Embarrassingly enough, we lived in our last apartment for three years and didn’t change anything about the bedroom from the day we moved in, including the hand-me-down, particleboard, platform bed that we swiped from my parents before the move.

I made Jon promise me that we would get a real bed for our new apartment, and it became quickly apparent that the options out there are overwhelming. After living with no headboard for three years, I knew I wanted a plush, soft headboard that would feel comfortable to sit up in and read or watch TV, so I narrowed my search to upholstered beds. Hours of my life and approximately 4 million beds later, I finally decided on a style and budget appropriate option.

In an effort to be a friend (and hopefully give you back time that you probably don’t have to spend searching in the first place), I thought a round-up of my favorite options in a range of budgets would be helpful (so you wouldn’t have to go through the struggle I did)!

  1. I have recently been searching for a bed too! I completely agree about how overwhelming it is – especially trying to find something that’s not super expensive. I’m so happy that you’ve posted this, very helpful!

    1. Glad I could help! 🙂 It’s so hard to pick something (especially when you’re a designer and love all the options… you know what I’m talking about)!
