An all polymeric bed frame including opposing laterally spaced apart, elongated side rails, each of the side rails having first and second ends and comprised of a substantially vertical wall and a horizontal support ledge extending laterally from a lower edge of the substantially vertical wall. The bed frame further includes an end cap positioned at least one of the side rail first or second ends, with end caps adapted for connection to a conventional bed headboard. The end cap is positioned substantially perpendicular to the longitudinal dimension of the side rails. The bed frame further includes at least two spaced apart slats attached to the horizontal support members between said side rail first and second ends. The said side rails and the said two slats are comprised of a polymeric material selected from the group consisting of polyethylene, polyethylene copolymers, polypropylene, and acrylonitrile butadiene styrene.
