Mates, I hate to break it to you, but if you’re still sleeping on some kind of crate set up you spied on a Pinterest board back in 2015, it’s time to grow up. Investing in a real bed frame (and a good quality mattress) that’ll support your back and body is the easiest way not to be reminded of your age every morning.
A good bed frame should tick a few boxes to ensure your hard-earned cash money is well spent. It needs to be durable and supportive (and squeak-free, for obvious reasons).
It also needs to be functional in your space, e.g. the right size and fit. And, if you’re a renter, we highly recommend one with storage options or space underneath that can double as storage space if needed.
With all that in mind, we’ve gone ahead and rounded up some of the best bed frames you can buy online in Australia and have delivered to your door.
The Best Bed Frames You Can Buy in Australia
If you’re looking for a traditional
one-way ticket to bone-town bed, Emma Sleep’s new timber bed frame is crafted from eco-responsible, FSC-certified pine wood. Design-wise, it’s simple but spiffy and can be completely assembled tool-free. Plus, you can also opt for additional draws that slide under the bed for storage space if you’re so inclined.
Where to buy: Emma (from $1,999.40, currently on sale from $1,199.40)
No tool kit? No worries, The Eva Timber Bed Frame is easily assembled without so much as a screwdriver and can be built in a headache-free 5-mins, apparently. We like to think of this bed frame as the one your graduate to from crates if you’re still after that minimalist aesthetic in your 20s. It also comes with a little spot for all your devices and cables to ensure your cords stay tangle-free and out of sight. It comes in all sizes — single, king single, double, queen and king — and starts around the $900 mark.

If a timber bed frame doesn’t suit your style, why not check out Emma Sleep’s Box Bed? According to the brand, “The Emma Bed Frame comes with patented technology for ultimate support, FlexiSlats for tailored pressure relief, and a special AirFlow bed base for maximum breathability.” Sounds good, huh?! Plus the good folks at Emma offer a 100-night trial – plenty of time for you to test it out (if ya catching our drift).

if you’re looking for something a little more ~durable~, why not give the Ecosa Rise Bedframe a whirl? Made from American ash timber and sourced from certified sustainable forests, the Rise bedframe promises squeak-free comfort and support. It’s also super easy to assemble, and comes with shock-resistant wooden slats.

Of course, it wouldn’t be a bed roundup without mentioning our mates over at Koala. Made from natural timber with a honeycomb core, the Koala bed base is apparently strong enough to hold 10 people jumping on it (or two people aggressively going at it, we reckon), has storage options behind the bedhead, and comes with a handy cable organiser. You can choose from five different sizes — single, king single, double, queen and king. The Koala bed bases start at $799 and cap out at $1,099.
