Just love my new shaker bed frame from Julian Bowen it's just so stylish and the grains are brilliant for matching my other furniture in the bedroom. I went with the king size in the end it worked the best with the size of my bedroom. The oak effect is what i wanted it really does look special everything i ever wanted. The build of the bed it's self is solid make sure to tighten all the bolts and stuff up this will make it more sturdy. The low foot end is what i wanted hate tall and bulky foot boards makes me feel stuck inside the bed. My husband is also made up with the bed he's always telling me how cool it is.

Thank you for your feedback! We hope to see you again soon! Thanks, Better Bed Company

The structure is sturdy and the mattress fits with the bed base nicely. The two tone was what I went with in the end just couldn't make my mind up at first but thought this would look nice in the bedroom.

Very impressed

This bed is really good for the price couldn't have asked for more. I like the shaker styled design this is really modern for me and I love the oak colour too. I only have a small bedroom so the double was all I could get in but there's more room underneath it's amazing what you can get in there.

Thank you for your feedback! We hope to see you again soon! Thanks, Better Bed Company

Great price

The Salerno Shaker Bed Frame is just all about quality it's a must if you like the oak wood. It arrived on time and I built it right up fast couldn't wait to spend the night on it as my old one was well fit for the bin. The guy put everything in the bedroom i was bit like what am i going to do now but just took my time. I do like the slatted bas on this bed it gives my mattress loads of support and alos the headboard is my fav just looks class in the bedroom.

Good quality

Really glad I went with bettre bed company on my new Salerno Shaker Bed Frame by Julain Bowen they were really helpful on everything they even called to see how I got on with the delivery guy. The beds up now and I can say im impressed with the quality it's only a small bedroom so had to go with the double size in the end. The low foot end allows me to rest up as i'm 6ft6 in height my legs sit nicely on the top.

What are the advantages to a low footboard?

With the Julian Bowen Salerno bed frame having a low foot end you get plenty of benefits.
