Bed is composed of a bedstead and mattress.
Bedstead is responsible for strength and durability of exploitation.
Standard models consist of bed headboard, side panels, foot wall, frame and legs. Headboard as well as the side panels are made of different materials.
The design of the bed does not always provide the foot wall, which is very convenient for people of high growth that does not fit standard sizes. Bed base is most often manufactured from metal mesh, lattice or frame.
Metal mesh is the cheapest but has the least quality. Wooden frame with rails is considered more solid foundation.
Some designs include the bed linen drawers, built-in side panels.
Bed frame can be in two forms:
Two supporting the backrest and fool wall, and two lateral side-bars.
Four bars and hinged backs. Hinged backrest can be two or one (only for head).
If the bed is constructed of the second type (without supporting backs) required support. Most often it is four feet. Although there are other options: the wheels, the side walls, extra-base bottom (podium, platform) and others.
Which framework is preferable? In fact, it does not matter whether on foot will draw bed or on the bars. Any good bed will be in use a long time, but cheap furniture can creak quickly and will require replacement.
However, in fairness it should be noted that the legs of the bed are broken more often than bars. The choice is yours.
