The 10 Best Bed Frames for the Sexually Active Couple Reviewed

Nothing ruins the mood like a squeaky bed frame, and for couples looking to take advantage of personal time, trying to keep a loud bedframe quiet can put a damper on things. Whether you’re looking to get some privacy from your next-door neighbors, or are hoping to avoid giving your kids another “we’re just playing Twister” excuse, choosing the right bedframe can help you reduce unnecessary noise so you can focus on pure pleasure.

While almost everyone has had some experience with a squeaky bed frame, whether in personal experience or with an inconsiderate neighbor, for the sexually active couple, your bed should be an oasis of personal pleasure, not a warzone of squeaks and creaks. For some couples, having the right bed frame can be the difference between a night of revelry and a disappointing evening. That’s why it’s important to invest in a sturdy bedframe. But how can you choose the right bed frame for you?

Choosing the Right Bedframe for You

There are a few key things to keep in mind when investing in a bed frame that will enhance your bedroom activities. Firstly, you should consider what materials the bed is made from. While we all associate metal bedframes with unwanted noise, a poorly constructed wooden frame can be even worse, as those telltale creaks and groans can giveaway more than you feel like sharing with your neighbors or housemates. A well-made metal bed frame can be just as reliable as a padded bed frame, so long as it is properly constructed, and the ability to tighten screws and oil joints gives a metal bed frame a leg up over some wooden bed frames.

The next thing to keep in mind is the state of the headboard. While some couples don’t feel like a headboard is that important to their overall enjoyment of their bed, a headboard can offer added leverage for certain activities and can give your bedroom an overall put-together appearance. Another thing to keep in mind is that any headboard can cause noise if placed too close to the wall, so be sure to give your headboard a bit of breathing room between it and the wall. A padded headboard can give you additional comfort, and the bonus of innate soundproofing, making it ideal for the sexually active couple. Whatever your consideration, be sure that the headboard is securely attached to your bed to prevent added creaks and bumps during personal time.

Another thing to keep in mind is how many points of contact your bed frame has with the floor. While a traditional bed frame has four points of contact (one on each corner), this can lead to a sagging mattress and excessive noise. Meanwhile, choosing a bed with between six to even fourteen points of contact can help ground your bed, leading to less movement and more discrete bedroom activities. Keep in mind that an uneven bedframe with multiple points of contact can still lead to additional noise, so ensure that your floor is level before deciding to give up on the whole bed frame. On the topic of points of contact, keep in mind that some bedframes require box springs for added stability, which can lead to added noise. However, box springs can also help muffle noise, and elevate your bed itself, so if you are a fan of a raised bed you may want to invest in a frame that works with a box spring. Otherwise, be sure that your mattress can withstand being the only thing between you and your bed frame.
