Best Bed Frames For Heavy People (2019): Our Comparison Reviews
Here are a few things to look for when you’re choosing a bed frame to suit a heavier person:
Always Opt For Metal Frames
While wooden frames are certainly attractive, it’s best to stick with steel when a heavy person is involved. Steel is simple, sturdy, and extremely durable. You can always go for something with wooden slats if you prefer, but be sure that the legs, frame, and rails are all made from rugged steel.
Consider Storage Space
We recommend only bed frames that don’t require a box spring. We think box springs are just plain silly. Sure, they’re a classic part of a bed, but a good slatted bed frame shouldn’t need any extra components to help it out. You should be able to use all those saved inches for storage! With that in mind, consider how high you want your bed to be. Our recommendations go from just over half a foot to 18”, so you can have as much room as you like.
Don’t Forget Looks
While being practical should certainly be your first priority, you still want your bed frame to look good! So, think about what will suit your style and your setup in your bedroom. Do you want something with a headboard, or a simple frame without any frills? Clean lines, or something more elaborate? Keeping your taste preferences in mind will help you narrow down your options.
If you need the absolute best bed frame for heavy people, we’d recommend you try to Zinus for its sleek lines, impressive weight capacity and conveniently low design.
