Iron bed in bedroom – the type of bed which is used most rarely and I perfectly understand why. There’re a lot of examples on the Internet where the metal bed looks indeed ugly. It doesn’t fit everywhere – you need a completely good perception of style.
Having analysed the examples it became clear that iron beds most perfectly fit in rustic style interiors as well as mid-century bedrooms. Most usually they find the place in children’s rooms. Even though metal is a cold and not cosy material from its nature, it can really find some space at your home, especially when metal leg and shelve constructions are so popular. If you don’t like the metal colour, you can always paint a bed the colour that you want.
What are the advantages of iron beds?
A low price comparing it with a bed covered with tapestry;
Their maintenance doesn’t require attention at all;
Longevity and firmness;
The choice of style. Simple or frames that are suitable to the classical style – you have the right to choose!
So that the metal bed looked nicer I would advise you to bring more metal details, for example, metal illuminators and handles, etc.
