I love the look of this bed and want to find a way to make it work. However, the bottom of the frame does not support the mattress. There are only three metal slats that lay across the bottom of the frame. When my son lays on his bed, part of the mattress caves between the metal slats. Basically, the bed frame needs additional slates to cover the entire bottom frame. Anytime I have seen a bed that does not require a box springs, it will have enough slates/support to accommodate the weight of the mattress and a person. As a solution, I have thought about adding a box springs to the bottom of the frame for support, but I am not sure if it securely stay put on the frame without sliding off. My son and I spent a couple of hours putting this together, so I don't really want to take it apart and return it.
