Platform bed frames are popular in modern bedrooms for they have simple lines, may not have a box spring and are compact in size. Hence, they are suitable even for homes with smaller bedrooms for they do provide space under the bed to store additional stuff. Those who have the money to go in for higher end platform bed frames can get well-crafted designs that come in many rich finishes and different colors.
