If someone is looking for contemporary design, with functionality…they should try a platform bed. This is one of the most unique designs on the markettoday.
Platform beds have sleek lines; that add a bold and modern flare to bedroom décor. It exudes elegance in a simplistic “less is more” design. Typically, these beds are on a solid or semi solid frame. It may can made of hardwoods like teak, palm, or ramen. Less typically, it may be made of metal. There is no need for a box spring. The mattress is firmly supported by the frame alone.
The modern style is from a mixture of European and Asian influences. However, the simplistic design will easily fit into any décor theme. Some styles have a simplistic headboard, but many do not have a headboard or footboard. There may also be storage units built into the bed frame. This is perfect for those small cramped bedrooms or those that lack adequate storage space.
The platform bed is always built low to the ground; eliminating the need for bed steps or jumping up to bed. Many people do not have room for bulky bed steps. Plus, bed steps are not exactly design friendly.
Because the bed is low to the ground, it makes it the ideal bed for children, elderly, people with joint diseases, those of short stature, handicapped, etc.. Furthermore, it is also a great way to stay cool in warm climates. Most people know that heat rises. So, of course, the lower to the ground the bed sits…the cooler the occupants will stay.
Platform beds are appealing for a number of reasons. The best part is how it provides such a diverse functionality with a clean design.
