We all appreciate the importance of getting a good night’s sleep, and there’s not just the obvious necessity for us to rest and recover, but also the pure relaxing comfort you can only find in your own bed.
This is of course provided by the quality of your bed, and it doesn’t take a genius to realize that this can make or break your beauty sleep. In order to get a good night’s sleep on a regular basis, consider treating yourself to something special. After all, you do spend a large percentage of your life sleeping, and what you’ll be pleased to know is you don’t have to spend big bucks to secure superior sleeping arrangements.
Below are a few things you should consider when shopping for a new bed — plus stylish bed frames under $400.
The Size and Support
We aren’t all blessed with giant apartments and homes (if you are, you’re very lucky) and we can’t all accommodate a California King sized mattress – as much as we’d like to. That being said, it is no secret that a larger bed is something you don’t want to be without – just ask anyone who has made the switch from Single to Double and above.
The bigger sizes can give you the space to spread out and feel support from all areas, and with careful furniture re-arrangement, even the most modest of abodes could accommodate a Double or even Queen sized mattress.
Aesthetically Pleasing Designs
Along with the mattress, you need a decent frame to hold it up; it is imperative you find a sturdy and reliable frame that is going to last – you don’t want to be rudely disturbed be persistent creaks and groans that can come with low-quality builds, every time you turn over.
On top of this, you shouldn’t just buy any old frame your mattress will fit on. Your bed frame is just as important as your wardrobe or dining table, so find something stylish. It’s worth it! Wooden frames in particular are a fashionable and durable type that are proving to be quite popular.
Don’t worry. Not all good looking frames are über expensive. It’s a myth that you will have to spend a fortune to find good design. Below are a few favorites to get you started on your bed frame search:
Bedz ‘R’ Us
Popular U.K. retailer, Bedz ‘R’ Us, is known for their wide range of frames under $400. The one below is simple, and will look great mixed in with your vintage furniture. This company also delivers!
King Frame: £119.99
This Swedish super-store is every broke fashionistas dream! It can be a pain to get all the stuff yourself (and then put it together), but it does save a bunch of cash. The only problem with these beds is they become less sturdy every time they’re taken apart. So if you’re constantly moving, you may want to get a different type of frame.
Like raw wood, white wood is also becoming popular in the land of decor.
Full Frame: $249.00
Want something overly girly and feminine? Overstock always has beautiful upholstered headboards under $400. Just get a basic bed frame (usually under $150) at a department store.
Queen Headboard: $324.99
Muji is very Ikea-esq, but not as accessible. They don’t deliver everywhere, and if they do, it can be pricey. So lucky you if you leave near a store! But I will say this, their frames are awesome! They’re a bit more expensive, but the frame will last for years.
So if you’ve yet to experience the blissful comfort you get from having a proper bed, invest in one now and you’ll soon find yourself wondering how you ever did without one.
