more likely to wear and tear your mattress. Look for slats that have a slight bend and a natural bounce that can absorb your natural nightly movement. The harder the slats, the firmer your bed will feel; so the decision is ultimately up to you and how much spring you want in your bed frame.

Packaging

Don’t make the mistake of buying your bed frame only to find that it doesn’t fit through the door, can’t make it in the elevator or won’t bend around the right corners of your home. All our bed frames come flat packed for easy transportation with minimal assembly required before you have your next favourite bed frame set up in your bedroom.

Maintenance

Looking after your bed and mattress will mean that you’re able to enjoy them for years and decades to come. To properly care for your new bed set, check the legs and tighten them every six months or so. If you tighten the bolts on a bed frame every six months, you will avoid your bed becoming loose and squeaky.

Buying a new bed frame is a big decision, if you buy a high quality frame you should have it for years! Think carefully about style as well as sturdiness and feel free to ask lots of questions!
