A platform bed is a bed frame that doesn’t require a box underneath the mattress for support and height. Instead of a box, your mattress will rest on a secure foundation of solid wood slats that balance out the weight of the mattress and keep it securely in place. These slats allow for airflow underneath the mattress, which prevents the growth of antimicrobials. Some models can be referred to as ‘drawer beds’ or ‘storage beds’ because they can be fitted with storage drawers underneath. These drawers give the bed an attractive ‘finished’ look from all angles.
