During the 18th century, iron was used in the construction of beds to solve the issue of pests that had been living in the wood of the beds and wreaking damage on the mattresses. Besides being incredibly resistant, iron also allowed people to create various types of ornaments and straight lines.
Due to their various characteristics, iron headboards have survived the years and continue to be popular. Although it is not the most used type of bed at the moment, its style and potential to give old furniture a new lease on life are still attracting attention.
How to choose an iron bed?
When it comes to choosing a new iron headboard, it’s important to consider its dimensions. Having the right measurements is the first step to ensuring that the furniture will fit seamlessly into your space. Besides the size of the bed, you also need to decide where it will be placed.
One of the most important factors that you should consider when it comes to choosing a new iron headboard is its size. For instance, if you have a single bed, it’s possible to have both sides of the bed resting against the wall. Having both sides free will allow you to enjoy better circulation in the bedroom.
If you already have a mattress, make sure that it fits perfectly on the bed that you choose.
