LUXE TO LESS | METAL BED FRAMES

metalivy

Metal bed frames are still a popular choice for children’s bedrooms. They are fun, bright and add a wow factor to any child’s room. They are a statement piece. I have a aqua one in Miss 3’s room (above) and we love it. We always get a lot of compliments on it when people see it. We bought her the Incy Interior’s Miller Bed. It was on sale but we had to pay $80 in shipping OUCH!! But that’s what I wanted and I was going to have it. That was 2 years ago. Back then there wasn’t any other option. Now there are so many other options, and the prices might surprise you.

INCY

Lets start with the original. I have no complaints about Miss 3’s Incy bed. It is sturdy, well made and so far has stood up against the rough treatment of kids. No marks and still looks as good as the day I bought it. I would recommend it to anyone. Prices start at $549

DOMAYNE

Domayne have their own range of kids metal beds. Available in aqua, yellow and red. I can’t tell you a price as the Domayne site won’t give me one – whats with that?

FANTASTIC FURNITURE

Its hard to believe that Fantastic Furniture have these beds at such low prices. My bestie has these beds for her three chlildren in aqua, white and charcoal. I helped put them together so trust me when I say – these beds are the bomb!! The quality is amazing and once put together, so sturdy. I was blown away. I would definitely buy one and save yourself a couple of hundred dollars. Prices start at $199.

MOCKA

Mocka’s new bed frame line is sure to please! The colours are fluro and fun and a complete steal at only $129.95. They have been so popular that Mocka are currently sold out!

Having only seen the Incy bed and the Fantastic Furniture bed myself, I would say go with the Fantastic Furniture option. I honestly can’t tell much of a difference quality wise between the two beds. Whilst I love Miss 3’sΒ Incy bed, I think had I had the option 2 years ago I would have gone the cheaper version.

Do you have a statement bed in your childs bedroom? Are you a fan of these metal beds?

    Yeah I think it’s absurd that Incy charge that much for a metal bed with a spray of coloured paint on it. Crazy. I ummed and ahhed about getting the FF one for Olivia last weekend but decided to get a timber bed because the metal ones, while bright and fun looking, also remind me of old hospital beds or the metal cots in Tresillian! Now if only someone would sell brightly coloured timber beds I’d be set xx

    My sisters and I all had ‘tube’ beds (the 1970’s version of the metal frame bed) – pedestrian colours of navy, red, white…at the time they were the coolest and I had Sportsgirl striped sheets to match..ha, ha… I love these beds, however a need to create extra storage for my boys means they have day bed styles…maybe a refit of the holiday house in these, love the gorgeous colours x

    I love them and wanted to get one for Miss 5 but we are so short on storage, we ended up getting a high bed with storage drawers/cupboards underneath from Domayne. I’d totally choose aqua though! πŸ™‚

      The incy one is high enough for storage underneath. You can even raise the bed up higher as the child grows. So we currently hide stuff under her bed like lego and her shoe box etc. Aqua was totally my pick as well x

    Now I want a pink bed! Not sure what the husband would have to say about that though? These are just the cutest and that Fantastic Furniture one really is a fantastic price!
