Right in this blog guide, we will be discussing all those major materials which are used for making any durable and masterpiece design of the bed frame. While you are shopping for any new mattress, you will probably be looking for a fresh new bedroom set or at least a stylish bed frame that can go perfectly with your new mattress.
But while shopping for any bed frame, there are quite a few important considerations which you need to keep in mind to pick an extraordinary model of the bed frame. Out of all those elements, we have the option of material for you. Let’s discuss some of the most common materials a bed frame is made up of:
Starting with, you can get a basic metal 4 rollers bed frame which has been offered with the bare minimum accompaniment by the side of most mattress retailers. The metal bed frame is becoming a popular option because it is cost-effective in terms of both long term & short term, and is nice looking in overall appearance.
If you are not completely sure about what sort of bed frame design will match with your bedroom décor, then take some time out and do some research work. You can get a basic metal bed frame at the cost of around $50.00 to $75.00.
The next best choice is known to be an extra ornate metal bed frame. Styles are ranging from colonial styles to some cutting edge frames or modern canopy beds. You can get a large size of metal bed frame in the price range of around $250.00 to $600.00.
Veneer & Laminates
Another most popular bed frame material is laminates and veneers. It is all about some layers of wood or an additional product that are applied on the wood frame and later on they are sealed. Laminates and Veneers are quite a lot expensive but later on, they are laid over to some affordable wood bases. They are known to be popular, versatile, and extra-durable in resistance.
The last most important and highly recommended material is wood material! This material has been used for furniture construction for the last so long years. Wood is categorized into two main types i.e. hardwood and softwood. Both of these terms are used for describing the seeds, leaves, and overall structure of the trees.
As it is evident from the name that softwood will have a soft wooden texture which will be completely different from the hardwood in terms of resistance and durability. Softwood material is generally originated from ‘cone’ bearing trees- like evergreens which is most often found in cold climates such as aspen, fir, spruce, and pine.
Hardwoods generally grow in the climate or temperature which is mild and not too hot. They do have a dense texture as compared to the softwood trees. Some of the common examples of hardwood trees are beech, cherry, mahogany, oak, and maple.
Few most common types of woods which are used in making furniture or bed frames are as mentioned below:
This is a tropical medium to hardwood which is excellent in craving and is stronger too. It is having a medium grain with some uniform pores on it. Plus its color is tan to reddish-brown. It is durable and does know how to maintain its shape against any sort of shrinkage or swelling. It is a fairly expensive wood.
This has been one of the most recommended types of wood which is used to make some durable furniture items. It is heavy, hard, and a block of grained wood. It is available in two different varieties i.e. white and red. Oak can stain well in any color.
Maple is a light-colored hardwood. It is shock-resistant with diffused and has evenly sized pores that yield a completely fine texture as well as even grain. Maple is extremely durable and does have a quality in which it can take the stain well.
The last most important type of wood is beech! This type is wood is most often used for making stools and chairs. It is pale colored and is having a fine tight grain. Plus it is also having large medullar rays which make it quite similar to maple or birch woods. We would be calling it as a strong and hard material that is highly shock resistant. It is extremely good at staining and polishes well. Being affordable it is generally used for some general-purpose fabrication or the making of furniture, toys, and floors.
