The Advantages Of Platform Storage BedsThe Advantages Of Platform Storage Beds

Platform storage beds are platform beds with storage devices underneath them. Platform storage beds are a step in the more economical direction. While the precepts of feng shui recommend against objects being placed under the bed (because they disrupt energy flow, thus making for fitful sleep), the precepts of modern living in tight spaces requires space to be used economically.

Think about it: if your bed is raised up off the floor, there is a lot of empty space left over. Now, the reason you are off the floor in the first place is mainly to keep you separated from critters; to keep you at a level where dust settles less frequently, thus allowing you to breather more smoothly; and to put you at a warmer point in the room (heat rises.) But if there are inanimate objects under the bed, do you think those objects will require those conditions? Of course not. Why not utilize the space?

Platform Beds with Drawers

Platform beds with drawers come in a few basic formats. Some platform beds with drawers have framework that allows the drawers to be attached to the bed system, even if you move the bed. These act like conventional drawers ? more like a dress-and-bed combo. These are wonderful for storing things more permanently and privately.

The other option is to have drawers that roll on casters and slip under the bed where they are out of the way. These drawers can be moved all the way across the room, if need be.

With prices ranges of $200 to $3000 or more, you can buy a platform storage bed to suit your needs and d?cor.
