Platform Beds & Platform Storage Beds
With popular designs featuring sleek mid-century silhouettes, platform beds and platform beds with storage are an effortless way to add chic style to any space.
What Is a Platform Bed
Usually crafted from wood, a platform bed features a flat and sturdy built-in base designed to eliminate the need for a box spring or other type of foundation.
How to Choose the Best Platform Bed for Your Space
When choosing a platform bed, consider size and style. First, measure your space to make sure the designs you love will fit in – and then start narrowing down your search by material type and style. For traditional elegance, opt for an upholstery with deep button tufting – or, for more of a casual charm, stick with simple wood veneer paneling. Here are just a few reasons why platform beds continue to remain one of the most popular designs:
- Platform beds are cost-efficient, since they don’t require additional foundation purchases.
- Compared to traditional beds, platform beds commonly feature more slats at their bases, with fewer spaces in between, resulting in more support for your mattress.
- Because of their simple, streamlined silhouettes, platform beds go with any style – and are easy to fit into any bedroom space.
- Most platform bed designs feature solid hardwood construction in stunning colors, making them statement pieces in their own right.
- By design, platform beds are durable enough to fully support a mattress without the need for a box spring; as a result of their strength, they tend to last longer than other bed types.
- Many platform beds also feature built-in headboards and built-in drawers or shelves for space-saving under-bed storage – and an effortless way to keep organized!
