Use a platform bed to combine minimalist and modern design

Platform beds are modern by design. They feature a low frame with a flat surface to support your mattress, which means that you won’t need a foundation or box spring. A modern platform bed frame is designed to fully support any type of mattress. Platform beds make a straightforward and stylish addition to your modern home.

By allowing you to skip the foundation or box spring, platform beds are a cost-effective and versatile option. However, if you have physical limitations that prevent you from getting out of a bed that’s closer to the floor, a platform bed might not be the best choice for you. Because they don’t require a box spring, they are several inches lower than a traditional bed would be.
