If you are in the market for a new bed frame, don’t make some of the silly mistakes that I made. Not only did I choose the wrong bed size, it was not a good fit for the room and I wound up having to pay to ship it back and reorder the right one. When you are ordering a bed frame online, you want to be certain you get it right the first time so that you don’t have to deal with the hassle and cost of returning it.
What Room is Your Bed Frame Going?
Consider the room that the bed frame will be placed. If your bedroom, you want a piece that will become the focal point of the room. If for a guest room, you can opt for a less fancy style. For my master bedroom I chose a bed frame that created a calming environment. Keep in mind the room the bed frame will be so you can price accordingly.
Do You Have Enough Space?
Maybe you are like me, and you just bought a new mattress and need to get the bed frame to match. Problem for me was I purchased a frame for a queen mattress when we had just upgraded to a king. Slipped my mind, but this was a costly mistake. Be sure that you know exactly the size mattress you have that you need the frame for before pressing that order button.
Have a Budget in Mind?
The bed frames can range from cheap and inexpensive to extremely costly. The fancier design you fall in love with, the more expensive this purchase is going to be. Be sure to have a solid budget in mind, then shop within that budget to avoid going overboard and spending more than you had anticipated.
Is the Bed Frame Movable?
One thing that I completely overlooked when I bought my bed frame was how movable is the piece. Many of the larger bed frames will not disassemble into small pieces, so you had better be sure to measure doors and hallways to ensure it can make it to the room without incident. If your home is on the small size, consider a bed frame that has the ability to be taken apart. Consider a bed frame that has casters, this will make it much more easier to roll it around the room if you ever have to make decorative changes.
As you know we have recently decorated our bedroom. Though we haven’t bought a new bed, we have needed to purchase a variety of other items. Living in Gainsborough and needing the items quicker than buying them online, we were fairly limited. However we sourced curtains from Argos, shelves from B&Q and new bedding from B&M Home. I can’t wait to share my new look bedroom with you soon!
