This frame is supported by wooden slats which are very strong and durable. The frame has purposely been made to be 1 inch short in length and width to prevent you from hitting your shin or toes against it. The diamond stitching on the headboard gives a nice classic look to it.
How long will it take me to install?
Some have said that it only took them about 30-45 mins to assemble the whole frame together, which I think is very impressive. Everything you need in order to assemble this frame is located in a zippered compartment on the back of the headboard. An Allen wrench is included as well.
Is a box spring needed?
You do not need a box spring. The wooden slats are enough to support your mattress.
