A bed is possibly the most important furniture purchase you'll make for your home. After all, you'll spend one-third of your life in it. So while we may recommend you cut corners on other décor accessories or smaller furniture, like accent tables or even nightstands, a sturdy, good-quality bed is well worth the investment. But here's the thing: If you want to love your bed for a long time, it's not the time to go all out on a trend or an overly ornate piece. Instead, we recommend minimalist beds that will stand the test of time.
Minimalist doesn't have to mean boring. There is a multitude of ways in which you can add visual interest to a minimalist piece, including color, texture, and pattern. But a great minimalist bed will always put function above form. Are you the type to sit in bed for hours reading? Do you like to be close to the ground? Whatever your sleeping preference is, we have the right bed for you. Here are our favorite minimalist beds on the market right now.
