What sizes of metal beds do we stock?

Our metal beds come in almost every standard UK size; our ranges include small single (75 x 190cm), single (90 x 190cm), small double (120 x 190cm), double (135 x 190cm) and king size (150 x 200cm). The only standard size that is not available is the super king. These dimensions display the size of the mattress that the metal beds can support, and due to the variation of designs from an array of brands, each metal bed frame's size will differ slightly and will be stated within their product pages. Use the filters above to narrow your search and shop by size.

How do I construct a metal bed?

Metal beds are delivered flat-packed and require construction. Each metal bed frame will have instructions and a tool, such as an Allen key, to attach the pieces together. In addition, most of our metal beds come with wooden slats, which will also have instructions on how to place these correctly.

What types of metal bed frames are there?

Standard metal beds

Besides our other types of metal framed beds described in greater detail below, our primary collection consists of metal beds of a variety of styles and sizes. Because our metal bed collection uses wooden or metal slats, ample space underneath the metal frames is excellent for storage drawers. To read more about the different aesthetics, read below.

Metal bunk beds

Most bunk beds are constructed from a wooden or metal frame due to their sturdy and durable nature. Our metal bunk beds come in a variety of sizes, with many featuring two small singles or single sizes stacked on one another. Moreover, a selection of bunk beds showcases a small double mattress on the bottom and a single mattress on top, which is perfect for a trio of siblings who share a bedroom. Regardless of which metal bunk bed frame you settle on, you can on our range for elegant style and a robust framework.

Metal day beds

Perfect for solo sleepers, a child's room or a guest bedroom and can even be used as a seating area, our range of day beds are often constructed from metal. Including side rails and often accompanied by a trundle bed, metal day beds make a great option when you have guests around to stay.

What styles of metal bed frames are available?

Because metal bed frames are constructed from sturdy materials such as steel or nickel, there is not much style variation compared to an upholstered bed frame. Instead, metal bed frames showcase a variety of colour schemes, including crisp white, creams, silver, gold, bronze, and classic black metal beds. With such a wide array of options, you're sure to find your dream bed whether it's for a traditionally-styled or modern bedroom.


Often identified by the classic finials on each post of the corners of the bed, metal bed frames are known for their traditional aesthetic. Often combining straight lines with conventional rounded finials and shaker-style headboards, you can embody a quintessential vibe in your bedroom with this style of metal bed frame. Brands that showcase this style include Limelight, Birlea and Heartlands Furniture. We find our bronze and black metal bed frame collection to be a popular choice among traditional bedrooms. For easy navigation, our website allows you to search via colour, style, bed slats and more filters. 


We have various more contemporary bed frames on the other side of the spectrum. Including minimalist and angular structures, this style brings modernity to the bedroom aesthetic. To view styles like these, brands such as GFW and LPD Furniture have created some brilliant designs. Another way in which you can showcase your metal bed frame as contemporary is through the colour scheme. In particular, our white metal bed frame collection is renowned for its sleek and modern styles.

What metal bed frame brands do we stock?

Because metal beds are fantastic value for money, many of our trusted brands and manufacturers have created a collection showcasing them. Including Julian Bowen, Limelight, Dorel, GFW, Birlea, Heartlands Furniture, LPD Furniture and more, you can rely on these brands to provide you with a reliable metal bed frame. With our range catered towards a wide range of bedroom styles, we're sure to feature your dream bed frame at an affordable cost. 

What are the benefits of metal bed frames?

Metal is a highly durable material with fantastic longevity, so with proper care of the bed frame, you can expect it to last many years. Furthermore, a metal frame is a great choice as they are easy to maintain and clean. You only need a damp and dry microfibre cloth to wipe down and dry off, and the metal bed is as good as new.

What size bed should I consider?

It's important not to fall into the trap of purchasing a bed frame without considering whether it's a suitable fit for your room. Ideally, your bed will be the largest piece of furniture within your room whilst allowing for plenty of space for a chest of drawers, a wardrobe and like-minded items. For instance, a king size metal bed frame may not be a suitable option for a room with limited space, and in this case, a single metal bed frame could be a more suitable option. We often find that a metal double bed frame proves a popular choice for the majority of bedrooms and strikes the ideal balance between a spacious bed and furniture that isn't overpowering.
