Choosing A Modern Bed Frame
A bed frame is the wood or metal outline that provides the foundation for a bed. To choose the best modern bed frame for your home, consider your bedroom and what would flatter it the most. For example, if you have low ceilings, choosing a modern frame with a tall headboard isn’t likely to be a good idea as it will only accentuate that architecture. Instead choose a bed frame that will flatter both the architecture of your home and the modern style of your bedroom. Also consider the cost, level of maintenance and ease of assembly when choosing a modern bed frame. It can be easy to overlook the practical aspects, such as the difficulty of putting the frame together, when choosing a modern bed frame. Make sure the frame either comes with all of the hardware and tools you’ll need, or purchase the required items before you’re ready to construct the furniture. The type of maintenance the bed frame requires should also be a consideration, and this will depend mainly on the materials. Modern bed frames may be found in a range of metals and woods, but the headboards may be of other materials.
A modern leather headboard can often just be wiped clean and can be much simpler to maintain than an upholstered version. If your budget doesn’t allow for leather, or you’d prefer wood or metal, these materials can be very low maintenance. Avoid traditional slatted designs, as these can look too traditional in modern bedrooms. Instead, opt for either sleek, plain modern bed frame types or free-form geometrical or other creative styles to add modern drama to a simple, box-style bedroom shape.
