- The Bed Size
First of all, you need to take into account the mattress size. The metal bed you choose depends on your mattress size. For example, those who have a queen size mattress can go for queen-sized metal beds. If you have a king-size mattress, king-sized beds are available.

- The Foundation
There are two kinds of metal bed frames. These are the platform metal bed or the box spring type. Platform bed types are somewhat lower but inexpensive. However, the box spring type offers more height and also improved support for the mattress.
The choice ultimately depends on what you prefer. However, the most common metal beds are the platform types as they are the cozier alternative.

- The Cost
The total cost is the last thing to take into account. How much can you offer to get the best metal bed? It’s more practical to find a metal bed at an affordable cost regardless of your budget.
