Choosing the best platform king bed for your bedroom can be a daunting task. There are many things to consider, from the type of bedroom to its style and purpose. In this article, we explore the different types of bedrooms and the best king platform bed options for them.
The best king platform bed for a residential bedroom
Your bedroom is an oasis. It is a place where you rest after a long day of work and a place where you lounge on your day off. Whether you choose to read a book, watch TV, or just have a nap, your bed should reflect your needs and match your bedroom decor.
A sturdy bed with a comfortable bespoke mattress is all a master bedroom requires. But it is worth considering the décor of the room to decide which type of platform bed suits the room best.
Do you enjoy the look of a contemporary-styled home? If so, you might want to opt for a strong but simple bed frame with a high foot end for a touch of symmetry. A metal frame will offer an almost Spartan look to the room and fit well with cool shades of paint on the walls.
If you’re a traditionalist at heart, a solid wooden bedframe might just be your cup of tea. A bed frame made from pine or oak will last for generations to come and it will match beautifully any soft furnishings you might want to add to the bedroom. The room will exude warmth and comfort if you complement it with soft pillows and fluffy rugs, along with the wooden bedside tables.
An image of a king platform bed is not what immediately comes to mind when you think of a child’s bedroom. In the UK, children usually have their bedrooms with their own designated single beds, each per child. But for many co-sleeping families, that solution is less than ideal. Families with babies, toddlers and young children often find that their perfectly arranged nurseries and out-of-the-magazine child’s bedrooms look amazing, but do not serve their purpose. It is more often than not that children co-sleep with their parents due to nightmares, illness, sleep regression and other issues.
There is no need to snooze on the floor while you hold your toddler’s hand. A great solution is a king platform bed in your children’s bedroom, so siblings can share and parents can lay down with little ones in comfort.

The best king platform bed for commercial bedrooms
Commercial bedrooms can be divided into several categories: hospitals, care homes, hotels, hostels and student accommodation. All these spaces are places of some form of respite and need their bedrooms designed accordingly.
The best king platform bed for a hospital room is sturdy and resilient. A heavy-duty bed with a metal frame is incredibly hygienic and will last through years of wear and tear. Beds with metal frames can be exposed to liquid cleaning products frequently and will not suffer from moisture absorption and degradation. That is why heavy-duty metal beds are ideal for hospitals. These strong beds can be changed, cleaned and disinfected in a manner of minutes without losing the quality of comfort.
Bedrooms in care homes
Bedrooms in care homes need to be furnished with comfortable yet sturdy beds with, preferably, customised mattresses. The best king platform beds for care homes offer plenty of luxury while still providing the home-from-home feeling to the residents. With this purpose in mind, classic wooden bed frames are a great choice. They can be easily complemented with wooden shelves, side tables and soft furnishings.
Hospitality bedrooms can be wonderful places of respite or places to catch up with work on the go. Regardless of the purpose, your guests use your hotel or bed-and-breakfast, the best king platform bed is a piece of essential equipment for such a bedroom.
When considering the best sturdy bed option, you need to think not only about how the bed will be used but how it will be taken care of. For example, it is much easier to daily change sheets on a bed with a low foot end, than on the one with a high foot end or a railed foot end. Also, if your bedrooms are shaped unconventionally, a customised bedframe will make a big difference to the overall atmosphere of the room.

Bedrooms in hostels and student accommodation
For hostels, simplicity and convenience are crucial. A reinforced metal bed frame is the best choice. Strong adult bunk beds are also a viable option. They are simple in design but sturdy and reliable.
Student accommodation bedrooms need durability and comfort. They also need to utilise every bit of space available. A high platform bed does not only serve as a piece of furniture designed for rest but it also provides extra storage space under the bed. In very small bedrooms, a bed with an inbuilt storage solution might make all the difference.
Do you need a space to store your winter clothes or extra blankets? A sturdy divan with storage compartments makes putting away your extra things as easy as pie. Just lift the platform by the handle and you have a large compartment full of extra space ready to explore. And the best part is, this compartment protects your things from dust and moisture, so you don’t have to worry about unnecessary cleaning. If you’re allergic to pollen such an enclosed storage solution might make a difference between a good night's sleep and a good long sneeze.
