Customer Reviews For The Ruskin Metal Bed Frame

Based on 86 review

Hard to self-assemble, some bolts wont go in

The bed looks great, but here are my issues with it: 1) packaging is done in such a way that if you start cutting the tightly tied plasic wires holding the protective packaging and frame together you will end up scratching the paint off the frame; 2) it is very hard to assemble on your own, despite what customer service chat person might tell you - you ll need to balance very heavy frame parts in order to get the bolts in the right holes. It took me 2 hours if not longer to put everything together and still 3) one of the grooves where a bolt is supposed to go in was defective and the bolt only went half way and now has its threading dmagaed from all the effort applied to try and screw it in. Not sure therefore how securly built this bed will prove to be


Good quality and stylish

Bed arrived quickly and well-packaged by a couple of nice chaps. The bed itself is just how it looks on the website - goes together easily enough. There's nothing particularly that screams super-high quality but it doesn't feel like it's going to break or tarnish either. The frame is more brown than I could tell from the photos but it's not a problem for me (just, if you were expecting black - it's not). The underside requires a central support so take that into account if you're planning to store things underneath.


Ruskin Bed Frame

I bought this a few months ago. I love the design and how easy it was to assemble. At first, I booked the service to assemble it. They were really nice and polite. I moved to a new flat and had to disassemble and then reassemble it on my own. With the stock I got, I noticed that the workmanship was not as smooth. There was a sharp edge and the headboard didn’t feel as sturdy as you’d hope especially when you lean pillows on it to read in bed. Overall I am still happy with my purchase and would recommend.


Very comfortable for a reasonable price

I received this bed several weeks ago now & I’m pretty happy with it. As I live alone it was a struggle to put together - but if I had an extra set of hands it really would have been a breeze as everything was well labelled and pretty logical to assemble. In terms of comfort, I love it - the frame provides more support than I would have expected as there is only one supporting leg in the centre of the bed. My only issue is that as the bed is metal, it can be a bit squeaky when getting in or out.


Sleeping soundly!

I bought a bedframe but there were issues so I cancelled my order. I then found our Dreams bedframe and we’re delighted with it! The sprung slats are so comfortable and the mesh styling really suits what is a multipurpose room as it’s less obvious than a solid wood frame. I read the reviews before purchase and the main complaint was that people would have preferred a black colour whereas this is a dark brown. This wasn’t an issue for me and I’m so glad it didn’t sway me at the time.


Strong & straightforward

I bought this for my 16yr old daughter after her last bed broke. I was looking for a reasonably priced, strong & sturdy bed frame that was able to stand up to a clumsy teenager as well as looking smart. This bed frame fit the bill perfectly. We ordered the version with sprung slats and found the whole thing very easy to put together with two people & the end result felt sturdy and as though it would last. Both I am my daughter are very happy with it.


Great colour, great quality and easy to build!

Bought this bed when I moved into my room house, my partner and I looked for ages and she stumbled across this one. I must say it was a great choice - with some beds you get naff wooden planks that break after a few months, these slats are built to last! The frame is also sturdy and because of its material, it's really easy to move around the room when you feel like a change. Highly recommend this product! Thanks guys!


Love the style

Looks great and very easy to assemble. Goes great in my room with a couple of industrial style bedside lamps. Slats feel good quality so hopefully they'll last a while. Only thing that stopped me putting 5 stars is that I wish that the site had the precise measurements for the bottom end piece as it was a little taller than I'd hoped so I had to get a new tv stand so the bar didn't block at a chuck of my tv.


Re assemble wardrobe

Good solid bed, what i love most is how easy the floor is to lay out. The metallic look gives a nice industrial feel to the room. Was easy to assemble seeing that i did it alone, all you need is something to hold the other end so its level, then you can fasten the bolts together. Its light enough to carry, making it easy for house moves. love that i can see under the bed as well.


Great service with a fab product!

Fantastic initial contact with dreams, needing to change the delivery date, time and address. Very easy and really good service from team. The delivery was very informative, with a specific time and great tracking. Delivery men carried up to top floor of the flat and were lovely. The product was very quick and easy to assemble. Bed Is brilliant, robust and looks great. Comfy too


Robust, stylish and doesn't squeak

Bought this a couple of weeks ago and I am very pleased with the bed frame. Easy enough to assemble, seems to be very robust and doesn't squeak as you move in it. Looks decent too. Only issue I had with it was that not enough washers were supplied to construct as per the instructions. I have it with a Simba mattress and it is very comfortable to sleep in. Would recommend.


Easy to assemble and comfy

I bought this bed about a month ago and decided not to pay for assembly. The bed was really easy to put together and looks so good. When I've had people over to view my new flat, I've had many compliments on the industrial style bed. As said in other reviews the colour is actually brown not black but it looks great. Can't fault it. Highly recommend!



I am so glad I came to Dreams for my bed and mattress. Just what I wanted, easy to assemble (my brother said) and looks great. Saying that, a few words for the delivery guys- absolutely 100% perfect. Bought the bed and mattress into my bedroom no problem. Your customer service second to none. Thanks for the pillows. Nice surprise.


Industrial chic

Absolutely love my new bed. Was really easy to assemble, looks fab... very on trend. Guys who did the delivery were very polite, called 10 minutes before they arrived. Asked which room I would the bed putting in and even took there shoes off before coming in to the house! Would highly recommend dreams to my friends and family


Amazing bed!

I bought this bed a month ago and we are more than happy with it. It's great as it is quite high and very stable. It doesn't make any noise and looks really nice - industrial style. Very good quality. Delivery was amazing, they were very punctual and delivered it straight to our bedroom. I definitely recommend this bed.


Absolutely in love with this frame

Would highly recommend this. I've had it for a month and have no complaints! Makes no noise whatsoever! I paid for assembly and the guys had it up in 15 minutes and can't complain! I opted for the sprung slats and so glad I did - comfortable is an understatement! The colour is dark brown/almost black and I love it!


stylish and solid

We have been sleeping on the bed for 5 weeks now. It assembled quite easily and the quality of material and finish is excellent. We purchased the option of the sprung base and I would recommend this. The difference from our old bed frame with wooden slats is quite noticeable and it's more comfortable.


Perfect bed for me.

I purchased this bed over a month ago, and have loved it everyday since. It has a strong sturdy build to it, and is easy to build with 2 people! We have installed light's behind the headboard which gives it a more comfortable setting at night, and has plenty of storage for bits and bobs underneath.


Great looking bed

For the money, this is a fantastic bed for those looking for an industrial style frame. My only negative is that the images make the bed look more black, but it is most definitely a dark brown. I appreciate the description says “dark brown” but I was almost hoping it was darker than it actually is!


On trend industrial frame

Looks very good in an industrial modern themed room. It’s. A dark brown rather than black but looks good. We had a damaged headboard on delivery but was quickly replaced. Good deal on damage insurance which is reassuring, the mesh might not be the most stable but still looks good.



This product is exactly as advertised and what we wanted! It is very good quality and I can already tell this is a bed that is going to last for a while! It was delivered and placed in the room of my choice. It was very easy to build matches the bedroom perfectly! Thanks Dreams.


Stylish and simple, industrial chic

Bought this a few weeks ago for our spare bedroom and it looks fantastic. Goes with any decor, good height for under-bed storage. Only gripe is there was an extra piece of metal sticking out of the headboard - but easily removed with pliers. Looks great with simple bed linen.


Love it

I’ve had this in my master bedroom for around 3 weeks now. It’s really sturdy and looks great. The headboard isn’t very high though so if you have a really thick mattress it might ruin the look. Good height from the floor so plenty of room for storage. Great value for money.


Would happily recommend Dreams.

Very pleased with the bed. Well made and easy to assemble. Initial delivery date was not possible but Dreams notified me in plenty of time and kept me informed of revised date right up to the point they knocked on the door. Very pleased with the whole experience. Thanks.


Style and ease

Assembly was incredibly easy and took 30 mins. The aesthetic of the bed is great and fits brilliantly with similar styles. The headboard is my only gripe, feels weak when pressure is put on it although it hasn’t broken. Overall a great bed, just be aware of headboard


Great Bed!

Been sleeping in this bed for just over a month now. It is sturdy, looks classy and more importantly not squeeky. I know some metal beds have a tendency to make a lot of noise but this one is fantastic. Goes really well with the decor in my room. I love it.


A beautiful sturdy bed

It’s a nice looking bed that really makes an impact in the appearance of the room. It is sturdy and doesn’t make the usual creaky sound you expect from a metal bed. Only reason to take out a star is how weak the headboard seems to be, I would lean on it.


Super modern but classic

We’ve had this bed for around a month, it’s been brilliant and it has transformed our bedroom into our favourite room in the house. It’s modern but gives all the classic touches we were after. Thanks Dreams, it’s great!


Great style, noise free bed!

Love the industrial look of this bed, really easy to assemble. After a year of sleeping in the worlds squeakiest bed I was looking for something that made no noise- this is perfect. Good height to get stuff under also.


Decent Bed

Looks good and well made. My only concern is the. Metal grill on the headboard flexes easily so not sure how durable that'll be long term, it's fine at the moment. Also delivery took 3 months, which was annoying.


Great looking bed

The bed is really simple to put together. Looks great in situ. One concern is the headboard mesh creeks as the pillow moves against it in the night, where it has movement in it. Currently disturbing sleep.


Looks fab

This bed frame looks just like it does in the picture. The dark brown colour is really nice, less harsh than black. It was straightforward to assemble, took about 1-1.5 hours. I love how it looks!


Great bed!

Brilliant bed, perfect for what I wanted and much cheaper than many other industrial styles. Easy to put together, very sturdy and a good size- not too bulky for a king. Highly recommended.


Great Bed

Amazing bed, metal frame industrial look which is perfect for my room. Its well made and then well built as i did put it together myself. It also makes no noise, even when activities occur


Great style and quality

Bought this bed online and it proved to be every bit as stylish as the images online. Great quality and simple to assemble. Used with the Morris traditional spring mattress. Super comfy!


Great solid frame

Purchased a month or so ago, great solid frame, no squeaks and doesn't wobble. Fairly easy to assemble. I thought it was black but it’s a very dark brown but it still fits in nicely.


Great bed set the room

Great bed, it set the room really well. I hope it will last 8 years like my last dreams bed. Only bad thing I would say, it was delivered hour and half early than scheduled.


Industrial Trend

This bed sits nicely with the industrial trend which is very popular at the moment. The mesh headboard and foot-board are a lovely feature and complete the look of the bed.
