Bed Frame / September 8, 2018 / Marveille.
A sleigh bed-frame is characterized by a headboard and footboard that curl at the top of each corner. This shape is reminiscent of a sleigh and hence the name sleigh bed. Typically sleigh bed-frames are made from carved wood with expensive models having hand carved curls. The sleigh bed frame originated in France and is available as single or double beds. Americans fell in love with this unique design and started manufacturing sleigh beds. The sleigh bed-frame usually curls outwards so make sure your bedroom space takes into account this extra projection.
It is important to determine the correct bed size as well. The size of the bed should depend as much on your requirement as on the size of the room. Too big a frame in too small a room will be very inconvenient. Different types of bed frames have been invented to accommodate such needs. Just think of a hide-away bed that folds up into another furniture such as shelf or a desk when not in use. Then there are trundle beds that go under another bed for daytime storage or whenever it is not required. There are more such examples. Their designs may vary but all of them come in contemporary. Just choose with care.
Just make sure you get a comfortable futon mattress and not the traditional bulky box spring type. Leather frame of beds are available in many shades like black cream chocolate brown white etc. You will not find it difficult to match the rest of the bedroom décor with your classic leather frame of bed. To clean first vacuum to remove dust and then use a damp cloth to remove tough stains and grime. Leather bed-frames are very durable and what is more it looks better with age.
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.
