Types of Platform Beds

Amazing Platform Bed

Platform beds have a design and style all their own, consisting of a mattress which rests upon a platform made of wood or metal, and often without foot boards or headboards. The box spring is replaced by slats or other rigid surfaces for mattress support.

These have become quite popular in recent years, and with good reason. The lightweight frames are easy to transport—perfect for young adults or others who are in a transitional phase of life. They are economically priced and excellent for small bedrooms or rooms where extra space is needed. Other features include the elegant simplicity and the open styling, which allows ample under bed storage space.

Platform beds are available in many styles to suit every need. Some of the most popular are the canopy bed, the sleigh bed, the captain’s bed, the storage bed, and the Japanese bed.

Canopy Platform Bed

The canopy bed provides a level of privacy unrivaled by any other type of bed frame. It is essentially a 4-poster bed with rails at the top for holding the canopy.

Platform Bed

The stylish look of a platform bed has a simple elegance appreciated by all ages. For a child, a teen, or an adult, the look is often sought-after, regardless of the theme or other style influences. But what about contemporary eco-friendly standards?

Now that we’re using words like “renewable” and “sustainable” along with scarier terms such as “off-gassing”, the question of a bed’s green-ness can be just as important to many designers and homeowners as the aesthetic quality itself.

Fortunately, going green with your style choices just got a bit easier. Look for GreenGuard certification on a growing selection of bedroom and household furniture, all strictly scrutinized, starting with the wood, finishing with the stains and veneers.

For example, the 2nd Nature collection from Stanley Furniture’s Young America line is stylish, affordable, and GreenGuard certified. Parents of infants or toddlers will be pleased to know that the 2nd Nature collection includes cribs as well as platform beds.

Add an organic mattress and organic linens to your GreenGuard certified bed for a complete eco-friendly sleeping experience. This can be a great choice for earth advocates and allergy sufferers alike.
