HIllsdale Bed - Very Good So Far
Lelah from Cheshire, CT– Verified Buyer
Shipping: Bed arrived in just 2 days!
Assembled: Fairly easily according to hubby (but he is an engineer and contractor) only took him 12 hour. He was pleased with how the bed was made.
Looks: We like it. Some details - if you look at the photo, there appears to be no box spring or foundation. So I 'assumed' it was a platform bed. NOT. There are only 3 pine supports that span from the side rails horizontally across the bed. So first we went out and bought plywood to lay down and we used that for two days. Issue - bed didn't look right. The footboard is SO low and the headboard is SO high, that it just looked odd. There was also a gap between the mattress and the headboard, where your pillows could fall through. So we went back out and bought a low profile foundation. We are very happy with the end result.
Fabric: The fabric is nice, It's a little more --- woven --- then I thought it would be, but I'm happy with it.
Storage: I'm happy to say the there is more room under this bed than many of the upholstered beds. This gives me enough room to store the underbed sized storage bins!
Overall, great price, nice looking bed, solidly built. Just don't think you'll be able to use it without a box spring or foundation.
