What makes our Iron beds & Metal bed frames special?

Iron beds are mostly valued for their durability, stylish elegance, cost effective features and versatility. Their ever lasting design means you can pass one down from generation to generation. Cast and wrought iron bed frames were introduced at the end of the 19th century, in the Victorian age. Vintage iron bed frames were handmade from pouring the iron and polishing detailed castings to the last finishing touches. The Original Bed Co has been working with these traditional techniques for the last 20 years. Till we today produce beautifully handcrafted metal bed frames. Each of our beds is hand cast with attention to every little detail.

What are your Iron bed sizes?

Most of our metal bed frames are available as single (90cm x 190cm), double (135cm x 190cm) and king (150cm x 200cm) sizes. Some beds are available in less common sizes such as small single (75cm x 190cm), small double (120cm x 190cm) and super king (180cm x 200cm). Metal bed frames are popular all over the world and our beds are made in a variety of sizes to suit the customers needs. Some of our frames are adapted for European sizes as well. These sizes include 90cm x 200cm, 140cm x 190cm, 140cm x 200cm, 160cm x 200cm.

Iron and brass beds finish

Our iron bed frames are painted in a durable powder coated finish that is designed to withsand the daily rigours of life. Some also mix the painted iron with brass finials, the contrast each metal brings lifting the overall look of the bed. All our brass is hand casted which is then antiqued and then lacquered with a durable protective coating. These brass parts can be usually replaced for either a chromed finish or a painted finish as well.

What colours are iron beds available in?

Iron bed frames are available in traditional colours such as black, white, ivory, silver or pewter. They can also be painted in bespoke colours such as baby blues, powder pinks or aquamarine greens. Black metal bed frames and ivory metal bed frames are the most popular.

Low iron bed frames

In the today's day where space is at a premium our low bed frame range with lower footends allows a better use of space in smaller rooms. While low bed frames growing in popularity, our higher footend iron bedsteads are still very popular. The higher end bedsteads are particularly suited to more traditional settings like a cottage or a farmhouse decor.

What are your cast iron beds storage options?

Metal frame beds make it easier to use the space under the bed as storage. Using wicker baskets or rolling drawers is a clean and convenient storage option. The Original Bed Co. also has a underbed drawer storage option is available to fit on all our metal bed range. This storage option is designed for winter clothes, bed linen, pillows and other soft furnishings. The storage drawers run on rollers and are raised off the ground which makes it easier to clean underneath our iron beds.

Are metal beds durable?

Iron beds are more portable than other types of bed frames. For people who tend to move often metal beds survive moves better than wooden or upholstered beds. Metal which has been painted with our durable finish is able to withstand more punishment than wood and won’t rip like upholstery. Dismantling and assembling our metal bed will, also, not compromise their life in any way.

How do I take care of my metal bed frames?

Maintenance of an iron bedstead is relatively easy, it should be kept clean and as dry as possible. A dry cloth can be used to wipe down the frame every so often to keep it dust free. An iron bed frame will not stain easily and any spills can be easily cleaned with a damp cloth followed by a dry cloth. Tightening the bolts yearly also makes sure it never squeaks.

Iron bed slatted frame

Our metal framed beds come with a slatted frame which are suitable for use with most types of mattresses. We usually only quote water beds as an exception. If your mattress has some special requirements as prescribed by the manufacturer you may get in touch with us and we will be able to guide you on the suitability of your mattress. You may also check out our range of mattresses which are designed for use with our products including our metal framed beds.

Other bed types

We also have other bed categories which you may like to see like our four poster beds, upholstered beds, wood beds or brass beds.
