Birlea Rio Bed - Wood, Waxed Pine, Double

Poor Quality, Rickety, Squeaky - not recommended!
Initially thought this was great value for money but on reflection really disappointed with it now. Although it's described as solid wood, the headboard is actually made of cheap quality pine sheets that are slatted together and give in somewhat when you lean your head back on it. As per other reviewers, after 6 months of (light) use we are experiencing many squeaks and creaks now. I have tightened (not overtightened!) the screws on a few occasions but there is only so much this can be done as the screws screw directly into the wood and the threading on the soft wood will wear away. The slats to support the mattress are too few in my opinion, they are spaced out to the point that there is a gap of at least 6 inches between each one, so not sure how well this will treat our good quality mattress long-term, should it last longer than a couple of years! I personally would not recommend this bed. Pay a bit more and get something more durable. A good bed and in turn a good night's sleep...
