I dont write reviews, however need to tell people what this bed really is........ If you have a box spring and mattress this is NOT the bed for you, I ordered based on the Q&A from overstock customer care saying that you NEED a box spring, which I have. After spending over an hour putting this together - fairly easy with the exception that the support slats are hard to attach to the side rails since there are no predrilled holes in the side rails. Once assembled this frame will only work with a mattress, if you use your box spring you need a ladder to get into bed it is so high, the box spring sticks up above the side rails, the mattress sits halfway up the headboard and looks absolutely ridiculous. If you only use the mattress it looks very nice. The wood is a nice deep color and is very sleek and modern looking. Im just very disappointed that the information provided is not accurate and now I have a king box spring that I cant use.
- How did the color on site compare with the actual product? perfect match
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. its ok. the support slats don't have predrilled holes to make it easier to attach
- How accurate was the on site description of the product? the answer from your customer care is incorrect. You can NOT use this bed with a box spring
The first problem, as the previous reviewer has pointed out, is that with a mattress and box spring the bed is like 4 feet off the ground. It's ridiculous. The far worse problem, however, is its construction. My wife and I are not large people, nor do we engage in any activities in the bed that might be considered out of the ordinary, yet the wooden slats that support it horizontally have failed continuously, which causes the bed to slump down in the middle due to lacking support. Overstock as now refused to stand behind the bed, meaning we need to go to the manufacturer--who can say how that'll go? Obviously, the bed needs metal support underpinning it, which isn't likely to be provided by overstock or the manufacturer, meaning it's just a waste of money.
