We understand that consumers often turn to wood as a building material because of its longevity, so in picking our bed frames, we looked for strong and durable construction. Including both minimalistic as well as more elaborate designs was also important. With the trend of platform beds on the rise, we tried to mostly incorporate selections that won't require a box spring.
Those looking for a statement piece for their room may like the Home Accent Furnishings Rustic Industrial, which has a striking combination of distressed wood veneer and metal hardware. If you prefer a more classic style, there is the Acme Louis Philippe III, with its sleigh bed design and sophisticated cherry finish. Though similar in aesthetic, the Home Styles Lafayette King Sleigh had some connecting hardware that proved to be flimsy, so we eliminated it during this update.
If you need something with a somewhat plain style to easily match your decor, the Cardinal And Crest Modern Platform is a good subtle choice that has impressive construction. On the note of impressive construction, we learned the slats on the Fashion Bed Group Murray can crack over time, so we removed that item. Another one we eliminated during this latest update was the Leggett & Platt Home Textiles. Despite being durable and attractive, it doesn't properly fit a standard queen size mattress, so we thought it prudent to remove it.
If your child often has sleepovers, the Max & Lily Twin Trundle offers a smart way to make a comfortable sleeping area for occasional guests without taking up permanent floor space. With its shelves for things like reading lamps or photos, the Coaster Home Furnishings Jessica Eastern helps you make the most of a small room, too.

We made sure to find frames that showed just how versatile wood can be. It doesn't all have to be pieces ready for a forest cabin. We included very modern looks, more antique designs, those with clean lines, and some with the beautiful flaws you may want from the material. We believe anyone can be sold on this type of furniture, based on our compiled list.
Crate And Barrel Cas King Oak Bed Each Crate And Barrel Cas King Oak Bed will look slightly different as the veneer has natural imperfections that give it a rustic appeal. Its tall headboard blends seamlessly with its sturdy base that can support up to 800 pounds, and, while it is expensive, it is built to last for years to come. crateandbarrel.com
Scandinavian Designs Bolig Bed The Scandinavian Designs Bolig Bed has a light walnut stain that can brighten up a room and clean lines that make it easy to pair with other furniture. It's made with a combination of robust poplar and fiberboard, and it has a moderately-tall, angled headboard for leaning up against. It is available in a twin or king size. scandinaviandesigns.com
