This bed frame is a piece of quality and beautiful. I really care about quality, and I was a bit hesitant to buy this bed because I was not sure how well the slats were designed. There are certainly enough slats (12) , and they are coated and are high quality. I have a latex mattress and did not want to use a box spring so purchased this frame. I am very happy with it as it is sturdy and holds my mattress very well without sagging. The sturdiness of the slats is better than any of the foundations I have researched for my latex mattress. A couple of notes: - Assembly is fairly easy and straightforward. I was able to do it myself with a power drill. The frame onto which the slats are attached are not pre-drilled. I first tried to pre-drill, but the slat holes for the screws do not go all the way through the slats, either, so it was challenging for me to match up the slats with the pre-hilled holes, so I stopped halfway through. By not pre-drilling, I could not get the screws to go in all the way into the frame; however, I am ok with this as they still fit in the slat recessed area for the screws. They seem to stay in place. - The supporting legs are short that they do not reach the floor. I unscrewed one of the leg bottoms, and it now touches, but I honestly don't think I need the supporting legs to touch as the overall frame and legs are pretty sturdy. - They have glue but not sure if it is really necessary. I started to use the glue but then stopped about halfway through as I didn't really see the point and think it should be fine without it.
