When I redecorated my bedroom, i picked everything in lacquered, light wood and whites. I would have liked a wooden bed, but I have a cat, so I had to go for a metal frame or he would have used it as an additional scratch post. I'm telling you this so that you'll realise that when I bought it, this frame was kind of a "plan b", the choice I HAD to make due to my pet, rather than something I truly liked. However, once it was delivered, my attitude towards it quickly changed. It's a very solid frame, no wiggling, no squeaking, no defects of any kind and I paid for assembly so it was also solidly put together. It was one of the cheaper frames, so I re-invested the saving into buying good sprung slats (an add-on that I would advise you to get if you can afford the extra cost) and a truly exceptional mattress. This combination has outperformed all my expectations, I have the best bed I've ever had in my life. I am so glad that I decided to pop into Dreams to see what they offered, as otherwise I would have had to buy everything online, without trying it, and I doubt that I would have achieved the same results. I didn't give it a perfect score because the feet are simply raw steel (painted, obviously), without any feature that would prevent scratching your wood/laminate floor when the bed inevitably needs to be moved. however I obviously solved that problem by buying some large felt pads, which fit it perfectly. So, it's a handsome frame, it's sturdy, solid yet cheap, so as long as you like the design and colour, choosing it is a no-brainer.
