If You don't want to use a box spring, You need a platform bed. This is the slightly more expensive, but platform version of another bed on overstock. It took about 2 hours to put together. The only modification I made was to screw all the slats down with wood screws. It made It much more sturdy and solid. We currently have a 5" memory foam/ 8" independent spring mattress on It and is working out great. It is a bit too wide, so you can see the slats on one side. We just bought an oversized comforter and It conceals It when not in use. Low to the ground so easy to get in, out, but not good for storage.
