A Comprehensive Guide on How to Select the Best Platform Bed-Frame
Posted by HaikuDesigns on August 6th, 2016
If you have never slept on a platform-bed, then it’s important to test it before you purchase one. The reason for this is that they come in different heights, depending on the bed-frame itself and how thick the mattress is, especially if want to switch to a latex mattress. A twin rule to this first rule, or recommendation, is if you plan to continue using a convention spring mattress and box-spring on top of a platform bed-frame, you won’t receive much if any orthopedic value.
In light of the last point made above about the choice of a mattress, one of the things a platform-bed offers -- which old-fashion box-spring beds with medal frames often don’t-- is durability. Those thin metal frames can buckle under a lot of weight or multiple kids jumping on them on a regular basis. This would never happen with platform-beds, because they don’t have legs; they rest on the floor, and you cannot surpass the ground when it comes to stable support. Also, if you’re someone who stores things under your bed, as many people do, then simply choose a platform-bed that doubles as a storage-bed with drawers. Then, to quote a worn out cliché that still clearly and efficiently makes its point (after God knows how long): “You get the best of both worlds”. And if you buy a Japanese-style storage platform-bed you get the best of three worlds.
Some people would say that the primary reason they purchase a platform bed is for its aesthetic qualities. For one thing, they’re usually made out of solid wood, and the finish is always exceptional. Unless, of course, the company is cutting corners by using composite wood or glues or stains that were produced from inferior or toxic ingredients. So, it is essential that you do thorough research of the company, of their products, and find out what other customers are saying, as well as visiting the Better Business Bureau’s website.
The last characteristic that many buyers place a lot of weight on is the long history and the honored tradition that lies at the heart of platform-beds. This may seem like a stretch to some readers, but the platform-bed is tangible symbol for the natural desire to fuse the present with the past. Many people do this as a way of creating a more balanced, healthier and more socially conscious future, a future where we can all sleep with peace of mind, a future where race, nationality, economic status, the level of one’s education, or any person’s place of birth is acceptable or at least tolerated by everyone else.
In light of these valid concerns and considerations, the modern platform bed may be the best choice, and if that’s not possible, then sleeping on a couch, in a house where people truly love you, is worth more than any bed or any other material object. Nevertheless, I hope that one day, everyone on planet Earth will have a nice platform bed to sleep in.
