The benefits of a good night's sleep are well-documented. From increasing alertness throughout the day to supporting improved brain activity and mental health, catching a solid night's rest is one of the keys to healthy living. Of course, purchasing a comfortable mattress goes a long way to blissful evenings. Meanwhile, an often overlooked yet essential component to sleep-filled nights is owning a solid bed frame that adequately supports both you and your mattress.
Not only do sturdy bed frames offer all-important structural benefits, such as keeping your mattress off the ground, they're increasingly being sold with different design elements, meaning consumers now have more choices than ever before. Yet, unless you’re furniture shopping or updating your bedroom’s decor, bed frames remain an afterthought. We’re here to change that once and for all, and shine a light on the underappreciated benefits of bed frames, while highlighting why they matter to your mattress, and more importantly, to your sleep.
Why Bed Frames Matter to Your Mattress
Unless you clean on a daily basis, most people can relate to the unpleasant experience of vacuuming globs of dust from underneath our beds, despite it always feeling like a losing battle. Consider what it would be like if your mattress was lying on the floor, constantly exposed to bundles and bundles of dust. Bed frames, especially the metal variety, ensure your mattress is elevated, keeping it away from unsanitary elements and preventing damage. By supplying a flat base level of support, bed frames also protect the investment you made in your mattress by keeping them from becoming saggy or uneven over time.
Why Bed Frames Matter to You
They Improve How You Sleep
Not only do bed frames offer the aforementioned utilitarian benefits, they also have aesthetic value—playing an integral role in self-expression.
It's natural for most people to mostly consider the performance of their mattress when judging how well they've been sleeping. But it's also important to also take into account the bed frame, as well. A dependable bed frame should be sturdy, which could help increase the lifespan of an existing mattress, versatile, and minimize distracting squeaks. A supportive bed frame coupled with a well-made mattress will go a long way to improving your sleep.
Bring Your Personality To Life
Not only do bed frames offer the aforementioned utilitarian benefits, they also have aesthetic value—playing an integral role in self-expression. As is the case with most furniture items, there are bed frames designed to capture your personality and compliment your bedroom decor. Most conventional bed frames are compatible with headboards and footboards, which come in various styles, such as metal, upholstered, wicker, and more. But if you're the minimalist type, there are bed frames that are easy to assemble and don't require an unattractive and noisy box spring.
What to consider when purchasing a bed frame:
- Whether it's built for your current mattress
- Easy to assemble
- Storage opportunities underneath the bed
- Limits squeaking sounds
- Weight limit
- Transport friendly
- Provides sufficient support for you and the mattress
