So let’s dive right into it:

Zinus Suzanne Metal and Wood Platform Bed with Headboard

The Zinus Suzanne is a classic combination of wood and steel coming together in a sturdy platform bed with a classic aesthetic.

This platform bed is available in twin through king and can be ordered with or without a footboard. Zinus also offers expert assembly, but two people shouldn’t have a problem with putting this piece together in under 30 minutes.

Between the simple instruction and the provided wrench, construction is very easy for most.

Although most frames within this price range have stability problems, the Suzanne king-sized weighs in at 104 pounds (with footboard included) and has a very tight construction.

The impressive weight of this unit is due to the quality materials used. Firstly, Zinus uses thick steel in the Suzanne’s construction which provides extra strength. Another factor is the cherry-finished pine wood.

Here’s the deal with pine:

Although pine is categorized as softwood, it’s a popular choice in furniture and interior construction. In fact, pine is known for being a very sturdy and weather-resistant softowood. Topped with a cherry wood finish, the result is solid reddish-brown wood with a natural texture and high resistance to the elements.

A common worry with heavier pieces is the squeaking and grinding of materials; this is not a problem with the Suzanne. The included steel bolts hold this piece together without slack or wobble. Many past customers of the Suzanne have commented on how this piece doesn’t squeak; even with three kids jumping on top of it at once.

One potential con is the fact that this frame is a platform bed, meaning that it sits low to the ground. With 5 inches between the floor and the frame, taller people or those looking for additional storage space should consider buying risers.

The Suzanne comes with a 5-year limited warranty. Essentially, if the frame arrives defective or if you find problems with the construction itself you can contact Zinus for a replacement or a pro-rated refund.

All in all, the Suzanne is a very well rated frame, it’s a solid choice for those looking for a sturdy bed with a naturalistic look.

Pros:

  • Made from real wood, with element resistant finish
  • Very sturdy build
  • Simple construction
  • Naturalistic look
  • Comes with a 5-year warranty

Cons:

  • Sits very low to the floor
  • Footboard comes optional
  • One person may struggle with assembly

Zinus Curtis Essential Upholstered Platform Bed Frame

The Zinus Essential features upholstery along the frame for a more contemporary-fashioned look.

One big benefit of this frame is the closely placed wooden slats. With less space for your mattress sag, you won’t need a boxspring or second mattress for comfortability. These tightly spaced slats also help with the longevity of a mattress, saving you time and money in the long run.

Zinus also designed this frame with velcro slats to prevent your mattress from slipping and sliding as you move around.

A potential problem with the Essential is that it doesn’t come with any headboard or footboard. This isn’t a big deal if you sleep against a wall with plenty of pillows, but if your bed will be in the center of a room and you tend to move a lot in your sleep, you may find yourself waking up with all of your bedding on the floor.

This bed sits only 7 inches from the floor unless risers are added. However, those with back problems or shorter people trying to find a bed that they don’t have to climb into might appreciate a frame closer to the ground.

As far as assembly, the Essential is very simple to put together. Plus, with a total weight of fewer than 70 pounds (for the full size), solo assembly shouldn’t be a problem. A provided Allen key is plenty for assembly.

Although this frame is lighter in weight, previous customers have attested to the solid build from Zinus. You won’t find any creaking or wobbling from this frame.

The Essential comes with a 5-year warranty from Zinus. This warranty covers any faulty construction at the fault of the manufacturer.

At the end of the day, the Essential is a good frame featuring a fashionable grey upholstery that’d fit into most bedrooms.

Pros:

  • Tighter slats help the longevity of the mattress
  • No need for a boxspring
  • Velcro underneath slats for extra stability
  • Contemporary fashioned grey upholstery
  • Comes with a 5-year warranty

Cons:

  • Headboard not available
  • Sits lower to the floor compared to other models
  • The frame doesn’t fit correctly if the screws are overtightened

Zinus Dachelle Upholstered Button Tufted Premium Platform

Featuring a padded headboard, the Zinus Dachelle is simply a comfortable frame available in both light and dark grey.

Sure, the knitted polyester headboard offers a great contemporary aesthetic, but my favorite part of this frame is that you won’t have to worry as much about hitting your head on wood or metal in the night.

As far as assembly, the Dachelle is overall simple, one person should expect 30-45 minutes to put everything together. The provided hex key is all that is needed and instructions are simple.

All assembly parts and pieces come zippered to the headboard upon delivery. Zinus also offers expert assembly for this frame if you prefer to skip the hassle.

The Dachelle is available from twin to California King, covering all adult mattress sizes. Regardless of size, the weight of the Dachelle may catch a customer off guard. This frame is very solid and won’t wobble or squeak.

You can also find a 5-year Zinus warranty on this frame covering defective construction or parts.

Depending on the size you purchase (larger sizes sit lower), the Dachelle stands 12-14 inches from the floor. This is enough space to store some things but if you’re looking for a lot of storage you should consider buying risers.

Pros:

  • Padded headboard, especially nice for active sleepers
  • Easy assembly
  • Heavy and solid build
  • Comes with a 5-year warranty
  • Available in 2 different colors (light and dark grey)

Cons:

  • The package is very heavy, which can be a pain if you live on the second floor of an apartment
  • When paired with a taller mattress like the 13’ Casper Wave, the headboard is short

Zinus Shawn 14 Inch SmartBase Mattress Foundation

The Zinus Shawn is a great budget option that doesn’t sacrifice stability or durability for a lower price.

Made entirely from steel, this sturdy frame holds without squeaking or wobbling. To avoid the industrial look of the Shawn, Zinus also offers a machine-washable bed skirt.

With 14 inches of space beneath the frame, the Shawn is the most spacious option on our list. This is a huge factor for those looking for an extra bit of storage space.

An outstanding feature of this frame is the tight spacing pattern of the mattress support bars. Tighter spacing eliminates the need for a box spring, gives you a more comfortable surface for sleep, and prevents sagging which helps elongate the life of your mattress. Extra legs also help to evenly distribute the weight of your bed, adding stability to the frame and optimum support for your mattress.

Oh, and don’t worry about the slick surface of a metal frame either; Zinus has designed the supporting steel bars to grip to your mattress to prevent any sliding in the night.

The assembly of the Shawn is tool-free, and only takes minutes to completely set up. Disassembly and transportation is a breeze as well.

One downside is that this model does not come with a headboard, but you can order a set of headboard brackets and the headboard itself separately.

Pros:

  • Very sturdy steel frame
  • Most spacious option
  • Most inexpensive option
  • Easy to assemble and disassemble (tool-free)
  • Optional bed skirt available
  • Extra mattress support
  • A 5-year warranty covers replacement of faulty workmanship/materials

Cons:

  • Headboard and brackets sold separately
  • Would be painful to accidentally kick in the night

Conclusion

Finding the best frame for your Casper mattress is about a few things:

  1. Your budget for a new frame shouldn’t sacrifice quality. Sure, spending more money will get you a better-looking frame that might last a bit longer, but there are platform beds that will hold up for years without spending big money.

  2. Customer ratings are a huge factor in any online purchase. Especially for important products like bed frames, customers will tell you everything you need to know and more. Just make sure that you’re reading reviews from verified buyers, and stray away from products with fewer reviews. A simple Google search for a product followed by the phrase “reviews” will usually give you loads of additional information as well.

  3. Casper mattresses are very quality, and they aren’t cheap. Always invest in a frame with mattress support, this means tight support spacing. When a mattress constantly sags, it drastically decreases the longevity and support of the bed. You’ll find yourself buying a whole new mattress very quickly if you don’t keep this in mind.
