If you are looking for a minimalist bed frame that is beautiful yet simple, then you have come to the right place. We have curated a list of our 10 favorite minimalist bed frames on the market. These beds combine quality manufacturing that will hold up for years with the most simple and minimal designs. This list includes entry level bed frames that are $100-$200 as well as high end handmade beds that cost $1K-$2K. 

What is a minimalist bed frame?

A minimalist bed frame’s goal is to provide the most function by using the least amount of space and materials. A minimalist bed frame will not have an oversized headboard or footboard and will not take up excessive space. The majority of the bed frames in this list have clean lines and sit lower to the ground to have as little space taken up as possible while still looking visually pleasing. 

Is a standard bed frame or a platform bed better for a minimalist look?

All of the bed frames in this post are platform beds. Platform beds have a built in support system that utilizes bed slats. This means that you do not have to use a box spring, which allows your bed sit lower to the ground and gives it a more minimal look. We recommend a platform bed for all minimalist bed frames over a standard bed frame. A platform bed is also a cheaper route to go than a standard frame and box spring.
