Why We Love Modern Beds
What is a bedroom without a bed? As the centerpiece and often times the focal point of the room, a bed is part of your space's overall decor and lends itself to how you will layout the rest of the room. But the bed also exists in a functional manner to aid in slumber, comfort and to help round out your personal sanctuary. Modern beds especially offer unmatched comfort and style you can't help but appreciate in the bedroom.
Where Modern Bed Frames Work Best
In the bedroom of course! But knowing your bedroom's layout is key to helping you select the right bed and any furniture you choose to introduce into this personal space. Standard bed frames work well in just about any bedroom and are offered in the sizes you would expect to find including king size frames, queen size frames, twin size frames and full size frames. Storage beds are a go-to choice if keeping clothes organized is a priority for you. And if you like to sit up far away from the floor, you'll appreciate the selection of platform beds. Finally, for guest bedrooms, living rooms or large entryways where you might prefer something more than a sofa, look to the assortment of daybeds available.
A Bed for Every Style
From stainless steel bed frames meant for contemporary homes to luxurious polished wood frames and options inspired by mid-century design, your options for a new bed are limitless. In casual contemporary and transitional rooms, look to the beds from Blu Dot for a frame that has no problem fitting in. Blu Dot offers almost anything you could need in a bed frame, from platform frames like the Modu-licious Bed to the popular and plush Dodu Bed. Introduce fine Italian craftsmanship into your home with a bed from Calligaris and look to IonDesign for clean-lined designs meant for modern bedrooms. Mid-century and retro-inspired bedrooms are best suited with a bed frame from Gus Modern. Gus pays exceptional attention to the details in any of its furniture collection and honors the creative design of the 1950s in a fashionable and functional way we love. Lastly, check out the bed frames from Copeland Furniture for wood designs handcrafted from environmentally-friendly lumber sourced in Vermont.
Choosing the Best Bed
How do you choose the best bed for your home? Aside from a style that is in accordance with your interior design, size should be your next closest priority when choosing a new bed frame. You'll need to pay close attention to important sizing dimensions like height (especially for platform and storage beds), width, length and depth to appropriately choose the best frame for your bedroom. Before you begin your search, pull out the measuring tape and thoroughly determine how big of a bed (or how small) will work in your room's layout. With a size in mind, you'll find it easy to refine all of your options and then choose the frame that will accommodate your room. Remember to consider important design features like materials (i.e., polished wood frames versus upholstered frames), colors and hardware finishes to find a bed that will have no problem blending in.

Other Great Options
The bed is just one essential component of successful bedroom design. You'll also need additional pieces of bedroom furniture - including clothing dressers, credenzas, bedside tables, lounge chairs and decorative benches. To really round out aesthetic of the space and keep it well-lit, look to the assortment of bedroom lighting. While portable lamps for the table and floor are always appreciated, your bedroom may benefit from elegant recessed lighting, flushmounts, wall sconces or a ceiling fan with lights. Finally, if a bed frame is too large for any area of your home, you may like the selection of modern sleeper sofas.
