A bed frame is the bone structure of your bed. Of course, your mattress is what will affect your comfort in bed the most, but the quality of your bed frame matters too. The bed frame needs to support your mattress correctly to prevent sagging and it needs to last, regardless of how much weight it needs to accommodate.
Bed frames also make a big difference to how you execute your bedroom ideas. The bed is the dominant item of furniture in a bedroom and the bed frame style will, to a large extent, dictate what your bedroom looks like. From whimsical hand-carved four-posters to sleek modern options, the best places to buy bed frames have every style and type of bed frame you could possibly imagine.

This is where to shop for bed frames.
Known for: Furniture, accessories, home decor, outdoor
Available at: Wayfair
Our search for bed frames on Wayfair returned over 1,300 results, which should cover just about every style and type of bed frame you could possibly imagine. The handy search menu on the left allows you to filter the results by material, height, size, and even box spring requirements. So, you could spend a long time browsing for exactly the style you want, or you could quickly narrow down your search to your precise needs. What we really like about Wayfair, though, is its unrivaled versatility of budget points. You could pick up a very decent bed frame there for under $100, or you could splash out on an adjustable bed frame by Hypefurniture, which is nearly $4,000.

Article is for you if you want a curated collection of impeccable bed frames that will suit a variety of bedrooms. Although often referred to as Mid-century, these bed frames aren't just for introducing Mid-century decor into your bedroom design. There are soft upholstered options in delicate neutral colors and classic wood frames with gorgeous detailing and turned legs. You won't need to look for very long to find the perfect one.

Available at: The Home Depot
The Home Depot is where we recommend shopping for a bed frame if you need a very specific option. Their selection of platform beds, storage beds, and adjustable bed frames is impressive. We also like the choice of upholstered options, which makes this a top destination for traditional bedrooms.
Known for: Sofas, bedroom furniture, apartment living
Available at: Apt2b
If you live in an apartment and are exploring small bedroom ideas, the bed frames from Apt2b should definitely be on your radar. The company's calling card is its clever sleeper sofas, which are ideal for truly small spaces and studio apartments. If your apartment is larger and you can afford a full-sized bed frame, there are handy storage bed frames and tasteful upholstered options. We really like the stylish Beacon upholstered bed, with its extra-tall velvet-upholstered headboard.
5. Pottery Barn
Known for: Classic, farmhouse, and coastal style furniture
Available at: Pottery Barn
If your main consideration for your bed frame is a classic, tasteful design, then you can't beat Pottery Barn's carefully crafted offerings. From intricately built herringbone wood headboards to elegant four-poster options finished in blond and ash, this is the place you go for impeccable attention to detail. If you are decorating a farmhouse bedroom, this is the only online place to buy a bed frame you need.
Known for: Furniture, home decor, soft furnishings
Available at: Anthropologie
Anthropologie is the best place to buy a bed frame if you're after a statement bed frame. You won't find cheap options here, but every bed frame the company makes is a work of art that will completely transform your bedroom design. There are elegant velvet-upholstered frames (that are customizable, by the way), whimsical hand-carved Lombok frames, and light-as-a-feather rattan options - your imagination is the limit here. Unusual shapes and curved headboards and a wide variety of colors make this selection of bed frames the most unique on our list.
7. West Elm
Known for: Modern furniture, home decor
Available at: West Elm
If you'd like to try to incorporate Mid-century modern decor into your bedroom design, then West Elm is the place to get a bed frame that will have a modern take on the style. West Elm's signature is the warm teak finish that is so much loved by Mid-century design enthusiasts, but the bed frame shapes are modern and will suit any bedroom.
8. Floyd Home
Known for: Customizable modular beds, storage, tables
Available at: Floyd Home
If the last thing you feel like doing is browsing through hundreds of bed frames, then you should check out Floyd Home. They make just one bed frame, called, appropriately, The Bed, and you can get it in a variety of wood finishes, sizes, and can add a headboard and storage if you need them. The design is sleek and versatile and will suit most bedrooms. A simple, high-quality solution to the bed frame search.
Known for: wood platform beds, living, dining, textiles
Available at: Restoration Hardware
If you're looking for something completely different, and very high quality, head to Restoration Hardware for platform beds handmade from exquisite burled wood. The natural grain gives the bed frames a beautiful pattern and the bed frames themselves come in a nice range of options, from platform configurations to four posters. We also like that the bed frames come with footboards, which not all bed frames do.
Known for: Flatpack platform beds, bedroom furniture, bedroom essentials
Available at: Thuma
Thuma is a one-stop bedroom destination where you can get absolutely everything you need, from the thoughtfully crafted bed frame to nightstands, sheets, and even a few bedroom accessories like candles and bed socks. The bed frame is modern but versatile and can easily be assembled at home, which makes it perfect for homes with narrow doorways.
