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:
by Best Price Mattress Classic Solid Wood Platform Bed
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!

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.

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.
by Zinus Mid- Century Wood Platform Bed
A Beautiful Classic Mid- Century Design, with great mattress support and a sharp strong wood headboard.
Bed by CB2 Drommen Acacia Wood
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.

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

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.

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.
by Copeland Furniture Astrid Platform Bed
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:
by Zinus Judy Geometric Upholstered Bed
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.
by Zinus Dori Square Stitched Wingback Bed
Another winner by Zinus, we love this one again for its low price point and beautiful square stitched headboard.
by Joss & Main Alrai Upholstered Panel Bed
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.

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.
by Joss & Main Landy Linen Platform Bed
We love the Landy Linen bed’s low profile, slim lines, and metal legs which compliment the warm and stylish color options.
by Burke Decor Newhall Bed
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.
by Room & Board Avery Bed
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.
by Anthropologie Lena Bed
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).

This funky modern bed is simple, fun, and somehow still elegant. It’s made from a mix of hardwood and plywood and durable fabrics.
by Joybird Hughes Bed
The Hughes Bed has a beautiful tufted headboard and a great mid-century style, all with high quality build and materials and hand crafted
by Rove Concepts Harper Bed
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.
by Joybird Macey Bed
Premium materials and a truly elegant, hotel-esque design make the Macey Bed by Joybird one of our all time favorites.
by Serena & Lily Broderick Bed
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:
by IKEA Nordli
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.
by Trent Austin Design Arianna Storage Bed
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.
by Room & Board Marlo Bed with Storage Drawer
A beautifully upholstered bed with a high headboard and a functional drawer at the foot.
