Best Beds on Amazon for Designer Style on a Budget

A round up of the best Amazon beds and headboards for high end interior designer style for a fraction of the price.

Don’t sleep on Amazon’s beds when it comes to bedroom furniture shopping. Wait a sec… that expression doesn’t work here. 😆 Beds don’t have to be expensive to be beautiful, and Amazon has proven that!

I whipped up this ultimate Amazon beds guide if you find yourself needing to furnish a bedroom on a super tight budget without sacrificing style.

We have used many beds from Amazon over the years for bedroom makeovers both in our home and in friends’ homes. Each section in this guide is sorted by bed category: storage beds, bed frames, and headboards.

Storage Beds

We recently bought this upholstered wingback bed with hidden storage for our small primary bedroom. It’s the perfect solution to provide much-needed space for luggage, extra bedding, and bins with off-season clothing.

The best part is it looks so much like the storage beds from Pottery Barn, West Elm, and Castlery for a quarter of the price!

This bed in our primary bedroom has a hydraulic lift so the entire under-bed space is accessible. I much prefer this storage setup instead of drawers. But when you have a small bedroom with limited dresser and closet space, anything helps.

Modern Wingback Bed with Hydraulic Lift Storage

You would never guess by looking at this bed that is has a lift storage feature. This was easy to put together in about an hour. It’s a great solution for moving a large bed up a winding or turning staircase as it arrives in a ready-to-assemble box.

Wooden Vintage Style Bed

Several vintage style beds we have used in our room makeovers came frame Amazon for way less than they look! So many of these look similar to beds from Frontgate, Pottery Barn, and Arhaus.

The best part is most of these beds have built-in platforms with slats, so you can save a bit on your mattress budget without needing to purchase a box spring.

Vintage Style Solid Wood Poster Bed

True vintage beds are often hard to find in a queen size or king size. This well made wood bed is easy to assemble (we put it together in 30 minutes). The wood grain adds so much character. And since it comes with built-in slats, no box spring is required. Our 5 year-old daughter has climbed all over it for a year, and it has proven to be very sturdy.

Metal Vintage Style Bed

These black metal spindle beds we used in this teen girl bedroom makeover were a steal at under $70 per twin! It’s available in all other sizes as well.

It’s perfect for placing in front of a window to let more light into the room. Slats are already included so no box spring is needed.

The bed sits high enough above the floor to allow plenty of space for under bed drawers or storage bins. We used these storage drawers underneath these beds. They’re the perfect bed for kids’ rooms for this reason.

Black Metal Platform Bed

This bed is as classic and minimalist as it gets. No box spring is required. The bed sits high enough from the floor with a 12.7″ clearance to allow for plenty of storage space or room for cleaning underneath.


We found this scalloped velvet upholstered headboard to use in our older daughter’s room. It definitely gives off Serena and Lily vibes for way less!

You can pair it with this sturdy wood bed base that has ample room underneath for these rolling storage drawers or a trundle bed.

Scalloped Performance Velvet Headboard

The best part about this headboard is it’s covered in stain-resistant performance velvet, so it’s easy to clean. Headboard height is adjustable to fit all sorts of bed frame sizes. Its soft padding makes it easy to lean against and relax while sitting up in bed.

  1. Love your posts Lauren. Where did you purchase your storage bed in ivory? The link only provides options for gray and dark gray.

  2. Hi Lauren, the scalloped headboard…is it a stark white? On Amazon it looks as though it is and I am loving it but need more of a cream or off white and it doesn’t look like they offer. Always love your posts. They are so helpful and fun and projects don’t feel beyond the reader’s reach and possibility of doing. Blessings to you, Teresa

    1. Thank you, Teresa! That means a lot to me! The headboard has a very slight creaminess to it when I compare it to stark white sheets. But only just barely. I’d consider it more white than ivory.
