    Wow, same.

    Allow me to introduce you to, an affordable solution: The Zinus SmartBase Platform Bed Frame ($54.15+ on Amazon and Zinus, available in twin–California king).

    Why is it so wonderful and amazing you ask?

    Well first of all, the design replaces the need for a boxspring, so you gain over a foot of storage space underneath! Imagine all the things currently stuffed in your closet that now can be stuffed under your bed!

    Also, there are no tools required to assemble, and the frame comes in a conveniently compact box, so delivery and set up are a breeze! *Swoon*

    Ikea is shook!

    Plus, over 22,900+ people have reviewed this product, 20,000+ of which are FIVE STAR reviews!


    Any concerns over a squeaky or wobbly bed frame? Not to worry, because according to this reviewer it's "completely solid!"

    "I was worried that this thing would be squeaky or wobbly, but much to my amazement it's completely solid. I'm using it with a 13-inch queen mattress without any issues. It's so much better than laying it on the ground or having to go out and buy a box frame. The height of the frame is about the same as it would be if you were using a traditional frame plus box frame. It comes in two sections that are easily assembled by one person alone." —Pri

    Everyone is swearing off box frames and build-your-own furniture because this one requires ZERO tools and you can set it up in minutes!

    I will never use a box spring again. This was super easy to set up. No tools needed. It works great with my new memory foam mattress and I can see how it would work great with any mattress type!" —SirScout

    Worried about metal on your hardwood floors? They've got that covered too! Literally! The legs come with protective caps on them so they won't scratch your beautiful floors.


    "It took me 10 minutes to put this together, without looking at the instructions. The legs have protection on them to keep them from possibly scratching a wood floor." —Cecilia Fahrman

    But that's not all. A BuzzFeeder loves this bed frame too — and wrote a review to prove it:

    Jeff Barron

    "My brother Jimmy showed me this frame he found online and it has actually changed my life for the better. Let me just quickly give you the run down on why this frame is awesome: It’s cheap. I paid $69 for a full size frame. It’s super light and folds up for when you move. You can put it together in under five minutes. There are eight thumb screws and you can put it together without any tools. It’s high enough off the ground that you can store boxes underneath. IT DOESN’T SQUEAK! Restless sleepers and sex-havers rejoice! In the month and a half I’ve been sleeping on this frame, I can confirm: It doesn’t make a sound." –Jeff Barron

    I think it's safe to say you'll rest easy knowing you got yourself a great bed frame that thousands of others already love!

    Get it from Zinus or Amazon for $54.71+ (available in sizes twin–California king).

    There's nothing like a comfy bed after a long day!!!!
