How Long Do Bed Frames Last?

How Long Do Bed Frames Last?

We don’t often shop for furniture pieces as much as we shop for food and clothes. This is because furniture pieces like your bed frame are designed to last. However, there will come a time when you need to replace your best-loved bed frame. High-quality bed frames can last a lifetime, while others can offer their style and purpose for decades. The average lifespan of bed frames is 10–20 years, depending on the quality of materials, the integrity of the construction, and the daily wear and tear the bed receives. 

While bed frames are generally constructed from durable materials, they start to be less stable and comfortable when they are used for seven years or more. They will show signs of wear and tear and become less comfortable than they used to be.

Here are some signs that you need to replace your bed frame.

Your Bed Produces Creaking Sounds

Some of the first signs of deteriorating bed frame quality are creaking sounds. If you hear creaking sounds from your bed frame when you lie down, it can be a sign that your bed is already worn out or has a deteriorated stability. These sounds can be disturbing, especially when you toss and turn a lot during sleep. 

There are Damaged Wooden Parts

Damaged parts are not only unsightly, but they can contribute to your bed being less supportive. In many cases, damaged bed components can cause your bed to collapse. Some split wooden parts can be seen from poorly created wooden bed frames. These tiny splits may look minor at first, but can cause bigger damage when left unaddressed. In this case, it’s vital to check your wooden bed frame to spot some potential damage, especially if you hear creaking sounds when you sleep. Always buy wooden bed frames made from quality wood to prevent early damage and inconvenience.

Your Mattress is Not Properly Supported

Your bed frame and mattress work hand in hand to provide you with a cosy night’s rest. However, if your bed frame does not have the same size as your mattress or if it is not supportive enough to partner with your mattress type, you might not enjoy the best of your sleep. If your mattress is not the same size as your bed or if it sinks when placed on the bed frame, you need a better sleep solution. 

The right bed frame has the correct mattress base that supports your mattress type. If the mattress sinks, your wooden slats might be too far. It can also be an indication that your mattress base is bending or broken.

Other than wooden parts, bed frame hardware can also be subjected to damage, which can cause the bed to collapse. When cleaning your bedroom or rearranging your bedding, it’s important to always check the screws and other parts that keep your mattress standing. If you notice any loose or damaged parts, make sure to fix them at the soonest possible time. If the damage is directly connected to your bed frame and is hard to repair or replace, it’s time to look for a more secure bed frame.

A sagging divan bed does not only look unattractive but can also cause you discomfort. If the padding becomes uneven or saggy, its comfort can also be greatly affected.

Your Bed Does Not Support Your Sleeping Needs

Is your bed too small to keep you comfortable? Are there any major changes to your body and sleeping needs? Are you sharing your bed with someone with a different body type or sleeping needs? Do you experience short and uncomfortable sleep? Like your mattress, your bed should also follow the changes in your sleeping needs to ensure your comfort.
