Contemporary Daybed

If you want a seamless look in your bedroom, platform beds are the way to go. The platform supports the mattress, so there's no need for a box spring or extra mattress. In this room, the varying gray tones on the bed complement the gray colors in the walls and metallic elements in the room.The cool, blue tones of the ombre wall treatment enhance the warm shades in the throw pillows.

Extra Storage

This rustic wood platform bed also functions as a bookshelf and vignette. The distressed wood is tempered by the soft bedding, and the vibrant artwork mirrors the books in the bed's built-in bookshelf. 

Reclaimed Wood Bed

It's hard to believe this visually-appealing bed and headboard are made with reclaimed wood. Pendant lighting flanks either side of the bed to highlight it and for symmetry.

Intricate Headboard

Platform beds don't always have to be in a modern bedroom. The clean lines of the upholstered platform bed and lush fabrics of the throw pillows create a serene, romantic feel. The dramatic headboard adds life to the otherwise monochromatic design, while a three-dimensional rug placed underneath the bed brings extra texture.

Bed on Wheels

A cart platform bed and iron-and-glass table bring a more industrial feel to an otherwise traditional bedroom. The cool tones throughout harmonize the industrial pieces with the more traditional ones.

Pairing With Bold Elements

The minimalistic aspect of a platform bed yields the opportunity to make use of bolder prints and patterns in the bedroom. The bright blue movie poster stands out against the neutral yet graphic wallpaper. A satin throw is an inviting addition to the decor that also complements the window treatments.

Glam Yet Relaxing

Luxurious textures are plentiful in this old Hollywood glam bedroom. The plush textures and soft lilac color add a calm, gentle contrast against the rich, charcoal walls and glistening end table and chandelier. The lavender platform bed blends seamlessly with the serene design.

Double Platform

If your bedroom has a loft-style setup, place the bed area there. This allows for more storage without eliminating precious floor space. A tiered nightstand provides extra surface space, and a vertically-striped curtain gives the illusion of more height.

Floral + Brick

A platform bed keeps a low profile to allow the exposed brick wall to act as the focal point. The comforter's floral print balances out the sharp edges and lines of the wall.

Modern Neutral Bedroom With Platform Bed

The solid, wood platform bed melts into the hardwood flooring of this bedroom for a seamless design. Sleek white walls, white bedding and unobtrusive end tables give this room a fresh appearance.

Tufted Detail

This bejeweled, tufted bed makes an impact in this white-and-fuchsia bedroom. The glamour is heightened with sumptuous throw pillows on the bed and bay window seating, which sits below an enchanting chandelier. The Lucite-and-velour chair offers cushy seating, and the subtle damask-patterned wallpaper and mirrored nightstand makethis a majestic bedroom.

Platform Bunk Beds

Floating bunk beds make use of a small area by doubling the sleeping space without relinquishing floor space. The beds are suspended with metal cables, which complement the industrial ladders. The monochromatic colors permit an unassuming and sleek look.

Raised Bed

HGTV Design Star contestant, Kellie Clements, designed this bed for a young boy’s room. A raised platform bed is a brilliant way to store toys, games and all the other necessities of childhood. A color palette in primarty colors bring a classic look, and the faux leather stools serve as a step when bedtime arrives. 


For the craftier person, this DIY platform bed utilizes space to its maximum potential. Metal baskets not only devise a clever storage option, but they are also a striking design element. The baskets can be changed easily for an adaptable look.

Oversized Platform Bed

This oversized, mahogany platform bed anchors this spacious bedroom. The bed features built-in, floating nightstands that are crowned with glistening lamps. The wide ledge surrounding the mattress makes this bed family friendly by making it easier for kids to climb into the bed.

Little Girl’s Floral Decor

A peppy, floral motif resonates in the design of this little girl’s room. The matching coffee table, seating and Roman shades coordinate with the wallpaper on the accent wall. Sweet colors are also infused in the wall color, rug and window seating, while the white platform bed and bedding bring pureness to the pastel colors in the room's decor. 

Sleigh-Style Bed

A painted, folded screen sets a classic background for this uniquely-shaped headboard. The sleek lines of the bed are echoed in the nightstand and ladder bookshelf. Roman shades complete the contemporary style, while the merlot-colored throw pillow adds warmth to the room.
