Customer Questions

Is there any assembly required?

Will this bed be delivered fully assembled? If yes, can it be taken apart to transport? It cannot be delivered to our beach house so I have to deliver it to our main residence.
Asked by: Annie
We picked up our bed as we were outside of the delivery area. We did have to assemble it. I would guess it took about 30 minutes. It was relatively easy, but both my husband & I worked on it together. I don't think it's a one person job.

Can I put a box spring and mattress on this frame?

Or can I adjust the slats to make the mattress taller?
Asked by: amas2337
I would not recommend putting a box frame on this bed. It's not needed so the slats aren't adjustable and if you put a box frame, it'll stick out and you'll see it. I was told in the store that they sell a small/thinner box frame type thing to go along with this bed in case you have a thin mattress or a memory foam thats thin. I imagine its the right size so it doesn't stick out and then you can have your mattress taller. I guess it'll have your mattress lay right where the frame is. Because I have a traditional spring mattress with a topper on top of it, they didn't recommend the box spring thing. Hope that helps!

Is it solid wood or laminate?

Is the back board and legs laminate? Does it scratch easy? thanks
Asked by: Freddy
This frame is really heavy which leads me to believe it’s made of solid wood. When I think of laminated wood, I think of ikea quality which this definitely is not

What are the exact dimensions of the queen mattress that would fit exactly into the bed frame?

What are the dimensions of the inside of the frame where the mattress would fit? One reviewer noted that there was a 5 inch discrepancy between their queen mattress and the space within the bed frame for it.
Asked by: FABulou5
It's a terrible queen sized frame. At 63", It's 5" too wide for most queen mattresses, which is 60" standard for high end mattresses with cushioning. The Alton is also 85.5" long, which is 5.5" longer than a standard queen mattress. It doesn't make sense on why Living Spaces made a queen sized bed, that's not queen sized. There's no queen mattress that's going to fit this frame, which is too bad, because it's a good looking frame, but if your mattress has massive gaps everywhere it's useless. DON'T BUY this frame! 63"W x 85.5"D x 46.8"H

What are the dimensions of the box the bed ships in? I'd like to pick it up in store but am not sure it will fit my car.

Asked by: Nihaopizza
I'm not totally sure of the dimensions, but it actually comes in 3 boxes. We took my husbands full size pickup, and it totally filled up the back of the truck. If you just have a car, I'm thinking it's not likely to fit.

How many slats are on the queen Alton?

Is a bunky board suggested?
Asked by: MDugganCA
Didn't count them, but there are lots of slats. No need to place a board on top for support. We have a foam mattress on it and it is great.

does this bed need box spring?

Asked by: andyyao
Nope! It has slats that act as mattress support.

How far apart are the slats?

Looking to use this for a memory foam.
Asked by: jonizzle
Slats look about 2-2.5" apart. I purchased a bunky board in which was placed on top of the slats to support my foam mattress. That'll prevent uneven wear on your mattress. (Note, it does make the bed pretty high and mattress doesn't sit in the frame.

how big is the box if picked up in store?

Asked by: keek
You get like 4 different boxes. They fit in a minivan if you push in the passenger seats all the way.

Why does the frame weigh so much?

It seems this frame weighs quite a lot at 253 lbs. The comparable frame at West Elm is only 170 lbs. I have also looked at similar frames at other places and they don't come in anywhere near 250+ lbs. What makes this frame so much heavier/so heavy? Its weight has me reconsidering purchasing it.
Asked by: BayArea
Most likely because of the headboard. It comes in different boxes so 2 adults should be fine as to carrying it. My wife and I did so to our bedroom from the garage

Customer Reviews
KIT-ALTON CHERRY QUEEN PLATFORM BED is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 396.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This bed broke after 1 year The bed slats are GARBAGE on this bed. The middle support broke after 1 year of use (maybe sooner, I just didn't notice until around 1 year). I've still kept it 1.5 years after it broke as an attempt to make my $500 (with taxes/shipping) purchase last longer. See other pics for how the middle beams break. THEY WILL BREAK. Just give it time. I tried literally everything. I bought metal middle supports on Amazon-- they were too short to reach the ground but "kind of" worked enough to feel like I could sleep, but could not roll over without feeling my mattress sag. I ended up throwing out the slats and trying to use a metal bed frame and box spring with the frame around it-- this didn't work because the frame isn't wide enough to accomodate another structure in the middle. My next step is to try to buy slats like Ikea's and figure out a stable middle support section. Going to devote a Saturday to it soon. Otherwise I have to buy a new bed after 2.5 years of owning it. Living Spaces, can you respond to the fact that this bed breaks for a majority of your customers?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from NOT A GOOD PURCHASE - Bed will not last! DO NOT BUY THIS BED! IT WILL NOT LAST!! The support beams of this bed does not last, after 1 year and 2 weeks of sleeping on it all three support beams (the bars that hold up the center of the bed) cracked, leaving the middle of the bed sagging. I am a pretty light person, there should be no reason why support beams would crack so soon after purchasing. The warrantee department was not able to do anything about the issue, as I called the warrantee department 2 weeks after the 1 year warrantee was up. DO NOT BUY THIS BED! IT WILL NOT LAST!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mid Century Modern Look at a great price! First I will address the bed: I have been sleeping on this bed for almost 14 days now. It looks great in my room. Is very sturdy and makes no noise with bed movements. There is a good amount of space under the bed for storage. My mattress fits the frame perfectly. The warm, rich color is gorgeous. I love it! Next, the customer service: I'll admit I was a little leary about buying this bed, given some of the reviews. I looked around for weeks before coming back to this bed. I purchased in store in less than 15 minutes. So easy! Bed came right on schedule. Unfortunately, I was not home when the bed was delivered and set up, and my partner did not notice a chip in the frame. But I did! I received an email for a review of the delivery that very night and told them I was very upset that my new bed had a chip (found it on the floor). The next day, I received a call from LS saying I could have a new bed delivered right away! I was impressed. That seems like great customer service to me! In the end, I decided that the hassle of having a new bed delivered far outweighed a chip that is only visible to me, because the linens cover it up. Moving sucks but Living Spaces does not, based on my interaction with them. I would purchase from them again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Bed Very glad I purchased this bed. Very trendy, but most of all comfortable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good Great frame. Looks amazing. Feels sturdy. Hoping this stays as good as when we first bought it. Seems like everyone does reviews 2 weeks after a big purchase and in 2 years its not as great. Fingers crossed on this one.
