Zinus Bed Frame

The Zinus platform bed may be inexpensive, but it is most certainly not a “cheap” product. Made from a steel frame and wooden slats, this foundation is able to provide a good level of support to virtually any size mattress. Additionally, the foundation’s assembly process is virtually painless.

The Zinus bed frames are quality products at an affordable budget. Look for these features when you are shopping to get the right frame for your bed.


Everyone loves simple, utilitarian frames because they assemble easily and look good in most bedroom settings. But, it’s a plus if the frame comes with some kind of design – like textured materials, upholstery, or headboard.

Zinus has all types in their inventory, be it simple frames or featuring attached headboard or footboard. Certain wood finish or fabric upholstery is also not rare but costs a little bit extra.

The bed frames come in all standard sizes – Twin, Full, Queen, King, and California King – from as low as 5 inches to as high as 18 inches. The twin size has the perfect elevation for children to climb onto comfortably.

At the time of assembly, all Zinus bed frames guarantee taking out the frustrated outbursts from the equation. You just have to match the corresponding frame parts and then lay the slats on top of the frame. Some models don’t even require assembling the slats.


The support is important because it determines the quality and gives an idea of how well the frame can hold up over time. Not all frames can provide strong body support, resulting in uncomfortable sleep at night.

Well, strong support itself depends on several things – the materials, structure, and support slats. Standard metal bed frames last for many years and work as an excellent base for box spring and mattress. They can accommodate heavy weight, don’t wear out over time, and can withstand numerous assembly and dis-assembly.

The wooden frames are available in a variety of styles and add to the aesthetic of a setting. But, they don’t match the metal units in terms of durability. Some frames are a mix of metal and wood materials, serving both purposes of durability and aesthetic.

The slat dimensions, especially the thickness, mostly contribute to the overall strength and stability of the frame. However, the 3-inch rule – the spacing between slats no more than 3 inches – is still a standard that should not be overlooked.

Thin, wider-spaced slats bow downward and cause sagging in the mattress. As a result, your body will be in awkward positions, making sleep uncomfortable. However, Zinus bed frames mostly have wider, thicker slats that create an unyielding surface. The steel slats tend to be tougher and stronger. They are able to hold heavier mattresses.

The Zinus bed frames can hold sufficient weight. The limit is 250 lbs for Twin and Full beds while it extends to 500 lbs for Queen and King size frames.


Some Zinus bed frames may come with some extra features – like headboards, footboards, caps under legs, and more. Several models include a headboard and a few of them offer a footboard too – of several heights. It means that you don’t have to spend extra money on these features.

Legs wrapped with caps are good for the floor. Unless you have carpet, the beautiful floor will get scratches from the bed’s legs. Caps under the legs also reduce the sliding.

The storage under the bed is a lifesaver when you have a small bedroom. Zinus bed frames create some much-needed storage space where you can fit large bins and suitcases. The elevation could be lower for some frames but there is always some space between the floor and the bed surface.

Zinus is exceptional when it comes to shipping, trial period and warranty. The shipping is free as the company has a business deal with Fed Ex. Plus, the company is successful in establishing a trusted relationship with the customers by offering 10-night sleep trial and 5-year limited warranty on all of their products.

You can try out the bed frame or base and return it for a full refund within 100 days. However, you have to submit the proof of purchase and necessary paperwork for getting the money back. Also, there should be no damaged parts or drool, stains, and bad smells. The 5-year warranty covers your back if there is any material or manufacturing
