Your Guide to Bed Frame Shopping in Calgary

Bed Frame Shopping


The internet is full of articles on the importance of quality beds and mattresses, and how they aid a healthy, happy life. However, there are not nearly enough of them about the importance of how a bedframe can make a huge difference in attaining a good night’s sleep.

Here are some ways to get the perfect bed frame if you’re out shopping for one.

Bed Frame: Meaning and Importance

A bed frame is essentially a part of your bed that provides support to the mattress. It prevents the mattress from moving sideways, by providing a solid and stable base (a quality one should provide that). A frame is also responsible for minimizing the possibility of sagging or warping in mattresses, which can reduce the mattresses’ lifespan and also provide a very uncomfortable sleep. Lastly, it helps elevate the mattress to the right height so you can get in and out of  your bed easily.

How to Buy the Right Bed Frame in Calgary

We all sleep differently and have unique preferences when it comes to what makes a cozy bed. The ‘right’ bed frame will depend on who is buying it. However, there are some common factors that we all need to consider before buying a frame.

Consider the Size of Your Bed and Mattress

Since a bed frame exists to provide support and stability to your bed and mattress, their size plays a central role in determining the type of bed frame you need. Ideally, a bed frame should be the same size as your mattress. In order to find the right size for your frame, measure your mattress carefully and use that as your reference.

Height Matters a Lot

The height of the right bed frame will be complementary to the height of your mattress and foundation. If you have a thin mattress or one without a foundation, you may wish to invest in a taller bed frame to compensate for the lower height. Conversely, if you have a tall mattress or foundation, it is better to get a lower bed frame to avoid making your bed sit too high.

A bed that is too low or one that is too high can cause issues and be uncomfortable and difficult to get in and out of. Therefore, it is best to try and strike a balance between the height of your mattress and bed frame. If you are having trouble finding the right height, you may wish to consult a bed frame expert/store or opt for an adjustable bed frame instead.

Picking the Right Material

Another important consideration to make while shopping for a bed frame in Calgary is the material it is made of. Most bed frames are made of either wood or metal. Naturally, both these materials are known for their strong, durable nature, and either one will make a great choice. When it comes to choosing between the two, the main difference will be their appearance.

Don’t Forget to Consider the Aesthetic

Oftentimes, we let ourselves lose sight of the bigger picture when we are out furniture shopping and end up buying something that does not match the aesthetic of our house. This results in our new furniture sticking out and not matching the appearance of the rest of your home. Being mindful of your bedroom’s aesthetic while shopping will help you find and focus on frames that complement your room and make it stand out.

While it may not seem like a big thing, a bed frame can actually do a lot for the aesthetic of your bedroom. Luckily, you can choose from a wide variety of colors and finishes to find the perfect match for your needs.

Find the Best Deal

While it might be tempting to read the words “sale” or “best deal” while shopping and immediately jump to the conclusion that it is the best deal you can get. But many times, your cheapest option isn’t necessarily the best deal. The term ‘best deal’ means getting the most value and highest quality at the best and/or lowest possible price. To find deals like this, it is best to do a thorough search.

Visit your local Calgary bedroom furniture stores and check out their bed frame collection. You may also want to go online to browse through more options. Compare their products and prices of each before making a final choice.

Another thing to keep an eye out for are perks, like extra discounts, FREE shipping, and price-beat guarantees. Spending a little time finding a great furniture store can help you save money and they can even help you make an informed decision.
