Nixson Metal Bed Frame


What Makes The Nixson Metal Bed Frame Great?

So after having this bed for a while I'd say I'm happy with it. But its not perfect. So first things first. It was easy to put together. And with the mattress I have makes it a comfy bed. Now the bad so their are two issues I have with this bed. One is that the big plain bit at the top and bottom boards are made of very thin sheet metal and not wood like I believed from viewing the site. And they are poorly spot welded on. Because of this it is nosiy if you happen to apply a small amount of pressure to the head board. And has woken me us. But I'm sure I'll get used to it or I'll weld a thicker peace behind it to reinforce it. And to the Chilly. As this is a metal bed frame it dose get cold which has given me a giggle from time to time. Anyways I Would suggest bed it's good and steady and dose what A bed should. I just think with a by replacing the metal sheet. With so hard wood would turn. This bed be from a good bed to a perfect bed in my eyes.

Customer Reviews For The Nixson Metal Bed Frame

Based on 63 review

Looks fantastic!

I bought this bed frame about 6 weeks ago, to go in my newly decorated bedroom and it looks fantastic. It's got a bit of a steampunk / industrial look which works well with the decor. Assembly was pretty straightforward - no issues encountered, and it feels pretty sturdy - no creaks or squeaks! Delivery was great - good communication from the delivery crew. They arrived in their time slot, were friendly and looked professional. Online purchase was very easy and trouble free. Good communication from Dreams throughout. No hesitation in recommending this product, or making a purchase from Dreams.


Looks great but watch measurements..

Really pleased with the frame, it looks good and the lower end makes our small room look bigger however if you are tight for space add a couple of centimetres to the measurements given. We needed to fit a frame between built in furniture and were very careful in our measurements. This should have given us 3cm leeway but when the frame arrived it was slightly too big for the space & we had to grind away a few millimetres from the widest part to get it to fit. (OK when you have a grinder in the garage and an engineer husband but could present big issues for anyone who doesn't.)


Fantastic quality and easy to assemble

I bought this best roughly 3 weeks ago. Fanatic quality and quick delivery. Arrived in three large boxes, awkward to move but not heavy. Very very solid frame and love the colour as it is a faux distressed, industrial style. The slats are solid and very strong compared with the flat pack rubbish I was replacing and the bolts tighten well, which sometimes metal beds struggle with. Doesn't creak or crack when all settled and the right length and size for me (6ft). Very impressed with the service and quality, so naturally would recommend.


Looks great but not all great quality

I brought this bed and it looks amazing in my room and I’m happy with it. But the slats on the bed aren’t as good quality as the rest of the bed and on the headboard, the metal sort of sheet behind the pillows is very flimsy and is easy to pop through, it does always pop back out but it moves if you touch it with your hand. The rest of the bed is good quality just a shame it’s not all good quality. The bed is easy to put together as I didn’t add assembly to my order as I could do it myself, delivery guys were lovely and chatty.


Lovely Bed

Purchased this bed for our daughter's bedroom, for when she comes home to visit. Overall the bed is beautiful and adds a touch of retro elegance to the room with it's dark brassy colours. The only thing I wasn't happy with was the tiny piece of wood acting as a support bar. The reason I wasn't happy with this was due to buying my ned from the Cotswolds company (Solid Oak) cheaper than this bed and having a very solid full length metal supporting beam. So would have expected a more substantial supporting beam for the price.


So far, so good

I bought the NIxson King bed frame a few weeks ago, and am very pleased so far. The frame is sturdy (it was assembled for me) and feels very solid. The photos from the website were accurate, and I'm really pleased with the look. The only (minor) criticism is that the wooden slats are visible even with the king mattress, and given the high standard of the appearance of the frame, it's a shame that the ends of the slats couldn't have been disguised a bit better. But this is a minor complaint and I would recommend the frame.


Really well made.

I bought this bed about a month ago and I am really pleased with it. The good quality instructions meant it was easy to put up and it feels solid. It doesn’t squeak at all and really goes with the industrial look that I like. It is all metal, just in case you though the head and foot board were wood (as I did) but the texture of the design meant it’s really easy to add wood accessories in the room and it will still match. Delivery was also really fast and bang on time.


Great looks and sleeps well

We bought the bed mainly for the industrial looks it has, and it has been a great find for us since. The overall build quality is very good and fitting it together was relatively easy too. We did have some hiccup when fitting the slates on the side rails as the holes were misaligned, but managed to get the screws in by adjusting the slates slightly. It would've been good to know whether to expect some misalignment vs exact fit.


Absolutely stunning!

I bought this bed after looking at it constantly when I moved into my new flat. It’s my ideal aesthetic and I knew I wanted it so I went for it. It was SO easy to build. Took about 15 mins with 2 of us but reckon one person could build it. It’s so sturdy and comfortable and I would recommend it to anyone, best piece of furniture I’ve ever owned. Absolutely gorgeous!


Fantastic bed

Bought this bed a few months ago online for my new bedroom so very happy I did. It's a very well made bed the sprung slats are fantastic very stable strong no creeks or squeaks. The colour and finish are lovely fits perfectly with my furniture and colour scheme. Would definitely recommend this bedframe and excellent customer service from the Dreams team.


Good but don't be fooled

Basically we like this bed, its comfy its solid, it was easy to assemble etc. Just one caveat from the pictures both me and my wife were convinced that the panels in the head and the foot were wood and they're not. They are metal which is a bit cold and makes some noise occasionally. Looks fine and I'm sort of over it now but was initially disappointing.


Love The Frame

It's a solid frame. I've had a lot of creaky beds in the past, so I was concerned that a metal frame might be a bad idea. However, it's well constructed and with the right mattress provides excellent support and comfort. Looks great in my room. Recommend paying for the delivery and installation; the service was fast and reliable.


Brilliant bed!

Purchased for an 18 year olds newly redecorated room. Brilliant! Very funky design, nice sturdy and modern. Only draw-back were some issue experiences fitting the slats, not an easy task as not one of the pre-drilled holes matched up to those on the frame, if it wasn’t for that then I definitely would have given five stars.


Perfect for that industrial look

So I was borderline obsessed with creating a masculine, industrial feel to my new flat. This bed was nothing short of perfect in achieving that! It’s style and design are versatile enough that it’ll fit into any type of design I’ll look for in the future. It’s strong, it’s sturdy, it’s comfortable. Cannot recommend enough.


Vintage design

My Stepmother bought this for my Birthday earlier in the month. It's exactly what I wanted, a vintage design metal bed frame. The wooden slats are really comfy to sleep on. It was quick and easy to assemble. The colour of the frame is a beautiful antique bronze finish. Perfect for my bedroom


Lovely comfortable sprung bed

I bought this bed recently as I wanted a sprung frame and I am so happy that I did! Delivery was fast (even though we were in lockdown) and assembly was very straightforward. The finished product is easily one of the comfiest beds I have ever slept on - it definitely gets five stars from me!


Just the job!

I purchased this bed at the end very end of 2019, and it was delivered super-quick just into Jan 2020. Easy to assembly, and looks just like the picture (some previous reviews say that in real life it is darker metal, but I personally think the picture online is accurate) - Very happy!


Struck gold!

I chose this bed because it was a little different from the usual wooden/quilted headboard offerings. It was definitely the right choice! Looks really stylish, it's well built (and worth the extra to have it put together). It doesn't look out of place in a lady's boudoir! LOVE it.


Beautiful Industrial Bedframe

I bought this item a few weeks ago and I am absolutely in love with it. It looks so great in our bedroom, really fitting in with our industrial/ masculine theme! The bed is incredibly easy to put together aswell. Amazing quality. Every time I look at it, I fall in love every time!


Strong bed doesn't squeak

Usually you get cheap metal frames that buckle and move over time. Not this bed!! Had an excellent deal of their ebay advertisement. Assembly is easy with clear instructions. Comes with strong thick wooden slats. Looks very industrial. Most comfortable bed I've ever owned.


Excellent bed!

Bought this for our new house and its been excellent. Simple to assemble, cool to look at and comfy - at least when paired with our mattress! The only issue is if you hit the headboard it can make quite a loud "gong" noise, particularly if that person is wearing a ring!


Fantastic bed!!

I’m so glad I bought this bed frame, not only does it look great but it’s beautifully made and so comfortable. There are no squeaks as the slats are solid wood which are evenly placed and it’s high up from the floor enough to put things underneath.


Rustic Design, Great Quality!

I had the Nixson bed frame delivered a few weeks ago and straight away i was pleased with the purchase. The rustic/urban vintage design feel looks great and once built i find the frame very sturdy. It was also easy to build with clear instruction.


Lovely bed!

I bought this bed recently and I am very happy with my purchase. It was relatively easy to assemble and looks exactly as pictured. Some metal beds look very molded and as a result quite cheap but this one does not.


Looks very vintage/industrial

Have just purchased this bed frame and mattress. Are very pleased with both products and the service was brilliant. They took away the old bed and mattress and assembled the new frame. Arrived on time.


Excellent build quality

I purchased this bed around a month ago and I have been very pleased with the build quality. I expected the bed to be quite noisy being a metal frame, however its silent and exceptional.
