We are not discussing those all singing all dancing bed panels with all the bells and whistles such as an integrated radio, alarm clock, bookshelf and lights. We are discussing plain boards with no bells and no whistles. Your headboard can set the decorative style of a bedroom, and can also express your own style of creativity.
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.
Platform beds have extra support built into the frame. This allows you to sleep comfortably with only a mattress and no box spring. This might seem like a minor detail, but it has some big effects.
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.
Choosing a bedstead or four-poster bed over a divan is a matter of style, as both allow the same mattress choice and can provide equivalent support.
