Finding The Perfect Bed Frame
Finding that perfect bed frame has always been a challenge for me. Regardless of the bedroom set I had, I never fell in love with the bed frame. Last year, I went on a quest to find the perfect bed frame that worked for our bedroom and was able to provide the extra features we needed.
Through the years, I’ve had my share of bedroom suites, and while I loved the set, I never found the frame to be anything less than fair. The last bedroom set had a frame that was so blah, I didn’t order it as part of the set but rather I choose a mission style bed frame – it looked like this.
While it matched the bedroom set perfectly, I still wasn’t pleased with it. It was bulky, hard to dust, and provided nothing functional in terms of features. It was pretty though, but still not what I ultimately needed.
I kept this frame for about six or seven years until I’d had finally had it and decided to go on a quest for the perfect frame.
First, I decided what it was that I was looking for. What did I actually need? I knew additional storage space was a huge plus and first on the list. I also decided it couldn’t be bulky or overly ornate because it had to match my existing bedroom set. And lastly, it had to be within the budget I had set for spending.
As far as the design aspect, there is no rule that says your bed frame has to originate from the set – I love eclectic pieces of furniture and knew that look worked fine for me. I know some folks are sticklers for having each piece match perfectly so if that’s you then be sure you love each piece in your bedroom set completely!
After much searching – probably a month’s worth – I decided on this frame. I purchased this at Raymour & Flanigan Furniture for $1,599.95. They have a store in my area and I’ve actually gotten some nice furniture from there. They often run sales too which is always a plus.
It matched my bedroom set. It provided exactly what I was looking for in terms of form and functionality and it was within my budget.
I have also redesigned my bedroom a bit and refinished my makeup vanity – be sure to check out that post HERE. I can’t express how wonderful it is having all the extra storage space!
I hope this helps you think about carefully choosing your bed frame next time you decided to replace yours!
