Over the years the design of bedroom furniture has evolved over the years. Before the popularity of platform beds, the box-spring bed dominated the bedroom scene. The box springs have coils to support the mattress. The coils provide extra stretch and act as a shock absorber when the body weights press. The platform bed on the other hand supports the mattress with a stiff raised wooden platform minus the spring or coil.
Customers who are relaxed when it comes to bedroom furniture often choose box-spring beds. One thing that needs to be considered when purchasing a box spring bed is the coil’s ability to withstand body weight. The shock absorbing performance of box springs fades over time. The average life expectancy of a mattress and a spring mattress is 8-10 years.
On the other hand, you don’t have to worry about such platform bed issues. Its flat rigid base base is sufficient to support a mattress, very reliable compared to the box-spring type. Since it consists of a rigid platform, it can support the mattress even without a foundation underneath. This will save you money that you can use to purchase a good quality mattress or bedroom accessories.
Nowadays more and more bedroom furniture manufacturers are producing platform beds to follow the current design trend which is minimalist. Thanks to the simple and clean design of the platform bed, it goes well with any minimalist design. The bed frame can be transformed into shelves and drawers making it an ideal container. Clutter and space are now solved.
