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.

We purchased a king size bed, side tables and the under the bed drawers in the natural color. I was very pleased with the qualit
y of the wood and constructions. Very well made, dove-tail joints in the drawers - very solid. Drawers glide quietly and easily. The finish is beautiful. The bed was a bit difficult to put together but it looks great and easily handles our heavy memory foam matress. The under bed drawers are very roomy. I'm purchasing a twin bed for my daughter.

I love this bed! I've been looking for a year for just the right bed frame,this is it. I wanted a cute, but not cutsie frame to
accent a hand made quilt done in spring colors. This one is just what the quilt calls for. The new theme is to be sort of a spring garden, cottage look. The bed will fit into either category. It's darkened bronze finish compliments both my antique end table, my cottage white/pastel quilt and the beach- look love seat near it. My fabrics and decor accent the old garden gate effect, but it could easily fit into a romantic look, Victorian look,or others. Little girls would love it and it can grow with them. The price was so reasonable, even if they didn't, you'd get your moneys worth. The head board was higher than I expected. I get a really nice center piece for my room, no bulk and a light airy feel to the room. The assembly was a cinch. I did it myself, in less time than I'd imagined.It came well packaged in easy to move sections.The head and foot boards don't wobble when I sit on itand the screws are quite easy to get to if they do need tightened someday.
