Things to Look Out For

The market is open for king platform beds. There are wooden beds, metal beds, and even hybrid beds. When you are looking for a platform bed for your room, go for the hybrid version. Because the metal slats may bend downwards, whereas a metal frame provides sturdiness. Try to look for the wooden slats or bentwood slats as they are more comfortable. More importantly, if the wooden slats have center rails for enhanced support, it is even better. 

Not all, but a few of the platform beds have some restrictions when it comes to mattresses. Rest assured that all the king platform bed frames listed above are compatible with all sorts of mattresses. It is always good to check the mattress restrictions of your chosen platform bed. 


Some platforms are very bulky and high. In this instance, you may need to check your room layout and the bed dimensions. Because a bulkier bed can take up a lot of space in the room. Also, check your ceiling height if your bed has a high canopy frame. 

While storage space under the bed is not a safe option, having inbuilt drawers in the king platform bed is more convenient. Some platform beds also have big boxes, and their slats can be lifted up, giving you a bigger area to store your stuff. If you are getting a Bali storage platform bed, you will love the number of spaces and drawers that come with it. 

Faux leather, velvet, linen, or polyester. What’s your style? King size platform beds with metal or wooden frames are sometimes covered in any one of these materials. Remember that where linen and velvet can provide extra smoothness and warmth, leather upholstery is more stylish.
