Information About Iron Beds
If you find that you are in the market for a new bed, you may have already researched iron beds from a variety of different furniture stores. Iron beds have a beautiful and classic design that is flexible enough to be a boy's bed or to be transformed into a beautiful princess bed. One of the most popular types of beds is a wrought iron bed. These usually come in a basic black color and can be custom ordered to fit your decor. Iron beds are not recommended for very young children, as they can get hurt on the hard metal surface accidentally. The hard surface is not Â forgiving on teeth and other body parts that may hit the bed during typical child's play. However, iron beds are quite suitable for just about everyone else from your teen to your mother-in-law and just about everyone in between. Iron beds are guaranteed to add in a classy touch to any room in your home and Â can be obtained for a great price.
When purchasing an iron bed, bear in mind that some of these beds will come to you preassembled. Certain models cannot be taken apart and will need to be transported in one piece. This can be a concern, especially if you live in a small home or have a small passageway to get to the bedroom. Most iron beds however, will come in multiple pieces that can be easily put together using a few common household tools. These are the best beds to buy sometimes, especially if you live in apartments or plan to put the bed in a small room. Some people prefer to buy only a headboard and frame, while others prefer the full headboard and footboard combination. There are even some really nice sleigh bed options available in iron, which is a classic twist on the more traditional wooden sleighs. These beds are available in twin sizes, Queen, King and some places even have iron trundle beds.
A trundle bed allows for flexibility by having one bed stored underneath the main bed. When it is needed, the mattress and box spring combo can be rolled out from under the main bed and elevated on its own hardware. From there, it can be used as one large bed or two individual beds. This is great for siblings who share a room, or who have an extra bed on hand in the event that you have house guests. The only real drawback to an iron bed is the temperature of the metal, which can get exceptionally cold in the winter time. However, if you buy a warm, comfortable bedspread or comforter set, you will probably never even realize it. Add some soft flannel sheets and fluffy pillows and you will have the most comfortable bed you can imagine, combined with the versatility of having an iron bed that matches just about anything.
Most of the iron beds are made in the United States of America. This ensures that you not only get a high quality, durable bed but you keep your business in the United States, which helps our economy. Don't be afraid to try furniture warehouses for discount prices on these beds, and to shop around before you make a decision. The prices of iron beds are very reasonable, no matter where you purchase them from, so enjoy your shopping experience!
