Grey has become one of the most popular furniture colors in the industry. Not only is it modern and trendy but it goes with almost any color or decor style and gives a clean look to any room. In this post we have collected our top picks for the best grey bed frames on the market, with options from popular mattress and furniture brands, as well as top picks and trusted/quality options from Amazon. If you are looking for a gray bed frame for your home, this post is a great place to browse. 

What do we consider when choosing a "grey bed frame"?

For us to recommend a grey bed frame on this list it must meet certain criteria. All of the products we recommend are quality products with positive reviews and a nice aesthetic. When it comes to bed frames we choose sturdy frames that hold up to use for years to come without squeaking and shaking. 

Standard bed frames vs platform beds

Not all bed frames are the same. The 2 major options are standard bed sets with a box spring or a platform bed. 

OPTION 1 (Standard Bed): You can have standard metal bed frame that sits 7.5″ off the ground and is utilized with a box spring or (foundations). The mattress then sits on top of the box spring. A standard box spring is 9″ tall but can also be ordered in thinner profiles or you can choose to purchase separate bed slats. If you are looking for a low sitting bed your best option for this route would be to purchase a standard bed frame and put bed slats on top. Although, this does not provide the beauty of a designer bed set. 

OPTION 2 (Platform Bed): Platform beds have become very popular over recent years. They utilize bed slats that are build into the bed frame so that you can simply put your mattress on top without a box spring. This makes your mattress sit lower and gives a modern and designer friendly appeal. If you are looking to achieve a low profile bed setup then a platform bed is likely your best option. 

The different types of grey bed frames

There are a variety of different styles and features when it comes to choosing a bed frame. Each has its own benefits to suit the needs of certain bedrooms, styles and sleep requirements. 

  • Upholstered frame – A grey bed frame with an upholstered headboard is an elegant and cozy style of bed frame. The headboard of an upholstered bed is soft and great for sitting up and reading in bed as well as giving and elegant, yet homey feel to any bedroom. 
  • Platform bed – we have a variety of grey platform beds on this list. A platform bed comes with built in slats for support and does not require a box spring to be used. 
  •  Standard bed frame – A standard bed frame is not a platform bed and does not include bed slats or a platform. When purchasing a standard style bed frame you must also purchase a box spring or bed slats for proper mattress support

Things to consider before purchasing your grey bed frame

Before purchasing your bed frame there are a few features and and options to consider 

  • Price – As with any product, a higher price point generally means a higher quality product. We have included a mix of qualities and prices in this list. While all have great reviews, the higher priced items use superior materials and will generally hold up longer. 
  • Fabric vs metal – Fabric beds give a soft inviting and homey feel while a metal frame is modern and minimalist
  • Platform vs standard bed – As mentioned above it is important to decide if you need a platform or standard bed frame. If you choose a standard bed you will need to purchase a box spring or bed slats for proper support.
