All About Platform Beds

Falling asleep on a quality mattress is an important aspect of getting a good night’s rest. And just as important is the support for your new mattress.

Platform beds 

Platform beds are simple frames used to support your mattress. A platform bed is a bed type with a large, sturdy base designed to hold mattresses without the need for a box spring or other mattress foundation.

 

Types of Platform Beds: Platform beds come in a variety of make and style. They can be constructed out of metal, wood or plastic even.

  • Storage Platform Bed
  • Storage platform beds are popular because of their functionality. Storage platform beds usually have pull-out drawers under the bed that help you save space. 

     

  • High-Rise Platform Bed
  • High-rise platform beds are a bit higher up off the ground than usual. Because platform beds don’t require box springs, the mattresses usually sit at a lower level on many platform bed styles.

     

  • Low-Rise Platform Bed
  • This type of bed is quite low, around 3-5 inches off the ground.

     

  • Floating Platform Bed
  • Typically a floating platform bed has smaller legs that are placed further underneath the bed, which makes it seem like the bed is floating.
