      The headboard is nicely designed. The platform bed is sturdy and very comfortable.

      Service and delivery comments:

      Room and Board provides the best delivery service I've ever experienced. They call 2 days prior to provide a 2 hour window which is very considerate. The delivery people are puncuntal. They are very careful with the furniture and position it exactly where I want it. They are friendly and just plain nice.

      This piece works well to help make a platform bed. Be sure to let it air out before you place your mattress on top... it has a wierd smell that takes at least a month to go away.

      Great delivery, as always. Room & Board delivery is the best!

        extended functional life of mattress

          Customer comments about Queen Split Platform Board Set/2:

          I originally purchased my mattress (plush innerspring) from R&B with my bed (Sheldon low footboard; this is now discontinued, but it is a steel bed with the mattress supported by crossbars) in summer 2009. The mattress was very comfortable and kept its shape well for about 4 years, but over the past year it's gradually started sagging in between the crossbars. I was hoping that this board would help so that we could delay buying a new mattress, and it has--there is much more support and no more hills-and-valleys. It does off-gas a little, but after half-a-day with the window open it was manageable.

          As suggested by one of the other reviewers, I was able to avoid the delivery fee by directly picking it up from the local distribution warehouse. It fit without any problem in a 4-door sedan.

              Customer comments about Queen Split Platform Board Set/2:

              I discovered this item one day while perusing mattress offerings online. I've owned a Room and Board bed for several years which I'd been overall happy with, but because of the slats beneath the mattress it could be difficult to neatly and easily re-sheet your bed. Using this item makes for a flat surface similar to having box spring beneath your mattress and making it much easier to re-sheet the bed (as was mentioned in some other reviews).

              I am very happy with this product and recommend it to anyone that has or is purchasing a Room and Board bed. I suggested to the sales associate that the item should be suggested on sale of such beds.

                These boards are functional and probably unnecessary with the Parsons bed I ordered. I thought they would help making the bed easier, but I don't think it would have been an issue without them. Only negative is that when the boards are first unwrapped, they have a quite noticeable odor and need to be left in an open space to "air-out" for at least three days. That dissipated and all is good.

                      Q:

                      We bought an Anders bed and a mattress for that bed 2 years ago. The mattress is too hard for us now and, it has always been difficult to make the bed because the mattress sits below the bed frame. Questions:
                      1) do you sell mattress toppers - Fieldcrest 3" foam?
                      2) would the Queen Split platform board be adequate to lift the current mattress above the bed frame so one could get one's fingers under the mattress to make the bed?

                        We recommend using a mattress only with all of our beds. The proportion of our bed frames work best with a mattress 10-12 inches thick. Most boxsprings will add too much height to a mattress. If you have other questions, feel free to contact our Design Associates at 800-301-9720.

                      I have a Queen Ella bed that I purchased about 8 years ago. Will this fit? I recently purchased an organic memory foam mattress and the specs require slats that are less than 3 inches apart. My Ella bed slats are about 5 inches apart. I would like to put this on top of the metal slats.

                      Also, I am concerned about the review stating that this product has a strong smell. What is R&B's response to this complaint?

                        Our Platform Board functions best over a multi-slat support support system. Bed frames vary in design and may not have cross bars located in the right positions to provide the necessary foundation for the board(s).

                        Yes, it will fit on the Copenhagen Bed. However you will likely see part of the 1"h platform above the bed frame, as the slats it rests on are almost flush with the side rails.
