When you’re selecting a new bed, you probably put a lot of thought into the kind of mattress and foundation you're looking for. As you’re shopping, however, don’t forget that the bed frame is another important component. The frame supports the mattress while you’re on it, keeping it steady and secure. If you’ve ever slept on a bed that squeaks or shifts after the slightest move, you know the importance of a quality frame!

These tips will help you navigate the available bed frames so you can choose the one that’s best suited for you and your new bed:
Match the size of your mattress
Bed frames are sized just like mattresses and foundations, so you’ll need to select the one that matches the size of your mattress. Choose from twin, extra-long twin, full-size (also called double or standard), queen, king, and California king.
Consider the height of your bed
When you know what type of mattress and foundation you’re using, consider the height of all your components, making sure to include the bed frame. You’ll want to be able to easily get in and out of bed without having to exert yourself. Some types of mattresses aren’t usually paired with foundations, so you’ll need to select a higher frame to compensate for the loss in height.
Consider the style you want
Bed frames have come a long way from just the basic options. You can now choose frames with different colors with stylish elements such as contoured side rails or tapered legs. Some are designed to be used without a footboard, so if you have a limited amount of space, this might be a good choice. Some frames have wheels on the bottom to make moving the bed easier. Finally, if you have allergies, choose a bed frame that’s designed to be used without a bed skirt, since these can harbor dust and other allergens.
