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.
