Anatomy of a Platform Bed

Platform beds are available in many different styles and materials but they all share one thing in common: you won't need a box spring. The platform part of a platform bed consists of a multitude of slats, a wire mesh or a solid surface platform, which provides support for the mattress. Platform beds are made in several styles like: metal, upholstered, wood and platform bed frames. Whether you're looking to upgrade the size of the bed in a room without changing the furniture or just looking to spruce up the decor of a bedroom, the platform bed offers a functional and stylish addition to any bedroom.
