Platform Beds Are the Key to Streamlining Your Master Suite

The clean, minimalist look of a platform bed is a bedroom game-changer. 

By Patricia Cunningham

Do you ever just want to dismantle your bedroom bit by bit, eliminating everything but the barest essentials to create a clean, inviting sanctuary that you actually look forward to entering at the end of the day? Maybe it’s the onset of spring (or too much Marie Kondo), but I've had exactly that impulse lately and have been compulsively going through all the stuff that ends up in my bedroom — either crammed in chests of drawers, stacked on the nightstand, or tossed on the sad chair that never gets sat in. I’m definitely making progress, but there is one area that needs a complete rethink: the bed. 

So now I’d like to replace the bed, and I think I’ve found the answer — a platform bed. A platform bed supports your mattress without the need for a box spring. It also has a clean, minimalist look, and some of them come with fully integrated headboards as well.   

I’ve sourced 10 good options in a wide range of price points. My chi is definitely going to be happy about this.
