There are many different types of beds out there today. Since the bed is going to be the focal point the majority of the time in any bedroom, you want to make sure your bed is stylish as well as comfortable for sleeping. When it comes to certain styles of beds, the bedframe makes a big difference in the overall appearance. If you are looking for sleek, modern or contemporary, certain styles of platform beds will be ideal for you. However, platform beds are great for other groups of people, as well, for reasons that have nothing to do with style. Consider these groups of people who could benefit from having a platform bed:
- Elderly- When you age, the ability to get up and down with ease slowly diminishes. A platform bed that is just the right height for aging knees can be of great relief. Additionally, because a platform bed often has a firm platform rather than slats, it can be more supportive for aging bodies.
- Children- One of the most concerning things about children who are transitioning from a crib or toddler bed to a “big kid” bed is that they may roll off and hurt themselves. When your child transitions to a platform bed, they are already low to the ground, making this a great choice for the nervous parent.
Shorter Individuals- Being short comes with its own set of advantages in a world where people are continually growing taller! Platform beds make it easy and more comfortable for a shorter individual to get in and out of bed.
