Platform bed/matress?!!??!

Okay so I have fallen in love with platform beds, they are soo sleek and just look alot better than my sleigh bed...but i havent been able to get ahold of someone who can answer my questions....So i was wondering if anyone knew if you could get away with having a matress only? In most of the pictures ive seen the beds look really low, like theres no way a box spring could be under the matress?! So is the platform itself enough support?!?!? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  • You don't typically use a boxspring when you have a platform bed. We have never had a boxspring with our platform bed, just a regular mattress.

  • Yes. We have a platform bed and we just have a mattress. We have a tempurpedic mattress, but a regular one would work just as well.
