[Review] GreenForest Metal Frame Platform Bed
We got this bed frame for my son’s bedroom. He’s getting too big for his old bed (how fast kids grow up!), and a simple twin frame seemed like the best choice. I did check out frames sold in stores too. In the end, I decided on this GreenForest bed frame because of the positive reviews and the price. Because of the price, I had some apprehensions on the look of the bed frame. I was worried that it would look cheap. I was pleasantly surprised to see that it is simple yet beautiful.
I didn’t have a hard time with the assembly. It is not exactly easy, but I managed. The directions could have been written more clearly. It is a good thing that there were illustrations to refer to when the instructions aren’t that clear.
The bed frame looks great in my son’s bedroom. It leaves him plenty of space in his room to move around and play.
What I Like
This bed frame doesn’t require a box spring. You can use one, though. The slats are only a few inches apart, so you can lay the mattress right on top of it. I have read reviews saying that they can feel the slats underneath the mattress. My son doesn’t. I think it depends on the thickness of the mattress you’re using. Nevertheless, a piece of cardboard under the mattress can do the trick.
I love that there is a clearance underneath the bed. You can store toys and other things you don’t usually use under it. The bed sits high enough off the ground so it’s not that hard to get in or out of bed.
The metal bed frame is sturdy. It can be used by kids and adults alike. The materials used are not the flimsy kind. As long as you assemble it well, you shouldn’t have any problem. Stability is not an issue unless if you jump on it. I can’t guarantee how it would hold up to jumping. We’ve had it for 7 months now, and it has held up pretty well. It doesn’t wobble either.
The bed doesn’t make any sound. Even if you move on the bed, it doesn’t make creaking or squeaking sounds. This is a big deal for me because my son freaks out when he hear strange sounds in the dark.
What I Don’t Like
What this bed frame is lacking is a way to keep the mattress from slipping around. I had to get creative when my son complained about the mattress moving around. I got Velcro strips, which worked perfectly to solve the problem.
I highly recommend this bed frame for people who are living on a tight budget. It is not a fancy-looking bed, but it can give you a good night sleep. I think as far as bed frames go, all you really need is one that is durable and conducive for sleeping. It is well worth the price. You may not be able to find a similar bed at a lower price. It’s a very good deal! – Jessica C
