Disappointed from Baltimore, MD on 09/20/2014 – 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 on 11/07/2014 – 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!!!

Get what you pay for from Portsmouth, NH on 02/24/2015 – 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:

It looks good if you put it together properly
Extra storage (drawers)

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.

Platform Bed from Carrollton, TX on 08/19/2014 – 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.

Great deal for the dollar! from Egg Harbor City, NJ on 11/19/2014 – Verified Buyer
Arrived with no damage and even sooner than I expected. Easily assembled - in fact, I assembled and installed it by myself even though directions recommend two people. Looks very nice and seems to be holding up well to my fat cat who likes to jump back and forth between headboard and bed!

(optional) Example: Great value, easy assembly, durable finish
(optional) Example: Not enough color options

Like it but it was a pain to put together. from Vandalia, IL on 03/14/2015 – Verified Buyer
It is a nice frame but it came in about a million pieces and the instructions were only pictures, no words. Also there were about 5 different types of screws that weren't labeled. You would look at the instructions that showed a picture of a screw with a number by it, but none of the bags of screws were actually labeled. Took hours to put together. We started at 6:30 and by 10:30 finally had it together. Also the drawers seem hard to open once the bed is together with the mattress on but it may be because we have thick carpet.

Great product, excellent service from Seattle, WA on 03/24/2014 – Verified Buyer
Very pleased. Relatively easy to assemble. Product is well made and even comes with the pieces needed to attach to your bedframe. One thing to note is that the headboard is not fully finished all the way around. There are some unfinished sections at the back of the headboard meaning it has to be leaning against the wall for this to be hidden. This was not a problem for me but could be for some people.

Good for the price! Anticipate ssembly from Stafford, NY on 10/12/2015 – Verified Buyer
Looks wonderful! But be aware that there is quite a bit of assembly and the directions can be a bit of a guessing game (we had to undo some of our work along the way) Instructions are not color coordinate but the different bolts and screws are different colors and the instructions give you no indication of which to use for very different parts of the bed. Made it very frustrating. Also, they gave no real direction of which boards need to be in which direction for assembly, except for a poorly pixilated picture of the parts, no real size scale sed. Made it a guessing game and re-assembly for a lot of it. Patience is key. Relationship test is another key. Good luck. We figured it out and are still married.

Pros: Beautiful. Still married.
Cons: Instructions are not color coordinate but the different bolts and screws are different colors and the instructions give you no indication of which to use for very different parts of the bed. Made it very frustrating.

Great piece minus the packaging from Longview, WA on 02/14/2015 – Verified Buyer
The headboard is exactly as pictured. We ordered the dark chocolate one, when we opened it to put together there was a scratch on the actual head piece part. There was not any protection between the head piece and other parts in the box, I'm assuming this is where the scratch occurred. Luckily it came with a color match pen so once we put it together (which was a task) we were able to fill the scratch in with the paint pen. It's sturdy, heavy and Looks great. It matches the rest of our dark espresso furniture too

Decent product for the price but assembly requires some creative problem solving. from Rochester, NY on 10/25/2015 – Verified Buyer
This product is pretty good now that I have everything assembled. The pieces are very good quality and things are solid and stable now that it is all together. I would recommend this bed but only after offering a few warnings:

The pieces are not cut completely straight and the pre-drilled holes are a bit off (and some are missing altogether), both of which result in slightly uneven edges when the product is assembled. In addition, several steps do not have pre-drilled hoes at all.

In addition, several steps require some creative problem solving. The drawers did not fit when I used the holes specified in the instructions. I had to use different holes on the metal tracks, which kind of fixed the problem (the drawers fit under the bed now but they do not slide in/out smoothly at all.

I have assembled my fair share of this kind of furniture and can honestly say that the instructions for this bed were by far the most (unnecessarily) confusing I have ever encountered. If you purchase this bed, do yourself a favor and really examine the pictures for each step closely. I was fortunate enough to be able to avoid most of the possible mistakes but be careful:
there are little, barely noticeable, details in each step that can make a huge difference in whether or not the project goes smoothly (whether it's using a piece of hardware that looks 99% like another piece or using holes in the wood that are just slightly different on one side of the piece than on the other).

Good luck!

Pros: Great price for what you get; looks pretty nice once it's together; ships/arrives very fast
Cons: Assembly is unnecessarily difficult/confusing; MAKE SURE YOU CAN CARRY HEAVY things into your home/apartment/up stairs: comes in two, 100lb, boxes

Questions & Answers

Q. "Hello, why is the width of the bed 80" but the headboard is only 64" when in the picture it shows the headboard covers all the bed's width?" — Peter
A. "Hi Peter, when talking about bed width (not the headboard, just the mattress & frames) the width of a bed is actually the length. Therefore, the actual width is 61.75", and the width of the headboard is 64.3125". The headboard actually sticks out approximately 1.5" on each side. I hope this helps answer your questions."
