Customers who purchase a protection plan are covered for the above-mentioned damages as soon as their sofa is delivered.

This bed is usually delivered on time and arrives early. The bed’s various parts and hardware come well-packaged to prevent scratches or lost pieces during delivery. There may be a few imperfections in the paint, but they are usually minor. When comparing iron beds, if you choose the bronze version, please note that the color is a brown speckled coating made to appear bronzed, as pictures may show. There are really no golden or metallic tones to the bronze. This bed is not difficult to assemble, but it does take some time. You will be pleased with how many bolts there are in multiple places because it helps to make the bed very sturdy.

This bed requires a box spring, and with the queen size version, there is a little extra room between the headboard, the footboard, and your mattress, but none on the sides, which is a good thing. However, this is fine, because you need the space for your comforter to lay nicely at the bottom. The amount of space is not nearly as much extra space as some reviews and complaints may suggest for this or other similar iron beds. Usually, you’ll find that your mattress and box spring do not slide around. There is just a little give in the headboard if you lean against it. There is no need to worry about this because it is not much give at all and some movement is to be expected with an assembled headboard bed that isn’t one single piece.

There is no squeaking if everything is assembled properly and tightly, and the bed feels very solid getting on and off and with movement. If you need to have a bed against the windows, this is a great option, because the mattress is lower and the headboards rails block very little light.


Some people felt swindled and complained that the manufacturer or the advertisers got away with doing a poor job on this item. They complained that this bed is junk and that it is made of very thin metal which is kind of flimsy. Although it looks good, the metal rungs on the headboard do not go straight up and down. If you buy this bed, you may need to get the hardware needed for assembly from the local hardware store to get some real bolts as some of the bolts and screws that come with delivery don’t go in and strip out very easily.

One customer tried to put the bed together only to discover that all the rails were missing. They proceeded to contact customer service, but the service folks were unable to tell them why the second box never shipped, nor when the replacement box would be received. So in some cases, this bed may not turn out as advertised. If you buy twin bedding and a twin mattress, you will have about 5 inches between the footboard and where the actual bed starts. It’s a gap so wide that bedding does not stay in place, and it can actually pose a hazard for young children. You need a twin XL mattress and bedding for this bed, so be careful when ordering if you are picky about the size.


Overall, this is an excellent bed and is even better quality than what you might expect, given the price. Assembly is very quick and easy, and the frame is strong and stable. One small issue is that the headboard can be lifted out of the foot posts, but if you’re not moving your bed around, it’s not a problem. The length of the bed is also spot-on, and there is enough space to allow for your bed linens to hang nicely down the front. If you consider the price, weight, ease of assembly and transportation, and standard colors in solid construction, this bed makes an easy choice for a budget-friendly, contemporary, easy-to-use, and stylish home sleeping furniture piece. If you are not too picky about precise measurements and weight limits, this bed would be great for you.

All in all, this bed is a nice color, can be used in a guest bedroom or your main sleeping quarters, and it is very comfortable as well. The 4.7 rating on a 5-star scale is certainly earned, and this is a furniture item that you will be able to use for a long, long time.
