Interior designers can look at your bedroom and immediately tell you the type of platform bed sets you should be looking to get. However, not everyone is willing to hire an interior designer to decorate their home. You may want to decorate your home yourself, as it adds a personal touch to the entire thing. You can start with your bedroom. When it comes to buying bedroom furniture, you don’t want to mix and match but prefer buying platform bed sets. Platform bed sets include the bed, nightstands, a chest, a dresser, and a mirror while other sets may include benches, trunks, and armories. It’s easier to buy a bedroom set instead of different pieces of furniture and then combining them. Even then, there’s an entire process of choosing the perfect bedroom set for the master bedroom.
You can use these tips to decide the type of platform bed sets that complement your room the most. Look for the focal point of the bedroom. The location you want to place your bed influences the type of style you choose. Your bedroom’s focal point can be focused on the largest wall, or it can be under the window. You also need to determine the area of the bedroom that receives most of the light from outdoors. Next, you need to measure the room’s dimensions. Platform beds can also make your bedroom appear more spacious and larger due to them being lower to the surface. Now, you’re ready to shop. Platform beds are available in several different sizes. You can buy a twin, extra-long twin, full, queen, standard king, or California king-sized platform bed. Based on the measurements of your room, you’ll select a size.
Now that you know the required size for your bedroom, use masking tape to draw the platform bed’s size in the room. When you’re outlining the size of the platform bed on the floor, add some inches for the bed’s frame as well. Remember, the size of the frame can differ, but only by a few inches. The frame can be 4 to 8 inches larger on both sizes than these standard sizes. Since you’re buying a bed set, keep in mind the location of the other pieces of furniture that will come with the platform bed. Lastly, consider the frame’s height. Most frames are between 9 inches to 15 inches from the ground to the bed frame’s top. With this in mind, you’re ready to shop for platform bed sets.
