Great bed if you're trying to get more storage space. Assembly was pretty straight forward but I did need to have a drawer side resent to me due to some imperfections in the wood. The customer service rep was warm and friendly. I left a message and she called me back in about 15 min. She quickly processed my request and I got my new drawer side within the week. Overall great buy for the price!
This was a terrible purchase and now we're out $*** for nothing. We put it together two days ago and had the same exact problems as the other reviews with the drawers. Just now, my husband tried to move the bed about an inch and a whole side just blew off. It literally disintegrated. It's all only pressboard. Terrible, terrible, terrible.
I was able to assemble this by myself in just 3 hours or so. I would suggest using an electric screwdriver to speed things up. Overall it's been a great bed frame, we have been sleeping on it for a couple weeks now and nothing had shifted or fell apart.
I'm very handy and this piece had me stumped as to why the drawers were not closing flush to the Bed Frame. One edge of the drawer would touch the bed frame but the other would have a 2 - 3 inch gap. This looked awful. After looking at it for an hour or so and getting out a carpenter square I found that the framing is not strong enough to keep the particle board (the entire bed is made of particle board) from twisting. After squaring all the corners and the 2 center supports and straightening the frame as close as possible I still had 2 drawers that didn't close flush. I have found that the head and foot boards have nothing to keep them from twisting inwards at the bottom so my next attempt will be to add 2 boards that will stretch from the head to the foot board to keep those from twisting or bowing.
We are very happy with this platform bed & would recommend it if you are looking for a simple bed & don't want to spend a ton of money. The bed was delivered in 3 large boxes & it took 2 of us about 3 hours to put together. It wasn't difficult as the directions were pretty straight forward & all of the necessary parts were included. At first some of the drawers would not close properly but once we had the bed in the spot we wanted it & made sure that everything was straight, the drawers fit as they were supposed to. It seems sturdy & works great with our new Helix mattress.
it worked out great for us, went right together with no problems drawers work fine. open/close with no trouble at all. it was a perfect space saver since our bedroom does not have the space for a king bed with dressers. but for sure allow yourself a few hours for assembly it does take time!
I bought this bed a little while back because we were looking for a bed frame for our new king size mattress. The construction was pretty straightforward. I did reinforce the drawers with glue, because the wood itself was kind of flimsy. All in all it's a good bed for the price. Also on the slats themselves I ended up screwing them down because when you put the mattress on they slide all over the place.
Purchased this to go along with our new mattress. Was a little confusion with shipping and due to the shippers neglect had a very minor damaged area. Overstock went above and beyond handling my purchase and I love it. Could not be happier.
Yes it's heavy and yes there are a lot of parts but if you follow the instructions to the letter it will come together beautifully. This is big so two people holding each end as you line up the bolts is a must otherwise you could rip the particle board. It arrived with no dings or scratches and we were very careful not to scratch it putting it together. Be very careful as the two of you move it to square up the bed so you don't put too much pressure on one corner or again you could rip out a bolt. This bed is not solid wood but worth every penny if you take your time and read!!!! I love it!!!
