The brothers know all too well that the primary purpose of a bedroom is to help the homeowner sleep better – therefore, choosing the best mattress for you is vital. However, the process doesn’t end there. In their blog (opens in new tab), Drew and Jonathan shares ways to make your master bedroom an oasis – to create a sleep-inducing space that is restful but simultaneously good-looking. One of the most effective ways to do so? Invest in a low-platform bed. ‘Don’t be afraid to go modern with a low-platform bed,’ they say. The brothers recommend choosing a frame with a ’luxuriously padded headboard that makes it easy to read and relax while sitting up.’ This low-platform bed, designed by the brothers (below), is the best place to start (and it’s on sale on Wayfair right now). Drew and Jonathan explain that a sturdy frame such as this will tie the rest of your bedroom ideas together – creating a space that is stylish in the daytime – and restorative in the nighttime.  ‘Plus, if you’d rather prop yourself up, then an adjustable bed frame is the way to go,’ the siblings add. Low-platform beds already have approval from design professionals, but what does science say? Nicole Eichelberger, a BSM-certified sleep expert and consultant at Mattressive (opens in new tab), explains that the benefits of low-platform beds extend beyond their contemporary aesthetic. So, If you’re looking for ways to improve sleep, this sturdy bed type could be the solution.  Drew and Jonathan designed this velvet low-platform bed to combine comfort and style seamlessly. With plush vertical channeling across the headboard and hinged side rails, the bed is created to ‘reach the height of form and function.’ ‘Many platform beds have slats or a solid surface that provides proper support for your mattress, eliminating the need for a box spring,’ she says. And if you’re working with a small bedroom, you can enjoy its space-saving qualities, too.  ‘Because platform beds do not require a separate box spring, they take up less space, making them a good option for smaller rooms or apartments,’ she says. ‘Some platform beds have built-in storage, such as drawers or compartments, which can [also] be useful for saving space and keeping your bedroom organized.’  With approval from the Property Brothers and a certified sleep expert, we predict a low-platform bed come-back this 2023.
