One of the advantages of opting for a metal bed frame (style issues aside) is that they, more often than not, come in self-assembly form. And, as anyone with a narrow staircase will already know, a lot of divan style beds and some with large wooden frames simply will not get into a lot of bedrooms these days.
So if you want a full-size double or King-size bed, often metal frame bed is your only choice. But, as you can see below, this doesn’t mean you have to compromise on good looks.
Another reason to opt for a metal frame bed is durability. Provided you give the really cheap options a miss, a metal bed should last a lifetime. So all you need ever worry about is replacing the mattress.
So here is a selection of metal bed frames in all shapes and sizes; priced from £109 – £949. Unless specified the cost of a mattress is extra.
