A platform bed is a contemporary classic and becoming more poplar in the design world. Many arts and craft enthusists have used platform bed designs since the 1970's. They have traditionally been used in Asia and Europe for their simplicity. Using a platform bed gives a sleeker, uncluttered look to any bedroom. There are so many different styles today to coordinate with more traditional bedroom pieces. The three main types are low profile, ones with a canopy, or the storage type.They are available in unlimited finishes and styles to choose from. Depending on your tastes light or darker wood finishes can be used. You are bound to find a bed you will love!
I bet you are wondering if all mattresses will work on a platform bed? The answer is YES! Although, many customers feel that memory foam or gel foams work best because they require a firm solid base to sit on. Not having a boxspring does not effect the way the mattress will feel or perform, in fact, some people have claimed that a platform bed is way more comfortable than a traditional bed.
Platform beds work well in many different types of spaces. In a master bedroom they create simpicity and style with minimum fuss. No need to use fancy spreads and large fancy pillows. Simple does it! Another benefit of a platform bed is the use of storage. You can purchase rolling drawers to fit under the bed. Perfect for those who need extra space to store their clothes or sheets in a small room like a child's room or for the apartment dweller! The bed with drawers insures your room always looks neat.
