Class, comfort, and durability meet with this bed frame and headboard set—a real masterpiece that you'd expect from Zinus. Just what is so great about this frame/headboard collection? Let's break it down.


First and foremost, everything is sturdy. Lots of platform frames have their mattress-support beams run vertically, which can lead to sagging and less support in the long run. That's not the case here. This frame includes plenty of closely spaced horizontal beams to securely hold your mattress in place. That means no sagging and lots of pressure-relieving comfort for you.*


It only gets better from here. This bed is incredibly stylish, with a sleek modern design that will fit in well with most contemporary décor. The steel and wood combo aesthetic will surely add an elegant touch to your bedroom, making the low price tag that much more attractive. Function, class, and affordability? You've got it.

Best Platform Beds FAQ

Curious to learn more about this type of bed frame? Say no more. Check out our answers to some frequently asked questions about these frames below, so you can decide whether investing in one is the right decision for you.

 

Are platform beds good?

Do you enjoy decluttering? Yes? Then absolutely platform beds are good! You can say goodbye to your old box spring when you invest in one of these frames. Better yet, since many options also come with built-in storage, you may also be able to kick your space-hogging dresser to the curb, too.

 

What is the difference between a regular bed and a platform bed?

Just what is a platform bed, anyway? It's distinct from a regular bed frame, where there is little to no support in the middle of the frame to support a mattress. This is why traditional frames require you to use a box spring to provide a proper foundation for your mattress. A platform bed eliminates the need for a box spring. That's because these beds include beams and slats at their center to properly support a mattress on their own.

 

Can you put a regular mattress on a platform bed?

Yes, as long as the bed is well-designed. That's because the slats should be evenly spaced enough to evenly distribute weight, which means no sagging for you or your mattress. You can even throw shape-conforming mattresses on these frames, like those made of latex or memory foam. However, if you do pair these types of mattresses with platform frames, then you should look closely at the space between the support beams in your frame. If they're more than 6 inches apart, your mattress might end up sagging (which is not good for either the quality of your sleep or the longevity of your mattress).

 

What is the best type of mattress for a platform bed?

The answer to this question is simple—it's whatever the best mattress for you is! That's because platform frames are optimized for supporting any type of mattress. Not sure what the best mattress for you is? You can head on over here, and we'll walk you through the process of finding your best fit, step by step.
