Best Platform Bed Frames

There are a number of platform bed frames out there. You can easily spend thousands of dollars for a very nice wooden sculpted and chiseled model or a leather or fabric covered model. But over time the wood starts to look worn, or the leather starts peeling, or the fabric starts fading or showing stains. But when all you need is a basic platform to hold up your bed, why waste your hard earned dollars on something very few people will ever see? Unless you're planning on handing down your bed to your children or grandchildren as an heirloom, perhaps one of these great pieces will do the job for a fraction of the cost while lasting many years!

Why a Platform Bed Frame?

Some people just love box springs. If you're one of those people, don't worry, you can still typically use box springs with a number of platform bed frames. But the platform bed frame means that box springs aren't absolutely required. Think of it as better for the environment as well. A platform bed frame means that's just that much less "stuff" that has to be made and shipped when some simple slats that fit in a small box will do the job just fine and dandy!

Best Platform Bed Frame

This one is our favorite! At 14 inches tall, it doesn't sit so high like some beds that look like you might need a ladder, but not so low that you wonder if there's even a bed frame there. We love how it also has holes where you can attach a stylish headboard of your own choosing. It took us probably 25 minutes to put it together, and it was a lot cheaper and better made than what we had found at places like Ikea!

Need A Short Platform Bed Frame?


We've got you covered! This one is only six inches tall, and perfect for those who want a look where the bed doesn't appear to be taking up so much space in a room!

Best Mattress In A Box for 2020

Mattresses in a box have become fairly popular over the past few years. If you're anything like us, you might be rather skeptical of buying a mattress without laying on it first, right? Especially one that FedEx could bring to the door all rolled up in a box. But after a Chiropractor friend of ours recommended that we check a particular one out while shopping for a mattress for a guest room, we figured that maybe they're not so bad after all. We decided to compare the different options out there and here's the ones we found that appear to be the best in quality, value, and price.

Quality Mattresses In a Box?

Mattress quality was one of our biggest factors in making our purchase. As you may have seen around our site, we don't really do disposable for much of anything. When you buy disposable products, it costs more in the long run and has much more of a negative impact on the environment. We'll get to that later. But when you think of what a mattress is composed of, it begins to make sense that you could possibly find quality mattresses in a box. After all, have you never seen a poor quality spring mattress before? Try squishing that down into something portable.

But when you've got something like memory foam that contains so much air, it only makes sense that you could perhaps vacuum the air out of the packaging and get it to shrink down to a much smaller size and then let it re-inflate once it reaches the destination - namely your bedroom. So don't think twice about trying out one of these mattresses just because they have the ability to shrink in size due to the lack of any squeaky springs. We're sure you'll love them as much as we love ours!
