Best Minimalist King Bed Frame Reviews
Zinus Compack 9-Leg Support Bed Frame
This bed frame is made to support a box spring and mattress. It has nine legs to ensure that it remains stable and sturdy and keeps the mattress supported in all the right places. It is extremely simple to construct and requires no tools; everything you need to put it together comes in the box. The clever ‘quick lock’ system means that it is assembled in just four steps: it really is very easy! There are also convenient holes to attach a headboard if you need one.
The Zinus Compack frame sits quite low to the ground in order to take a box spring and mattress. This means that there is not a lot of space for storage underneath it so it might not be the best choice for small rooms; if you need to make the most of every inch of space and prefer to store boxes underneath then you might prefer a higher bed. It is also not the most attractive piece of furniture, though this won’t matter once the bed is made up on top of it. And what it lacks in looks it more than makes up for in functionality. The Compack frame might be minimal but the comfort you will get from it is definitely not.

Sleeplace Heavy Duty Steel Slat Support
At 18” (46 cm) tall, this frame leaves plenty of room for storage underneath so it a great option where space is tight. It is quite plain: just six legs along the sides and a sturdy slatted base to support the mattress. A reinforced steel structure and slats can support more weight than usual. Super deluxe mattresses will sit well on this frame; it can hold up to 1200lb.
The main disadvantage of this frame is that the slats are quite widely spaced so older or cheap mattresses might start to sag between them. It is also quite tall: great for storing items underneath but perhaps not suitable for small children.
As a minimalist bed frame, this one is a winner. The very simple high design helps to create the illusion of extra space around it and the lack of a head or footboard means that it has a very smooth and uncluttered look. It also boasts a ‘noise free’ construction. This makes it a great choice for homes or flats where the walls are thin, and even the smallest sound travels through them.
