What Satisfied Customers Are Saying
1. In kids rooms, having the bed directly on the floor might not be a bad thing—one less place for the monsters to hide. But in teens' rooms, shared bedrooms, and small adult bedrooms, bed risers can create useful space out of nowhere. Bed frame risers are placed under the bed corners or slid over the frame (depending on riser type), elevating the bed, and providing room for space-efficient bedroom organizers. A set of four bed risers is sufficient for twin and full beds. Queens and kings will need additional support.
2. Under-the-bed storage is one of the biggest benefits of using bed frames and bed frame risers. Wicker baskets, plastic bins, and other easily organized storage methods are great complements to bed frames in kids' rooms. As a versatile, style-conscious alternative for both kids and adults, try storage trundles. Trundle bed frames integrate slide-out storage drawers that can be used for linens and bedding, or as a substitute bedroom dresser.
3. Metal bed frames made from heavy-duty steel provide a reliable foundation for queen, king, and California king beds. For heavier mattresses (e.g. memory foam), a metal bed frame with a center support rail is recommended. Leg count is another feature to watch for: a seven- or even nine-leg bed frame, rather than the common five or six, would better support heavy beds and sleepers. Adjustable universal bed frames are a good value for parents; they can expand as your child moves from a twin to a full or queen.
4. Flooring might seem like an odd consideration for bed shoppers, but then you've probably never woken up with the feeling that your nightstands were playing Pong with your bed. Wheels on hardwood (or tile) are usually a bad idea, though bed frames with wheels are much easier to move (and more stationary) in carpeted bedrooms. If you still prefer the convenience of wheels, bed risers could help keep your bed stationary in a non-carpeted room.
5. Don't want to buy another box spring? There are several bed frame styles that make a box unnecessary. Two-in-one bed frame box springs combine a steel frame with spring supports—a smart way to minimize the visual bulkiness of a thick mattress. Wood slat bed frames do the same trick for beds with wooden headboards. Many sleepers are also adopting the minimalist modern style of platform beds and low profile beds, which replace both frames and box springs.
