A bedstead or a bed frame is that part of a bed used to position the base and the mattress and may also include ways of supporting the canopy above. Bedframes are usually made of metal or wood. A bed frame entails foot, head, and side rails. In other cases, it may include slats that support the mattress, and therefore, a separate base is not required, like in the platform bed. In most cases, double-sized beds, together with the king and queen-sized beds, require center support rail with an extra length extending down to the floor.

The analysis of the height of the footboard is around 46 cm; the height of the headboard is about 105 cm.

4. Frame and Slat Roll

Slat roll for a standard is made from twelve 15 mm thick and 10 cm wide slats, which are bound together by an upholstery tape. According to customer request, a small sub charge is enough to pack the roll-up with some extra six slats. Therefore the distance between two slats is minimized to around 4 cm from the initial 7cm together with 12 slats. The side rails always have screws at the edges that hold the slat roll spread evenly, preventing it against sliding.

While using slatted frames, screws should ever be taken out. These frames should always be 1 to 3 cm narrower than the bed width and 195-200 cm in length. The metal frame is designed to be supported by the middle leg and still has adjustable height in case of a curved surface or floor. By the side rails, there is an embedded 7,5 cm mattress. The distance between the floor and the bottom of a side rail is about 25 cm. But it is possible to adjust this measure with a request from the customer. The footboard is always covered with a hammered sheet, which makes the slatted frame to be invisible from the front. In the box, there should be four rubber mats, which prevent the floor from scratching and also improving bed stability.


While one is choosing a bed frame, there some things to consider. Metal beds always give a classic shape and a structure that is slender with various styles that fit the room regardless of how it is decorated.
