Combine functionality and comfort in your bedroom with this wooden queen size platform bed. The frame has a sloped and integrated headboard for optimum pillow placement for sleeping or reading. The raised frame gives storage space under the bed....more
Here's the bottom line... for the price, this bed is sturdier and of better quality than any other bed you will find at IKEA or online. As others have said, the bed is a real pain putting together; but certainly not impossible. The wood is solid, much better quality than I was actually expecting.
This bed should be a 5/5 without a question. Any one that gives it a lower rating is just being picky. I highly recommend the bed.

I put this bed frame together by myself, without a second person. It can be done, but it's not too easy without someone to assist. My greatest criticism is that some the holes for the nuts were not drilled deep enough and thus the nuts did not sit in the particle board deeply enough to sync up properly with the bolt. I actually had to break through the particle board in order to deepen the hole in order to line up the nut with the bolt. Only other thing to be aware of, this unit is incredibly heavy. It arrives in two 70+ lbs. boxes. My guess is that they were both closer to 110-115 lbs. Again, I hauled them up to my apartment on my own, but I highly recommend having someone else help you carry them.
Once assembled (which took about 3.5 hours), the frame is sturdy and looks really nice. The storage in the bottom is not one continuous space, but rather three separate spaces. So certain items, (like a 40" flatscreen TV box, cannot fit underneath given the dimensions.
Overall, I'm happy, but assembly is challenging due to quality control issues in the manufacture.

I picked my bedroom set based on seeing this bed and deciding I liked it the most and it would fit my budget while allowing me to get an entire matching bedroom set instead of just the bed. I am very glad I did! The nightstand and chest are great but this bed is fantastic! The headboard looks fantastic when put together, you can still store the shoe storage underneath the bed and it is extremely sturdy when put together.
A couple things about that however. You WILL need someone else and it WILL take you a while. It isn't hard, just a bunch of pieces. Put them in order according to the directions and don't skip ahead or you will get confused. The slats will be a pain in the behind but I love that they are on rails so once you get it (took us half an hour alone since they tend to slip out during assembly) they no longer budge. Each slat has it's own notch. I do think it took us longer since one of the rails was slightly bent so it became harder to slip them in individually. This is the part you will definitely need two people for.
Another thing. If you like the design of the headboard, make sure you have a platform mattress. I had my old double pillow top from my bed before which by the end of it is around 12 inches thick. I hated it on that bed. It covers 1/3 of the headboard and looked silly. I finally ordered a thinner six inch memory foam mattress on this site and now it looks perfect. If you don't care about that, the other mattress is fine but to me it aggravated me until I ordered something different.
It appears from pictures to be completely covered in laminate and it is not. YOU CAN SEE BARE PARTICLE BOARD. The chemical smell from the wood compounds was very strong and after many months is still detectable. it is cheap very disappointing!

How many inches are there between the floor and the side of the frame? (I.e., if we wanted to use storage containers under the bed, how tall could they be?)michaepf on Oct 20, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
There are two supports that run the width of the bed, so there are three spaces under the bed where items can be stored. There is a 6-inch clearance from the floor to the bottom of the side rails.overstockcustomercare1 on Oct 26, 2012
