Before you pin another photo to your “bedroom inspo” Pinterest board, take a gander at the best bed frames on Amazon, which are sturdy, stylish, and affordable. Not to mention, they’ll be at your doorstep in a few days if you have Prime (which you should, given Prime Day usually happens in July).
A select few humans can actually make a mattress on the floor look chic, and we can’t guarantee that you’re one of them. So don’t fret—we scoured the retailer to find the best bed frames on Amazon that suit all kinds of styles, sleepers, and price points. You’ll find upholstered and tufted options, minimalist wood platforms, strong canopy foundations, a few with built-in storage options, and more. There’s no box spring needed for any of these, either. The best part? A handful of these are on sale ahead of Prime Day, so add ’em to your cart ASAP, because if you snooze, you lose (pun intended).
Prices reflect queen-size beds. However, most of them are available in additional sizes.
With nearly 13,000 five-star reviews, this minimalist wood bed is a good option for anyone on a budget who still wants a sleek, put-together look. It has wood slats so you don’t need a box spring, and lifts high enough off the ground that you can slide storage containers underneath. Plus, it’s a great starter platform bed if you’re not ready to shell out major cash on something like the Floyd.
We tested this Zinus metal platform bed frame, writing, “The bed frame is easy to move around [and] high enough to give you ample storage space. It didn’t squeak, it didn’t creak, and the mattress stayed exactly where I put it.” It comes together in about 10 minutes with just one person assembling it, and our tester found that their mattress stayed put. If you want extra reinforcement, it comes with long, narrow stickers that you can affix to your mattress to keep it from shifting.
Give your room a stately feel with this bed frame from Allewie, which looks more expensive than it actually is (a major win). It has a tufted headboard so you can snuggle up with a book comfortably, and it also has four hidden storage drawers for stashing sweaters, blankets, and anything else that doesn’t fit in your closet.
Have you been dreaming of a dramatic, Disney Princess–esque canopy bed since childhood? Then we found a great bed for you, as this frame provides a modern foundation for one. It comes with metal slat support, and reviewers say it’s easy to set up and feels sturdy. It’s reinforced with middle bed legs, too, plus plenty of height for underbed storage.
Mr. Kate’s upholstered bed frame is finished with soft, ribbed velvet, plus brushed brass accents that will level up any bedroom. It has a platform design with side rails to keep your mattress from moving, plus center legs for more stability.
The spindled headboard, high-quality craftsmanship, and price of this Zinus pick practically make it a no-brainer. We reviewed this wood platform bed, writing, “For the price, I truly don’t think the quality can be beat. And the style of the Linda is pretty agnostic—it’s a little midcentury, a little Scandinavian—so much so that I can imagine it fitting into a host of home decor aesthetics, from a cozy cabin to something more minimalist or beachy or boho.”
The tufted design of this platform bed creates a sophisticated, elegant look—without being stuffy or old-fashioned. It has easy assembly (only seven steps, and you don’t even need to get out your drill) and it’s compatible with ergonomic adjustable bed bases. You can choose from a few neutral colors too.
Say you already have a headboard that you can’t imagine parting with. There’s no need for a bed frame that has one included. This best-selling no-frills pick from Linenspa provides a solid metal base for your mattress and nothing else. It’s fitted with steel slats, and if you don’t like the look of metal, you can fit the base with a bed skirt. Like others on this list, it has a high clearance for more storage opportunities.
For small rooms that want to make their beds an aesthetic focal point, we recommend this one from Mr. Kate. It’s made with soft, velvet upholstery and has four built-in drawers that reviewers note are surprisingly roomy.
This low-profile Acacia wood frame adds a rustic touch to your boudoir. You can adjust the headboard from 39 to 45 inches, so if you have a loftier mattress, you’ll still have something to lean on when you’re propped in bed. The frame also comes with Velcro strips to keep your mattress locked in place.
If you want to go the vintage-style route without the hassle of sourcing a vintage headboard, Allewie’s is a solid option. It has the marks of a good bed frame, according to reviewers: side rails, metal support slats, versatility, and a noise-free design.
For anyone still navigating their personal sense of interior design, we recommend choosing a bed frame that will fit a number of different styles. This one has a solid wood adjustable headboard with wood slats that act as a platform, plus handsome brass-capped legs. Reviewers were impressed by the high quality construction and ease of assembly.
Go ahead, buy a yellow bed frame. Why? Because it’s plush, bold, and instantly becomes the center of attention. And that means if you’re moving into a new space, you don’t need to spend as many hours putting together a gallery wall, or worse, decorating shelves with an array of tchotchkes.
