A reinforced bed is, as the name suggests, a bed that has been strengthened in certain areas - normally the bed frame itself, but not always. These incredibly durable beds can handle a lot of weight, but you don’t need to be overweight to use one. In fact, thanks to superior build quality and attention to detail found in reinforced beds, it could be viewed as a wise investment as they are definitely built to last.
Reinforced beds have become quite popular in recent years, offering incredible strength and weight capacity that is unparalleled in any standard bed. As their popularity has grown, so too has the styles, designs and materials found in reinforced beds. Below is a summary of the most common types of reinforced beds available today.
Wrought iron frame beds
These reinforced beds come in a wide range of styles and shapes, with a material strong enough that the bed does not usually require central supporting legs. This is a great option if you are going for a specific look or want some additional space under the bed.
Fabric reinforced beds
As the technology of reinforced beds advances, it is becoming harder to spot the differences between a regular bed and a reinforced one. This has never been more true for fabric beds, which offer a traditional look with superior weight support.
The current range of reinforced metal beds offers some of the strongest reinforcement on the market, supporting incredible weights with no problem at all. They are slightly limited in their design, however.
You might not think it, but there are many wooden beds on the market that offer a level of support similar to other reinforced beds. Advanced wood joints such as dovetails, and a more dependable timber, has allowed for some serious heavy-duty wooden beds.
Reinforced divan bases
Divan beds are a stylish option that many people overlook because they fear it lacks sufficient support. Thankfully, using a blend of hardwoods in the corners and reinforced top rails, divan beds are now available as reinforced beds too.
As the market for reinforced beds continues to grow, it is only a matter of time before the above list expands even further. For now, though, there is already a fantastic range of reinforced beds on the market for even the most discerning consumer. From divan bases to wrought iron frames, there is a reinforced bed out there for everyone.
