The Advantages Of Platform Bed Furniture
A platform bed is making a huge come back into the marketplace. Although very popular in the early 1970’s they seem to becoming ever more popular today. A platform bed is a bed which is raised on closely set slats or a platform, so that a box spring mattress does not need to be used to support the top mattress. One of the major advantages of platform bed furniture is that they can have storage areas built in. Many are actually designed on storage shelving, which can reduce the amount of clutter and furniture in the bedroom. The solid platform or closely set slat bed overhead will greatly reduce the amount of things falling into the storage area as well, meaning that the underside of the bed will be cleaner. If the is lofted, a desk or workspace can be built in under it. The sturdy platform on which platform beds are based also makes the bed more stable. For heavier people, it can be more secure to sleep on, and it will be less likely to collapse if it sees hard use. These beds also tend to be lower to the ground, a configuration which some consumers prefer, especially those aiming for a very simplistic bedroom aesthetic.
Because a platform bed provide support, buying mattresses for them is not as costly, or consumers can concentrate their funds and purchase a very high quality top mattress. However, the firm support of a platform or slats does make it much firmer than a combination bed using a box spring and a top mattress. If your current bed is too soft, a platform bed may be a good solution, but if you do not sleep well on firm bedding, it may not be the best choice for you.
