Platform Bed With Storage: Ultimate Guide To Choosing a Platform Bed

Your bedroom should be an oasis where you go to relax, unwind, and wake up rested. And at the center of that oasis is your bed. Not only should it be comfortable, but it should be aesthetically pleasing and functional. Choosing the right bed is essential.

What bed can capture all of these needs? A platform bed with storage is the best choice whether you’re completely redesigning your room or simply looking to replace your bed.

Wilbur Davis Studios crafts beds that are as beautiful as they are functional. Learn more about our platform beds in this platform bed buying guide that come with built-in storage and why they’re the superior choice for your bedroom.

What is a Platform Bed?

Let’s start with the basics. A platform bed is a type of bed frame that is built in a way that they don’t require a box spring. This means you can place your mattress directly on the bed frame and it will still be supported.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t use a box spring on this type of bed if you want to add some height to your bed. People love platform beds because they’re comfortable and practical.

And because they come in a variety of styles, you can easily find one that matches your bedroom decor and design.

Benefits of a Platform Bed

As previously said, a platform bed doesn’t require the use of a box spring, which is a major benefit for many people. Not needing a box spring can save you money, but it can also look better aesthetically.

Platform beds are also durable and sturdy, which allows them to last for years to come. A platform bed with storage built-in can provide you with a  space to keep sheets, pajamas, or other bedroom needs hidden away. A twin platform bed with storage can be a great place for kids to keep their toys.

Pairing a Mattress With a Platform Bed

Because the bed supports the mattress, you can use any kind of mattress with it. However, there are some mattresses that pair better with platform beds than others.

Mattresses made from foam, latex, or memory foam tend to work best with a platform bed. You can use a spring mattress, but they’re often more comfortable paired with a box spring. But know that platform beds have the flexibility to work with a variety of mattresses.

Popular Style of Platform Beds

Platform beds don’t have just one look, so you’ll be able to find the perfect bed style for your room. A solid platform bed has a solid base that has no space to put anything under the bed. But if you don’t want to lose under-the-bed storage, you may choose to opt for a platform bed with storage.

There are also platform beds that have headboards and footboards, only headboards, or neither. Another popular style is a floating platform bed, which has support in only the center, which gives the appearance that the bed is floating.

Wood Platform Beds

Wood is a popular material used for platform beds because it’s sturdy and durable. A wood finish also adds a natural accent, which can add a lot of warmth to a room. Wood is also incredibly timeless, so this bed will always look stylish in the room.

The addition of built-in drawers will allow you to hide away linens, clothes, or accessories without ruining the aesthetic of your room.
