If you are planning to make the platform bed on your own, you need to understand that it is not a one mans job. The best of the best carpenters would need some help when they are making the platform beds. You will need all the tools to make a bed, and few diagrams or plans for the measurements. You can also watch few good videos on the Internet if you need some real good help visually. If you are buying these beds from the furniture store, you need to make sure that you get all the measurements right.
Even though the dimensions of the frames are standard, there are many different sizes and shapes. For a childs bed, a minimal frame is often recommended because there is less of it to be injured on. There are also non-standard sizes to take into account when buying your twin bed frames. Lots of people may think they have a twin size bed when really it is a twin extra long or a three quarter size.
Contemporary bed frames, be that a platform type or a box spring type, typically reflect the modern European style of neat lines. Like all contemporary furniture, such frames too include low features and straight bold lines. They are now made from all types of materials, wood and metal being the primary choice of many. Other elements such as synthetic fibers woven around aluminum frame are becoming popular. Sometimes, materials like leather are incorporated on the headboard as padding. This makes leaning against the headboard while in a sitting position all the more comfortable.
Metal and wood made frames are mostly common and widely used all over the world for providing better support of mattress over the bed. While wooden frame looks classy and elegant, iron frame looks trendy and almost maintenance free so never attracts any special care-giving issue. On contrary iron frames are least combustible whereas wooden frames have markedly low level fire resistance. Wooden frames are mostly available on the four legs while metal frames are found on wheels.
A sleigh bed-frame is characterized by a headboard and footboard that curl at the top of each corner. This shape is reminiscent of a sleigh and hence the name sleigh bed. Typically, sleigh bed-frames are made from carved wood with expensive models having hand carved curls. The sleigh bed frame originated in France and is available as single or double beds. Americans fell in love with this unique design and started manufacturing sleigh beds. The sleigh bed-frame usually curls outwards, so make sure your bedroom space takes into account this extra projection.
