Hints That It Is Time To Replace The Old Bed Frame 

Bed frames are one of the longest functioning items seen in every household and they undergo wear and tear with time. It is important to make certain that your bed is still usable, as making use of a broken bed frame can lead to poor sleep and even injuries.

  • Not getting the necessary support even after replacing the mattress. 
  • Waking up achy and drained. 
  • Recently having your best night’s sleep on a different bed.

  • The bed frame looks worn and used. 
  • Bent, loose, missing, or twisted fixings set into the bed frame.

Getting The Proper Measurements 

When planning to buy bed frames, it can be difficult to visualize the area that the bed frame will take up in the room. To solve this, you need to decide on the area to place the bed frame and mark out the area with masking tape. Make sure that there is adequate space for other furniture. It will be ideal to leave about half a meter of free space around the bed, as it can ensure that you can walk around comfortably. In addition, check that you have sufficient space to open the door in full, needless to mention the drawers and wardrobes.

If you plan to share the bed with someone else, you will need to consider many other additional factors. The bed frame should be fifteen centimeters longer than the tallest partner. Also, take into consideration the comfort of sprawling without knocking elbows with your partner.
