This wiki has been updated 15 times since it was first published in January of 2017. Given that, without a good night's sleep, it's nearly impossible to function properly the next day, a bed is the single most important piece of furniture in your home. Platform models are a popular choice that eliminate the need for a box spring, and our top picks come in a wide variety of styles that range from classic to ultra contemporary, and at price points to fit almost any budget. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best platform bed on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

April 03, 2019:

In addition to being attractive, the Zinus Ironline earned the top spot for its durable construction, affordable price and the fact that it comes with padded and nonslip tape to hold your mattress in place and prevent it from making noise when you lie down or roll over. If you're looking for something simple that will be mostly hidden by your mattress, the InStyle Furnishings Stella and KD Frames Nomad are both excellent minimalist options, and the Nexera Nordik takes this concept to the next level by hiding the legs to make it appear to be floating. The Sleep Master Foundation may not win any awards for style, but it's priced at less than $100, can hold an impressive amount of weight, and is easy to set up in just a few minutes. The Zinus Button Tufted and Baxton Studio Colchester have upholstered headboards for a more decorative look, and the Greatime Contemporary has a unique design that's reminiscent of a sleek, low-profile leather couch.

She spent two years as a writer and editor for a large DIY/tutorial startup, where she wrote extensively about technology, security, lifestyle, and home improvement.

She is an avid home cook who has whiled away thousands of hours cooking and obsessively researching all things related to food and food science. Her time in the kitchen has also had the curious side effect of making her an expert at fending off attempted food thievery by her lazy boxer dog.
