When I first saw this frame I just wasn’t sure what to think of it. It was a box of metal and plastic brown parts with what looked like giant cocoa puffs sitting in the mix.
My co-worker and I were given an assignment to put it together and see what we think of it and decide if we want to keep selling it. The entire staff ended up pitching in and we had a blast. You can watch it here!
So, here’s an honest review of Knickerbockers Eventide bed frame:
Now, I already know your first question. Is it worth the $199 we sell it for on our website? Yes! And most websites, especially big box stores, are charging up to $300 more and that excludes shipping. ( Sometimes i just wonder if their possessions are made of gold with all that extra money they suck out of people)
Here’s why: It has an extremely modern, aesthetically pleasing appearance. To me personally the legs do sort of look like giant cocoa puffs but I don’t think that’s a bad thing. Trust me when I say it’s a great conversation piece. This is what the wheel looks like:
It fits all sizes! You can put it in a guest bed where bed sizing may change from time to time, or buy it for your son/daughter and adjust it as they grow.
It’s sturdy! It’s great for heavier weight limits.
It’s so easy to move! This is great for people who re-arrange a lot or people who like to get under the bed area for cleaning. In the video we were able to move the entire frame with a mattress set (and one of co-workers) with a simple glide. Don’t worry, we also sell floor grippers so it doesn’t slide everywhere all of the time just willy nilly.
Since this is an honest review here are the cons: It was a little difficult to snap the plastic encasement on to the frame. We all gave it a good go, struggled quite a few minutes and then finally one of our male co-workers snapped it on. It takes a pretty firm hand.
It would be kind of difficult to put together completely on your own. I’m not by any means saying it’s impossible, but you may get frustrated and walk away a few times.
It’s very easily slid-able. Which is great for the movers and cleaners but for a child or the elderly it may not be so great. Again you can get the gripping cups but children jump around and the elderly tend to push all of their weight on the bed sometimes when trying to get in.
I hope this review helps you make a decision! If you’re looking for an even more sturdy and easy to assemble frame try the Embrace! It’s amazing!! If i’m honest, I like it a little better but the Eventide is still awesome!
