I paid about 60 bucks (40 for the frame and about 20 for shipping) which is a good deal. The bed frame arrived only a few days after I ordered it. It was well packed and arrived intact (no shipping damage to the box or scratches on the product). It was easy to put together-it took me about 15 minutes by myself. It's VERY sturdy (no squeeking, swaying, etc). The center supports are nice for improved back support (I slept REALLY well last night). There are openings where you can easily attach a headboard in the future if you desire. Also, you can easily change the size of the frame later (for example, if I upgrade from a full to a queen size in the future).Helpful hint: do NOT destroy the box when you open it. The only instructions for assembly are the 4 pictures on the front of the box.Overall, I'm very pleased with the purchase. No complaints here.Jessie

My husband and I purchased this bed frame October 2011 and it broke exactly a year later in October 2012. The center support leg has broken off. The bottom left leg tilted inward and is not even touching the floor. We are now using several bricks from our back yard as a "placeholder" where the legs have broken. The frame is also bent on the left side. Super great times.I suppose metal bed frames are just not made the way they used to be. We are saving up for a real nice bed!

I ordered the bed frame on Thursday and it came to me the next day so I was very happy about that. I wrote a previous review stating I was happy it came early but the directions were not easy to follow, but once I figured it out it was fairly simple to put together. Well I received a call from 2K saying they would pay me to remove the comment and I think they removed it regardless. The product is working well for me but I'm not sure it's right for a company to pay people to delete reviews. I will stick with my 3 stars.

I purchased a full platform bed from Ikea a few years ago. Unsurprisingly, the slats that supported the bed started to fall off regularly, making it impossible for me to sleep comfortably on (I'd roll over in the middle of the night, the slats would slip off their shelf, and I would be jolted awake - how annoying!). I loved the look of my bed, but the supports were driving me crazy, so I thought I'd try replacing the slats with this full-sized bed frame.I wasn't exactly sure the frame would fit; based on the measurements it seemed like it was going to be a very tight squeeze. But for the price I thought it was worth a shot; and as it turned out, this was the perfect solution! I had to take the hardware on the inside of my bed out, but once I did this frame fit like it was made for my Ikea bed. As other reviewers have noted, this bed is plenty strong and supportive, and for me so far it has been very quiet and nicely "springy" - I have flopped, sat and slept on my bed without a worry. It was also very easy to set up, and pretty light weight.So, if you have an Ikea bed and can't stand those stupid supports, I'd strongly recommend acquiring this platform! It fit inside my bed like a glove, and if I ever were to purchase another Ikea frame I wouldn't even bother with those clunky, annoying wooden slats in the first place.I've also posted a picture in the gallery so you can see how the frame fits in the Ikea bed - perfectly!

Other than the fact that Fedex completely was slow at delivering this product, it arrived undamaged with everything intact. I know there's people out there who are big. Want to know if this little 100 buck frame is going to hold all that love without bending or breaking under stress. I can assure you as I am laying on my mattress supported by this frame that it is holding sturdy, with no creaks, shakes, or any weird noises that would come from too much weight. It does what it is intended to do and it is SERIOUSLY EASY to assemble. So I will walk you through it.First off, you flip out the first part of the section (theres two identical sections) flat on the floor and open the legs at each end. There are two support beams that open out with little hooks at the ends. You will see the two little wingnuts that obiviously have to be adjusted to slide the hooks under the nuts then tighten the wingnuts down nice and snug. Do this for the next three legs of the section.Second, once you achieve this, make sure that you have enough tightness by testing the beams by jiggling them to check for any movement. If theres none, then you're good. If there is, flip back over and retighten. Recheck and move to the next piece.Third and Last, once you have the second section the same way, bring them right next to each other and attach them using the two long screws in the little bag provided in the box. The black rubber part is to be placed between the two frames (unscrew the wingnuts on the ends of these screws and run the plain long screw through the end of the first section, place black piece on the end of the screw before going through the other side and slide over). Grip the frame tight together and use the last little wingnut to screw snugly at the end. Do this for the other end and you got it.Enjoy your goodnight's sleep.

Great bed frame. We purchased this for our queen size, sleep number bed. This frame is very easy to assemble and is very sturdy. The headboard is Cherry and is sold on Amazon, (ASIN B00CPL2H4E), and Platform Frame Brackets for Headboard and Footboard (Set of 2) , (ASIN B005HOO8Q6). We are extremely pleased with these purchase and the overall look and quality of the purchases.

We purchased this bed frame in queen and it just arrived last night. So far, we absolutely love it and I anticipate we will continue to love it. First of all, it arrived about 5 days before we expected, which is fantastic. The entire thing only took about 30 minutes for us to put together. It's tall enough that normal storage boxes fit underneath which was a huge selling point for me. The entire thing is very sturdy and well made. The color is light and looks beautiful. Our mattress (no box spring needed) is about 12 inches and ends up covering a majority of the headboard once the bed is made (see picture) but it still looks beautiful. All the pieces come zipped in the headboard and once it's built actually would work quite well for extra blanket storage! The slats have Velcro and won't move. Nothing seems poorly made in the slightest. Extremely great value & I highly recommend this bed.

I just received the bed and was surprised how easy it was to put together. Simple instructions - easy to follow. All the tools are included.Being a small female - it took me about 30-45 minutes to put it together by myself!!First - yes the quality is good, but not the best, but again it feels and looks like it should cost more than the listed price!! So when I see people complaining that it's "cheap" - I just think that if they want super high quality - spend more money on a better bed!!! This is one great and definitely better than IKEA quality. Plus free delivery! You can't beat that.I'd recommend anyone to buy with Prime or at least from Amazon - as I originally purchased it from a 3rd party seller and it took forever to ship and then got delayed again with FedEx. I ended up re-ordering with Prime and Amazon was nice enough to expedite my shipping for free, because of the sucky experience with the other seller.Anyway - along with the bed I also bought the Arctic Cool 10-inch memory foam mattress on Amazon too ( it's one of the higher rates and not so expensive) and these 2 for together perfectly!!In my research if the 2 products I wasn't able to find any photos of how high the 10-inch mattress would look on this bed. So I took my own as I was putting it all together!!I hope the photos help someone else decide on the night and thickness of the mattress and the bed.Overall I feel this was a great purchase!!!

I'm very happy that I got this bed to go with the mattress that I also ordered off Amazon (Signature Sleep 12 inch memory foam mattress King). The bed was very easy to put together and I appreciated that the side rails and everything came packaged inside the head board. The back of the Headboard zips so you can hide your weapons or expensive jewlery whatever in there. The slats actually velcro into place which was a really nice bonus if you've ever owned an Ikea bed then you know the feeling of falling in the fall in the middle of the night... No worries for that with this bed. The quality is above Ikea and I recommend it for Americans that are on a budget but want a bed that looks more expensive. The headboard is not visible when you have your pillows up, so if you are looking for a tall statement headboard it is not for you! I didn't mind because I have a mirror above my bed for decor. This bed was easy to assemble and one person could do it alone. The tool they give you is not as superior as the ikea tool. So if you have a spare ikea tool lying around bust it out for this bed. If you order the King size, make sure you have three euro sized pillows to fit across because I only had two on my queen sized and it looks weird. My husband is 6'4" 270lbs and I am 5' 140lbs and the bed supports us. The cat likes to walk across the top of the headboard and his nails sort of pulled at the fabric but hey what can you do.

When you pay upwards of $200.00 (at the time of my ordering and writing this review), you expect a certain level of quality in return for your hard earned money. I wasn't expecting this bed platform to be made out of particle board (one of the reasons for this being three stars) and I should have read further into the details and description.The black color and finish look wonderful especially on my wood floor you can see in the pictures provided.SIX MONTH UPDATE AS PROMISED: The bed platform has held up well as far as a particle bed platform goes. I've noticed that it creeks a lot more than it did when we got it. As big as I am (300+ lbs.) and with my wife being around 130 lbs, I don't think it will hold up much longer. The plastic underneath the slats that hold the bed up broke within the first month of use.I've lowered my product review to two stars instead of three.PACKAGING: I've read so many reviews of people complaining about the size and weight of the package when they received it. Guess what: You're ordering a wooden (albeit particle board) platform for a bed. It's going to have some weight to it (mine wasn't more than 75 lbs.) and be about 6 1/2 feet in length for most beds.PUTTING IT TOGETHER: This should be a two person job or else you might have a difficult time. The instructions for putting it together are absolutely terrible and is one of the reasons why I give this only three stars. Maybe it's just me but they were not clear at all. Once you do make sense of the instructions everything else just kind of falls into place. The boards are all labeled by letters and numbers and all of the holes match up to where they need to be. No pieces were missing. I had everything I needed.Read more ›

I actually read all the reviews before I made my purchase because it did not have the best rating. I noticed how a lot of them complained that it was damaged upon delivery and/or that it was poorly made and had chips and broken pieces. I gave the company the benefit of the doubt and decided to buy the platform bed and I have to admit that I am very pleased with the product. It feels sturdy, looks nice and probably is best for young adults. I do have some tips so make sure you read them all. Oh and it was delivered intact without a scratch! 1. I strongly suggest using a drill ! 2. The item is heavy about 125 lbs so if you are by yourself or even with another person I suggest bringing it as close to your front door as possible and open the package there. Bring every piece to the room you will be using it in because it wont move after you finish it. Be careful not to damage the product whilst transporting the pieces. It will dent and scratch if not handled with care. 3. While assembling the bed, I suggest using wood glue for every screw and dowel used it will help secure the screws and make for a stronger, more reliable bed. Also using wood glue is good because if you ever have to take it apart unscrewing the screws wont strip the wood instead it will strip the glue a bit and you can always put more glue in after. 4. So the directions kind of suck... It says to put the platforms ( unfinished wood) on first then the railings on second (the pieces of finished wood that will secure the mattress. Bad idea . PUT THE SIDE RAILINGS ON FIRST ON THE PLATFORMS THAT WILL BE GOING ON THE EDGES OF THE BED.Read more ›

So just a few quick points on this bed...1. The box is VERY VERY HEAVY.. easily weighs 200 pounds and is 7 feet long and 2 feet wide so be prepaired for that.2. This bed is NOT hard to assemble, I repeat it IS NOT HARD to assemble. You just need to take all the peices out of the box and lay them out on your floor and look at the instructions included. Make sure you are using the correct pieces before you start screwing everythign together and this is very easy to assemble. I did it by myself with a small screwdriver.3. The bed is VERY Sturdy and seems like it will last for awhile. It looks good and had zero damage on any of it. I will say this tho, make sure you have a bed that fits the platform pretty close, the matress board is bare particle board and doesnt look too hot. i have the 12 inch memory foam mattress with a down comfortor and it looks like a $2000 floating bed. :)Overall I give this a 4 out of 5 and recommend it to anyone looking for an easy cheap and very nice bed. 🙂

There is no problem with putting up this bed frame
Sturdy and durable materials used for this product
Only requires a small screwdriver for the assembly
It is important that the mattress fits the platform closely
The whole frame is rather heavy, which makes it challenging to move around
Easy to scratch and dent the frame
The directions for assembly of this full-size bed frame can be tricky to follow
A wood glue may be necessary when putting every piece together
the frame is great and easy to put together. rather than reiterate the common comments i will focus on the errors that show in recent reviews.Pros: pretty much every other review says is correct; no squeaks, sturdy, easy assembly, value, does not slide around (no wheels), etc. also they delivered it in a week (ignore the long shipping dates, at least in the southwest).Cons: it does not likely disassemble easily. you can remove the legs but the frame would be hard to disassemble. the plastic connectors for the wood slats to the frame are kinda cheap. i have not read any reviews that say any broke.Misconceptions and errors in other reviews:1. the legs are strong and align perfectly. any issues with legs or frame are likely the result of poor assembly techniques.2. a mallet is better than a hammer, but a hammer works just fine; you do not need a mallet.3. it should take an average person only 60 minutes to assemble by themselves and go back around to recheck and tighten all fasteners. this time based on using the tools provided, not a power driver. the instructions are very clear and concise. it should not take 2 people 90 minutes to assemble.4. the curved corner pieces are for decoration and finish, they have no structural value at all so being plastic is not an issue.5. there was no varnish odor at all.as noted most of the other reviews are very accurate and helpful. it's a really good product and a great value.July 31st 2013 updatei can hardly believe i have had this for a year. i do wish is was a little lower to the ground but i have never had a better bed frame. now 5 stars.May 22nd 2014 updatei now use an inflatable TPU mattress on this and it works great.Read more ›

Don't believe review that says you need a mallet....you don't.Bed is easily assembled in less than an hour with tools that came with the bed (small hex driver and a little wrench, see pictures). Instructions do say to use a mallet but that is way over kill, and you might even damage the plastic connectors if you used a mallet....I just pushed them in by hand being careful not to damage the plastic connectors. (see images). Compared to Ikea products I have assembled in the past this bed is easier and more sturdy.Important. Insert wood slats into plastic connectors first then attach to bed. Then you can just mash the plastic connectors into the metal frame with your hand.Note: as others reviewers have stated: The plastic connectors holding the slats in are designed to be pushed in and stay there. Therefore if you plan to disassemble this frame and move it frequently the plastic connectors holding the slats in place will probably be damaged by the strain of removal and reassembly. I will upload a picture of the connectors. They are similar in design to the connectors that hold car door interior panels on. They are not designed to be removed and reinstalled multiple times.Frame seems sturdy to me, (I bought the full size to use as a day bed in a sunroom). The four corner legs do attach to corner braces as opposed to sitting directly under the tube of the frame which could account for bending reported in other reviews. In addition to the four corners there are three legs (on the full size version) supporting the middle of the frame, these legs are directly under the tube of the frame and are unlikely to yield to bending stresses. (See assembly instructions I uploaded)This review was written right after I assembled it. Will update review if problems occur.

Having just built the bed I wanted to post a quick review about thebuild. The bed comes in a box 3x15x73.5 inches. Well packaged.Instructions are minimal but very straight forward. Be sure to laythe frames pieces out before you start bolting anything. I noticedthat you should put the frame pieces rotated so that the side with theindentations at the pre-drilled holes were on the outside, that wayyou get a nice flush screw head. Also make sure that they are allfacing the same way because the hole in the long frames that is usedfor the mid-bed legs is not dead center, if they aren't all facing thesame way, you will end up with the mid-legs at different positions.Aside from laying everything out and making sure everything was in itscorrect place, the build is pretty simple albeit tedious. The slatsseem weak but that's from handling them individually, I'm sure once Iput the mattress down and lay over a number of slats it will hold my180lbs fine -- a bundle of sticks is always stronger than anindividual stick.Also... I was worried I didn't have a mallet, but the slats poppedright in for me with just pressing down with the heal of my palm.Good luck with your build -- I will update once I actually get tosleep on the bed!

Takes a few minutes to assemble and put together
Sturdy and no squeaks
No wheels, which prevents the frame from sliding around
Relatively fast shipping
Can be difficult to disassemble
The plastic connectors used for the wood slats to the bed frame seem cheaply-made
I bought this for our Casper king mattress. The assembly only took about one hour (which has to be a new record for out of the box furniture). My box included all the necessary hardware. The frame is very solid and wobble free. The slats are actually more like 3.25 inches apart and quite flimsy. I didn't trust them to keep my mattress from sagging and decided to take a trip to the hardware store for reinforcements. Four cinderblocks with end caps on them were the perfect height to place under the wood slats. I had two pieces of particle board cut 36 3/8 x 76 3/4 and put them on top of the slats. This cost me an extra $40 but was well worth it. I wouldn't trust this frame without the extra support, but after these small modifications I love it. It's very minimal and sturdy.

So far so good with this platform. It was exactly what I needed. I didn't want a headboard or a conventional frame so this was perfect. I put it together by myself and it didnt take me very long at all. All the tools and instructions needed to assemble are included. I am a very large guy (300lbs+) and this frame supports me very well. I have my box and mattress on it so it is very high up. So far it has performed well even during more rigorous activities in bed...I will update this review if anything changes.People have noted that they were missing bolts when they received the product. I was not missing bolts but I could see how/why others were: the bolts are placed in a very flimsy plastic bag near the edge of the box and they had spilled out inside of my box. If the box had been damaged or opened during delivery they would have gone everywhere. Luckily this didn't happen for me.

Great solid bed. Even has velcro along the sides of the strip that attaches the planks to each other which then fixes to the frame itself. This keeps the planks in place very firmly without screwing them down. Very easy to assemble. Fits together very simply, easily, and firmly.
July 5, 2015
Can be easy to put together without any help
Instructions and essential tools for assembly are included
Solid and sturdy frame
Every component fits firmly and easily
The slats appear to be a bit flimsy
Some people decided to use additional pieces of particle board for extra support on top of the slats
I will try to keep this simple. It took me about five minutes to assemble this frame. It is absolutely sturdy, looks great, and has great room underneath for storage. I'm ~240 lbs and my wife is somewhere in the 140's (?... I'm smart enough not to ask). The frame supports us both fine. In fact, the only way I can imagine that this frame could fail is if you screw up the very few and very simple construction steps. It really is pretty idiot-proof.There are very few parts to this frame, which is great. It consists of two separate but identical halves that connect to each other at each end with a pair of bolts, rubber washers, and wing nuts. Once they are connected the entire frame moves as one piece. Each half of the frame folds in half (which makes moving it a breeze), with the middle legs extending straight down once the frame is fully extended. Each end has a pair of legs that then fold down and are supported by two braces that each connect to a bolt in the frame by a notch in the support bar, and then secured by a wing nut. If the legs on each end are not completely straight, then you did not tighten the wing nuts enough. That's about it.If you have a memory foam mattress, simply don't need a box spring, require storage under your bed frame, or just don't want to spend much money, this frame is what you want. I'm fairly confident that the old saying, "You get what you pay for..." does not apply to this frame. It's a great product and a great bargain.
March 9, 2013
This is truly a great product. I was hesitant to order, fearing the frame would be too flimsy due to the low price. I was wrong. This bed frame is very sturdy, very, very easy to assemble. I ordered this for a guest room and I wish I had it for all the bedrooms in our house. A very superior product!

My hubby and I have been known to break our bed frames for reasons I cannot explain, but I am sure you can imagine. This one is holding up better than any other.
January 17, 2013
Comes with an elegant and stylish design
Takes less than 10 minutes to assemble
A support bar helps prolong the quality and life of your mattress
Has a cheap price without compromising quality
The size of the frame is longer and wider by about 2 inches than some customers’ mattress
For those who use a box spring, the frame may not work well

Previous to purchasing this, I tried a couple local bedding stores. When they see a 6'5" guy come in asking for a frame, it's like a free-for-all feeding frenzy. I got the same treatment in both places - oh, with your height you're ABSOLUTELY going to need the "super-extra strength-deluxe-buttressed-whatever-blah-blah frame" which started at about three hundred dollars, which is absolutely ridiculous. This is a great value.It arrived in a very manageable box via UPS, packed with care and function. The directions were easy to follow - no tools required. I don't have a headboard, but they even included the screws and wing-nuts for those who do. As I stated, I am a larger -than-average guy and I wondered about that. However,It could not be any sturdier, especially with the middle brace. I love the way the posts are inset - no more stubbed toes! Less sailor-mouth. This is a well-made frame and a great value.
November 30, 2014
This is AWESOME for the price! A little lower to the ground than I expected, but not a quality issue.It was ridiculously easy to put together, feels VERY sturdy and is clearly marked for fitting a full - king & cal king. I have a cal king and was a great fit. Also comes with attachments if we choose to get a headboard down the road. GREAT BUY!!

FANTASTIC bed frame that offers greast support for heavy-weight mattresses like memory foam and/or gel. The center support is excellent and the fact that this frame accommodates full, queen and king size mattresses is an added bonus. The instructions leave a lot to be desired in my opinion. I know that several reviewers said it was easy enough that a 12 year old could do it but I'm here to tell you that while you don't need to be a rocket scientist it does require a lot of creative thinking since there are only pictures in the instructions. I guess the manufacturer felt the written (or printed) word wasn't worth as much as pictures. If they had included step by step WRITTEN instructions I would have had this put together in 15 minutes. BUT since here were only pictures and I suck at Pictionary it took me nearly 45-60 minutes. I love the end product but seriously, why not write-out the instructions step by step? A WORD OF WARNING: I found the legs on the outside of the center support rod to be "in the way" when I make and/or change my bed and as a result stubbed my toes several times. This is a thick and heavy metal so stubbing your toe is something you'll remember. I solved the problem by going out to my local craft store and buying 2 foam can coozies and setting each of the 2 legs in them. Now when I accidentally bump into the metal legs it doesn't hurt! Problem solved! All in all, the price is absolutely FANTASTIC and the value is FANTASTIC as well! You won't regret this purchase!

Outstanding support for mattresses that are heavy in weight including the gel and memory foam
Can be assembled easily
Center support is durable and sturdy
Adjustable and versatile
Only includes pictures for the instructions on how to assemble
The legs on the outer portion of the center support are heavy and may stub your toes
This product is great, I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. I am using this box spring with a Nature Sleep memory foam mattress. If you have an innerspring mattress your mileage may vary. My review as follows will cover several different aspects of this product and why they are great.Portability: Who knew you could assemble a box spring instead of lugging around a 50+ pound bulky wooden frame? Once assembled, the frame is lightweight and much easier to move around than a traditional box spring. The next time I move I am just going to take it apart instead of it taking up space in the moving truck, very economical in that sense.Assembly: Assembly was very easy, no mechanical inclinations required from the assembler. The set comes with an allen wrench/hex key and you use that to hold bolts in place while you tighten wingnuts with your fingers. Please ignore any reviewer of this product who said it was too difficult to assemble, took too long, or had confusing instructions, they are either lazy or completely incompetent. It took me about an hour to assemble by myself, and it would have taken even less time if I hadn't been half watching TV and drinking a beer while I was putting it together. The instructions aren't written words, but pictures showing which pieces to assemble with which bolts, but if you ever built a Lego set when you were a kid you should be able to handle this. It is easy to tell which pieces should be facing up during assembly, because most have a 'this side up' sticker. The pieces that don't, it either doesn't matter which side is up or you can tell which side should be up because of the notches the slats will fit into at the end.The Cover/ Looks: The zip cover looks nice and the white sides are a soft plush.Read more ›

I was hesitant to purchase this as it only had one very brief review but I took a deep breath and purchased anyway.This review is based on delivery this morning and putting it together right away then taking an hour and a half nap/sleep on it after.PROS:I like that the metal casing is wrapped in a nice fabric and that this frame actually has some proper looking legs to give the bed a bit more elegance and less of that cheap metal frame look.The frame is very study and I feel confident that it will hold the weight of myself and my partner as we are both a bit on the heavy side.CONS:Directions were not the easiest to follow and I found myself really thinking through the diagrams to proceed with assembly.Would I recommend this frame?Yes, I absolutely would go back and purchase this again if I needed another. In fact, I am considering purchasing the Queen size to set up a bed in my guest bedroom.Was it hard to put together?It was not the easiest assembly as the pieces were not marked but after sorting out which was which it came together quite smoothly. With just my mom and myself we had this frame together in just under 2 hours.Hopefully this review will help anyone on the fence about purchasing the frame and that you will find it to work well for you also if you choose to buy for your home.
April 29, 2015
Now that it is done I'm happy! Yet the instructions are poor. Some of the ends were bent and I had to bend it back. The pieces are not marked and that makes it confusing in many ways. DO NOT PUT THIS TOGETHER WITH SOMEBODY WHO IS IMPATIENT OR NOT MECHANICALLY INCLINED. YOU WILL ARGUE AND TELL EACH OTHER WERE TO STICK IT!

This bed frame arrived today and took me about an hour to assemble. As others have mentioned, it is nice that everything comes packaged in a zipper pocket behind the headboard. Also it is very sturdy. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a frame.

I just got this bed setup last night. We were using just a basic metal platform frame before this. The first thing I noticed was just how well packaged this bed was. Everything comes in one box, with all the pieces contained within a zippered pouch on the backside of the headboard.. Genius!The pieces themselves are very solid with pre-installed metal brackets for support. The + style middle support is all metal as well. This made be feel very confident in this bed holding up to shifts and weight.The "leather" feels about as good as you can expect faux leather to feel. It's padded obviously, but it feels nice.. especially for this price point. The bed as a whole looks absolutely amazing. Does it look like something that would cost you $800 at the furniture store? no.. but it doesn't look like it was $250 either... Assembly was a breeze.. instructions were clear and it took me just shy of an hour.Overall, this bed is amazing.. especially for this price point.

If you buy this bed you will not regret it. I wanted something that was sturdy and had that high end hotel feel. I've bought and sold 3 beds looking for that comfortable, no noise, no creeks and cant wait to get in the bed, bed. This is the one! It is the best most affordable and comfortable bed I have had in 10years. It is exactly what I have been looking for. Im tempted to buy another one just to store it in case they stop making them. It did not come with instructions and was not assembled like your typical bed so it took some brain power. However once I figured it out it was easy. The constitution is what makes it more sturdy. I got rid of our box springs since they were no longer needed. My spouse and I get in and out of end without disturbing, shaking or waking the other. The bed makes noooooo noises at all, even my children have jumped on it and extremely sturdy. It's the best item I have bought online says the online super shopper :). It's has even made our mattress more comfortable. I was about to purchase a new mattress but now it's like sleeping on a cloud. I spent 10 months shopping around for a bed to find the right one and I'm beyond elated with this one. If you think you can figure out the instructions without having written ones (which I did and think you can too) you will have the best bed ever and keep some extra money in your pocket from your saving. It came in a compact box where everything was put into a zipped up headboard. This is a fantastic product!We have had it for about 2 months now and it's spectacular!

How to Choose the Best Full-Size Bed?
So, you are probably wondering – how can you select the perfect full-size bed that meets your needs and standard? Well, it helps to understand that there are different bed sizes available in the market. While this may cause you some confusion when it comes to the right one to buy, the most important thing to think about is the comfort and support level that the bed offers. Are you looking for a bed just for yourself, a child, or for you and your partner? In this case, the size must be taken into consideration.
What Bed Sizes Are Available?
As mentioned earlier, you should be able to find a number of bed sizes to choose from. The following are details about each.
Measuring 39 x 75 inches, a twin bed is perfect for an adult sleeper or a child. However, it is not spacious enough to work for two people since there will not be ample space to move. Furthermore, you may opt for a twin bed if your guest bedroom, daybed or bunk bed are small.
A little longer than the twin bed, the twin XL has an additional 5 inches length to accommodate taller adults or teens. The length is similar to that of a king or queen bed, but it is narrower in width.
At 54 x 75 inches in width and length, there should be a good space for 2 adults to sleep on a full-size bed. While others may prefer a wider space such as what is available from a queen or king bed, a full bed should suffice if floor space is a bit of an issue.
With 6 inches more space in terms of width and 5 inches longer than a full-size bed, the queen bed is great for a spacious master bedroom. It is perfect for 2 adults, or even for just one person who wants plenty of space to stretch while sleeping.
King and California King
A king bed is 16 inches wider than a queen bed, so it is a common choice for couples who want more sleeping space. You can even share the bed with your children and maybe a pet or two. On the other hand, California king is for taller people as it comes with 84 inches in length to extend your legs and feel comfortable as you sleep.
How to Choose a Bed?
Now that you learn more about the different sizes of bed, you will need to find out how exactly you can choose the right bed for your needs. Initially, you need to test out a bed before you buy it. Whether you opt for a full-size bed or a King bed, testing it out at the store will give you a better feel at the comfort level that the product offers.
Also, you need to think about the floor space in your bedroom. Do you have a large room, or is it too cramped already to fit in a big bed? A full-size bed may be fine for an average-sized room, particularly if you are sharing the bed with a partner.
Most importantly, determine your budget. The amount you are willing to spend will have a serious impact on your purchasing decision. So, compare several products, learn about their pros and cons, and you should eventually come up with the right choice that matches your standard and budget.
