Many kids and adults prefer to sleep on a low bed frame, that is closer to the ground or floor. Kids who are transitioning from a toddler to a single size bed (around the age of 4 and up), would find that a low bed is a very good option to go for. You’ll be able to find lots of different designs: from wooden, metal, upholstered, and even four poster beds. Check out our list below for some lovely Low Bed Frame options for kids or adults.
How to choose a low bed frame?
You’ll need to carefully look at the bed’s dimensions in order to determine the height of the bed. Some retailers have specified what is the clearance from floor to base (or underside of the bed). Usually 22 – 24 cm is the lowest height you’ll be able to find. You then need to consider that the slats are around 5 – 8 cm in height (depending on their model and design). And finally you’ll need to consider how thick or deep your mattress is.
Low Bed Frame: Single, Double, or King Size
In our list below we’ve included low bed frames in single, double, king and even super king size. Kids and teens can sleep on a single bed comfortably, which fits a single mattress size (90 x 190 cm), if you have a toddler at home you’ll need a toddler bed which measures 70 x 140 cm. If you’re shopping for a master bedroom you should consider a double size which measures 135 x 190 cm, a king size which measures 150 x 200 cm or a super king size which measures 180 x 200 cm.
