Modern Platform Bed

 

Modern Platform Bed

On the average, straight lines and a modern look are trademarks of a platform bed. And that simplicity gives platform beds an unmatched versatility. They seem to be a natural fit in almost any setting and a welcome addition to any decor. This bed is an excellent example of that.


Surprisingly this entire bed is built with poplar and plywood. It's simply paint and stain that give this piece its well-heeled appearance. This bed is definitely a platform in name and appearance, but not in reality. It is designed to accept a platform bed mattress by using slats for support. Or by omitting the slats, you can keep your conventional mattress and box spring.


Fortunately, the details and unique design of this bed don't add any real complication to building it. In fact, you'll probably be surprised by how simple the structure and techniques for this project really are.
