How to choose the right bed

When shopping for your bed frame and other cheap bed deals, it’s important to make the right choices for your household’s needs. There’s the size of the room to consider, the size of the bed (king, queen, full, twin, or twin XL), the look and decor of the room, and if you’ve got more than one child, you may benefit from looking at deals on bunk beds. There’s also the matter of personal preference: Would you rather have an adjustable, metal, or wooden bed frame? There are factors to reflect on for each category.

Consider the size of the room

It is recommended that you measure your room and the area where your bed will be, adding on a few inches for the bed frame (and headboard/footboard, if they’re included) before you get it. Is there plenty of room (2 or 3 feet?) around the edges of each side where you’ll want to move around? (You can forget about the side where the headboard meets the wall, of course). You don’t want the bed to dominate the room more than necessary. If there isn’t enough room, consider a different bed frame. There are normally lots of deals on beds by size if you enter the proper search criteria. Here are a few other basic points to consider on each type of bed frame:

Adjustable bed frames

Adjustable bases are great for many reasons. Folks with problems like snoring, acid reflux, or various types of body pain can benefit tremendously from having an adjustable frame. Challenges can arise when it’s time to move the bed due to the weight of adjustable bases, however, and they can also break down — which may end up resulting in a costly repair. You should also double-check your mattress to make sure it works with an adjustable base. If not, you may need to spend more money on a new mattress. Try to find a bed deal that includes the best deal for beds and frames together if this is the case.

Metal bed frames vs. wooden frames

Metal bed bases have a few advantages over wood and vice versa.  Metal frames, for instance, are often lighter and easier to maneuver, while wood can be heavier but also add more character to the room. Wood bases usually offer more options for customization but are also more expensive. Metal is usually bug and water-resistant, while wood is quieter, more eco-friendly, and recyclable. Wheels are often available on either type if they are heavy or difficult to transport.

As you shop for the best deals on your bed frame, keep these points in mind and be sure to take and keep track of any measurements you need to consider when choosing the right size base.
