Having a comfortable bed is key, considering how much time we spend snoozing. However, if you are on a budget, you should consider splurging on your mattress and saving on your bed frame. “You don’t need to break the bank to be the king of your castle,” explains interior designer Sabrina Piazza.
Meet the Expert
Sabrina Piazza is a Philadelphia based interior designer and the founder of Living Quarters Interior Design.
Whether your style is more French Country, Industrial, Mid-Century Modern, or anything in between there are so many high-quality, durable, and aesthetically pleasing bed frames to choose from.
Piazza suggests leaning toward upholstered frames, as there are a lot of inexpensive options that look nearly identical to those that cost in the thousands. “If you do your homework, there’s a lot of great upholstered headboards with frames at discounted prices on sites like Wayfair, Overstock, and even Amazon,” she says.
Understated and Modern
Piazza recommends this upholstered bed frame, available in a few different shades, which you can pick up for less than $200 on Wayfair. An added bonus? Because of its platform base, you won’t need a boxspring.
An On-Trend Industrial
This budget friendly metal frame, which is a somewhat industrial take on the classic brass bed, has so much versatility—especially because it comes in metal shades as well as blue and meadow green. Buy two twins for a farmhouse guest room, or a single king for your loft space. The most you are going to pay is $400 for a look that looks way more expensive than that.
For a Playful Kid-Friendly Room
This gorgeous and playful farmhouse bed is an incredibly budget-friendly and fun option for any kid-friendly room. It comes in a variety of colors—including pink and gold—and in both twin and full sizes.
A Perfect Parisian
This black metal bed with brass accents is an elegant addition to any home, ranging from Parisian elegance to European farmhouse.
This platform bed is a masculine and minimalist option for any home. Because it is a platform that uses wood slats, no box spring is needed.
Contemporary Clean Lines
For someone looking to add a little wood and metal to the mix, this platform bed features a sturdy steel frame with wood accents. It is also box spring optional, and comes with a 5-year warranty.
IKEA’s MALM bed is a staple in homes across the world. Recently, the Swedish home goods purveyor gave the classic a major update, adding storage to the mix. Available in five shades with different bed slat choices, this bed has the same clean lines as the original but also boasts four large drawers to stash away your personal items.
A Dreamy Daybed
No matter what your budget is, the IKEA HEMNES Daybed is such a great investment. Whether you need something that doubles as a seating solution for a studio space or guest room, this multi-functional sleeping solution works as a sofa, a single bed, a double bed, and storage. We also love its fresh farmhouse look.
This super simple yet statement making platform bed almost feels like it is floating, and is perfect for a Mid-Century, modern, or Scandinavian style space. We love its clean lines and perfect little wood legs.
