We’ve developed a Reinforcement Kit that prevents this issue and highly encourage you to use the included kit so you can rest easy knowing that your Purple Platform Bed Frame is stronger than ever.

Are Platform Beds good?

We think they’re great! A platform bed provides excellent support under your mattress. Since it doesn’t require a box spring or any kind of special foundation, the costs of an attractive and comfortable bed assembled are much lower than with a traditional bed frame. A platform bed is also easier to assemble than a traditional frame – so you’ll be getting your best night’s sleep in no time at all.

Using a platform bed can also help you sleep quieter – especially if you or your partner toss and turn at night or feel a little romantic, which often leads to squeaking box springs. The flatter profile of the platform bed has been known to give sleepers the right level of firmness and the open slats can help ventilate your mattress. 

As if that isn’t enough, a platform bed often provides more stability than a traditional frame. This is especially helpful for sleepers who tend to toss and turn, or for heavier sleepers who need better mattress support. 

Platform bed designs can also complement a variety of bedroom décor options – from a minimalist, contemporary look to a retro, mid-century modern or industrial style. Your possibilities for frame style are nearly infinite. The platform frame has become increasingly popular in recent years for those who prefer a clean and uncluttered look.

Why Should You Sleep On a Platform Bed?

Affordability – Since you don’t have to use a box spring with your platform bed, you’re looking at a lower initial investment to get your bed set up and ready for a good night’s sleep.

Clean, natural look – A platform  bed frame is often preferred by those who appreciate a clean design aesthetic and a modern look. Without the extra bells and whistles of a traditional mattress frame, your platform bed will seamlessly blend in with your bedroom décor.

Durability and reliability – Platform beds are known for their outstanding mattress support. With the firm support of a platform  bed frame, you also don’t have to worry about your mattress sagging, which helps protect its useful life.

Extra storage – The Purple Platform Bed offers under-bed storage space, which can help you maximize your space. You can enjoy 13 inches of clearance for storing everything from blankets and linens to off-season clothing and shoes.

Does a Platform Bed need a box spring?

With a platform bed, you don’t need a box spring. Because of its unique construction, your mattress will get plenty of support by sitting directly on the solid platform frame itself – no box spring required. A platform bed works with any mattress, however, some mattress brands require the use of a solid surface or box spring in their warranty terms. That’s why we recommend sleeping on a Purple – the very best mattress in a box.

Can a Platform Bed be used for an adjustable bed?

Theoretically, yes – though specifications can vary, depending on your adjustable bed. However, most adjustable beds come with legs that can be removed, which allows your adjustable bed to fit directly on your platform bed. You may also want to consider using an adjustable bed frame.

Does the Platform Bed come with headboard attachments?

Yes! The Purple Platform Bed comes with headboard attachments in all bed sizes except the Twin XL. Not every platform bed includes headboard attachments, so it’s always a good idea to check. If you need a headboard, the Purple Platform Bed has you covered.

How far apart are the slats?

The distance between the slats of the Purple Platform Bed is 5.5 inches. The slats are arranged in two layers – the top layer is perpendicular to the bottom layer, which creates a more holistically supportive foundation. The corners also feature support beams that can tighten to adjacent legs for extra stability.

Can the Platform Bed be easily moved?

Most users report that a metal bed frame is easy to move. The California King platform weighs 61 lbs, so you may need help moving a very large bed to a different room or into storage. But remember – since you don’t need a box spring with the Purple Platform Platform Bed, that’s one less heavy item to haul around. The Purple Platform Bed is easy to assemble and disassemble, so you can rearrange your furniture or break down your frame, load it up and move it to a new home in no time.

What’s the difference between a regular bed frame and a Platform Bed?

A platform bed, sometimes called a cabin bed, usually includes a raised, level frame. One of the most popular platform bed styles is the legless, boxed modern bed, which features a recessed, clean, minimalist look. Its unique design typically keeps the mattress from being able to move around on the platform, so it’s extremely stable for sleepers who toss and turn a lot. The platform bed frame can have a solid surface, or it may feature slats that are designed to effectively support a mattress. There’s no need for a box spring, even if you sleep on a foam mattress.

In contrast, traditional bed frames, or panel bed frames, have been designed to incorporate a box spring. Generally, panel beds are more likely to have a traditional feel or aesthetic. However, the lines distinguishing these two types of bed frames are much blurrier than they used to be. Today, beds without box springs are quite common. Thanks to improvements in mattress technology, many mattresses no longer require the extra support of the box spring.

What Are Platform Beds Made From?

Wood – Wood is one of the most common types of platform beds. It’s durable, strong, and resists damage – although moisture and humidity can cause wood to warp and weaken over time. If you live in a humid area, it’s a good idea to use a metal bed frame and mattress protector

Metal – A metal platform bed frame is sturdy and strong. While steel and iron are the typical metal choices, you can also find metal frames made of lighter metal material. Some metal bed frames feature a powder-coated or painted outer finish, while others simply flaunt their natural metal finish.

Particle board – Some budget platform beds are made of particle board to keep costs as low as possible. Particle board frames usually feature an outer layer of veneer or laminate to provide the look of wood without the price of wood. But remember – you get what you pay for. While these beds don’t require a big up-front investment, they don’t really offer much in terms of longevity or durability.

Upholstery – You can also find some platform beds with an outer upholstered finish that covers a wooden or metal frame. If you’re partial to the look of fabric, an upholstered bed frame can help you create a warm and cozy look within your bedroom. But fair warning: Upholstered beds can be difficult to keep clean, especially if you choose a light-colored fabric that can’t hide stains.

How much does the platform bed weigh?

The Purple Platform Bed  is available in several mattress sizes and weights:

Twin: 32 lbs
Twin XL: 39 lbs
Full: 51 lbs
Queen: 48 lbs
King: 51 lbs
Cal King: 61 lbs

How much weight can the platform bed hold?

The Purple Platform Bed has been tested to hold up to 2000 pounds! Metal platform beds are known for being strong and sturdy, and ours is no exception. Because of the unique dual-layer construction and positioning of the slats, it’s designed to support heavier weight and absorb more pressure than many other platform beds on the market.

*The Reinforcement Kit is Important

Failure to secure the fasteners with this Reinforcement Kit could result in personal injury or damage. You are advised to secure the fasteners during install before use of the platform. Failure to use the Reinforcement Kit will void your warranty should the fasteners come loose or break.
