What are platform beds? Platform beds are part of Asian or Oriental type of décor that has become very popular today. Platform beds are trendy and look really neat, elegant and sophisticatedly simple. They are best for minimalist bedroom décor as they are not overwhelmingly big, demanding attention and eating up both floor and vertical space.
Traditional beds have been always bigger and taller. They look imposing and more so if they are four posters with stands and net curtains etc. The main focus of the bedroom will be the bed always but the traditional beds are more demanding and attention grabbing than these low slung platform beds which many associate with Japanese idea of arranging bedrooms.
The complete bed furniture set that are called Asian décor has low slung bed, low slung and chic looking nightstands also at the same level as the bed. Platform beds are fuss free in construction with just four legs and a platform of slats that form the basic support for the mattress. Mattresses are placed right on the platform made by the wooden slats without any spring box etc.
Original Asian type platforms did not have either headboards or foot boards. But today most of the beds have headboards and some have extended overhanging board running all around that serves as an extra nightstand. Some platform beds are made with drawers underneath for storing some extra linen and stuff – essential for small minimalist décor homes.
For bedrooms done in minimalist décor, platform beds are the best choice. Modern and contemporary style platform beds come with simple but comfortable headboards that have classic clean cut design lines. The bedroom looks clutter free and elegant.

Most of the platform beds have headboards, made of wood but in different finishes. Some are in the natural wood finish; some are finished black with matching nightstands and dressers. Some of the platforms are upholstered beds for extra comfort and with padded and covered headboards. The mattresses are firmly seated on the platform and the effect is minimal and contemporary with highly sophisticated elegance.
