How can you choose the best bed frame for a heavy person?
Wondering how you can know whether a bed frame is good or not for you? The tips below.
Every bed frame has a weight limit which shows how much it can support without getting damaged as a result of pressure. The weight limit of each bed frame varies. Metal bed frames have a weight limit that ranges between 500 to 4,400 lbs. There are larger bed frames with higher weight capacities like the California King size.
Weight of the bedframe and ease of assembly
Bed frames with metal material and sturdy and durable. However, they tend to be heavy. This makes it challenging to easily move them from one place to another. Confirm whether you are comfortable with the weight of a bedframe before purchasing it.
Size of the room
A bed is always the largest piece of furniture in a bedroom. Choosing a bed that is too large for a room can overpower it. Consider putting your mattress on the floor to determine the size of the bed frame.
You can as well approximate its size using masking tape or pillows. If the room already feels cramped, choose a small metal bed under the box spring to increase the space in your bedroom.
If your house needs a bed frame that saves space, you can go for a simple platform bed frame. A bed that offers drawers beneath the box spring can also be space-saving.
Match your decorating style
Your bed is always located at a central point in your bedroom. You, therefore, need to choose the right style. If it needs to create a comfortable and welcoming feel in your bedroom, choose a wooden bed frame. You can choose a bed frame made of wood or metal with minimalist lines to achieve a sleek and modern look. After considering the styles that go well with your room, go and look at available models.
Consider looking for a bed frame that has been constructed from steel. Steel is a strong metal that offers maximum support and strength. Get a bed frame with a square cross-section because it is stronger than steel rods. Steel rods can easily bend after using them for some time. Plastic and wood don’t have the same durability and strength, so try to avoid them.
As a heavy person, it’s crucial to choose the best bed frame that will give you a comfortable rest and last longer. For this reason, you need to consider factors like materials used to make the frame, size of your room, your bedroom’s interior décor, and the height of the bed frame.
