from Baltimore, MD – Verified Buyer

Before I purchased this platform bed I did a live chat with one of your representatives and asked whether or not the headboard was included and I was told yes. But when I opened the box and began to put the bed together I realized there was no headboard. I was very upset because had I known I would have never ordered this particular bed. I wish I knew the name of the person I chatted with because I would like to file a complaint because I was given inaccurate information.

Waste of Money

from Chester, VA – Verified Buyer

This product is terrible! We bought it because we wanted to move to a platform bed and also add some storage to our space. It was a little difficult to put together, but after it was all in place it looked great; however, after about 2 months, the main support beam in the middle of the bed snapped in half and both support beams over the drawers snapped! It is a horrible product that is poorly made!!! I will NEVER purchase something from this company again!!! What a waste of money!!!

Platform Bed

from Carrollton, TX – Verified Buyer

I'm really not great at building things, so I was very nervous about putting an entire bed together (and trusting it to hold me in my sleep). It took a few hours, but my boyfriend and I managed to follow the directions and get it together in one piece! The drawers are a little difficult, but definitely worth it. The pictures on the directions were great, but there were times we both wanted a little more instruction. I think the build would have gone faster. That being said... it's incredibly sturdy, and it looks AMAZING. Even knowing how intense the building process is, I'd still buy it again.

Get what you pay for

from Portsmouth, NH – Verified Buyer

I bought this bed after reading the reveiws thinking it would suit my needs... I have had it for around 6 months now. Below are my thoughts: Pros: It looks good if you put it together properly Extra storage (drawers) Cons: Somewhat timely/painful to assemble (they make you screw through non-pre-drilled wood at some point) Fragile - middle support and drawer supports snapped after 4 months (I do tend to fall on my bed/have more than one person in it at a time which could of put extra stress on the bed but I am average weight...) Platform has bowed inward - could be due to the snapped supports Conclusion: If you are looking for a cheap bed that will look good/function for around a year this is the product for you. If you want something more long term, do yourself a favor and shell out a little extra for a upgrade.

Pretty fantastic!

from Hattiesburg, MS – Verified Buyer

The platform is absolutely beautiful. The drawers are practical and functional when pristine. However, one of the holes was already stripped in one of our drawers, so we have one drawer that glides smoothly and one that is more of a problem child. The only thing I'm not a fan of with this bed is that there is nothing to assure that the mattress doesn't slide, so my husband and I are constantly having to move the bed back into place. Other than that, it's beautiful and affordable! It is also very easy to put together; it recommends having two people, though, which definitely makes the process easier.

good for the price

from utah – Verified Buyer

My only disappointment with this is that my king mattress comes right to the edge on both sides. I thought the bed would be a little wider than the mattress. I should've taken measurements, I just assumed that from the pictures. It's a good bed for the price though. It's nothing fancy or something that I'm so in love with, but I do think I got what I paid for. I like the storage drawers and it is sturdy enough and it does look good. I chose this bed because I custom designed a headboard so this is an excellent choice for that as it does not include the headboard.

Overall good purchase

from Manassas, VA – Verified Buyer

Okay so this bed is not perfect BUT it serves our purposes quite well. First of all be prepare for extensive assembly. Only 2 drawers on this bed which is kinda odd because there would have been plenty of room for four. We decided to not fully screw down the back "top" boards so that we could lift them up and have an additional storage compartment. Granted, we have to move the entire mattress to get to the space, but it is perfect for that perfectly good junk that you don't want to part with . . . but never really use. Second, not all boards and drawers line up perfectly. This really didn't affect the overall look of the bed - cause let's face it, most of it is under the mattress. I would buy this product again!

Product matches description but assembling it is a pain

from San Jose, CA – Verified Buyer

Product is pretty much what you expect. Very low profile, reasonable sized storage. Assembling it is a bit of pain (compared to IKA ones) as the holes are not properly aligned. For example, to install the platform on the top, we pretty much threw away the dowels and just aligned all four together. Its easy to go sideways while inserting the screws and break the surface. So be careful and tilt them a bit so that surface breaks, if they happen, are on the inside. Finally, you do need the black marker to hide scruff marks. Pros: Great value, dimensionally correct Cons: Bit of pain to assemble, and not a great finish

Great Bed

from ocala, FL – Verified Buyer

This was such a great deal! I love having the two drawers which add a ton of under-bed storage! The quality exceeded my expectations, definitely a great bed for the money. On the downside, don't set up this bed if you plan on moving very soon. It does not appear stable for moving (will probably have to be taken apart). Also, not all of the holes are pre-drilled so trying to use a handheld screwdriver did prove to be difficult. I would 100% recommend this product if you're looking for a simple platform bed!!

Bruce Gleim

from Vandalia, OH – Verified Buyer

A nice solid platform for a foam mattress. Very difficult to assemble, however, you must look at the pictures verrrry carefully! If you cannot put together a lego set, or a complex model, you are not going to handle this. Also one of the boards was halfway broken during shipping. I just repaired and made do.
