When choosing a bed frame there are a number of important factors to consider to ensure you make the best choice for your specific needs and preferences. These include personal style, bedroom decor, style, and purpose of the bed for example; traditional, Rustic, Contemporary, Upholstered, or Timber.
What features do you need for the bed frame?
When considering a bed frame, there are a few key features to keep in mind. One important factor is whether you need the frame to include storage or a bookcase, as this can help maximize space in your bedroom. You may even want to consider options for bunk beds in smaller rooms for two people. Additionally, it’s important to consider how the frame will complement your existing bedroom furniture and whether it will provide adequate support for your mattress. Of course, your budget will also play a role in your decision-making process.
What size frame do you need for your mattress?
When choosing a bed frame for your mattress, size is a crucial factor to consider. If you currently have a Queen mattress, you’ll need to decide whether you want to keep that mattress or upgrade to a King size. If you choose to upsize, it’s important to make sure that the frame will provide enough room for you to move freely around the bed, even in low-light situations. Additionally, it is important to ensure that the dimensions of the bed frame are suitable to the room size, to ensure that you have enough space to move around the room without feeling cramped.
What budget do I need for a new bedroom bed frame?
Your budget is a major consideration in the style and size of your new bed frame, remember to factor in the extra cost if you need to purchase a new mattress as well. It’s prudent to remember that investing in your comfort with the best choice of mattress to suit your needs will deliver the most long-term benefits.
Most bed frames come as 1 of a 4-piece suite typically including 1xTallboy + 2 x bedside tables. If you’re shopping for the complete set then taking measurements of your space beforehand is a great idea.

Does your bedframe need built-in storage?
Many Bed Frames come with additional storage options. Some come with a Gas Lift Mechanism mounted internally which assists with raising the mattress to access the space and maintains the open position. Gas lift storage frames provide the most storage space, great for packing away Winter woolies, bedding and kids toys.
A more common option is the drawer base with easy access drawers in the sides or footboards of the Bed Frame.
If you need extra storage and want to keep to a smaller budget look for a bedframe with enough height to accommodate small, inexpensive airtight storage boxes on rollers that sit underneath and out of sight.
