375 Results
The most important of all bedroom products, the bed is one item of furniture that you need to get right - luckily, with a metal bed frame, there’s no going wrong. Whether you’re looking for a single, double or king size metal bed frame, it won’t fail to make a statement no matter the bed size.

What are metal bed frames made of?


In the same way as wooden bed frames can come in a variety of woods, metal beds and headboards can come in many different metals. If you’re looking to bring a traditional feel to your bedroom furniture, a black metal, such as iron, could be a good option. Alternatively, if you want something to suit a Scandinavian-style bedroom and you’re tired of wooden beds, you might opt for a silver metal bed made of nickel or aluminium.

How high is a standard metal bed frame?


Like the majority of bed frames, metal bed frames can vary in height. With a mattress included, the standard height for a bed is 25 inches (around 64cm) off the ground. This is generally thought to be the optimal height for getting in and out of bed easily.

That said, there are benefits to metal bed frames that are both lower and higher. Low beds, such as platform beds, bring a modern feel to a room and are also popular choices for kids beds. Equally, some higher, vintage beds could give your home that classic twist you’ve been searching for, and some extra storage space. Fortunately, you can easily adjust the height of your bed to suit your preferences - just opt for a taller or slimmer mattress.

How do you paint a metal bed frame?


One thing that makes metal bed frames so versatile is that, contrary to fabric or leather beds, they can be updated with just a splash of paint! You can quickly turn a classic black metal bed frame into a chic white metal bed frame at barely any cost.

In order to paint it, you’ll need to take the metal frame apart as much as possible before washing the pieces, sanding them down and spraying them with a metal primer. Make sure you allow the primer to dry before you spray the metal bed frame with a paint that’s rust resistant and made for use on metal. You might want to spray on a few coats before you apply a coat of clear sealer and wait for it to dry. Voila!
