I'm furnishing my apartment on a truly shoestring budget, and need to buy a bed for the first time.
I know nothing about buying beds besides the concepts of frames, mattress and boxsprings (well, that and buying new to avoid bedbugs).
What kinds of factors should I be considering? Where and how should I be buying my bed? What's a reasonable price? Please educate me! This is in the U.S.A. [more inside]

I'm buying a bed for the first time and just got the mattress. Should I get a boxspring and bed frame, or just a bed frame or platform bed (same as bed frame?)? I was considering this ikea frame so it looks easy to disassemble when I move.

What is pushing bedroom design from tall beds, box springs and mattress, to the 4 inches off the floor platform beds? Is it cost, maybe style that moves from space conscious Tokyo/New York, or an architect's fad? Something else?
