Should You Buy a Bed Frame and Mattress Combo?

By Jonny Haskins 27 March 2024


In the world of mattresses and bed frames, there are thousands, perhaps near an infinite number of options available. 

This choice is enough to make your head spin, so we completely understand why you may feel paralysed. This paralysis, though, can prevent you from fully enjoying your bedtime rituals with a supportive bed frame and mattress to boot. 

Do you choose a wooden bed frame on its own and add your own mattress? Or do you choose a bed frame and mattress combo for simplicity’s sake? Whichever option you go for, it helps to do some research beforehand to make sure you’re making the right decision. 

Here, we’ll explore the world of bed frames with accompanying mattresses to make that decision a little easier.

Reasons to Buy a Bed Frame and Mattress Combo

Firstly, let’s explore some of the main reasons why you would want to pick a bed frame that comes with a mattress:

No more measuring

If you value convenience over customisation, picking a bed frame with a mattress might be the best option for you.

There’s no need to mess about with measurements or sizing up an existing mattress; with a full bed frame and mattress combo, you simply choose a design you like, select the type of mattress you want, and we handle everything else.

Guaranteed compatibility

By design, choosing a bed with a mattress guarantees a perfect fit with whichever suggested mattress is available to pair with your new bed frame. 

At Get Laid Beds, we make sure to handle all the tricky parts beforehand including: taking measurements, checking weight limitations, and choosing only our comfiest mattresses at any one time. 

All of this ensures that when your bed frame arrives, you can start enjoying it as soon as possible.

Unified Warranty

As a consumer, having varying levels and durations of warranties can make your head spin. Especially for things like furniture, of which you’d expect to last a long time. Keeping track of all this can feel overwhelming.

When buying a bed with a mattress, you can rest assured knowing your warranty start dates are in sync. For bed frames, we offer an unmatched 11-year warranty, whereas our mattresses can vary between three and seven years in length.

Simplified Returns

We’re sure you’ll love your new bed frame and mattress combo. But, if you’re not happy; we’re happy enough to investigate and start a return. We abide by the Distance Selling Regulations in the UK, meaning you have 14 days to return the bed and mattress if you change your mind.

Having bought both your mattress and bed frame from one retailer, your returns process is simplified significantly. No more tracing down receipts or invoices from multiple email addresses or fumbling about with varying return locations; everything is handled via one retailer.

Reasons to Buy a Bed Frame and Mattress Separately

Similarly, there can be some compelling reasons to choose a more traditional set up when buying your next bed, including:


Are you a picky sleeper? Maybe you’re just confident with what you like. If so, you might be reluctant to swap out a tried and tested mattress in the pursuit of experimentation.

This is understandable, of course, especially for those with back problems who have bought a specific type or brand of mattress for a reason. Buying a bed frame alone allows you to keep your current mattress in place for many more years, maximising its lifetime. 

Already Having a Good Mattress

As the saving goes: if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!

If your existing mattress is already serving your needs, there’s not much point in investing in a new one.

If your bed frame itself is the issue, we also sell mattresses on their own. Available in the same sizes as the combinations, from small singles to super Caesars, there’s a style (and size) that’s perfect for you.


If you’re quite particular and choosey, you may not wish to be tied down to one type or style of mattress at any one time. If this sounds like you, it’s probably more suitable to choose a bed frame and mattress separately. 

To be clear, choosing a bed frame with a mattress doesn’t lock you down to a specific type of mattress. They can be swapped out – but it may be more effective to buy a bed separately so that you don’t then have to return the mattress itself. 

Time for a New Bed Frame?

Has the time arrived for a new bed frame? Hopefully these considerations have helped that decision process become much quicker.
