Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
I understand that making a bed of this type for this price has certain restrictions buuuuuuuuut... The very first time we tried to move it began disintegrating at multiple connections. So it's stuck where it's stuck. I have no idea what it's fate will be when we move.
It is attractive enough.
The materials are a bit cheap to the eye and touch. You must be very diligent when building so as not to strip or crack the wood. I added liquid nails to anything I didn't ever want to take apart again like the drawers. The instructions or not bad until you get to the final assembly of the bed frame. It seems like they ran out of ideas or painted themselves into a corner and just added a step that says "finish". The drawers don't really fit that well and will require some adjusting. It is very stable when assembled.
Bed took ~3.5hours to build by myself.
I read the reviews before and was scared to get this bed in. People have said it is impossible to assemble.. its not. If you follow the instructions its simple. You really need two people though. My boyfriend and I assembled this bed in the time it said we would ( i think it was 105 minutes). The drawers took a little longer though. However it was not hard or impossible. Don't let the bad reviews steer you away from buying this bed. It is wonderful once you get it together, it works really well with a memory foam mattress. It took a while to get here thats the only bad thing. My mattress got here a few days after i ordered and this took like 2 weeks. Well worth it!!!
The product purchased was functional, in terms of storage but additional bolts and screws need to be put in the bags because a few werwe missing from mine so i had to substitute with store baught ones, and I do not feel I should have to. The color is good and over all it is a nice comfortable solid frame once assembled.
It took my Wife and me (we're 68) 3.5 hours to completely assemble this bed. All the parts were delivered including a few extra fasteners. We did three extra steps to improve the product:
1. We glued the base of the draws in the slots
2. We screwed the slats to the center sections ( this maintained the alignment of the draw guides)
3. Since the bed is on a hard wood floor, we added felt sliders to the feet, including the side and center sections to ease moving which my wife can do by herself
We are well satisfied with the value for money and the look of the bed.
After owning this bed for only a short period of time, the screws are no longer staying in the good, the pressed wood around some of the largest screws is crumbling. You can no longer put any wright on the foot of the bed because the piece that connects it to the part the holds the mattress pops out of place. A bed frame should last years not months.
I did tons of searching for platform beds because I really wanted one. The cheapest I found (good quality one) was around $1500.00. Not only was the quality of this platform fantastic, but I found one similar at another store for $1200.00. I paid less and got almost the same platform.
As for putting it together ... I'm happy to say that i did get all the parts and pieces to put it together. It did take me over 4 hours to put together, but I will admit it took me that long because I attempted this feat after having a few glasses of wine. Looking back, it should have only taken me about half the time ... maybe less. I LOVE this platform bed and the mattress (which I also got from overstock) i purchased fits in it perfectly, and I don't need any box springs. I HIGHLY recommend this item!
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Exactly matched ... black is black, and it was black.
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Quality is really great. Solid enough wood, and the whole platform looks of high quality.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? 1 out of 10 ... the description matched is at a 9.
What kind of composite wood is it? is it comparable to oak in its hardness/sturdy???archaneangel on Feb 22, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The composite wood is MDF which is Medium-density fibreboard, an engineered wood product formed by breaking down hardwood or softwood residuals into wood fibres, often in a defibrator, combining it with wax and a resin binder, and forming panels by applying high temperature and pressure. MDF is denser than plywood. It is made up of separated fibres, but can be used as a building material similar in application to plywood. It is stronger and much more dense than normal particle board.
Also MDF is not as hard, durable or sturdy as real Oak wood, But no composite wood is, Compared to real wood.overstockcustomercare1 on Feb 24, 2012
