Wooden platform beds are a modern aspect of a contemporary bedroom. The size of a bedroom is a consideration when choosing the type of furniture that will work in the space. Platform beds are a good choice for a smaller bedroom that can seem cluttered with bulky furniture. Platform beds are elegant, close to the floor, and solve many of the problems in a smaller sized room. Some styles of platform beds have storage drawers integrated into the bed. The lower section of a platform bed does not have to accommodate a box spring, which leaves the space under the mattress available for drawers. For rooms that do not have large closets available or floor space for an extra chest of drawers, the built in storage provides extra drawers for the bedroom. Blankets and sheets can be stored in drawers or clothes out of season.
A new mattress set can be an expensive item, but all that is required for wooden platform beds is a mattress. Wooden slats support the mattress instead of a typical box spring. This can reduce the cost of buying a bed and mattress set. The extra money that is normally spent on a box spring to support the mattress can be used for a high quality mattress. Some users prefer to use a box spring, and a platform bed can also be adapted to this preference. This type of bed is versatile enough so that you can make the decision on the use of a box spring or the support slats integrated into the bed.
Platform beds are low on the floor and contemporary in their appearance. The beds are an elegant design for a modern decoration. The lower wooden platform beds are also much less bulky in appearance than a traditional bed design. This creates a feeling of extra space, which is vital in a small room. Several designs are available on platform beds from those with headboards to those who do not. Twin are also available in all king sizes from California to Twin.
