The bed is the most important piece of furniture in any bedroom, not only because it provides the space to sleep, but because it helps define the style of the entire space. Beds and bedframes come in a huge variety of shapes and sizes, so take a look at the most popular kinds listed below to help you select the right one for your space:
Platform beds consist of a simple and streamlined platform base that sits under the bed. Generally platform beds don’t have a headboard (or just have a very low one) and do not have any under bed space, instead featuring a solid panel from the floor to the box spring or mattress.
A captains bed is similar to a platform bed, but rather than sitting on a solid base or a simple frame, they make use of the under-bed space for drawer storage.

A sleigh bed features a headboard and footboard that gracefully curve away from the mattress, creating a dramatic look that is reminiscent of a sleigh.
Canopy beds have tall posts that hold up a frame over the bed. These come in a couple different styles, and can be feature just the frame above, a fabric cover or curtains that surround the bed.
A loft bed is a space-saving addition that lifts the bed up high enough that the space underneath it is usable. Some loft beds feature built in amenities such as drawers, shelves, or a desk, while others simply leave the space underneath as a blank canvass for you to do with what you wish.
