Bed Frames, also known as bedsteads, are furniture pieces that support and position mattresses as part of a bed setup. Comprised of a head (headboard), foot (footboard), side rails, and platform slats to support the mattress, bed frames are diverse frameworks that offer greater sleep comfort and a range of aesthetic styles. Most bed frames are manufactured out of wood or metal with multiple sizes to pair with Twin, Full, Queen, King, and California King beds.

What is the standard height of a bed frame?

The height of a standard mattress and bed frame ranges from 18”-36” | 46-91 cm. Modern beds are around 18” | 46 cm, common beds are 25” | 64 cm, and old-fashioned antique beds are often 36” | 91 cm from the floor.

Is it ok to sleep on a mattress on the floor?

There is no direct risk of putting a mattress on the floor, but mattresses that sit directly on the floor may be exposed to larger amounts of dust and may absorb greater moisture because of the restricted airflow.

What are the advantages of having a bed frame?

Bed frames provide greater bed support for a better sleep, can add style and design to your bedroom, and can also provide additional storage space through optional drawers.
