Platform Beds

[Review] Zinus Upholstered Diamond Stitched Platform Bed


The Zinus platform bed arrived in a flat but heavy box. Just as advertised, everything is inside the zippered compartment of the headboard. It still came as a surprise for me because I couldn’t believe that they all fitted inside. The assembly was generally smooth-sailing. You will only need an Allen wrench to bolt in a few screws. I can imagine that you can take the bed apart and then get everything back inside the compartment. This is easier to transport than, say, a bunch of large parts that are scattered around. This is pretty convenient if you’re moving out.

We got this platform bed for my daughter. We didn’t get a new twin mattress with it. It was such a relief that her mattress fit perfectly on top of the platform. She is using a standard twin-sized bed. You shouldn’t have any trouble as long as you get the correct size for the frame.


The platform bed makes use of a steel frame. That makes it sturdy and likely to last a long time. There is an extra leg in the center. While it does look strange, it adds to the stability of the entire thing.

The headboard, footboard, and sides are all upholstered. My daughter particularly liked this because she has always wanted a bed with a soft headboard. This is so she has something to lean back on when she’s using her laptop in bed. The textile feels soft to the touch. It doesn’t look and feel cheap at all.

The wooden slats come pre-attached to each other. They have Velcro strips at the ends so you can attach them to the frame. The Velcro holds the slats in place. The slats are quite close to each other, giving the mattress the support that it needs. The space allows your mattress to breathe, which isn’t possible if you are using a box spring.


My daughter was the one who found this on Amazon. I must say that she has such great taste. The diamond pattern on the headboard looks modern and elegant. The buttons and tufting details complete the whole look. The grey, on the other hand, is a beautiful charcoal shade. It stands out against my daughter’s white-walled room. As the bed is in a neutral shade, it would fit in with any furniture that you have in your bedroom.

My daughter’s mattress is 10 inches high, making her bed high off the ground. It’s not too high off, though. It’s just the right height that allows her to get in and out of the bed without difficulty.

The only complaint I can think of is that there isn’t a significant clearance underneath. Keeping your luggage under the bed is out of the question. The clearance is just roughly seven inches, which is not a lot of space.

Last Thoughts

If you are looking for a stylish yet durable bed frame then this should make a great choice. This is also less expensive than a lot of frames of the same size and design. Finally, the bed also comes with a 5-year warranty. That should well convince you to go ahead with the purchase.
