Are you a die hard romantic, swathing your bedroom in flowing fabrics? Or do you prefer simple, clean lines in a contemporary setting? Whatever your bedroom style, there’s a bed to suit. Here, we delve into four bedroom approaches, with bed pairings to match.
Rustic rooms are warm, welcoming, and earthy, perfect for renewing rest. For a fitting bed frame, look for substantial pieces that hold their own, designed to ground a sleeping space. Seek a Sleigh Bed, a style with outward curving head and foot boards. Most often made of dense wood, this style is properly weighted, while elegant curves keep the frame from feeling heavy. For a rustic room, forgo the sleek, high shine, and seek a frame with a weathered or rubbed wood finish.

The Calistoga Sleigh Bed by Magnussen® fits the bill. Inspired by the ambiance of Napa Valley inns, the distressed charcoal finish is a modern take on rustic charm. For a lighter finish, check out the Whiskey Barrel Sleigh Bed by Vaughan-Bassett. Perk: this style has an optional platform storage, for stashing your secrets and socks.
Romantic rooms are elaborate, sumptuous, and inviting, offering a plush place to recharge. Seek a detailed, decorative bed frame to heighten the sense of drama. For old world glamour, choose an upholstered headboard. This luxe approach is the cousin to lush carpeting, and encourages nights of rejuvenating rest. Sink into the supple support, and let your day melt away.

Check out the aptly named Sanctuary Upholstered Bed by Hooker®. With a high, deeply tufted headboard, this is romance in high gear. For a lower profile, try Century®’s Atlanta Low Post Bed. This refined take is offset by intricate basket weave carving along the base.
Classic rooms are elegant, established, and always in style. Choose a traditional bed to do justice to an heirloom-worthy space. Four Poster Bed frames are perfect options, with varying post heights. Don’t want a soaring canopy? Opt for Shaker style simplicity, with wooden slats at head and foot.

The Ellen DeGeneres Marmont Poster Bed by Thomasville® is the perfect pairing of timeless tradition, today. The streamlined style is a modern take on a classic frame. Better yet, this frame gives you all the options : select high posts for a canopy, or removable fabric wraps for a soft touch.
Contemporary bedrooms are simple, sleek, and streamlined. Keep your bed style minimal to maintain clean lines and open space. Platform beds are popular options, with pared back headboards and low profiles. Forget the fuss of a box spring- platform beds are low slung, making ceilings seem higher and rooms feel larger than life.
