The bed was very easy to put together by myself. 6'1 adult male. The finish was evenly applied. The bed is very sturdy.
The only negative is one scar, caused by shipping, on the bed. Thankfully it was on the side facing the wall.
Use gloves when handling the slats. They are covered with some nasty black coating.
You may want to get more wood screws for the slats however it is not necessary because they are connected via ribbon tape.
The center support beam feet are easily stripped out if not careful during installation.
If using a memory foam mattress with the bed you will have to use plywood because the slats are not sufficiently supportive.
Bed frame came with 1/2 of the screws needed for the slats. Tells you to put screws in every other slat, not very sturdy, had to get extra screws. About 20 minutes to put together. Cheap bed, get what you pay for. Looks cool in a teen boys room. Can fit storage boxes underneath! Overall an OK buy for the money.
It was fairly easy to put together, but it seems flimsy and weak.We have had it for about 2 weeks and my husband sat on the bottom of the bed last night, not even that hard. The bottom slat broke! He only weighs 175 lbs. Sooo we will see. its pretty enough, and like I said, good for the price.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? Very red
easy to put together- albeit holes were not matching and there were screws missing- no problem if one is used to putting firniture together and has a drill and extra hardware. i was looking for a simple double sized bed for guest room, to give it a bit more... ahem... class. the middle support fell off (not a big deal, doesnt seem to need it anyway), and the bed wasnt as high as i was expecting - i was expecting a platform bed- which i thought meant it would be higher than 3 inches off the ground and was one of the main drives behind getting a new bed frame. however i have grown accustomed to it. also the bed is wider than the mattress. which could be a good thing or an annoying thing depending on your situation. all in all im happy with it! the price was right.
How did the color on site compare with the actual product? it was exactly the same
Please tell us about the quality of the product. honestly i dont think its great. a step above particleboard ikea furniture. but i it looks great, and hasnt broken yet. i gave it 4 stars for its functionality, looks and price.
How accurate was the on site description of the product? pretty accurate
This was a little bit ditzy to assemble, but it's solid and the styling is neutral enough that it would work almost anywhere. I added an IKEA mattress and put it in my guest room. I actually had a housemate for a few months who slept on it every night, and it held up well.
Ordering a platform bed was scary. Reviews vary widely and horror stories about assembly we're intimidating to single senior lady. But all three packages arrived quickly and my son had it all assembled in about half an hour. Love the finish and with a great mattress and tons of big fun pillows my guest room -- where the grandsons hang out -- is functioning perfectly as a bed/couch.
Hi gtrinette, not directly on this bed frame it would have to be a headboard that installs to the wall. Heres a link to some that we offer. Thanks for your interest, hope this helps!
