Air beds use a mattress that is air-inflated. In many cases they also have a small electric air pump that allows one to change the firmness of the mattress. This type is not to be mistaken for the well known portable air mattress which is used as a travel bed or to sleep temporary guests in a house.
Polyurethane foam mattresses range from the inexpensive, which can be found at Ikea, through to high-specification options, such as Reflex foam as used by Cumberland Bedding Co. Beds 4 Zzzz is just one company that makes mattresses in natural latex derived from the rubber tree.
The lack of a box spring also allows for platform beds to have a lower profile, which gives them a sleek look. Platform beds come in a variety of materials and finishes.
Without the need for a box spring, platform beds take up less space. This is ideal for smaller bedrooms. Even in large rooms, the extra space can be put to other uses, like storage. Many platform beds even have built-in underbed storage. This extra storage is possible because the space is not being taken up by a box-spring.
The next choice of bed would be the bunk bed which is very popular with children or families who have one (usually small) room between two siblings. These types of beds can come in all different colour and materials from wood to aluminium, but on the whole are very similar in their concept of having two people sleep in the same vertical space. As a result of its popularity with children bunk beds are very popular.
