Sleep is a precious thing. If we’re lucky, we’ll spend at least a quarter of our days living out some sort of alternate, fantastical lives dreaming in our beds. Imagine not investing into a piece of furniture where you’ll spend 25% or more of your life.

Though your mattress and pillows play a crucial role in making sure you find your way to a fulfilling sleep, the bed frame does matter. From the aesthetic pleasantries of entering and being in your bedroom helping to calm you down after a long day, to the stability and lack of noise a great bed frame will offer, a bed is a purchase that if gone wrong will literally keep you up at night.

In building our list we looked at user reviews, quality of materials, style, value, return policies & company support (since you never know when you’ll be unhappy), and of course, our own personal experiences where applicable.

That being said, these are our picks for the best bed frames of 2019:

Best wooden bed frames of 2019:

Classic Solid Wood Platform Bed by Best Price Mattress

For your money, you won’t find better. This understated yet somehow beautiful, sturdy, and functional frame comes in at just over $200 for a king size. A KING size!

Penelope Mid-Century Bed by Baxton Studio

A funky upholstered button tufted headboard gives this mid-century inspired bed a bit of extra oomph at all at a very fine price point.

Benjamin Platform Bed by Langley Street

The geometric designs on this solid Mahogany bed add a touch of mid-century flare, and at just around $700 for a king with the headboard included this is a great buy.

Mid- Century Wood Platform Bed by Zinus

A Beautiful Classic Mid- Century Design, with great mattress support and a sharp strong wood headboard.

Drommen Acacia Wood Bed by CB2

We love the Drommen as expressed in our review here. Similar to the Bolig Bed above but with a beautifully upholstered headboard, the Drommen is hard to get out of in the best possible way.


Orva Mid Century Modern Solid Walnut Wood Slatted Headboard Platform by Baxton Studio

A touch of woody forest adds some solid charm to this mid-century inspired frame by Baxton Studio.

Tiller Bed by Burke Decor

The Tiller Bed has a beautiful combination of industrial design with reclaimed wood and a touch of elegance in the brass legs.

Best Bed frames
We love the mid-century meets log cabin look of the Craut solid wood platform bed by Loon Peak. The low profile and strong angles create unique character while maintaining simplicity.

Harbour Cane Bed by Serena & Lily

Solid hardwood, fluted legs, and beautiful rattan headboard and footboard. This elegant bed brings together classic and modern elements in tasteful fashion and is built to last.

Oak Sands Bed by Anthropologie

The Oak Sands Bed is crafted from solid French oak, has beautiful grain throughout and a minimalistic yet regal style. Timeless in both build and design.

May Platform Bed by Miles & May

This truly jaw-dropping bed is built to last a lifetime and has a style that will fetch the awe of anyone you let near it.


Astrid Platform Bed by Copeland Furniture

The Astrid is a well constructed, design-forward frame with optional built-in nightstand side tables and headboards, and a solid platform instead of a slat system.

Best upholstered bed frames of 2019:

Judy Geometric Upholstered Bed by Zinus

Zinus beds tend to be a great bang for your buck and the Judy is no exception. We love the geometric design touch to the headboard, giving it some genuine style tough to find at this price point.

Dori Square Stitched Wingback Bed by Zinus

Another winner by Zinus, we love this one again for its low price point and beautiful square stitched headboard.

Alrai Upholstered Panel Bed by Joss & Main

This hand upholstered bed offers multi-thousand dollar looks at an under thousand dollar price. With a large selection of fabrics you’ll easily feel at home in the Alrai.

Defalco Bed by Foundry Select

The Defalco Platform Bed is a luxurious and modern, low lying bed with an elegant design. It features nice, deep upholstered mattress rails, making getting in and out of, and sleeping in it a joy.

Landy Linen Platform Bed by Joss & Main

We love the Landy Linen bed’s low profile, slim lines, and metal legs which compliment the warm and stylish color options.

Newhall Bed by Burke Decor

This take on a traditional design adds a little bit of modern flair and a tufted headboard to give it a warm and inviting character.

Avery Bed by Room & Board

Construction, construction, construction. Stylish enough, but built like a tank including metal slats. You’ll be hard pressed to find better craftsmanship in this price range.

Lena Bed by Anthropologie

The Lena Bed by Anthropologie has a beautiful, luxurious, celebrity-ready feel to it and grade A construction to keep you stable while you sleep (though we can’t guarantee the same for your dreams).

Nook Bed by Blu Dot

This funky modern bed is simple, fun, and somehow still elegant. It’s made from a mix of hardwood and plywood and durable fabrics.

Hughes Bed by Joybird

The Hughes Bed has a beautiful tufted headboard and a great mid-century style, all with high quality build and materials and hand crafted

Harper Bed by Rove Concepts

This bed basically looks like it’s floating. If that’s not enough for you, try ultra modern style, premium fabric and the entire frame wrapped in a dense foam cushioning.

Macey Bed by Joybird

Premium materials and a truly elegant, hotel-esque design make the Macey Bed by Joybird one of our all time favorites.


Broderick Bed by Serena & Lily

The Broderick has a clean look and engineered hardwood frame constructed with absolutely top-notch mortise-and-tenon jointing. We love the wrap-around upholstered headboard and a large array of custom fabrics.

Best storage bed frames of 2019:

Nordli by IKEA

The Nordli is discreet, functional, and best of all, incredibly affordable. Six drawers give plenty of storage, and though we’re not winning any style awards the lack of headboard gives it a smaller footprint making it ideal for smaller spaces.

Arianna Storage Bed by Trent Austin Design

The Arianna offers an incredible blend of modern and traditional wood design and ample room for additional pillows or night wear in its two front-facing drawers.

Marlo Bed with Storage Drawer by Room & Board

A beautifully upholstered bed with a high headboard and a functional drawer at the foot.

Best adjustable bed frames of 2019:
