A Look At Platform Bed FramesA Look At Platform Bed Frames

A platform bed is a bed that has no box spring. It is characterized by its low profile; many people swear that they sleep better on a bed that is low to the ground. And with only enough mattress padding to soften your sleep, but not so much that your spine sags, platform bed mattresses can be the most comfortable, healthiest way to sleep.

Platform bed frames come in a very wide variety of sizes and styles. They can be separated into two basic materials categories: wood and metal. A wood platform bed frame can be made of cherry, teak, rosewood, mahogany, maple, dark walnut, pecan, honey oak and more. They can be made of lesser woods as well, but still just as sturdy, and stained or veneered to look like any other kind of wood.

When shopping for a wood platform bed frame, you will run into terms like ?natural,? ?cappuccino,? ?black,? and others. This means they are made of strong particleboard or wood, and painted or otherwise cosmetically altered to look different. All of these choices can be beautiful, depending on your taste, and on the existing d?cor of the room it will stay in.

Metal platform bed frames are made of tubular or sheet steel. They lack the need for repainting, re-staining, or other types of maintenance. They also lack the earthy feel of wood.

Platform bed frames can have headboards and footboards, or they can just be the platform itself, for the ultimate in simplicity, which is what most people like about platform beds in the first place. But there's nothing wrong with a lovely touch here and there, such as a canopy for hanging veils, curtains, or decorations. You might choose to leave your canopy uncovered, just to admire the sheer craftsmanship of it.
