Bed Frame / August 14, 2018 / Babette.
Just make sure about the type of wood that is used to manufacture the solid wood frame of bed you purchase. Oak and pine are considered the best for bedroom furniture. Plywood looks good but is not sturdy enough. Particleboard again is cheaper than oak or pine but can bend over time with the weight of the mattress. The only drawback is the heavy weight of wood. But its durability beauty and elegance far outweigh this minor drawback.
The traditional four-poster bed as seen in Regency England has become modernized with canopy bed frames. This style once seen only in museums has been given a new lease of life by modern furniture makers who have seen their potential as an elegant yet sturdy bed frame. The modern canopy frames still have the four posts in each corner. These can extend to four feet from the ground and have supports from which curtains will hang. The posts are no longer ornate but have a simpler more utilitarian design that is easy to dismantle and clean.
Therefore we see that a platform bed is bed whose base is a raised flat and hard surface fit for supporting a mattress. There is no need for a mattress foundation because the frame with the help of its solid paneling provides adequate support for it. They as I have already said can be made from all kinds of material but wood and metal are most popular material used in making platform beds.
Contemporary bed frames be that a platform type or a box spring type typically reflect the modern European style of neat lines. Like all contemporary furniture such frames too include low features and straight bold lines. They are now made from all types of materials wood and metal being the primary choice of many. Other elements such as synthetic fibers woven around aluminum frame are becoming popular. Sometimes materials like leather are incorporated on the headboard as padding. This makes leaning against the headboard while in a sitting position all the more comfortable.
