Is it Time to Replace Your Bed Frame?

Bed Frame

Is it time to get a new bed frame? Here are a few signs.

No mattress is complete without a solid bed frame to go along with it and support it. However, a bed frame is only designed to last so long. Like most items in your home, your bed frame is susceptible to a natural wear and tear that comes with how often and how heavily used this piece of furniture accessory is used. That is why it is important for you to look out for the warning signs that your bed frame is reaching the end of its usable life, and that it may be time to replace your current bed frame. Here are a few examples of signs you might notice when it is time to replace your bed frame.


We all hear them coming from our beds, but usually we just accept the creaking noises for what they are and learn to ignore them. This is wrong. These creaks are the first sign that your frame is no longer in the same condition it was when you first bought it. Once you hear the creaks, it is time to check your bed frame for further signs that it is time for a new one.

Mattress sinking

If you feel like when you are in your bed that your mattress is sinking, this is actually a potential issue with your frame. This is because most bed frames have a wooden slat that are easily capable of bending or breaking, so if your mattress is sinking, it is most likely because of this.

Wood is damaged

If you notice that the wood of your bed frame is damaged in any wear, such as the wood splitting or cracking that is yet another reason you will need to invest in a brand new bed frame. You will notice these damages in the support of the frame, which is a major sign of needing to be replaced as it can actually be dangerous to you if left unaddressed. If these damages go unnoticed or unchanged, your bed could potentially collapse with you or someone else in it, causing potential harm and injury. So avoid a hazardous situation, and replace your bed frame as soon as possible.
