A Whole New Level: 30 Raised Platform Designs for Your Home

You don’t need a reason to have platforms in your home. Do it right and they can look super stylish, taking your home to a whole new level (quite literally). But platforms can be functional too. They can help divide up spaces, add dimension, turn your room multifunctional, define areas in an open plan, and they can be used to eke out extra storage. Yep, they are practical and pretty.

If you’re looking for ideas, we’ve pulled together a few looks from different homes in Singapore. From petite step-ups and quirky nooks to extra-tall podiums and storage stadiums, these raised platform ideas will help you reach loftier heights.

1. There’s practically a whole wardrobe under the bed. The pull-out drawers mean you can have deeper storage space without it being too difficult to reach for your things.

2. Storage cubbies surround this platform bed. Finger drawer pulls mean there are no knobs or handles jutting out.

3. Instead of going for a conventional storage feature wall in this living room, the designer chose platform storage in order to maximise the narrow confines. The elevation also creates a more dramatic visual impact in this HDB flat.

4. Here’s one for the sommeliers and wine aficionados: a platform wine storage!

5. If you’re opting for a traditional Japanese or Muji-themed home, platforms are practically a requisite. We love how this Japanese-style lounge area is defined by the raised height and a pop-up tea table.

6. Another Japanese style home with a raised platform. This time it forms an entire room, which is used as a lounging area and home office. The platform is made up of storage cubbies, one of which doubles as a low floor table.

7. Under-lit by warm LED lights, this slightly raised platform is home to a bar counter/workstation. The curved form creates visual interest in this communal space, and helps to soften the lines and edges in this home.

12. The entire bedroom in this condominium is set on an elevated height, so that the homeowners could draw nearer to the gorgeous view and daylight coming from the windows.

13. Not enough room to store your entire shoe collection? Create a platform in the living room (which is usually just next to the entrance foyer) to keep your sneakers, heels and slippers out of sight.

14. This platform bed serves a few functions: it’s a bookshelf, a bed frame and a study desk all at once! A raised divider keeps the workspace separate from the sleeping area.

15. Instead of having the bed on the platform, the study area is set on the elevated deck instead. The bed is a pull-out so as to save more space in this small room.

19. Decorated with floor cushions, the raised podium situated between the living room and the rest of the home, is set aside as a calming space perfect for indulging in Japanese tea.


20. Because the homeowners wanted a designated cosy and casual nook to laze and lounge about in the living room, a platform was created to separate it from the more formal spaces.

21. A low sofa gets the boost it needs with an elevated platform.

26. This enlarged bedroom comes with a cosy lounge space that is defined by a raised platform. Privacy is created because of the difference in height as well as the clear glass divider.
