So far I’ve shared look-for less-ideas for:

This week, I decided to share BEDS! Specific platform beds.

Now, buying an affordable bed can be a little tricky because I don’t think you should go for the cheapest possible bed. There are definitely quality differences. You definitely want to make sure your buying a quality bed so it will actually last. So, I tried to choose High and Low options that were both of good quality.

I think some of these are going to surprise you!

What’s a platform bed?

Since we’re narrowing in on affordable platform beds for today’s article, I thought I’d start by defining exactly what a platform bed is (in case there’s any confusion).

A platform bed is a type of bed frame that provides a solid base for a mattress without the need for a traditional box spring or foundation. It typically consists of a raised platform or slatted frame that supports the mattress directly.

Platform beds usually have a simple and sleek design, with clean lines and a low-profile aesthetic.

They are known for their stability and durability, as well as their versatility in accommodating various mattress types, including memory foam, latex, and hybrid mattresses.

Platform beds are popular for their modern and minimalist interior design style, but they are totally available in a wide range of styles, materials, and finishes, so you can find something you will like – I promise.

Other Types of Beds

While we’re at it, here are some other types of beds, outside of platform beds that you could choose from!

  • Canopy Bed: For those who want to feel like royalty, canopy beds feature a frame with posts and a fabric covering, creating a cozy and dreamy atmosphere.
  • Bunk Bed: Perfect for maximizing space in kids’ rooms or dorms, bunk beds stack two or more beds vertically, providing sleeping space for more than 1 person. Check out our boy’s shared room with a bunk bed here!
  • Murphy Bed: Ideal for small apartments or multipurpose rooms, Murphy beds can be folded up against the wall when not in use, offering extra floor space during the day.
  • Daybed: A combination of a bed and a sofa, daybeds are great for lounging, napping, or accommodating guests. They often have twin-size mattresses and are designed for relaxation. Sometimes there’s a trundle bed underneath that rolls out to provide a 2nd sleeping space or to combine with the twin-size mattress for a larger sleeping area. Two twin mattress pushed together is about the same width as a king-size bed, but shorter in length.
  • Sofa Bed: A functional solution for guest rooms or living areas, sofa beds can be converted from a comfortable couch to a bed, providing a convenient sleeping option for guests in a living room or even a home office.
  • Four-Poster Bed: With tall posts at each corner, four-poster beds add a touch of elegance and grandeur to the bedroom, creating a focal point.
  • Storage Bed: These beds come with built-in drawers or compartments underneath the mattress, providing extra storage space for bedding, clothing, or other items.

Platform Bed #1

Upholstered Bed: HIGH | LOW

While the price tag is VERY different, the overall look is virtually the same between these two upholstered beds. The quality of the fabric is probably different. But, if the mattress supports are similar, I don’t see why you can’t get the same look for less with this one!


Platform Bed #2

Wooden Spindle Bed: HIGH | LOW

This is one that surprised me! I would think the Low option would be more expensive. And, these are for KING beds! I think that’s a steal for the Low option!


Platform Bed #3

Wood Platform Bed: HIGH | LOW

Another surprise one for me. A solid wood bed will never go out of style and I don’t think you can go wrong with either option.


Platform Bed #4

Indigo Upholstered Bed: HIGH | LOW

Not gonna lie, I love the Low option here more than the High! I love the look of deep-colored velvet beds. It may just be in style right now though. So keep that in mind if you’re going to purchase!


Platform Bed #5

Cane Bed: HIGH | LOW

My favorite interior design trend right now is cane. I’ve been seeing cane and rattan everywhere and I have to say I’m loving the trend. I was truly shocked by this one. I feel like I may just go buy the Low option right now!

I’ll be back soon with another edition of Get The Look For Less!
