Platform Beds

Platform beds are also known as cabin beds and they are simply a bed that consists of a raised base. This base itself is made up of a rectangular horizontal solid frame with rows of flexible wooden slats. These slats form a flexible support structure that holds the mattress in place and provide ventilation for a mattress. This eliminates the need for box-springs or a solid mattress base as a foundation.

Types of Platform Beds

Platform beds are normally made from wood, metal, bamboo and even leather. Many modern platform beds also include draws underneath the bed which act as additional household storage areas.

Contemporary Platform Beds

Most modern platform beds sold in South Africa have a contemporary style made up of clean lines and neutral characteristics. They often have a very European feel to them that incorporates microfiber fabrics and even faux leather or real leather padding.

Traditional Platform Beds

Most traditional platform beds available in South Africa are designed to evoke the look and feel of a certain era. They are manufactured to be both functional and stylish with a twist of modern. The styling techniques used in the design of this type of bed often include delicate scroll work built into a headboard.

Storage Platform Beds

One of the most popular types of platform beds includes drawers underneath the bed frame. These draws are used as retractable storage and are perfect for homes with limited cupboard space.

Did you know? Platform beds were originally called loft beds. This is because they were originally built to be high off the ground to allow for a larger living space below. The original platform (or loft) beds were invented during the 1860's and have remained popular for over 140 years with very few changes incorporated into the design over that time.
