Frequently Asked Questions

How are platform beds made

We make platform bed from solid hardwood in our Brooklyn NY workshop. Please view the video to see how it is done.

Are platform beds good for your back?

The active ingredient in a bed is the mattress and not the platform upon which it rests.

The platform is designed to elevate the mattress above the floor to make entry onto the sleeping surface more comfortable and to move the sleeper away from drafts that typically run across the floor.

Therefore the question should not be “are platform beds good for your back?” but rather “is the mattress that you are considering suitable to providing support, minimizing surface pressure and managing the moisture environment around the person sleeping?”.

The real issue is the performance of the mattress – not the platform.

Are platform beds comfortable?

First lets dissect this a bit. No one suggest that you sleep on a platform bed. You will be sleeping on a mattress that rests upon a platform bed.

A platform bed is a bed frame that is designed to support a mattress only – no so-called ” box spring” or “foundation” is needed or even possible.

Therefore the question becomes; Do mattresses exist that provide comfortable support and pressure relief on their own, without a foundation or “box spring”. The answer is absolutely yes they do.

Indeed the so-called “box spring”, more commonly called a “foundation” these days (to avoid running afoul of truth in advertising laws because they generally don’t contain any springs) contribute nothing in the way of support or pressure relief.

Visit a mass market mattress merchant and examine such a foundation, ask what’s inside, test it for yourself. You’ll soon discover that it is but a platform that supports the mattress.

So, in today’s world nearly all beds are platform beds; it just a question of whether or not the mattress dealer is asking you to pay hundreds of dollars for a platform (foundation) that does not have any ergonomically functional purpose.

What is a platform bed?

A platform bed is a bed frame that is designed to support a mattress only – and does not accomodate a so-called box spring.

The real question is: do you need a “box spring”?

The short answer is no, you do not need a box spring to provide the support and pressure relief that is supplied by a good quality mattress.

If you listen closely to mattress sales speak today you might notice that the item formerly referred to as a “box spring” is commonly called a “foundation”. If you were to peer inside of the typical “foundation” you would probably not find any springs, or anything else for that matter.

The foundation has become simply a box sitting on a steel frame that elevated the mattress to a comfortable height. It adds no ergonomic advantage.

Why then, do mass market mattress merchants persist in requiring that you buy one if you wish to buy one of their mattresses? Because it is a very profitable item for them. Since you can’t see inside either the mattress or the foundation they seem somehow equivalent and that is how the merchant prices the combination – so many dollars for each piece and you must buy both or it will “void the warranty”.

Do you need to get caught in this game? certainly not.

How sturdy are platform beds?

The sturdiness of a platform bed depends upon how it is constructed. Our platform beds are constructed of solid hardwood. The parts are joined together with nearly unbreakable steel bolts. This is far and away the most enduring way to make a platform bed frame.

Are platform beds all too low?

We manufacture platform beds in our workshop. Our process employs computer driven design and manufacturing machinery which allows us to alter dimensions, such as mattress height, to our clients’ preferences.

In other words; if we know how thick the mattress is we can adjust the platform configuration to produce the desired height to the top of the mattress.

Who will deliver my furniture?

Within 75 miles  (and to the tip of Long Island) our delivery team will make the delivery in our own delivery van. Our delivery team is very knowledgable and practiced at moving heavy and bulky furniture carefully into your home. If you order is for a sleeper sofa they will be able to disassemble it in order to fit through tight passages, elevators, etc. at no extra charge.

Can adjustable bases be used in a platform bed?

Yes, we can most likely fit an adjustable base into one of our platform beds. We need to know the exact dimensions. The original documentation of the adjustable base probably has this information in a schematic diagram.

Can platform beds use a boxspring?

No. Platform beds are built to avoid the expense of a so-call box-spring and are not designed for such a thick mattress system.

Furthermore, The typical queen size box spring takes up more than 20 cubic feet of space, more than in a typical 9 drawer dresser. By eliminating the foundation or box spring this wasted space can be used for storage in addition to avoiding the cost of buying one in the first place.

The next question is how to best use the storage space. We have been making platform beds in our workshop for more than 35 years and thus have some insight.

Our underbed storage drawers are not permanently attached to the bed frame. Therefore our under bed storage drawers can contain more because no space is taken by drawer hardware. There is also no mechanism to break or become misaligned. Our underbed storage can be repurposed with another bed at some later date, furthermore the platform bed itself can be repurposed without the storage elements. We expertly craft our underbed storage drawers from solid hardwood in order to provide many years of service.
