Picking a Bed Frame Size

Shop for bed frames in Salt Lake City.

Picking a new bed frame is all about working with the space you have. Bed size affects your bedroom’s proportions, your original expenditure and continuous costs for sheets and bedding. Sheets and bedding for queen and king size beds tend to be more expensive, whereas bedding for a full-size bed or a twin bed is more affordable. Twin beds are best for kids or young adults going away to college, while a bigger is ideal for couples, as it allows more room to stretch out and sleep contentedly.

Full or Double Bed Frame

A full or double bed is 53 inches wide and 75 inches long, though dimensions can differ somewhat depending on the manufacturer. A full mattress will fit well on a full or double bed frame that does not fit larger mattresses. A double bed gives maximum floor space and helps a small room from feeling crowded.

Queen Size Bed Frame

A queen-size mattress measures 60 by 80 inches and fits perfectly on a queen bed frame. The spaciousness of a queen bed can make sleeping much more comfortable for larger or agitated sleepers. As long as your bedroom is large enough for a larger bed, a queen is a great option.

King Size Bed Frame

King bed frames options are traditional king and California king. A normal king frame fits a mattress that is 76 by 80 inches. A California king mattress measures 72 by 84 inches, though measurements can change.

Twin Bed Frame

A twin size mattress is 39 inches wide and 74 inches long, a perfect size for a twin bed frame. It is the smallest bed available and is best suited for one child or one adult.

Durability of a Bed Frame

The durability of a bed frame depends on multiple a variety of different factors. These are:

  • The quality of the bed frame.
  • How the bed is cared for by the owner over the years.
  • How you use the bed frame when you aren’t sleeping.
  • The overall weight and number of users of the bed.

A durable wood or steel frame can hold up for decades if it is used according to the manufacturer’s warranty. Depending on bed frame quality, some frame warranties promise 10-year to lifetime coverage. If the frame makes squeaking sounds, it’s time to review the document for coverage details. It may just be an issue of tightening loosened nuts and bolts. Ultra-durable bed frames, mattresses and box springs that are developed for overweight or obese people provide guaranteed coverage based on added weight.
