Platform beds are sleek, stylish, and brimming with modern charm. They differ from regular bed frames with their wooden slats or solid platform base, which eliminates the need for a bulky box spring. Not only that, but they also tend to be quieter and most have built-in headboards. If you aren’t sure whether a platform bed is for you because of either budget or style preference, rest assured that there is a large variety to choose from. From budget-conscious upholstered beds oozing with luxury to Mid Century modern frames with strikingly rich finishes. Platform beds are a simple way to modernize any bedroom!
