Why Buy a Platform Bed


The Bedroom, for many, is considered one of the most important rooms in your house simply because it is the room you spend the most time in. Because of this, we spend much of our time and attention to the furniture that goes into this room. We may spend weeks or months debating over the perfect bed frame that is right for your budget. And you may spend longer trying to decide on the perfect bed frame to compliment your mattress.

Platform bed frames are an ideal purchase for several reasons, not least of all is the price. They are strong and durable,  they do not require a boxspring, they offer storage space, and they are offered in a variety of styles.

Because platform beds have a slatted support system, they offer support and durability without the use of a boxspring. Removing the boxspring provides several advantages. Not only will you be saving money by not having to purchase the boxspring, but, by removing the boxspring, you remove one of the major causes of why mattresses lose support over time.

Secondly, removing the boxspring opens up space underneath the platform bed. This open space can be used for storage, as many platform bed frames come with drawers or may be purchased separately. This is ideal for space saving. Keeping the space open underneath your platform bed is opted for as well. In a smaller room, it created the feeling of more open space, making the room feel larger.

Another advantage of purchasing a platform bed is variety. There are several types of platform beds ranging from classic to contemporary to modern. With so many styles to choose from, you are sure to be able to find a design that suits your needs and will also fit your budge
