Just make sure about the type of wood that is used to manufacture the solid wood frame of bed you purchase. Oak and pine are considered the best for bedroom furniture. Plywood looks good but is not sturdy enough. Particleboard again is cheaper than oak or pine but can bend over time with the weight of the mattress. The only drawback is the heavy weight of wood. But its durability, beauty and elegance far outweigh this minor drawback.
Most bed frames are made of either wood or metal, and either one is suitable. Generally, a wooden frame will look best with a wood headboard, and a metal frame with metal, but this depends on the style of headboard and how much of the frame will be seen. No matter what material you choose, you will need to make sure that headboard, and footboard if applicable, will properly connect to the frame. Most headboards can adjust to fit the frames that vary slightly in height, but this will depend on what the headboard is made out of and what size it is. By measuring in advance, you can be confident that your new bed frame and the existing headboard will work together.
You can either buy the bed frames directly from the online furniture stores or you can get it made as per your specifications. If you like any particular bed frame design from a website, you will have to take its printout. You will have to carry this printout when you go to the furniture store. You may also ask your carpenter to make the same frame of the printout taken. There is one major drawback if you directly buy bed frames from the online stores.
Contemporary bed frames, be that a platform type or a box spring type, typically reflect the modern European style of neat lines. Like all contemporary furniture, such frames too include low features and straight bold lines. They are now made from all types of materials, wood and metal being the primary choice of many. Other elements such as synthetic fibers woven around aluminum frame are becoming popular. Sometimes, materials like leather are incorporated on the headboard as padding. This makes leaning against the headboard while in a sitting position all the more comfortable.
