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. The Japanese penchant for low furniture is what has inspired the platform bed frame design for most of them are built on clean lines, solid colors and are not very tall.
Adjustable beds are perfect for people who need to be able to change the height of the bed and the angle in order to relieve a bad back. They are also used for people who are bed bound as they can be raised in order for eating or watching TV. Hospital beds are adjustable beds but they can be purchased in more stylish designs for use in the home.
