Having a custom bed frame can really elevate your bedroom and take your aesthetic to the next level. But with so much inspiration out there, how can you find custom bed frame ideas that will suit your space? We’ve got just the answer.

Living Designs Furniture is a Houston furniture manufacturer that creates custom upholstered bed frames for a more affordable price due to our factory-direct business practices. Here is how you can create a custom bed frame that will speak to your personal style.

1. Evaluate your space

If you’re going to invest in a custom built bed frame, you need to ensure that it will not only elevate your space but it will also fit in your space. Literally. It’s time to get out the measuring tape! Having the dimensions of your bedroom and mattress while visualizing where the bed will be can help you to better understand just what you need out of your design.

Living Designs Furniture can make any custom size bed frame in any desired shape. No project is too big or too small. Just look how we designed this custom built bed frame for Slim Thug — a Texas-sized bed for a Houston legend!

Before you visit our showroom to begin the design process, have photos and the dimensions of your space handy so that our furniture experts can build exactly what you are looking for. 

2. Look for the best materials

Verifying that quality materials are used during the furniture design and creation process is a huge part of what to look for when buying furniture. You want to ensure that the piece that you’re designing will be built-to-last, not just look pretty. 

Most furniture manufacturers make their bed frames with metals, particle boards, or plastic when they should be made with wood. If all the major chains do this, and many of them do, you may be wondering how to get a custom bed frame out of wood. Simple! Create your custom bed frame with Living Designs Furniture!

We create all of our bed frames and headboards using sturdy, solid wood from White Oak, Red Oak, and Cypress that is both durable and heavy! Your beautiful bed frame will last much longer when it is created from quality materials, saving you time and money.

What is the best type of fabric for a headboard? 

Other furniture websites will tell you that a certain fabric like cotton, polyester, or linen is the best type of fabric for a headboard. In reality, the best fabric is whichever one will deliver the look and feel you are going for! 

Do you want a more moody, fashionable feel or do you prefer a breezy, airy energy to your room? Do you have pets or kids that will be sleeping in the bed with you? All of these factors including your lifestyle will determine what fabric may suit you best.

For example, cotton is great for low-maintenance, classic styles whereas velvet fabric is perfect for those who want to make a bold statement! There are endless possibilities to express your personality while also being practical to your lifestyle. We have endless fabric options that come in thousands of colors so you can have exactly what you want. 

Do you have your own fabric that you’d prefer to use? Great! Bring it with you when you visit our showroom and we will bring that vision to life.
