Looking for Cheap Bed Frames?
To help take some of the confusion out of buying a new mattress, Cheap Mattress Reviews was founded to provide you with consumer reviews of all the leading mattresses available today.
If you’re buying your mattress and base separately rather than as a unit, you may need to research where you can get hold of well-made cheap bed frames. What type of bed frame you are after will, of course, depend on what type of mattress you have.
The bed frame, sometimes called the bed stead, is what the mattress will sit on when it’s in position. They are usually made of wood or metal and will include several components – the head, the foot and the side rails. Larger double or queen beds and up, will need some central support system also because of the extra weight they will have to support.
Nowadays the household name retailers will stock a selection of bed frames and you can buy them in-store or online. Their price will vary greatly depending on size, material and level of workmanship and it’s never a good idea to buy solely on price as this item will be the foundation of your sleeping system in your bedroom. If your bed frame is poor quality then it will collapse and it doesn’t matter how good your mattress is.
Ikea is a retailer that specializes in good quality cheap bed frames and mattresses. Checking their online store you can pick up a Fjellse slatted bed frame for $50 – this is a stylish pine wood frame that is around will support a double/full size mattress ( 53 inches wide by 74.5 inches long.)
The Ikea Malm range is very popular and these sell for between $100 and $250. These have adjustable sides to support different mattress heights, making them very flexible. These frames use particleboard and fiberboard with a galvanized steel midbeam for extra support.
Of course if you are looking for a well-made cheap bed frame we have only scratched the surface here of the type of models available. Many other manufacturers have a multitude of different designs and styles for you to research. Naturally, if you have a different type of mattress – like a waterbed mattress, air mattress or futon – you will be looking for an entirely different bed frame to what we have described above and these can normally be found at the specialist online retailers.
