Low Profile King Bed Frames

Buy the best low profile king bed frames selected and recommended by interior designers. By Eliza Bush.

Say goodbye (or goodnight) to the most common designs: a low profile king bed frame will revolutionize your room’s visual flow and introduce some minimalist charm. You can either focus on the headboard since a wider portion will show or go in the opposite direction by choosing a frame without it, bringing the minimalist element to the next level. Either way, here are our expert ideas to match your decor style with your new low profile frame.

Ultra Modern King Low Profile Bed Frame

Wade Logan®

Description

Perfect For: Teenager bedrooms, gaming bedrooms, and masculine bedrooms

What We Like: Remote-controlled LED light

What We Don’t Like: Lower weight capacity

Not So Good For: Traditional settings

This forward-looking bed begins with an engineered wood and iron foundation, capable of holding up to 450 lbs. The frame is then lined with a layer of polyester fiberfill and wrapped in leatherette (offered in black, white, or light gray). To top it off, the headboard lights up in 16 different colors, perfect for creating fun mood lighting at night. The two sleek drawers under the bed make it a gem.

Designer Advice

Although the neutral colors of this bed frame make it easy to decorate with a variety of colors, we think that it would look exceptionally stunning in a dark-themed bedroom. Perhaps you can paint an accent wall in a cool tone like midnight blue or dark gray, or swap your bedding for something darker.

What Users Say

I love this bed frame! The light is awesome and the storage under gives us more bedroom space.

Description

Perfect For: Modern, industrial, and loft-style bedrooms

What We Like: Two-tone appearance

Not So Good For: People with knee and lower back problems

Available in gray wash or chestnut brown, this low-profile king bed channels a modern-meets-industrial aesthetic that is both stylish and timeless. The frame, being solidly built of steel, is kept rather minimal, while the bamboo footboard adds a warm note to the overall design. Sitting fairly low to the ground, it has a height of only 6 inches with a weight capacity of 700 lbs. 

Designer Advice

If you’re looking for a platform bed that is equal parts durable, fashionable, and stable, this award-winning furniture piece won’t disappoint. Another perk is that it includes all the tools and instructions needed for a quick, hassle-free setup. Just note that because the frame is of metal, we recommend using felt pads to protect your floors from scratches. 

What Users Say

Great low and stable bed. Easy to put together, took me 5-10 minutes. Highly recommended!

Greyleigh™

Description

Perfect For: Classic and contemporary interior styles

What We Like: Feminine design

What We Don’t Like: Lightweight

Classy and charming, this king-size bed surely makes a grand centerpiece in the bedroom. It is made from a blend of solid and manufactured wood and then padded with foam for upgraded comfort. Adding to that, a soft-to-touch linen fabric in warm gray, light gray, or blue envelopes the entire piece. The highlight of this bed, though, is the wingback headboard, which has been beautifully embellished with button tufting and nailhead trim. 

Designer Advice

This beauty proves that not all low-profile beds have to look modern and minimalist. Conversely, it has more of a traditional feel to it that fits right in with classic furnishings, such as a crystal chandelier, long drapes, and a French end-of-bed bench. On another note, it gives luxury hotel vibes when paired with contemporary decors, like a geometric rug or bedside pendant lights. 

What Users Say

Beautiful and well made. Adds a touch of elegance to our bedroom!
