Platform Beds – Designed for Modern Living
Platform beds have become one of the most popular choices for bedroom furniture. They are designed with a low profile that sits close to the floor, making them an ideal choice for apartment living. Since they sit close to the floor, they give the appearance of a taller ceiling and therefore a bigger space. Cymax carries a wide range of platform beds in queen, king and twin sizes to make it simple to choose one to find for your space. Read More
Benefits of Platform Beds
A platform bed can also offer some cost savings. By not having to purchase a box spring, you can save money in comparison to a traditional style bed. Or instead of spending money on the boxspring, invest in a high quality memory foam or latex foam mattress for added comfort and support.
Platform beds can be more supportive than regular mattresses. Choose one that has firm supports as opposed to wood slats to ensure a great nights sleep.
Your kids need not be left out. Kids platform beds are available in popular finishes like white and espresso. Choose a platform captain's bed that has built-in storage drawers to make the most of your space.
Platform beds with storage are also a wise choice for students or those who live in studio apartments. Many are designed with built-in shelves or drawers. This style of platform bed serves a twin purpose. It combines sleeping space with the all-important storage.
Platform Bed Style
Platform beds are generally modern in appearance but there is still a full range of designs to choose from. Go traditional, country or modern. At Cymax the choice is yours.
Contemporary platform bed designs mostly do not include a headboard or footboard. High gloss lacquered finishes in gray or black are popular. For a more traditional look, go for the rich feeling of real wood. Finishes like walnut and mahogany are always popular as are styles like the traditional sleigh bed. For a chic look that is somewhere in the middle, a transitional platform bed in dark espresso fits the bill.
Other materials are commonly available. Try a metal platform bed for an industrial look that is perfect for your youth's bedroom. An upholstered platform bed has a luxurious feel and the headboard is comfortable for reading or watching TV.

South Shore Summer Breeze Twin Mates Storage Bed in Chocolate Finish
- Shopper in
Great storage space. Was able to use the areas behind the drawers to store a lot of stuff that doesn't need to be ready at hand.
Just lift the mattress for access. For some reason the twin mattress we bought doesn't fit the bed properly. it is about 2" too narrow so you can see the bare 'wood' underneath. We were also given an incorrect piece with out unit. Wrong colour and wrong holes but thankfuly it was for an area that is hidden and we were able to make it work. It looks very nice and for the price comparable to many we looked at that cost much more.

Prepac Tall Queen Platform Storage Bed in Espresso Wood
- Shopper in
New Brunswick, Canada
We needed a new bed for our small Master Bedroom. We wanted a bed that could also be useful for storage. We found this one on
the internet and decided to order it. 12 additional drawers added real convenience. The simple and straight design does not waste any space in carvings or any other fancy decorations. However, the finish itself is very basic. Quality/price is very good for what the product is. It is solid, the slide drawers works well, the result is exactly what we needed. The company is reliable as what they describe (text and picture) is true. [...]pricing exact. The only thing we added is felt lining between the bed and the floor, as nothing is provided to do so. The wood would have been in direct contact with laminated floor, a risk to scratch it.
