Platform beds look better, as well. The removal of the box spring simplifies the overall appearance of the bed, giving it a streamlined and trendy appearance. Many platform beds have European or Asian-themed designs, and can make your home look more contemporary. A platform beds low profile allows it to take up slightly less space and thus fit better in a wider variety of bedrooms. This freedom of placement is another of the many benefits of owning a platform bed.
More important than how long your bedding will last or how comfortable you are, is the safety of purchasing new mattresses and putting them on old box springs. The risk is that the older ones may not meet flammability standards and thereby put you more at risk even if your bedding does meet the standards. If you have gone to various mattress stores, and you have been encouraged at each one to purchase both bedding and box springs, it is still up to you.
Of all the benefits to platform beds, none is as helpful and noticeable as the end to box springs. Box springs have always been more of a hassle than anything else, and can even ruin the comfort brought about by a nice, new mattress. The idea is that a standard bed frame cannot support a mattress directly. The box spring rests between the mattress and the frame, providing "durable" balance and foundation. In reality, the box spring creaks, wears out, and even breaks after continuous use. The problem is introducing an additional element to the bed - an element that typically doesnt have the strength to last very long without becoming an issue. Platform beds remedy this problem by removing the box spring from the equation altogether.
With platform beds, the mattress rests directly on the frame. The frame contains slats of wood stretching from side to side, and these provide more than enough support for the mattress. Thus, a nice bed frame and a nice mattress can finally exist in harmony without the cumbersome presence of a box spring. This makes overall use of the bed much simpler. For one thing, creaking will be in the past. The springs inside a box spring tend to rust and wear out over time, and this creates audible and annoying noise. The solid construction of platform beds prevents unnecessary shifting and eliminates the noise problem.
