  • Options & Customization

Built from solid cherry, maple or oak my Shaker platform bed was originally designed for use with a futon (as shown) but can be made to accept a standard mattress or mattress and boxspring set. Maple slats fit into individual notches in the ledger strips inside each side rail to provide a strong platform that will still allow your mattress or futon to breath. Beds intended for use with a boxsping and mattress set are supplied with angle iron brackets on the side and end rails. All king size platform beds also have a fifth leg in the center of the bed to provide additional support. Knock down mortise and tenon joinery is extremely strong and allows for UPS shipping and easy assembly. For more information on platform bed construction see my bed construction details page. When you order your platform bed we'll ask for the thickness of your mattress or mattress and boxspring and adjust the placement of the headboard accordingly. You can also specify how high you'd like the top of the mattress to be. My Shaker platform bed is also available without a headboard.

As with all my furniture, our platform bed comes with a lifetime guarantee to the original purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship. (Guarantee does not apply in cases of abuse, misuse or neglect nor to normal wear and tear.) In addition, if for any reason you are not fully satisfied with your platform bed you may return it within 30 days of delivery for a full refund of the purchase price. (We do not refund shipping costs and do not accept returns of customized beds. Returned beds must be in resellable condition.)

This bed ships by UPS in multiple packages. Assembly is very straight forward and assembly instructions are included.

These beds are also available without a headboard. Standard height for beds without a headboard is 17.5". This puts the bottom of your mattress at 14.75". This heaght can can changed to suit your needs.

Bed Height: Overall bed height will depend on the thickness of your mattress (or mattress & boxspring). We will place the bottom of the headboard 2" above the top of your mattress. The height to the top of the headboard will be 16" above the top of your mattress for twin, full, and queen beds and 18" above the top of the mattress for king and California king beds. We can also adjust the height from the floor to the bottom of the bed rails (12" in the above photo) which affects the height to the top of your mattress.

The inside dimensions of the bed frame are 1" longer and wider than the standard mattress size to allow for bedding.

Shaker platform beds are available in these standard woods:

  • Cherry
  • Maple
  • Oak (red)

The base prices for Shaker platform beds are cherry, maple or oak and include a slatted hardwood platform for your mattress. No box spring is required. If you would prefer to use a box spring we can supply angle iron supports rather than slats. King size beds also include a center support beam and post.

The following optional items are also available:

  • Center support beam and post for full or queen beds +$150

All beds are built to order so that the headboard can be placed at the correct height in relation to the top of your mattress. When we receive your order we will contact you to get the thickness of your mattress or mattress and box spring. If you will be purchasing a new mattress but haven't picked it out yet please don't let that keep you from ordering your bed now. We typically have an 12-16 week backlog so you'll have at least a few weeks to get your mattress dimensions to us. Placing your order right away will get your bed in our production schedule while you pick out a mattress. All types of mattresses can be used on our beds.
