Things to know about platform beds before you buy

Some of our suppliers choose to work with solid woods or veneers. The advantage of veneer is the flat surfaces are uniform in color and will not split or crack over time. Veneer platform beds may get chipped and reveal particleboard or plywood underneath. Veneer is important for many climates and used in solid headboard styles and dressers. Platform beds primarily made from hardwoods, are easy to touch up and can last a lifetime. Combinations of solid wood edges and veneer flat surfaces tend to last the longest. Want to try something more sustainable? Choose the frames made from sustainable wood sources indicated in the descriptions of the beds below. Some of these platform beds will be made using non-toxic stains and wood glue that doesn't off gas.
