Types of bed frames of the steel bed replace the slats of the bed and can be connected to the head and foot. The frame of the adjustable bed provides a square structure in which a box spring and a mattress sit. This type of bed structure is usually on wheels to facilitate movement. Some bed frames for larger beds have a metal slat through the intermediate and additional wheels for added support. Bed edges and dust flyers are used to hide the metal bed frames. Bed frames can be placed inside the wooden structure designed to hold the mattress and slatted slats.
Types of bed frames platform eliminate the need for a box spring, providing a sturdy support for the mattress. Platform beds vary in the length and type of the legs, to what extent the bed sits on the floor, and whether the mattress sits inside the platform or on top of it. Platform beds can include drawers or other storage in the base. Water beds and captain beds are styles of platform beds.
Divans and beds are examples of types of bed frames that have been around for a long time and are still popular, either as antiques or newly designed and manufactured products. Divans are described as upholstered boxes that use springs, slats or a flat surface to support the mattress. Bed bases were once high structures, decorated steps. Today’s bed bases are made of different materials, such as wood or metal, and can be fully upholstered, including the headboard and foot. The bed frame serves as a frame for the mattress. The support is provided by rigid or flexible wooden battens, wire mesh or a base made of bed springs.
