Shipping: Free 2-day delivery with Amazon Prime, otherwise delivers within 5 days.
Promising review: "First and foremost, the shipping was fast and the bed was extremely professionally packaged. Zinus enclosed multiple thank you cards and extra pieces. The instructions are simple and precise. It also includes the only tools required for assembly. It is heavy duty and very easy to put together. It took of us roughly 45 minutes to piece this together from start to finish. I have slept on this bed for two nights now and it is the most comfortable and sturdy bed frame I believe I have ever owned. I will recommend this brand to everyone from now on and I will definitely be a returning customer!" —G

2. A bestselling wooden platform bed so durable and wallet-friendly that it'll feel straight out of a dream (which you'll repeat each night as you lay down on it).
Shipping: Free 2-day delivery.
Promising review: "Been searching extensively for a platform bed and decided on this one for the description, as it’s solid wood and the middle part of frame is metal. Every review was positive too! This bed frame holds up to 1,000 pounds so I know it’s sturdy. Bought this platform bed for guest bedroom in a queen size, love it! Decided to purchase another to replace my box spring and give my bedroom a cleaner more modern look. The color is natural and works perfectly for the rooms. Slept on it last night and no movement at all. Highly recommend!!!" —Sonia

Shipping: Delivers within 8–13 days for $29.99 shipping.
Promising review: "I'm picky. And frugal. I looked at every single bed frame on every single platform and finally settled on this one. I was worried that at this price point, it wouldn't be very good quality — I was wrong. The quality for the price is excellent. The assembly instructions were clear. Everything was packaged well, so that everything was in place upon arrival, even though the box was banged up (I was worried.) Best of all, this bed doesn't squeak. I bought this frame to replace The World's Squeakiest Bed Frame — seriously, if I even *thought* about rolling over, the bed would EEE-ERRR! Don't even talk about grown-up fun time. Such a mood killer. It was ridiculous! This bed, though, makes NO SOUND. I'm 135 pounds and my partner is 200 pounds and we TRIED to get it squeaking, and nothing. It's sturdy AND cute. I like it even more than I dreamed. I'm so so happy with this purchase!!!" —JVR
Get it from Amazon for $149.99+ (available in Full and Queen, and colors).
4. A rounded headboard platform bed emanating relaxing vibes even as I look at it... I can imagine lying down on this thing for a nap and nonchalantly waking up eight hours later like nothing even happened.
Shipping: Delivers within 6 days.
Promising review: "This is a fantastic bed! I love the color of the headboard — it goes with any furniture pieces or decor. The frame is sturdy but very classy looking with the metal as well. I also really like the rolled wood slats that make it easy to assemble. This bed is the ideal mix of industrial and modern, providing that high end look I was hoping to achieve while on a budget. The soft clean lines were exactly what I wanted. Will definitely be recommending this bed to friends and family!" —sher33

Promising review: "I am extremely happy with my purchase. The wood is beautiful, and the bed looks great. Setup took about an hour and a half for one person with not a ton of upper body strength (lol), but I didn’t have any issues!! Looks great and does what I need it to do." —Kat

6. A metal platform bed that's not only sturdy and affordable, but you can probably hoard years' worth of junk — I mean, treasures, in the 12 inches of storage space underneath.
Shipping: Free delivery within 9 days.
Promising review: "I was searching for a full bed for days. I didn’t want to spend a fortune, but wanted something solid that my two toddlers wouldn’t destroy after they jumped on it. I ended up buying this one, because the reviews were good and the price was where I needed to be. The bed is awesome. The best thing about this bed is that the mattress is recessed inside of the frame just a little bit. That ensures that the mattress will not slide around. Other brands have the mattress on top, and some even use sticky tape to hold the mattress still. No thanks! This bed has plenty of slats, so your mattress will not sag in between the bars. We are extremely happy with our purchase." —Curtis Freley
Get it from Amazon for $81.47+ (available in Twin, Full, and Queen, and two colors).

7. An upholstered storage platform frame equipped with four storage drawers, an adjustable-height headboard, and zero need to purchase a bulky box spring. Win-win-win!
Shipping: Delivers within 6–9 days, with $79.99 shipping.
Promising review: "It took us longer than anticipated to put together, we spent a day working on it. Definitely plan on it taking some time to assemble. But it’s really sturdy and it looks as good as it does in the pictures. The drawers slide in and out so easily and it adds a lot of storage space to our bedroom. There are two options when assembling it for the height of the headboard. We opted for the higher option. We really liked the option for different heights. I was really surprised at how sturdy it is. My fiancé and I are both big people and it holds both of us and our two dogs with no problem. We love this frame." —Giesela Pierce
Get it from Amazon for $195.98+ (available in Full, Queen, and King, two stitching styles, and three colors).

Shipping: Free 3-day shipping with Amazon Prime. Otherwise, arrives within five days.
Promising review: "I cannot express how happy I am with this purchase. I recently moved and bought several new furniture pieces with self-assembly required. This bed frame was by far the easiest to put together out of all of the many different pieces I purchased from various other companies. Every item was clearly marked and the instructions were straight forward and easy to follow. I had spent my day moving boxes and went to assemble this frame already completely exhausted and ready to be defeated and humiliated by another piece of do-it-yourself furniture, only to be pleasantly surprised and pleased to find this so easy to put together, entirely alone! The tools that are included were particularly helpful and made an already smooth assembly even more efficient. I couldn’t be happier with the whole process and the final product. It’s so sturdy and the storage space below is awesome! Definitely would recommend!" —Amazon Customer

Promising review: "This bed is the perfect size. It is not bulky and looks like it is floating above the floor. I bought for my 17-year-old daughter and she absolutely loves it.

Get it from Wayfair for $429.99+ (originally $629.99; available in Full and Queen).
10. A platform bed frame designed to look futuristic as heck... and while this isn't exactly a floating bed from a sci-fi movie, not having to pile a box spring on top feels like a darn good compromise to me.

Promising review: "Not only was this bed made a lot nicer than I imagined, but the company who made it packaged it all up so nicely and double-padded so nothing got damaged! The bed looks even better in person and is super sturdy and comfortable! It was pretty tricky to put together, but it did come with really easy instructions to follow and even little tools. If you're looking for a nicely made, modern/chic-looking bed that is kid- and pet-safe, this is it!" —Samantha Church

Shipping: Ships in 3–5 business days.
Promising review: "I have been eyeing this bed frame for over a year now and finally pulled the trigger...this frame was much nicer in person then I expected. It looks like a showpiece. It went together in minutes! One of the first things I did was walk around the frame just like I saw in the pictures and boy this thing is rock solid. There are no squeaks and noises with the frame and my mattress almost feels more comfortable on it. Not sure if that's a mental thing or it's just better. Anyways if you are still trying to decide if you want this frame let me make it simple for you. BUY IT!!!" —Verified Buyer

Shipping: Free 3-day delivery.
Promising review: "Best bed ever! The metal frame is great quality and engineered for easy install but commercial quality. No squeaky bed frame here. I put it all together by myself. The frame slots together and you can hand screw each screw before tightening. Really a breeze and I just cannot get over this quality." —Fletcher

13. A bestselling metal platform bed fulfilling all your minimalist dreams and transforming your bedroom into something out of your most-ruefully-scrolled-through Pinterest moodboard.
Shipping: Free 2-day shipping.
Promising review: "Loving this bed frame so far! Purchased it as an upgrade for our king size Nectar mattress. It took my husband and I maybe an hour to put together. I like to store things under the bed so we set it at the highest level possible, tall enough for my Yorkie mix pup to easily walk under. It has been a quiet frame for us so far. Not quite sure how well it will hold up if and when we move but for the price we can just buy another. Very happy with this beautiful bed thus far!" —Allyssa
Get it from Wayfair for $180.86+ (originally $229+; available in Twin, Full/Double, Queen, and King, and four colors).

Let's just run down through all the amazing attributes: (1) Amazing build quality, (2) Super easy to set up, (3) Fantastic design and looks great in my room. You really can't get much better than this. Seriously. Aside from the bed itself, I can't speak any higher about Floyd's customer service team. They were always super quick to respond to my questions. On top of that, they were extremely friendly and kind. It definitely helped make the buying decision that much easier for me. I would 100% recommend this to anyone potentially looking to purchase this bed. It's truly awesome." —Ryan L.

Shipping: Delivers in 10–17 days.
Promising review: "First of all this bed frame is gorgeous. The velvet is super soft but you know it’s durable. It’s also the perfect solution for us storage-challenged studio apartment dwellers. Literally so excited to put things in a proper storage solution that isn’t bulky and in the way! Assembly was pretty straightforward and easy. It took me and my mom about 90 minutes to put together in total. Amazon deliverers were great and super helpful! Overall a great buy. Thank you Mr. Kate for designing a bed frame with a storage solution that isn’t super bulky!!!" —Carrie Wilson

Shipping: Delivers within 6–9 days.
Promising review: "First of all, I needed a platform bed to store my clothing underneath it. I looked at many wooden ones, then came across this metal bed. I am so happy I took a second look! The openness of it looks great in my small bedroom. All my things fit nicely underneath — I put it together on the higher setting to accommodate larger bins. It's been perfect for me." —Lynn

Shipping: Delivers within 2-3 days.
Promising review: "Color is exactly as expected, really adds a pop to the bedroom. Awesome quality and looks way more expensive than it was, especially compared to the $1000 C&B bed we looked at! Relatively easy to put together. King mattress fits perfectly on top and we've lost that 'middle hump' in the mattress that comes from it being on top of two single box springs. I think I'll buy another for our guest bedroom, that's how much I love this." —Jeff
Get it from Wayfair for $272.39+ (originally $318.86; available in Full, Queen, King, and five colors).
