Headboard and a Basic Frame
This two-part option starts with a no-frills metal bed frame that’s coupled with a separate headboard. It doesn’t have rails of any kind on the sides or foot of the bed.
Popular as a flexible and economical option—the parts can be purchased at different times and at any price point—this bed style is easy to change up at any time.
There are three installation options for the standalone headboard: wall mounted, bed-frame mounted, and freestanding.
