I purchased the bed based on looks and reviews from other customers. I am so glad I did. It went together quickly (did it myself in about 20 minutes at 11:00 at night so I could go to sleep) as the instructions were clear and easy to follow. It is a sturdy, solid bed, more so than one I purchased a few years ago at a local store for nearly four times the price. The finish is shinier than I expected, and the color isn't quite black, but it isn't quite metallic, either. It is pleasing to the eye, and is neutral enough to be used in just about any style of decor. I would not hesitate to recommend this bed to anyone.
My daughter is thrilled with her new bed. Assembly was quite easy; she put it together alone. The look of the bed is exactly what we expected, good color and finish. Won't know how well it holds up until she's had it awhile but it seems perfectly sturdy. Don't expect any problems.
I purchased this bed from Overstock a few years ago (the price was a little lower back then). It was delivered to my door; was easy to assemble, the package contained clear instructions. I am happy with it ever since. I've never heard any 'metal noises' that the other poster referred to. Some of my visitors sat briefly on the footboard without any consequences to the footboard or otherwise. It's a sturdy, durable bed, an excellent value. It looks great, too. It's easy to find matching accessories.
I highly recommend this bed. Love it!
I gave my daughter a budget for redecorating her room and she chose this bed. I had a previous experience buying a bed from Overstock for a similar price and I was very pleased. The sides of this bed are just standard rails, which are ugly. The rails have cone shaped metal legs which fit into plastic cones with a gold ring. Quite unattractive. One leg of the footboard does not reach the ground. I had to bang the top of the headboard into the legs of it (the headboard is not in one piece--it has extender legs) and found the ends were plastic, which broke. Not looking at these features the bed gives an overall fair impression but is not terribly substantial. There were some scratches in the metal when it arrived. It is just above bad enough to send back, but not worth the trouble and expense to do it. If you are shopping for a bed pass on this one.

I bought this as a move up from a twin - I am SO glad I checked overstock.com, I found this same exact bed at a furniture store, but they wanted 2x the price!!! So far, the bed is very sturdy and quiet. I'm a student at a university, and it holds my weight (around 200lbs) just fine. I haven't heard any metal sounds that others are reporting. It is a solid black color with a high gloss finish, it goes very nice with all my other wood furniture. Best of all about this bed is that I can fit stuff under the bed, it allows 7.5 inches of clearance - just enough to fit all my shoe boxes, DVDs (on their side) and other small stuff underneath. Alot of other beds didn't have any, if at all, underbed storage space, which is why I chose the Kristin bed. I full recommend this bed to others, although I wouldn't not recommend it be used by anyone who would sit on or horse around on the footboard or headboard, they are more for decor than anything, I wouldn't trust anyone trying to sit on the rail without bending or scratching it.

Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very nice looks and quality, but I wouldn't put weight on head or foot boards more than necessary just-in-case.

This is a nice looking bed frame although it is just a steel frame with a headboard & footboard attached to the frame. It was not exactly what I had hoped but given the price it works OK. It was not difficult to put together but I had hoped it was more than it is.
This is the third bed I have purchased from this manufacturer. This bed is very good quality and construction and the price was fantastic! It looks like a really expensive bed and no one will ever know what a great deal I got from Overstock.com again!
The measurements listed say that the bed is 55" x 84". Is this correct? A standard full mattress is only 75" long. The frame is 9" longer?sarahfitz on Aug 8, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Hello sarahfitz, yes, this bed is nine inches longer. That gives enough room so that the mattress, plus the bedding will not be too difficult to put on the frame. Thank you for shopping with us! overstockcustomercare1 on Aug 11, 2014
Its more of a matte color but it does have some sheen to it.neeniebeani on May 13, 2014
Are there downward supports or would I be able to slide an extra mattress under this bed?ambripp on Apr 24, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
The side rails have a middle support leg (6 legs in total). Thanks for shopping with us. -Miranda G.overstockcustomercare2 on May 6, 2014
I already have a metal platform frame especially designed for my memory foam mattress. Can the headboard and footboard be attached to a different frame or only the one that it comes with?rochelleabc on Dec 28, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for shopping with us rochelleabc. I have the manual up and I would say that you could probably attach it to a metal bed frame if your frame has something like the "Pragma Headboard Footboard Brackets". It uses a metal side rail and two cross bars. If your bed does not allow you to vary where you attach it to the head board then you wouldn't, but you would still have the side rails that come with the bed. Have a good day.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 31, 2013
The side rail clearance is 7.5 inches, it will be necessary to use a support system, ie, slats or frame and box springs.
