    Hard Assembly. Snapped.

    from Chicago, IL

    As stated in many reviews, this assembly did require a drill. It arrived at my house fairly quickly, so I was happy about that. However, It weighed a TON and came in one box. Just in case you don't have anyone to help you bring it into the house, that might come in handy. I put it together fairly easily with drill bits and screws. It looked great, a few of the edges were scuffed when I opened it from the box, but most of them were hidden by bedding and my mattress. Within 4 weeks the screws with the plastic fittings snapped and crumbled, right under my head. I weigh 160 lbs. Wayyyy less than the 500 lb weight limit on this product. I was extremely disappointed and proved the boyfriend right in the process (not good). This bed frame is too cheap to last long. If you want it to last long, you will have to make improvements on the frame itself and re-enforce it. However, that didn't even work as the wood snapped that supported the mattress instead of the screws. So basically I bought a pile of junk. Only buy this product if you plan on using it for less than a month and weigh less than 160 lbs. I would not recommend this product. The product matched what it said in the description, however, you do need to drill some holes.

    Looks great! Easy Assembly!

    from Winston Salem, NC – Verified Buyer

    We ordered this platform bed in lieu of getting split boxsprings. Ours is a queen size in the gray oak. It looks amazing! And its super comfortable, no dipping in the middle when two people are laying on it. Be prepared for a heavy box. The box weighed a grand total of 135 lbs! I would suggest if you have to carry up staircases like we did, disassemble the box first and carry it up piece by piece. Your back will thank you! Assembly for this product was easier than I was expecting. It does take about an hour with two people. While it is not needed (and we did not use one) a power drill would have been helpful, so if you have one handy use it! If not, your hands may be a little sore the next day but as a girl I had no problem screwing in the screws where needed. All and all I would absolutely recommend this product!

    Great Bedframe Platform

    from Ann Arbor, MI – Verified Buyer

    The bedframe came as what it was shown online. It was relatively easy to build, especially if the person is handy. I purchased this item for my daughter, and I did build the platform by myself without getting any help (and I am a mom). It took me about 2 hours from start to finish, but it's doable to be done by one person. The bedframe is sturdy, and we have no complaint about the product up to this point. It is simple and we love its minimalist style. Perfect for small to medium size room as it doesn't take over the room because it is not bulky at all. The delivery was great and on time. The only 'issue' with the delivery was the package is EXTREMELY HEAVY! Be prepared to have someone helping you to carry it inside the house.

    Love this bed frame!

    from Abilene, TX – Verified Buyer

    This is exactly what I was looking for -- an inexpensive bed frame that does not require a box spring. My bedroom is in the top floor of my house and has very low ceilings. I've been using a basic metal frame from the mattress store, and I constantly hit my head on the ceiling when I wake up during the night. This frame allowed me to get rid of my box spring, and makes my room look MUCH bigger than before! As other reviews state, the box is extremely heavy. I did what past reviewers suggested and carried it up piece by piece. However, the assembly was very easy -- I was able to build it by myself in less than 2 hours with zero frustration. The construction feels very sturdy and solid. I would absolutely recommend this bed to anyone. I especially like that I will have the option of adding a headboard at some point in the future, when I move into an apartment with higher ceilings.

    Great solid platform bed

    from Omemee, ON – Verified Buyer

    This is my second South Shore platform bed. A really good solid platform, and easy to assemble. It took me 1 hour to put this together (myself), and I'm a girl!. A second person is really not required. This frame is well constructed and is perfect if you have a head board that you want to use (I have a hand made one). The gray finish is really nice, it is unusual from the typical black or espresso or white. If I need another platform, I will not hesitate to purchase this one. Great service from Wayfair too! Sent on Monday, received on Wednesday, and less than a week before Christmas! The package is very heavy as stated by others. I had to help the Fedex guy to take it off the truck. He was kind enough to bring it up into the house, and I was very grateful for his help. Recommend taking the box apart and moving the pieces individually to bring to the room you are assembling in, or you will hurt yourself.

    Happy with our purchase, good value

    from New Orleans, LA – Verified Buyer

    Happy with the bed. It's very sturdy and simple and that's what we were looking for. It takes some time and effort to assemble but not too bad. Probably about 2 hours for the 2 of us. At first you might think you need a drill for pilot holes but we just screwed them in and it worked fine. We have a box spring and mattress right now, but may take the box spring out. The platform the mattress sits on is a bit bigger than the mattress so you can see some of the unfinished platform when it's just the sheets on the mattress. The comforter covers that up, but if you didn't have a slightly bulky blanket of some sort the space between rail and mattress might bother you. Pros: Good value, sturdy, clean lines Cons: heavy box, takes a bit to assemble but worth it, unfinished platform could show depending on how bed is made

    Great for the price

    from Niles, MI – Verified Buyer

    I was really worried about getting a bed. The cost for everything was really astonishing( I knew they were expensive but I guess I didn't really know). But this does the deed perfectly. If all you want is to get off the ground then this is all you need. My only problem with it was in the assembly. All the pieces were there (always a good start) and it was basic stuff. Insert into a slide in to b etc. But right in the middle of it there were no holes. And if you don't have a drill and it tells you not to use one basically you're screwed. It has the capability to add an optional head board(sold separately) if you feel the need. All and all its great. Save for the 30mins and swearing in the middle of construction.

    As advertised

    from North Hero, VT – Verified Buyer

    The product was as advertised. There were no missing parts just a chip out of one of the horizontal slats. It does require two people to complete the installation if you want to do it in a reasonable amount of time. Yes, it can be done by one person. It was delivered by FedEx and I had a terrible time with their service. I was so aggravated I called Wayfair and asked to have someone else deliver it. I had four days of miss delivery and reschedules from the day Wayfair promised it. The last one sent me over the edge when the FedEx person came back at night and leaned up this huge package on the side of my house in the rain after calling in to office to say he was there at 1130 AM and there was no one home to accept the package. I had been sitting there all day in front of the window to the driveway and not even the usual rabbits showed up that day. .

    from Ohio – Verified Buyer

    We we're trying to assemble the bed last night and discovered that one of the pieces was smashed. It's either the headboard or the footboard. At this point we really can't tell. We're hoping a call into customer service today will result in a replacement piece being sent out right away. I'm sure there won't be a problem. We were really surprised it was damaged because it seems to be packaged VERY well. It doesn't look like it happened during shipping. I'm not sure what's up with it, but it looks like once it's together it's going to be beautiful. I'm still giving it a five and I think it's going to be awesome!

    As expected

    from Creve Coeur, MO – Verified Buyer

    The quality for this bed is as expected for the price. The Natural Maple color actually looks better in person. The package is very heavy. We have to take the pieces out and move them inside little by little. Assembly is ok, took me and my bf about an hour to finish. Do pay attention of the front and back though (if you want to put on a headboard) To make assembly easier you do need to drill some holes. The "wood" veneer is not really wood but it's not distinguishable from a distance. Overall it looks nice and sturdy and fits our need for the guest bedroom. We're happy with this purchase.
