To help you get the bedroom of your dreams, here are 18 minimalist beds that offer a soothing escape.


The Best Minimalist Bed Frames

1. Avocado City Bed Frame (Queen), $945

Made from sustainable and solid wood in Avocado's Los Angeles woodshop, this eco-friendly bed offers a low-profile that's perfect for small spaces.

2. Casper Haven Bed Frame (Queen), $1,595

Roll onto your bed that's as plush as a memory foam mattress. Made from high-quality materials, it has a cushioned headboard that you can use as a backrest and is wrapped in soft felted wool.

Keep it simple with this budget-friendly, steel frame from Wayfair. It boasts clean lines and a slat system to support your mattress without the need for a box spring. Plus, it has a 14-inch clearance, so it's perfect for underbed storage.


4. Zinus Wen Wood Platform Bed Frame (Queen), $182.70

Choose a low-slung bed like this to create the impression of high ceilings. With over 15,000 Amazon reviews and a 4.7-star rating, this beautiful rubberwood frame has foam padded and non-slip tape to minimize noise and to prevent your mattress from annoyingly moving around. And you can't beat the affordable price point.


5. Urban Outfitters Riley Platform Bed (Queen), $699

The pinewood legs, slatted base, and upholstered headboard and frame on this bed introduce cozy vibes into your space while maintaining simplicity. Top it with a neutral duvet for a monochromatic look.


6. Anthropologie Prana Live-Edge Bed (Queen), $1,998

Made of sturdy, solid oak, this sleek, live-edge bed (read: the natural edge of the wood is incorporated into the design of the piece) marries minimalism and nature. Pick from three finishes to complement your color palette: black, sand, and brown.


7. Blu Dot Hunker Queen Bed, $2,650

This streamlined bed has built-in, space-saving walnut nightstands integrated into the upholstered headboard, as well as a slot to organize and hide cords below each nightstand to keep clutter to a minimum. Choose from three neutral shades, including grey, ink, and beige. (Also, the Hunker product name has no relation to us, unfortunately, but it certainly sweetens the deal.)

8. Floyd The Bed Frame With Headboard (Queen), $1,375

Designed with minimalists in mind, this super low-lying wood platform frame doesn't need a box spring, accommodates all mattresses, and is a cinch to put together since it requires no tools. You can make the bed frame even bigger if you decide to upgrade your mattress, thanks to the Expansion Kit.

13. Baxton Studio Valencia Midcentury Modern Fabric Platform Bed (Queen), $411.10
