Popular Platform Beds – Best Bedroom Piece


Getting compact looking beds can actually make your bedroom look bigger. Today small homes and apartments are a reality and many of us need scaled down versions of old times’ four-poster beds or master beds that were really huge. Platform beds can be an ideal choice for small homes and there are quite a lot of choices available for you to pick and choose what may suit your home and style.

Bedroom décor overall can focus around the bed you have chosen. With the low-slung platform beds, you save a lot on the vertical space. The bed lies low to the ground and nightstands are also compact matching with the bed. This results in the furniture not dominating the room but matching and staying compatible to the overall décor.

Platform beds are ideal for loft homes or if you happen to have a small bedroom with sloping ceiling since it takes very less of vertical space. Today some platform beds do have headboards but not too high or too elaborate like for normal beds. Sideboards are almost always separate, but the beds have an extended wooden board-lip that extend all around serving as additional night stand

Box springs are not part of these platform beds. They have slats – placed closely so as to support the mattress directly. This is more comfortable for people with spinal problem who want a flat and a firm kind of bed – and this fits the bill nicely. Platform beds are no fuss beds comprising a bed, with a slatted bed support frame and directly your favorite mattress on it.

There is also storage area under the bed with a low pull out drawer under the bed that can store extra blankets, thin cushions and sheets etc easily. Low rectangular platform beds and round platform beds are both popular. Some round beds have a swing action. Some platforms do not have legs but rest on a square box-like structure which is used for storage.

Futons are another kind of low bed – actually foldable bed that is placed directly on the floor. Though originally only wooden platform beds were available, today there are beds from glass, from fiberglass, from polycarbonate, from bamboo, from cane and compressed wood also. Here are some pretty platform beds from Italy Design. Some are round in shape and others rectangular. How do you like them for your home?
