Which size metal bed frame do you need?

Firstly think about the space that you have and what size bed you can fit into the room. Measure the room and allow space either side for furniture like bedside tables.

5. How do you clean a metal bed frame?

Metal bed frames are extremely strong and require little maintenance, this means you’ll have a great looking bed for a long time. However, to prevent a build-up of dirt and dust, you should lightly clean the frame with a damp cloth every 2 weeks or so to keep it in perfect condition.

6. Metal Bed frame safety advice

Do not jump on the bed as this can cause the metal to bend or break. Although strong, bed frames are designed to hold the pressure of a person’s weight when distributed evenly and jumping concentrates too much force in one place, increasingly the likelihood of damage.
