Castlery|Jul 02, 2024

Aside from having the perfect bedroom decor and bedsheets, having the right bed frame can help you achieve your ideal relaxation haven. Not only does it give you the mattress support you need, but having a proper bed frame serves as a focal point in your bedroom and helps to tie the look together. 

But, with so many styles and designs available, it can be overwhelming to choose the perfect one for your bedroom

That’s why we’ve compiled a list of the best bed frames that are in style in 2024. Whether you’re looking for extra storage, a touch of luxury, or a simple and stylish design, we’ve got you covered!

6 best bedframes in 2024

1. Wooden bed frames

In 2024, wooden bed frames continue to be a popular choice for many. They are a timeless favourite that brings a warm, natural element to the bedroom, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere. The grain and texture of the wood add character and can complement a wide range of interior styles.

Furthermore, high-quality wooden bed frames like acacia or walnut wood are incredibly durable and can last for decades with proper care, making them a worthwhile investment.

2. Open-base bed frames

Whether you have a small or an oversized bedroom, you still want to create an illusion of a bigger and airier space. The key to creating that look is with open-base bed frames. 

The open space underneath the bed frame can make the room appear larger and more open, which is especially beneficial for small bedrooms and apartment living. The open space under the bed makes it easier to clean and maintain, as it prevents dust and debris from accumulating in hard-to-reach areas.

3. Upholstered bed frames

Upholstered bed frames have been growing in popularity in recent years and continue to be in style in 2024. These bed frames feature a padded headboard and sometimes a footboard, which can be upholstered in a variety of fabrics such as cotton, linen, or leather. 

The upholstery creates a cosy and inviting atmosphere in the bedroom, making it a popular choice for those who value comfort and relaxation. Additionally, the padded headboard provides extra comfort while sitting up in bed for extended periods of time.

4. Performance fabric bed frames

These beds are made with high-quality, durable fabrics that are designed to withstand wear and tear, stains, and spills. Performance fabrics are typically treated with special coatings that make them water-resistant, easy to clean, and resistant to fading. 

Some of the most common types of performance fabrics used in beds include microfibre, polyester, and acrylic. These fabrics are soft, comfortable, and breathable, making them a great choice for those who prioritise comfort and convenience.

If you have pets or children, performance fabric beds can withstand spills and stains without the need for constant cleaning or worrying about damage. This offers a level of durability and practicality that usual fabric beds do not.

5. Platform bed frames

Even as the years go by, platform bed frames continue to be a top choice in 2024, thanks to their sleek and minimalist design. 

These bed frames feature a low profile design and solid base that eliminates the need for a box spring. Platform bed frames also come in various styles, but usually lean towards a more sleek and modern look, fitting well into minimalist homes.

Many platform bed frames come with built-in storage, making them ideal for maximising space in smaller bedrooms with the extra storage space. Furthermore, as platform beds are low to the ground, they can create the illusion of a taller ceiling and brighter space.

6. Storage bed frames

Storage bed frames are a practical choice for those who need extra storage space in their bedroom. 

They maximise the use of space in your bedroom as you can store your items like clothing or bedding directly under your bed. This way, you don’t take up valuable floor space with a dresser or shelves which can be especially helpful in smaller bedrooms or apartments with limited space.

Aside from the common built-in drawers, there are also lift-up storage beds that allow you to access the storage area by lifting the mattress. Each type of storage bed has its own unique features and benefits, so it's important to consider your needs and preferences when choosing a storage bed.
