Platform beds are simple structures that mimic the function of bed frames, but sometimes have a solid bottom instead of slats. They often incorporate a headboard and sometimes come bundled with an innerspring mattress. They are frequently an inexpensive sleep solution. If the platform bed is also a captain’s bed, which has drawers under either side of the platform that supports the mattress, it can also provide storage. This can be a blessing when dealing with dormitories or shared bedrooms. In most cases, they provide relatively inexpensive yet attractive means of furnishing a bedroom.
