A platform bed would often be known as a cabin bed, the platform bed is a low-profile, raise frame that supports the mattress. The bed design is generally lowered to the ground when compared to traditional bed frames and box springs and platform beds’ height is usually between 5 to 12 inches.

There are 3 types of platform beds, slatted platform bed, metal platform bed, and solid platform bed.

The most notable feature of the platform bed is that it allows its owner of the bed to sleep comfortably on the mattress without the use of a box spring or separate foundation. what you can also get from a platform bed is the headboard, footboard also additional storage drawers that are located under the bed or at the foot of the bed.

The bed can come in standard bed frame sizes as the platform bed is designed to accommodate common mattress sizes.

Platform bed drawbacks
