Features to look for when purchasing a king bed frame with a headboard

The type and size of bed frame you choose will contribute to how you go about making your bed frame buying decision. A king size bed frame must have proper center supports to prevent the mattress from breaking down while a bed frame with a headboard must have sturdy connection points in order to minimize shaking and rattling of the bed. Below are some features to look for when purchasing a king bed frame with a headboard. 

  • Quality Material – Solid thick wood or steel frames are ideal. You can tell pretty quickly by looking at a bed frame if it is well made or not. Frames from Ikea or Walmart look much different than those you find at a higher end furniture store. 
  • Proper center support- A king size bed frame MUST have a sturdy center support that touches the ground. A king bed with no center support will cause the mattress to sag and will concave, sending both sleepers rolling into the middle of the bed.  
  • Sturdy bed slats or box spring – A platform bed utilizes bed slats, while a standard bed frame utilizes a box spring for support. Be sure that the slats or box springs that you couple with your bed are in good condition with not cracks or warping.
