Bed frame designs
Our selection of bed frames includes rustic and eco-friendly wooden bed frames and nigh-indestructible bed frames made from metal, plus options made from various fabrics and even leather! Size will be number one on your list of concerns when buying a bed, and you’ll find frames in every size, from the smallest single bed frames, to comfy double bed frames leading right the way up to the most regal super king-size bed frames fit for royalty!
Another part of your future bed frame you’ll want to consider is what kind of slats run across the frame. The split between bed frames with sprung slats (which adjust to your profile as you lie on the bed) and rigid slats (which offer more support for your mattress) are roughly equal, and there’s also the option to skip slats entirely and replace them with solid wood thanks to the divan style bed frames available in this category.
Bed frame styles
Finding a comfortable bed frame is just as much about style as it is size, so it’s a good thing that our verified sellers' stock so many amazing bed frame designs!

Why not opt for a white wooden bed frame or a sleek solid wood bed frame? If it's storage that you're looking for, a double bed frame with storage may be a great option for you - and offers an amazing way to fully utilise your double bed base. And while plain and minimalist bed frames are certainly in right now, their popularity certainly doesn’t mean you can’t opt for something eye-catching for your boudoir! Bring a little Edwardian charm to your bedroom with an ornate metal king size bed frame complete with whorls and spherical bed knobs.
Alternatively, you can choose from a range of fabric upholstery styles finished with decorative studding or embroidery for a luxurious feel.

Frequently asked questions about bed frames
How much weight can a bed frame hold?
Typically, most bed frames can hold up to 230kg of evenly distributed weight. Heavy-duty or big-and-tall alternatives, on the other hand, are tested to withstand anywhere from 450kg to 1800kg.
How do you stop a metal bed frame from squeaking?
All bed frames, whether wood or metal, have joints. When these start rubbing together, having become loose over time, the friction between the two surfaces causes a characteristic squeak, which can be incredibly frustrating. Therefore, it’s often a good idea to rotate or flip your mattress, alongside checking your frame for any loose bolts or screws. You may want to lubricate these areas with WD40 to minimise the chance of a recurrence.
How do I choose a bed frame?
Ultimately, this is completely down to personal preference. Think about your current mattress size and the available space in your bedroom. It’s also worth considering the support type, height, legs, material, and overall style and design of the bed frame, as you’ll want it to blend seamlessly with your existing interior décor.
Can you put a mattress directly on a bed frame?
It’s probably best not to lay your mattress directly on a bed frame. Though they may have one or two slats, these are often only there to strengthen the foundation, so you’ll need a flat base or Bunkie board to create a stable surface.
Can you attach a headboard to a metal bedframe?
Yes! No matter what the material of your bed frame, metal or otherwise, you should always be able to connect a headboard to it.
