Platform bed frames offer a lot of advantages over a typical bed — they save you the cost of a box spring, they help give your bedroom a modern vibe, and the added air circulation they provide can keep your mattress cooler. An aspect of platform beds that could be a pro or con, depending on your family, is that their lower profile makes it easier for your kids to join you in bed at night or in the wee hours of the morning. If you’ve chosen to co-sleep and your children are toddler age or older, this bed style could be a wise choice. Or, buy a platform frame for your kid’s big-kid bed! (Psst: Getting a new bed can be a great excuse to buy some new pillows, a new bedding set, and/or some nice sleep products, in general.)

The platform beds below run the gamut of styles, but all of them can give you a good night’s sleep! (Well, part of that depends on your kids’ sleep habits, so you’re on your own in that department!) Pro tip: When you’re buying a mattress for your platform bed, good options include memory foam, latex foam, and hybrid mattresses, but a lot of that comes down to personal preference.
