Use this guide to find a wooden bed for your master bedroom, guest bedroom and even your teenager's bedroom. We've got a range of sizes and looks that'll fit beautifully with your existing decor.

Choose Your Look

Every bedroom is different and what works in one space may be plain bad design in another. Use your personal taste and find dozens of different styles at Pottery Barn to match your favorite furnishings, rugs and accessories. Here are a few styles to get you started:

  • Traditional styles. Classic shapes, combination headboard and footboard designs and clean wood finishes are a must in traditional homes. Look for large Eastern or standard king and California king bed frames for big master suites. Shop for queen and full-size beds for guest rooms and spaces where you need to reserve some room for dressers, occasional chairs and other essential pieces.
  • Farmhouse and country French looks. Utilizing lighter woods like oak that often look naturally aged, farmhouse and country French styles give your room the feeling of understated elegance. Canopy beds and upholstered styles can work especially well in these spaces.
  • Mid-century and retro-inspired beds. Going for a vintage look that's a little bit 1950s or 1960s? Find wood beds with short headboards and no footboard for a classic retro feel. Choose light or dark wood based on your existing furniture and accent colors. Opt for more ornate beds with nailhead trim and decorative details for an art deco or regency approach.
  • Modern beds. Step into the modern era with a clean, sleek bed designed to look like something right out of the pages of your favorite design magazine. Wood might be a traditional material, but when you choose a refined shape with minimal styling, you can make any wood tone feel contemporary.

Wooden Bed Styles

Wood has long been a mainstay material for all sorts of furniture. Outfit your bedroom with an assortment of wooden bed frames in a variety of styles from Pottery Barn. Here are a few popular options you can find today:

  • All-wood beds. Go for a natural style with an all-wood bed that fits your room. You can find all-wood beds in light wood, dark wood tones and distressed varieties. Choose soft bedding and materials like linen to play up the natural look of an all-wood bed.
  • Upholstered beds. All-wood bed frames can work with a wide variety of design styles, but some spaces just call out for a softer look. Shop for an upholstered bed with a wooden frame to add texture and color to your room. Look for subdued neutral tones to create a soothing space that's perfect for falling asleep and relaxing after a long day.
  • Canopy beds. Ideal for adding height and drama to your bedroom, canopy beds are an exceptional choice for traditional and transitional rooms. Match the existing wood finishes in your room to create a cohesive look. Add a canopy curtain for privacy, color and texture.
  • Platform beds with storage. Perfect for smaller bedrooms, teenager's spaces and guest rooms, platform beds with under-bed storage give you an extra place to keep items like clean sheets and blankets. You can even use these storage areas for out-of-season clothes like sweaters and bulky jackets to free up much-needed space in your closet.
  • Reclaimed wood beds. Industrial-chic, retro and vintage-inspired spaces can all benefit from reclaimed wood beds. Made from eco-friendly materials, reclaimed wood beds add a rough, rustic look that's still contemporary and modern. Some models also feature metal accents, giving them a more contemporary look that's great in upscale homes and well-designed modern spaces.

Shop Pottery Barn to find a wooden bed that matches your traditional, retro or modern bedroom decor. Pair your new bed with a colorful duvet, decorative throw blanket or tried-and-true quilt to make the space your own.
