Tips for Choosing a King Platform Bed

Thanks to a vast array of platform beds to choose from, it's easy to find one that elevates the look of any style of bedroom. Begin by considering the overall style and color scheme of the room.

  • Consider Size: Platform beds can be very slim or dramatically oversized in design. Carefully measure the available space in the room and use those measurements to choose a bed that will comfortably fit within the space.
  • Headboard Vs.No Headboard: Some bed styles boast an integrated headboard while others are a platform only, without a headboard. Check out both options to decide which one delivers your personal style.
  • Select a Finish: The bed frame you choose needs to coordinate with the rest of the space. Choose a complementary but contrasting finish to make the bed the focal point. Select the same finish as the rest of your bedroom furniture to create a monochromatic and seamless look.
  • Look for Storage: Some bed frame designs offer integrated storage, such as drawers in the base. Integrated storage can be a fantastic solution for small bedrooms. If selecting a frame with drawers or bins, make sure there is enough space available around the bed to access the storage.
