What is a platform bed?
A platform bed is an alternative bed frame that features a supportive surface in the form of a solid, raised platform of slats that the mattress directly rests upon. It negates the need for a box spring like that of a traditional frame. The slats are usually built into the frame, but some beds come with a removable slatted rack. Platform beds are often sold without headboards and footboards, making it easy to customize any bed that accommodates attachment hardware. If you are always searching for more space, look for storage beds with drawers built into the platform or headboard shelving that can be attached to the platform.
