If both you and your partner are heavy people and you are looking for a new bed, you need to be careful in choosing one. This is because some beds will not be as comfortable for both of you. One of the first things is to make sure the bed has is a heavy-duty frame. Below are some benefits of doing this, including some tips on choosing the best frame.
Heavy Duty Bed Frame Benefits
One benefit of a heavy-duty bed frame is it will last longer for you. Imagine a bed frame that would not be strong enough to hold your weight when you are sitting on the edge of the bed, such as to put your shoes on. In a case like this, the frame may crack or break. This would also damage your mattress.
A heavy-duty bed frame would mean that there is less noise while you are in bed. A frame that is not heavy duty will make a lot of creaking sounds when you move, such as changing positions while sleeping. You will be much more comfortable in a bed with a heavy frame. This means you won't be waking up in the mornings stiff and with a backache.
It's important to note that purchasing the bed with a heavy-duty bed frame may cost extra money. Even though this is the case, purchasing a bed that does not have a heavy-duty frame would mean you would be replacing your bed frame more often.
Choosing a Heavy-Duty Frame
When looking for a heavy-duty frame, first ask what the weight capacity rating is. The total capacity should be enough to handle both of you. Choose one that has a larger weight capacity than you currently weigh just in case.
A bed frame that is made of heavy-duty steel or metal would be best for you. When choosing the frame consider the height also. For example, you want a frame that is higher up if you are taller. A higher bed frame also gives you more storage space under the bed. If you are short, purchase a heavy-duty frame that is lower to the ground to make things easier for you.
You can find heavy duty bed frames online. If you have stores in your area that sell beds, they will likely be able to custom order a bed frame for you if they do not have one in stock. Contact a company like Joerns Healthcare for more information.
