Platform bed frame buying guide

Platform beds are low-profile structures that hold your mattress in place. They can be constructed of solid wood, metal, or wooden slats. A platform bed is an ideal choice for supporting your hybrid or memory foam mattress because it does not require a box spring. They are immediately usable, and it’s easy to set it up. They are constructed without a box spring and typically contain wooden slats or a board on which the mattress rests. These are the basic requirements for a solid support system if you buy a platform bed:

  • King bedroom suites and queen size bed bases have a minimum one centre rail or beam running head to foot with a platform bed frame.
  • A centre beam is used for double platforms. However, a slat set with three legs that extend to the floor is usually sufficient.
  • Slats should be spaced at least 2 1/2 inches apart for heavier mattresses made of natural rubber or latex. For example, a memory foam mattress will require a spacing of 3 inches.
  • Flat, rigid wooden slats made from spruce or poplar are common, though if you can, choose a design that is made from hardwoods like oak or beech.
  • Queen and King platforms that do not have a centre beam should have T-slats. This is a flat top board with heavy-duty support.

As you shop for your new platform bed frame, be sure to look for new sheets, pillows and pillowcases or maybe a bed throw too. Check the seller’s terms and conditions for all relevant information on collection, pickup, postage, delivery, and returns. Some sellers may also offer Afterpay as a payment option on eligible items.
