Because we spend the most time in bed while lounging at home (apart from the couch), it's a smart idea to invest in a bed frame and headboard that look good, feel cohesive with the rest of your bedroom furniture, and act as a retreat from everything else.
According to AllModern General Manager Reena Person, a bed is a major piece of furniture that's worth taking the time to shop around for. Unlike bedside tables, lamps, and artwork that can easily be swapped out, you typically keep a bed for years.

"With this in mind, getting the look and feel right is really important. Think about what you are drawn to in terms of material — wood, metal, upholstered — and then try to lean more timeless in style," Person says. "This is a place to go evergreen rather than high trend. If your style is more midcentury than industrial, you will want to look for warm walnut finishes. If minimalist is your thing, a streamlined metal bed softened with linen bedding will do the trick."

What to Consider When Buying a Bed Online
For starters, Person recommends measuring your space and keeping in mind the dimensions of the bed and the other pieces of furniture in your room, like your nightstands.
"The bed is the largest piece of furniture in the bedroom, and it can make a small room look and feel even smaller if the bed is too big," Person adds.
Compare the size of the bed you want to buy to the one you already own, Person recommends. "It is often hard to visualize dimensions, so this is a great way to do it with furniture already in your home."
Secondly, read reviews thoroughly to avoid any pitfalls. "It's a great way to get an idea of how the piece really works in people's homes," Person says. "If the retailer offers material samples, make sure to order them. There's no better way to see how that green velvet you love works in your space."
