I'm thinking about trading in my traditional style mattress and box spring and getting a platform bed. I really love the way they look so sleek with clean lines. The only thing is I'm worried they might be too low. Has anyone switched from a regular or tall box spring and mattress set to a platform bed and did you get used to it or did you find it weird to sleep so low to the ground?

i have a mattress & low profile box spring so the box spring sits all the way inside my bed frame, which I like a lot! Gives it more of a sleek platform-esque look without actually being a platform bed . . . the low platform beds make me really uncomfortable, I don't like sleeping so close to the ground! My ex had one and I never felt like I got a good night's sleep at his place

My bed frame has slats so I just have a mattress - but I picked a frame that sits high enough and my mattress is really tall (firm pillowtop) so I do still have to climb into bed. One of my dogs can't even jump onto it because it's too high.

I love the look of platform beds but higher ones usually. Pottery Barn has some nice ones.

I have the tall wood platform bed from West Elm. It has simple, clean lines but is not super low to the ground. Just lower than a regular mattress and box springs. West Elm also has various headboards to go with the frames.

We have a platform bed (out of necessity, kind of, because we couldn't get our box spring up our stairs! lol... we wanted a new bed anyway, and instead of getting a split box spring we decided to save money and get a platform bed).

Anyhow, I like it and the height doesn't bother me. It doesn't feel too low at all. Our regular bed wasn't much higher, actually (if at all).
