Best Budget: Zinus Paul Metal & Wood Platform Bed Frame
Zinus’ Paul Bed is proof that a rustic or industrial-style bed doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. The headboard is made with real pine wood planks, which is especially impressive at this price range, and you can’t go wrong with the sturdiness of the steel frame.
It also includes support slats, so you don’t need a box spring underneath your mattress. That said, it’s important to note that its weight capacity is on the lower end, especially if you’re sharing this bed with a partner (and possibly a dog); sleepers on a full-size bed shouldn’t exceed 250 pounds, and queen and king size beds hold up to 500 pounds (excluding the mattress).
