Ready to turn your bedroom into an inviting oasis? Making your bedroom comfortable and inviting is an important part of getting good sleep. 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. You will want to make sure you have good support with a quality platform bed or bed frames.
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 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 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.
This type of bed is quite low, around 3-5 inches off the ground.
Typically a floating platform bed has smaller legs that are placed further underneath the bed, which makes it seem like the bed is floating.
Buying a Platform Bed
Once you’ve decided to get a platform bed, you can easily find them in stores or online. Most platform beds are affordable. If you purchase your platform bed online, you can expect to spend around 1 to 2 hours assembling it when it’s delivered.
Budget-wise, a platform bed can start from $100 to $400 for more affordable built, and range between $500 and even more than $1000 for luxury models.
If you are planning to get a mattress for your platform bed online, it’s a good idea to check with the mattress manufacturer if they also sell platform beds. That way, you’ll be able to get a bed that is specifically designed for your mattress. There are usually discounts too for buying a mattress and bed frame or foundation as a set.
