Correspondingly, is a platform bed better than a boxspring?
Advantages of Platform Beds A platform bed can save owners money because they don't need to spend money on a box spring. These savings can be used towards the purchase of a higher quality mattress. Any type of mattress can be used on a platform bed, but they are perfect for memory foam mattresses.
Subsequently, question is, are platform beds good? Platform beds are very low to the ground, which increases their stability and also makes them great bed frame options for short people. The platform is also perfectly suited for memory foam mattresses, which are popular because they also provide a firm, supportive sleeping surface.
Likewise, can you use a regular mattress on a platform bed?
While, yes, you can put any type of mattress on a platform bed, memory foam, latex, and hybrid mattresses may be the best options for doing so. A mattress and platform bed combo will usually sit lower than a traditional bed, box spring, and mattress set.
What is a platform base bed?
A platform bed, also known as a cabin bed, is a bed with a base consisting of a raised, level, usually rectangular horizontal solid frame, often with rows of flexible wooden slats or latticed structure meant to support just a mattress.
