This is fine for the price and I needed the short dimensions, but still disappointing. One of the boxes was a little damaged and rattling when I opened it. This had caused a little paint chipping. The real problem was that some of the wrong hardware (extra of one bolt, not enough of another, extra flat washers, not enough lock washers) was included. Since I needed a bed that night, I went to Home Depot and got the hardware I needed.
Bought this for my daughter with a memory foam mattress - It works well with the memory foam because it has the full support foundation - not just slats. She ditched the memory foam mattress after 8 months (didn't like it) and now has a traditional mattress (with no box spring). It sits higher than the previous mattress so there isn't a lot of headboard that shows. Over all it seems like a decent bed frame. She has painted her old furniture black and it goes well in the room.
Wanted a low profile frame that is sturdy and could support a heavy latex mattress without over-taking the room. This is a good solution. Easy to assemble. Sturdy. Not too masculine or large. Finish is nice. Good purchase for the price. Would've loved it in gold or a softer color, so may try to paint it.
This bed is well worth the price. Very pretty and not too hard to set up. The only complaint about the instructions is which way to attach the side rails-- set it up as though you are looking at the bed from behind the headboard, and MAKE SURE THE RAILS ARE FACING THE RIGHT DIRECTION. The part that sticks out towards the inside that holds the metal grates should be closer to the ground. Overall I am very happy with it.
#1. It's made of metal so there are no awkward screw holes to try to match up, it slides easily together, screws tight, very little effort to assemble. #2. Looks stylish - doesn't look cheap - everything came out of the box in perfect condition #3. Doesn't squeak like some frames have for me in the past #4. For the price compared to wood frames, this one kicks their butt!
Nice looking, sturdy bed for the price. We put this bed in a guest room and have a 12 inch memory foam mattress on it. I like that the platform is not slats but a metal grid. It took us about 20 minutes to put together; no extra tools needed. It ships in 2 boxes, one with the side rails and the other with everything else. The second box is very heavy at 81lbs. I can't comment on how it will hold up as we've only had one guest sleep on it so far, but it looks nice and for the price I'd definitely buy it again.
