    Remodeling a bedroom is a process. Think about it: you have to make all kinds of decisions, including the perfect paint color, a mattress that will support your sleeping style and even furniture that will complement other rooms in your home. At the heart of any bedroom is a comfortable, stylish bed. That’s why Sleep Authorities has decided to compile a list of the best minimalist bed frames on the market. The great thing about a minimalist bed frame is that you can expect it to match furniture that you already own.

    The minimalist movement originates from Japan, where the desire for minimalism in all things stems from the prevalence of Zen Buddhism. Many of the beds included on our list are heavily influenced by Japanese furniture design – clean lines, traditional craftsmanship and refined joinery.

    To find the perfect bed frame for your room, check out our top picks below.

    The Top 3 Minimalist Bed Frames in 2020 are:

    1. The Floyd Bed

    2. Urban Outfitters Wyatt Bed Frame

    3. Keetsa Steel Frame

    Floyd’s bed frame comes highly customizable: you get to create your own panel supports. The frame, at a budget-friendly price, comes with metal pieces to position the wooden slats. Creative types will enjoy sourcing their own wood, as the website suggests. Floyd recommends the wood slat supports to be around 1.5 inches thick for durable support.

    Some customers, however, may not prefer Floyd’s bed frame in fear that they will have to go the extra mile to provide and create their own slat or panel support system. After all, coming up with the right size wood panel can be a huge feat for people who have no experience with woodworking or home decorating.
