Modern Tufted King Size Beds for Under $500

Modern Tufted King Size Beds for Under $500

Given the current predicament of our crazy economy, finding quick ship furniture on a budget can seem like a hell of a task. Lucky for you, I have done all of the tedious work already . In today’s post, I am sharing a round-up of modern king size beds that are actually in stock and under $500…

Around the holidays as I was prepping for my scheduled, elective breast surgery, I engrossed myself with a bit of a mission- converting my old master bedroom from a queen bed configuration to a king-size arrangement…

Not only did I want a cozy nest to recover from my procedure in, but the previous queen bed- although beautifully tufted in cream linen- housed a mattress that was over 10 freaking years old.

While the holiday shopping season may not have been the most ideal time to drop money on a brand new bed, I convinced myself that this was not simply a matter of aesthetics, but a matter of health .

Simply put, the old mattress had become so uncomfortable that I was literally losing sleep .

Given we already decided our 1980’s rancher would be on the market in the near future, I decided to browse the web for something that was: 1). quick ship 2). under $500 3). preferably channel tufted for a modern aesthetic, ANNNND 4). had enough clearance under the bed for storage.

After sifting through pieces that were either out of stock, back ordered for months or just too damn pricey, I finally found what I was looking for with this grey, channel tufted kind bed. (click here for the exact same bed pictured in these photos)

Unlike our old linen headboard which was very unforgiving of makeup stains and spray tan residue, I opted for a darker colored fabric this time around.

For a minimal, zen-like feel, I only dressed the bed with a basic white down comforter (click here for the same comforter), 3 white euro shams (click here for the shams) and one simple lumbar pillow (click here for the lumbar pillow).

I was then able to buy matching under- bed storage drawers for additional clothing space. (click here for the same under-bed drawers)

To my delight, this bed also looks fabulous in our new home (which I plan on photographing soon!).
