King Size Platform Beds Make Bedrooms Feel Bigger

One of the best reasons to match a platform bed with your new memory foam mattress is that the low profile that platform beds provide makes bedrooms appear bigger! Having a low profile bed will open up the space in your bedroom so you can get away with upgrading to that king size bed you've always wanted or add an extra dresser with out adding clutter. Whichever option you choose, we recommend pairing your new memory foam mattress with a platform bed frame.

Many platform beds come with slats vs. a solid platform foundation. You can still use your memory foam mattress with a bed that has slats if you create a flat surface first. One easy way to accomplish this is to purchase thin plywood to lay across the slats. Many home supply stores such as Home Depot will even cut down the plywood into smaller squares so you can easily fit them in your car.
