Are you considering a purchase of a new platform bed? If so, one of the first decisions you will have to make is what size bed to buy. This decision is also one of the most important. The size of your bedframe will affect your comfort and sleep quality, especially if you share your sleeping surface with a partner. It will also affect the overall look of your bedroom and determine how much space you have for other bedroom accessories such as nightstands, dressers, and chests.

The most important thing to remember when choosing a frame size is to keep the bed proportional to the size of the room. Children’s rooms, for example, or even a small guest room, may not need more than a twin mattress frame to make them seem just right. (Many customers prefer two twin beds in guest rooms because it allows more flexibility for sleeping options.) Large bedrooms, on the other hand, need a large bed to serve as the focal point of the room. King platform bed frames or California king beds are often the best solution for master bedrooms with high ceilings, French doors, or lots of space. Make sure to keep in mind both who will be using the bedding the most, as well as the space provided by the bedroom, and you will almost always make the right size decision.

Another aspect to consider when choosing a bed size is the style you prefer for your bedroom furniture. Most traditional beds are designed with queen bed frames as a model (mostly because queen sized bedframes are the most popular size on the market). A queen bed looks beautiful in all styles, ranging from traditional sleigh beds to more contemporary leather or metal frame designs. Ornate, Asian, or ultramodern styles are more often found in larger bed sizes (at least double/full sized beds) rather than twin sizes. If you have your heart set on a particular style, it may be worth it to consider investing in a larger sized bed.
