Bed-Buying 101: Different Types of Bed Frames

They say you can’t build a great building without a solid foundation. Ensure that you’re building the bed of your dreams by choosing the correct bed frame for your needs with the help of our guide:

 

1. Modern spin on a timeless classic

Experience an upgrade from your standard, clunky 4-legged bed frame when you select a bed frame with a modern twist. Tapered legs can lend character, while angled legs provide a fun and unique silhouette. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different leg lengths to suit your lifestyle needs!

 

2. Smart storage solutions

Astrid by Commune merges form and functionality with a built-in storage compartment under the bed.

 

Regardless of room size, it never hurts to have a little more space to store stuff. The saving grace for smaller apartments, bed frames can offer smart, built-in storage. Go for a drawer-type bed frame that you can pull out from under the bed if you have the floor space, or opt for an ottoman bed that lifts the mattress up a la treasure chest.

 

3. Incorporating wood

The wood finish on Commune’s sleek, understated Bowie bed allows your choice of bedding and cushions to pop.

 

One of the most versatile materials when it comes to pairing with your bedding and pillows, wooden bed frames boast variety. From being some of the most intricately designed when carved and etched, to smooth, simple finishes, there’s definitely something for everyone.

 

4. Platformed beds

A pallet platform bed frame pairs perfectly with Commune’s Dualtone bench.

 

A platform bed frame eliminates the need for box springs and leaves extra room on all 4 sides of the mattress, giving ample space for an end table, night stand or standing lamp.

 

5. Leather bed frames

The Lyla bed frame’s leather finish gives it a classically sleek look. Pair it with the Crimson night stand for textural contrast and a distinctly vintage feel.

 

Leather bed frames are the pinnacle of form and functionality. Easy to wipe down and maintain compared to fabric upholstery, it’s difficult to go wrong with this classic. Simplicity is key here, making this bed frame easy to incorporate into the bedroom style of your choice.
