How to Save Money Buying a Rustic Bed Frame
A bed is essentially a single piece of furnishing that is utilized as an area to rest and relax. It provides support to the body by providing a firm base upon which the person can sit and offers protection from the elements. Beds are available in different shapes and sizes and are designed to meet the needs of different people. There are also various types of beds that one can choose from, depending upon ones’ personal requirements and preferences.
A bed is typically made up of four main parts: the headboard, the footboard, the mattress and the frame. The headboard is the topmost part of the furniture piece and serves to provide support to the head. Footboard and the mattress provide cushioning and comfort to the user while the frame is the supporting structure for all other parts. When you consider all these four parts and analyze it with the other aspects of a furniture piece such as size, shape, design, color, cost, and even convenience, it becomes very easy to understand why bed serves as one of the most important pieces of furniture in a house.
For children, the two types of beds are commonly available. One is a twin size futon bed, and the other one is a full size futon bed. A twin size bed typically accommodates between two to four people, to a full sized bed typically accommodate between six to eight people. Futon beds typically consist of a futon box, a mattress, drawers, and underbed storage space.
King and double queen bed sizes are the next two major sizes after the twin xl. King size beds typically accommodate around nine individuals, while the double size bed sizes accommodates around fifteen individuals. Another popular option is the California King Bed, which is the largest among all the bed sizes. A king bed can often double up as an additional guest bed or can be used for sleeping on occasions when you have spare guests.
The style of the bed is also an important consideration. Most rustic bed frames are traditionally made of wood. Other styles include metal or wrought iron, although metal and wrought iron bed frames are gaining popularity due to the fact that they are not as highly priced as traditional wood framed rustic bed frames. Rustic bed frames are typically made from a single piece of wood, with the frame being built around the mattress so the mattress does not have to be attached to the frame.
A common way to save money when purchasing a rustic bed frame is to purchase an adjustable bed frame, which can usually be purchased as two separate pieces. The frame can be assembled at home, or if purchasing a kit, it can be put together by a professional. With an adjustable bed frame, the mattress can either be lower or higher than the frame, which allows for different sizes of frames. An example of this would be if the frame had a full-sized bed, then the mattress could be lowered to around thirty to forty-five degrees, while the frame remained at its original height. This can save the purchaser a great deal of money.
