Slat bed frame, made of wood or metal, sometimes attach to the headboard and footboard and actually create a frame for the bed. Bed splints have been around for a long time, but modern bed designs have expanded the types and styles of bed bars. Mattress guarantees often require a stronger support for the mattress than that provided by the bed slats. The frame of the steel bed replaces slat of the bed and can be connected to the head and foot.
The frame of the adjustable bed provides a square structure in which a box spring and a mattress sit. This type of bed structure is usually on wheels to facilitate movement. Some bed frames for larger beds have a metal slat bed frame through the intermediate and additional wheels for added support. Bed edges and dust flyers are used to hide the metal bed frames.
Bed frames can be placed inside the wooden structure designed to hold the mattress and slatted slats. Platform slat bed frame eliminate the need for a box spring, providing a sturdy support for the mattress. Platform beds vary in the length and type of the legs, to what extent the bed sits on the floor, and whether the mattress sits inside the platform or on top of it. Platform beds can include drawers or other storage in the base.
