5 Features to Look for in Metal Beds

November 12th, 2010

Purchasing a metal headboard or frame for your bedroom can be a good investment, but only if you purchase the highest quality and ensure you are buying from a trusted company. Some of these beds are not a good option because they are not as strong as they should be. However, with a few simple tips you can easily create a bedroom that is luxurious and comfortable to you. The key is to know what to look for in metal beds first.

#1: Quality Design and Structure

The design and structure of the bed needs to be the highest quality possible. In short, it pays to invest in a bed that offers stronger rails and framing than one that is less expensive and less well made. To find out if the bed is a good investment, check the hinges, where the metal comes up against more metal. It should be a strong weld here. Look at the design of the bed. Even the decorative elements such as the grills should have a strong bond and be well made.

#2: No Maintenance Required

Next, look at the metal and determine if it will need to be maintained over time. Some products may need to be painted, for example, which can greatly hurt your investment. Rather, look for a metal finish that has a textured coating, preferably a powder coat. This will give the metal finish a long life and will ensure that you do not have to do any painting, sanding or other care to it.

#3: A Warranty

Most of the metal beds on the market will come with a warranty. This warranty should cover the parts of the bed at least, with some being more inclusive. Look for a frame that offers a ten year warranty for a good level of protection. However, read the details. Find out what is covered under the warranty and what may not be. This information is critical to understand.

#4: Mixed Materials Means More Inspection

When you buy metal beds that also feature wood, do take the time to check out the wood, too. This mixture of materials can really make the bed beautiful. Look at the type of wood used and ensure it is well constructed, too. Ensure that the joints where the metal meets the wood are strong. This will extend the life of the bed, too. Be sure that the finish on the wood is durable so you will not have to refinish it.

#5: Note That Price Is Not An Indication Of Quality

Do not make the mistake of purchasing a higher priced bed because you believe it is a better quality. On the flip side, do not think that every inexpensive bed is poor in quality. Rather, check out the design and construction of the piece before investing.

The more you know about these metal beds, the better your chances of buying a bed you will enjoy for years to come. Even metal daybeds can be a great investment when you put some time into checking out their construction.
