A Little Bit Of Info On Platform Beds

By Jack Delrento

Platform beds are beds that don’t include a box spring. It is well known for being low to the ground; numerous people think they get a better night’s sleep if they are closer to the floor. Because they come with just enough mattress padding to make your sleep comfortable, but not so much that it will damage your spine, platform mattresses can create the most pleasing, healthy manner to get rest.

You will have a large variety of styles, as well as sizes, to choose from. Most platform beds are made of two kinds of material – wood or metal. There are so many wonderful choices in a wood platform frame – mahogany, cherry, teak, maple, rosewood, dark walnut, pecan, honey oak, to name a few. Those made from less expensive woods are just as solid, and can be painted with stain or even veneered so they will look like whatever wood grain you choose.

Be prepared for terms such as “natural,” “black,” “cappuccino,” and other exotic names when you begin your search for a wood platform bed frame.

What this translates to is a frame made of solid particleboard or wood that has been painted, or at least cosmetically altered to look more like real wood. However, all of the choices out there are beautiful and will go with most any decor you have, so it all depends on your personal taste.

On the other hand, the metal platform bed frames are constructed out of sheet or tubular steel. With the metal platform beds you don’t have to worry about painting, staining, or any maintenance at all. The metal ones also lack that warm, earthy feeling you get from wood.

Platform bed frames can come with a headboard and foot board if you want, or just the platform by itself for real simplicity – which is what draws people to these beds to start with.

There’s no stopping you from adding a nice touch like a canopy that enables hanging curtains, veils, or other decorations of your choosing. There’s also the option of an uncovered canopy for those who enjoy admiring great craftsmanship.
