The overall look is quite good. But the process of assembling is very cumbersome. Moreover the design of assembly of head board and tail board with the side frame is very bad and very unstable, The method of fixing, ie sliding and locking instead of firm tightening, of the frame is not desirable for such bed frames.Even the tightening of the bolts are very difficlult. Whatever way the the side frames are fixed the same can lift up and fall since the head of the bolt and size of the bolts are small and also not even a washer is used for tighteninh. There are two plastic supports are given and no way they can be used. Overall very poor design and construction for such a heavy frame

The bolts that attach the side frames are tightened with the included allen wrench after you slide them into position. It's a little tricky to do - you can only go 1/6th turn at a time - but the frame is rock solid after the bolts are tightened. It took me about 30 minutes to open the package and assemble the frame; most of that time was to tighten the bolts attaching in the side rails.

Where did you get one? It seems to be out of stock now in my area.

Hi, I was just wondering do you need a boxspring with this bed frame?

do you need a boxspring with this bed?



01/14/2013 07:06

no you don't

Can you put a box spring on this frame? Will it be too high and close to the headboard? Will it look horrible? I am curious sorry for all the questions but I need to know so I can cancel my box spring. Does this bed frame come with the wood pieces for support if not using a box spring? I bought the frame but it did not tell me to buy the wood, curious to know if it comes with the frame?

I have a box spring on my Svelvik. It looks good - this is the way it was displayed at the Ikea store, as well. You have to buy the slats separately if you want them. You don't need them with the box spring. Assembly was very, very difficult. It was hard to fit the Allen key into the little holes to tighten the bolts and very time consuming. But now that it's up, it looks really good.
