If you are like many homeowners today not only are you interested in affordable furniture, but you also want furniture that saves space and serves a dual purpose. The platform bed may be just what you are looking for in bedroom furniture.
Platform bedroom sets feature beds raised much higher than standard ones. They provide under bed storage space that can be used for built in drawers or covered with a bed skirt to hide the empty space below. Of course, most people who purchase this type of bed have plans for the under bed area. If not using built in drawers, there are storage containers that will fit easily in the available space.
What many shoppers of space saving bedroom furniture may not be aware of is that platform beds do not use box springs. Slat bases fit into the bed frame, and then a mattress is placed directly on the slats. Slats come in various types of wood and metal and are made for every available size bed.
This style of bed is typically made from solid wood or metal. Many of them include a headboard that provides additional storage cabinets or shelves. Because there is no need to purchase a separate bed rail system, headboard and box springs, platform beds are usually less expensive than traditional bed sets.
This affordable, space saver bed can be found in classic, traditional and modern styles. Be sure to check out our selection in Chicago area locations or online at theroomplace.com.
