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.
It is always important to make sure that you receive a design visit from a bedroom designer beforehand. When they turn up they should be professionally dressed and be asking the right questions. During the design visit they should be measuring up the room in detail including the ceiling height. This visit should be free.
