This bed is VERY low to the ground, which I wasn’t expecting. There is maybe 4-5 inches between the bottom and the floor— making it impossible for under bed storage. We are going to see if we can attach it to our higher frame.
Been looking at this bed for a while, and the sale price hooked me. It shipped in three boxes, one which arrived a day earlier than the other two. Also, one of the boxes was broken open woth styrofoam hanging out, so I was concerned about the shape it would be in, but all was ok. Lots of packing to protect it. Took about two hours including unpacking, etc. I was worried about some who noted only three slats; however, the bed it replaced only had three slats, so I felt pretty safe. Also, as noted in the pictures, the slats each have two support legs under them. This bed is heavy, that's for sure. I posted a picture showing about 9 and 1/4 inches from the rail that holds the slats to the top of the rail. Slats we're about 3/4 inch thick so you're probably looking at about 8 and 1/2 inches for your box springs. I will say to be careful placing the box springs into the frame. I scratched the tip of the side rail not realizing that the bottom of box springs had staples in them (grr).
The bed came promptly in 3 boxes. I was extremely impressed with the way all the pieces were packaged-highly professional. You would have thought there was glass in the package. Came with clear instructions which were easy to follow. The bed was put together in under 40 minutes. The only issue was a part that was included that was not part of the bed. It is just beautiful in out guest bedroom. It is beautiful and extremely sturdy. Happy purchase.
Was soooo excited about this bed! It's gorgeous and well priced. Well, we have a king bed and the headboard needs to be a few inches higher in order for the mattress to fit on the bed! With the foot end of the bed lined up with the box spring, I have to tuck the mattress under the headboard in order for it to fit!!! So not only does this shorten my sleeping area, but we have a pretty thick matress and it is very hard to get it to go under headboard part. Major design flaw. Will also make changing the sheets a nightmare. Was so excited about this bed. Needs construction changes to be great.
