Everyone’s looking for a platform bed with a strong support system, and who wouldn’t? We don’t want to waste our hard earned money with something that will disappoint us, right? That’s why we are here to scrutinize this Zinus Dachelle Upholstered Button Tufted Premium Platform Bed.
We’ve heard a lot of good things about this bed, so we decided to see it for ourselves.
Let’s start with its Steel Frame.
Under the attractive design of this bed is a more than enough support system. What does it mean? Well, it means you’ll find a skeleton of thick steel tubes underneath. We don’t think the steel they used will bend easily like other frames we’ve seen from other products. The thickness and solidity of the metal will impress you, and that’s for sure.
By the way, the steel is almost an inch thick.
Another good thing about the frame is, there are lots of metal feet attached to it. You’ll find three in the middle or center support, and three on each side. Now, do you still think it will fail to carry you in the middle of the night?
The thing about this frame is, you’ll only see the full-length bar of the steel in the middle—one long vertical and one horizontal crossed together. Basically, it looks like a plus sign with the vertical steel longer, of course.
Now, where is the side support? If it’s not in full length, then how will it support the whole bed?
There is side support. But yes, it’s not in full length. More of cut in two parts because they attached it on its side rails. Well, no need to worry though because even though they cut it in half, they still made sure that the part where you’ll hook it is as strong as the steel on the frame.
Slats and Spaces Between
First, what we have is the queen-sized bed.
After the frame, the next thing you’ll see are the slats. We received 14 slats for the size we have. We’re not sure if you’ll also receive the same number of slats for other sizes. Well, it could be lesser for small sizes, and more than for the bigger size.
We like how thick the slats are. Each slat measures 2.84 inches wide. It’s almost 3 inches, right? It might be easy to break if you’ll do it individually, but when it’s attached to the frame, it feels strong and reliable. We even tried to sit and stand on it without the mattress, and we didn’t experience even a little crack. That’s how strong it is when it sits on the frame.
As for space, the space between the slats is over 2 inches. That’s a surprising distance between them. Well, the tighter the space is, the stronger the support system becomes. And as we all know, most memory foams require a distance of lesser than 3 inches, right? So, it seems Zinus comply with this requirement.
Fabric and Upholstery
Zinus Dachelle Upholstered Button Tufted Premium Platform Bed used knitted polyester fabric to wrap the headboard and rails for a better look.
You can choose between dark grey and grey sand for the color. By the way, both colors look good on this piece. We also had our difficulty in choosing the color to purchase.
We agree with the name they had given this bed, “Premium Platform Bed” because it really looks so premium. The way they sew the fabric is very clean—no loose threads, no uneven portion, and no missing buttons. Well, this piece is over $200.00, so maybe it’s okay to expect something equivalent to what we paid, right?
Honestly, this bed frame is just so awesome, and we know we get what we paid for.
The first job of the headboard is to hide all the things included in the package. You’ll see the zipped compartment at its back. You can use it again when you move to a new house, so you won’t lose the parts of this bed frame.
Aside from being storage, it also serves as a foundation for the frame. How? By attaching the vertical steel bar and side rails to this piece. It seems like it’s not only meant for decoration, right? It also has something to do with stabilizing the whole bed.
Do you like the button-tufted pattern on this headboard? Well, it provides elegance on this item, right? It makes it look so expensive, which means more than what we paid for.
You’ll also love the pads behind the fabric. It’s not that thick though, but enough to support and comfort you while you lean on it.
Dimensions and Sizes
First, let’s talk about the overall dimension.
For this queen-sized bed, the dimension is 80.5″ L x 62.4″ W x 43″ H. You might ask, the footboard only measures 60 inches, then why does it have 62.4 inches wide. Well, this 62.4 inches comes from the headboard, which means it is 2.4 inches wider than the footboard (1.2 inches on the left side and 1.2 inches on the right side).
The slats are 13.8 inches above the floor, while the bottom of the rails/footboard/headboard is 6.3 inches. We find the height enough for us. Well, we hope it is for you, too.
The headboard is 43 inches from the floor and 29.2 inches from the top of the slats. Which means, if you’ll place an 8-inch foam, you’ll still get a 20-inch headboard height. This height is still enough to accommodate your back when you lean on it, which is nice.
- Twin: 75.5″L x 40.5″W x 40″H
- Full: 75.5″L x 56.2″W x 43″H
- King: 80.5″L x 78.3″W x 38.2″H
Foam Padded Tapes
Zinus focused not only on the looks and support system of this Zinus Dachelle Upholstered Button Tufted Premium Platform Bed. They also paid attention to how they’ll control the noise of the bed for your movement when you sleep at night.
They made a great job by adding foam padded tapes because you won’t really hear unnecessary noise when you make movements while lying on your mattress.
We like how easy the assembly is. It only took us an hour in which we think it’s already a long time for assembling this one.
Since they already included everything in the package, all you have to do is connect each part by using their tool.
Assembling this bed frame won’t overwhelm you even though it has a lot of parts. There are no heavy parts, so you can even do it by yourself.
You’ll get a 5-year limited warranty upon purchase. Well, we’re already satisfied with how sturdy this Platform Bed is, so getting a 5-year limited warranty is more of a bonus, right?
