Bed Frame / September 4, 2017 / Calandre
Modern versions of the sleigh frame of beds come with just a curled footboard and flat headboard which allows users to place the bed flush against the wall. Some are even made from leather which gives a very grand appearance to the bedroom. If you search online for sleigh bed-models you will come across the "Tuscany Sleigh Bed" that is made from luxurious faux leather with a high headboard and curved footboard. With a rich Espresso brown finish this sleigh bed is truly a visual treat.
The choice between a metal frame and a wooden frame is also important to consider. Wooden frames are typically considered more of a modern look than metal bed frames and are also usually easier to move and carry. Additional materials just like cushions and cloth are often used to improve experience and appearance of the frame. Adding a cushion on the headboard is a fantastic way of avoiding late night bumps on the head.
A solid wood bed-frame is considered by many to be stronger than a metal frame which is prone to rusting and warping. If maintained properly solid wood bed frames can last for many years. Dust periodically and wipe down with soapy water once a year. If your solid wood bed frame is painted or varnished then repaint or re-varnish when it wears out and your solid wood bed-frame will even be able to last for more than a generation.
