Questions to help you pick the right modern bed frame

Before you head to checkout with your favorite modern bed frame, you might want to ask yourself the following questions to ensure you’ve made the right choice for your style, space, and needs.

What bed size do you need?

Measure your bedroom carefully and consider all pieces of bedroom furniture you plan to add to the layout. For example, flanking nightstands or a large dresser could create a cramped space if your bed frame is too large for the room.

This will help you pick the right size bed for your space.

  • Twin size: 38″ x 75″
  • Twin XL size: 38″ x 80″
  • Double/full size: 54″ x 75″
  • Queen size: 60″ x 80″
  • King size: 76″ x 80″
  • California king size: 72″ x 84″

Also, consider your height when choosing a bed size. A full bed is 5 inches shorter than a king or queen bed and 9 inches shorter than a California king bed. If you’re designing a guest room with a twin bed, you might also consider a daybed, which adds accessibility and makes the most of a small room by multitasking as a bed and a sofa.

What type of bed frame do you want?

Do you prefer a traditional bed frame or a platform bed frame? Platform beds eliminate the need for a box spring. Check to see if your mattress is designed for a specific type of bed frame, too — some have requirements for distance between support slats, for example.

You might also want to look for a storage bed if you’re going to emphasize functionality. Storage drawers beneath your bed can conceal anything from clothes to children’s toys or paperwork. Or maybe you’d like a canopy bed frame to create a relaxing atmosphere and block out light from windows.

What style do you want?

Modern interior design can blend with a range of other styles, opening up lots of aesthetic options. For example, you can combine traditional and modern interior design to create a transitional-style space. Or you might opt for a mid-century modern bedroom or a modern glam look.

Remember to consider your existing furniture and styling in addition to your ideal interior design style to find a balance between the two.

If you’re not sure what style you’d like, save some pictures of your favorite modern bedrooms for inspiration. Even professional design services use this method to capture the perfect look — it’s bedroom design 101

What price range are you looking for?

Defining your budget will help you identify the best options for your space. If you can’t afford the bed frame you want right away, consider saving up or waiting to catch a sale price instead of settling for something you like less.

A bed frame is an investment that can last for years through multiple mattresses, so you’ll want one that brings you joy.
