Guide on choosing your Bed Frame

Guide to Choosing a Bed Frame

We produce several types of bed frames. Here is an abridged list, along with a few definitions, of the different options available while selecting the perfect bed frame.

Type of frame

New Bedframe Generation: Choose our most recent model, the Balance bedframe, featuring the most recessed legs on the market. Offering additional space for toes (4.75”), it is safer than ever. The heavy-duty double center bar adds strength, offering the best support for your mattress. The Balance bedframe is perfect if you have a headboard to install, and its interlock system makes assembly easy.

Regular frame: if you have a mattress/box spring set only, or if you install a headboard only.

Low profile frame: this frame lowers your bed by 3″, compared to a regular frame.

Type of attachment

Nuts & bolts: allows for a more precise adjustment than an interlock frame.
