Low Profile Bed Frame Made From Solid Wood

Low-profile bed frames are more popular than ever, thanks to their modernly minimalist look that won’t overwhelm smaller spaces. Furthermore, many shorter-than-average people, children, and pets will find that the reduced height can make it easier to climb into bed. Better still, low profile beds can offer some of the same benefits commonly associated with their taller counterparts, such as built-in storage and attention-grabbing headboards. 

Countryside Amish Furniture offers many low profile beds made from solid wood, available in many in-demand styles including Amish-made platform beds, sleigh bed frames, and solid wood panel beds. All our beds are meticulously handcrafted by authentic Amish furniture makers, offering you the flexibility to customize the frame in various ways. Furthermore, your order will be crafted using only the finest North American timber and joinery techniques, ensuring that your low-profile bed will withstand decades of use.

Proving that a low profile bed frame can have a tall, statement headboard is the Sarasota Storage Bed. The headboard sports decorative carvings and a broadened top lip, all the while maintaining the simplicity of a modern frame. Two discrete drawers are tucked into the base, enhanced by the handles of your choosing. This storage bed is available in sizes Full through California King.

Is a Low-Profile Bed Frame Right For You?

A low-profile bed frame offers numerous advantages for modern bedrooms. By sitting closer to the ground, it contributes to the overall visual airiness of the space, especially if the room has lower ceilings. 

Additionally, shorter individuals may find low-profile beds easier to get in and out of, making them especially appropriately sized for children. However, it’s worth acknowledging that taller people may find higher profile beds easier to access. Ideally, you should be able to sit comfortably on the bed with your feet able to touch the ground without feeling "scrunched." When shopping, keep in mind that the addition of a mattress will add extra height.
