How Much Weight Can A Platform Bed Hold?

By Jonathan 2 July 2020


When choosing a new bed frame, there feels so much to consider. Not only do we seek comfort, value for money and style, but also something that’s built to last and will be supportive. We’re often asked just how much our beds can withstand.

How Much Weight Our Beds Take

We’ve found our bed frames can withstand 474kg, or 75 stones in weight. This is achieved by the use of slats which are twice as wide and thick as those found in other bed frames. Each is screwed into position for maximum durability. Our large beds include a central support rail. We also use 100% solid wood in all our bed frames, cutting no corners in the production process.

Why This Matters

A supportive bed and mattress is key to the perfect night's sleep. A bed that moves can be comfortable and causes broken nights sleep. Continuous movement within a bed frame will also cause it to deteriorate over time, making it weaker. This eventually causes it to break. Our bed frames are designed to last a lifetime and come with an 11 year guarantee.

Our beds are all handmade to order and can be bespoke, but some of our most popular platform beds include single platform beds, double platform beds, king size platform beds and super king platfrom beds.

Each can be finished with one of our wde selection of coiulours or hardwood finishes, but some of our most popular options include oak platform beds, white platfrom beds and black platform beds.

What Mattress Should I Use With A Platform Bed?

Any mattress can be used with our platform beds, making it entirely down to personal preference. One of our personal favourites is the Pocket 2000 Memory Mattress. This comes with a 100 night sleep trial & provides a substantial amount of support.
