The Many Benefits of Metal Beds

The Many Benefits of Metal Beds

Buying a new bed is an important purchase. After all, you spend almost a third of your asleep so it’s important to make sure your bed is comfortable, providing you with the best possible quality od sleep. Whilst the mattress is a very important part of your bed, you must also ensure that you have a good quality, solid bed frame to meet your body’s needs. Though not as important, it’s always nice to choose a bed that is aesthetically pleasing and will enhance the overall appearance of your bedroom too.

The most popular type of bed frames are either wooden or metal. However, metal bed frames can often be cheaper than wood and allow you to spend more of your budget on a better quality mattress.

Metal bed frames tend to be more simple, sleek and stylish and more often than not, they are also cheaper than the wooden alternative. You can also have a headboard and footboard attached for added style.

Benefits of choosing a metal bed

There are many benefits of choosing a metal bed, which we will outline below. We’ve also chosen some examples from our range of Swanglen Metal Beds, one of our best selling and most popular metal bed manufacturers. Swanglen is a British company offering high quality and good value in a range of classic and contemporary styles and with a choice of finishes to suit any décor.


Metal bed frames are made to last for a long period of time and can put up with a lot of wear and tear. Metal is an inherently strong material and will last for years, which means that you’ll likely need to change the mattress long before the bed frame needs replacing.
