Your old bedroom set is broken, or at least well on its way, and you need a new double bed frame. You will simply run up to the local mattress store and pick up the least expensive variety, have it delivered, set up and be done with the entire situation. It sounds pretty straight forward, right? Well, not so fast; do not walk out that door yet. There are a lot of options these days that were not available years ago when you may have purchased the set that you have now.
For example, would you like the same simple metal set-up on casters, similar to the one you have had for years now? Or, would you like to take it up a notch? You can make your bedroom more modern by going with a platform bedframe. A double bed frame with platform styling could really change the entire look of your room. As a contemporary option, you have choices of metal, wood or leather. This eliminates the need for a box spring, so if you are upgrading your mattress set as well, this can save you a considerable amount of money.
On the other hand, maybe the simplistic look is not really your style. You should consider a four poster double bed frame to add a new feel to your place. This look will take your room on a 360 degree spin from the old styling of your traditional bed to an elegant and aristocratic new look. These are also available in a variety of materials, with wood being the most popular of the group for this type of bedroom set. This style is also available as a canopy if you are after a more graceful and feminine Victorian style.
Another thing to keep in mind is that you want something that will fit in with your other furniture (that is, unless you are completely redecorating). A new wicker double bed frame would look fine with a chrome armoire if you are going for a cosmopolitan look, but it may not be the best idea for someone that is looking to achieve a more masculine aura of décor. And what about upsizing? Measure your room out first. Your larger options are the queen and king, but these will take up quite a bit more space than your current size. You do not want to take up so much room that you are not able to move comfortable with in the area.
You can do some comparison shopping online to see what exactly your options are. For that matter, you can even order your new double bed frame online and save yourself a trip to the brick and mortar shop close to you. The Internet will offer more variety than a local store, with the same great customer service. Some online stores will even offer free delivery and set up of your new bedroom purchase. Keep an eye out for coupon codes to use with the retailer you decide to shop with. If you time your purchase right, you can save a considerable amount of money!
