1. The middle gap
2. The closeness and evenness of the top boards
So if you want to get an idea of those, take a look at the 2 customer images.
First of all, I wan to say that this platform bed is WAY better than any box springs set/frame you would get. Plain and simple. It's much sturdier, more convenient, and just looks better than any sort of box springs set.
Secondly, I want to tell you how sturdy this bed is. It's VERY sturdy. I'm a big guy (I weigh 230, and my wife is around 160), and there have been absolutely no stability issues with this bed. Our memory foam mattress is pretty heavy too (around 50 lbs).
Speaking of mattresses, I want to talk about that next. A lot of folks have said, "You can't just put a mattress on top of it." Well I'm telling you first hand, that's WRONG. You can't put a THIN mattress on top of it and expect not to feel the gaps, sure, but we have a 10-inch thick memory foam mattress (also bought on Amazon), and we put it DIRECTLY on top of this bed, put the sheets on, and it works just fine (amazingly, in fact). So if you have a good mattress, don't worry about the gaps.
The only complaint I have about this bed is that the design is sub par. The materials (hardwood) are fine, but the design is questionable. For one thing, they could have eliminated the middle gap entirely by making the boards in the middle longer. I understand that the bed was designed with the idea that 1 person sleeps on each side, but to me that's just limiting yourself (and worrying your customers).Read more ›
Short and sweet: high quality, great finish, perfect fight.
First thing I noticed was the screws screw into metal, not wood. Nice! The finish was very smooth and was ready for staining/sealing out of the box. I decided to finish it with Danish Oil for a natural finish. Looks fantastic. All holes lined up perfectly. All pieces fit together correctly, and everything is level. The quality for the price is A+. It does stand tall.....taller than my old metal frame/box spring/mattress combo. As a matter of fact, it is tall enough for me to easily climb under (6'0", 180lbs), but I like it that way. I was able to assemble it by myself in 30 minutes. TIP: use a box to hold up one end while you work on the opposite end.
The only thing I would warn others about is the gap in the middle is wider than shown in the picture. It didn't matter to me since I was laying down some plywood for a memory foam mattress, but I wanted to let others know.
I saw much cheaper (not to mention heavier) particle board platform beds locally in shops for $250+ and none matched the quality of this frame.
While I've been sleeping well enough, I can't imagine this setup is good for the mattress in the long term. I'll be going to Lowe's to try to get 2 thin sheets of wood to place over the slats (so that those 2 areas of the bed are even with the center of the bed).
Other than that, the product is attractive, simple to put together and feels solid. I just don't want anybody else to be surprised that a bed this high off the ground doesn't naturally facilitate a mattress only setup.
Regarding the center beams: Yes, they are higher than the slats by nearly exactly 3/16". It is NOT 3/8" or 1/2" like other reviews are saying. At 3/16" it CAN pose a problem with thinner futons but most likely you will not notice it.
Home Depot sells a 3/16" tempered pegboard material that is 48 inches by 96 inches. You can cut it into two panels at 24 inches by 78 inches each and you will be able to lay them over the slats for an even platform. The pegboard material is recommended for proper airflow.
At this price, I think it is not absurd to have to do a little DIY handiwork to get it perfect. Especially since the final product is excellent (unlike other cheap furniture where even after some DIY clamping and gluing and creativity, the final product leaves a lot to be desired).
Clearance under the bed is 11.75" leaving a lot of room to store stuff.
Highly recommended but beware the center beams MAY pose a problem and you may want to get some material to improve it.
