Modern Platform Beds
Platform beds are stylish, modern alternatives to expensive furniture. Platform beds are sleek, low-profile beds that use slats instead of box springs to support the mattress, and decorators often use them as the centerpiece of modern bedrooms. These beds, which are basically boxes stacked upon each other, can be designed with or without headboards. One of the many advantages of platform bed is that is very sturdy and can handle a lot of weight. The flat surface supports the entire mattress rather than using a box spring type system. Another great advantage is platform beds are virtually noiseless. You don’t have to hear a squeaky spring every time your spouse tosses and turns throughout the entire night. Also there is a sure cost advantage. You can be saving large amounts of money by not purchasing the box spring.
