What is the difference between the Purple Foundation and Purple Platform Bed?

For the most part, it depends on the final look you want for your bedroom space. The Purple Platform Bed is minimalist in design – a strong but simple frame that works well in clean, minimalist bedroom environments.

The Purple Foundation Bed, on the other hand, offers a stylish mid-century modern design. With an upholstered exterior and wooden legs, the Purple Foundation has a warmer, more polished look. Otherwise, they’re both very simple to set up and require no tools. They are both incredibly strong, with anti-squeak reinforced joints that can hold up to 2,000 pounds. At the end of the day, the one that would work better for you largely depends on the final look and feel you want for your space.

How does the adjustable bed frame work?

The Purple PowerBase adjustable frame can do just about anything. You can control it with the included remote or by downloading the iOS app from the App Store. The PowerBase offers adjustable positions for both head and legs. It also allows you to preset your favorite positions and switch between them with the simple press of a button. This frame also features a zero gravity setting, which allows you to sleep in your body’s most natural sleeping position, improving both your sleep quality and your overall health.

Did we mention the massage feature? Soothe those aching muscles and relax yourself right into a great night’s sleep. Along with USB ports and under-frame lighting, you truly have the bed of the future.

Is it worth the upgrade for the adjustable bed frame over the platform?

That depends on you, your preferences, and your overall sleep and health needs. Some people find that the ability to adjust the tilt and angle of your mattress can make a huge difference in sleep quality. It’s hard to beat a relaxing massage and zero gravity comfort as you drift off to sleep. If you love tech gadgets, LED lighting, USB charging, and controlling your bed with your iPhone, Purple’s adjustable frame can be an exciting and attractive option.

Do the bed frames work with all mattress sizes?

Purple bed frames come in the following mattress sizes:

Purple Platform Bed: Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, and California King
Purple Foundation: Full, Queen, King, and California King
Purple PowerBase: Twin XL, Queen, King, and Split King

How much space should be between bed frame slats when supporting a Purple Mattress?

bed slats

Bed slats should be placed approximately three to four inches apart – This allows enough room for air to flow around the mattress, but not so much room that the slats don’t provide adequate support.

Which Purple Bed Frame is the best?

That, ultimately, is a question that only you can answer. Each bed frame has unique features that appeal to a variety of consumers. First, think about the functionality you’re looking for. If you want a state-of-the-art bed frame that allows you to adjust your mattress at the press of a button or enjoy a massage while your smartphone charges, then the Purple PowerBase is a great choice.

If you want something that looks simply elegant, with an upholstered outer layer, then the Purple Foundation might be your best choice. And if you’re looking for a sleek and minimalist look, you might prefer the Purple Platform Bed. Whichever bed frame you choose, you can rest easy knowing that you’re getting Purple quality, value, and performance.

Will the Purple PowerBase work with my current mattress?

Powerbase with a mattress on it

Yes, as long as it’s bendy and compatible with adjustable frames. It works beautifully with the Purple Mattress, but – if you’d rather use your current mattress, just check with the manufacturer or store where you purchased it. Make sure your mattress has enough flex to bend with the adjustable platform.

What is the warranty for Purple Bed Frames?

The Purple Platform and the Purple Foundation each feature a limited 5-year warranty.

The Purple PowerBase, because of its advanced functionality, has a more detailed warranty – it comes with a 1-year parts and labor warranty, a two-year motor warranty, a 5-year parts warranty, and a 20-year limited warranty.
