Zinus Tuscan Metal & Wood Platform Bed Review

We recently decided to change up the platform bed (bed frame) that I use for mattress reviews, so let's take a look at the Zinus Tuscan Metal & Wood Platform Bed!

The Tuscan Metal & Wood Platform Bed! (Mattress not Included)

This bed frame is a platform bed (as the name indicates, of course!) -- i.e., it is designed for mattresses that do not require a box spring. The vast majority of modern mattresses don't require a box spring, so this fits the bill in almost all situations -- but if it doubt, check with your mattresses manufacturer.

See my video for the assembly:

The Tuscan Metal & Wood Platform Bed (from here on I'll, just call it "the Tuscan") sits 14 inches
high. The most common mattress height that I review is about 11-12 inches tall, so the surface of the mattress will be about 25 to 26 inches off the ground. The under-bed clearance is 12" from the side, and a bit shorter from the foot of the bed. There's a fair bit of storage space underneath, if you're into that sort of thing, but note that there are 3 vertical center supports, so you can't fit one very large object under the entirety of the bed . . . for example, you couldn't store a full-size mattress underneath the queen size Tuscan.

The Tuscan is quite easy to assemble, it requires no tools outside of what comes in the box (other than a box cutter or scissors to cut things open). However, the ratchet tool that comes with it is pretty small, so if you have your own ratchet with the ability to attach a hex bit, that's better. I started assembling mine with the included tool, but gave up and got my own out part way through to make my life a tad bit easier. My actual assembly time was 36 minutes. It's not quite as fast as the Zinus QuickSnap, which I reviewed about a year ago, but it's still easy enough that most able-bodied adults would be able to do it.

It weighs 76 pounds altogether, and comes in 1 box. In my case, I was taking it to a 2nd story bedroom, so I opened it on the first floor and carried the components up stairs separately.

The assembly was what you see in the video (at "regular human speed," of course!!!). The instructions are easy and intuitive. Everything attaches with screws. The screws come in a nice packet that makes it very unlikely that a screw would be missing. There are a couple extra screws they give you just incase, which I appreciate.

For the price, this is a really good value. It's not the fanciest thing in the world, but it does the job. The headboard and footboard are made from composite wood, not one peice of natural wood. If you look closely you can tell, but it doesn't distract too much. It feels very sturdy and in my limited use so far, doesn't squeak at all.

I highly recommend it.

  25. How to choose a mattress: everything you need to know

    Did you know that you will spend approximately a third sleeping throughout your life? That is about 27 years, which is why it is so important to buy a good mattress. You already know quality rest, reduction of back pain, greater energy, a better mood throughout the day, and much more.

    A study carried out in 2009 by the Spanish Bed Association (ASOCAMA) indicated that 32% of the Spanish population wakes up tired or with back pain.

    But the essential question is: do you know how to choose the right mattress among the dozens of types out there? Viscoelastic, latex, continuous springs, HR foam, futons,... if you get dizzy seeing so many names and you're unsure what you need, you'll find all the essential information to choose from easily and without fear of making a mistake.

    And it is that the most important thing is not the money you spend but to choose well and buy what you need. Do you want to know how to do it? Let's go there.


    Let's start with a visual summary of the eight keys to choosing correctly, and then we will talk about each point in detail.


    If you are "wide boned," you will need a firmer mattress that offers you even support and avoids the boat effect. On the contrary, lighter people need a more flexible mattress that distributes the weight well.

    As for the measurements, the mattress should be at least 10 cm longer than what you measure. In the case of a double bed, the tallest person is the one who will serve as a reference.

    The thickness of the mattress should be at least 15 cm to ensure comfort.

    For the width, the recommended thing would be a bed between 90 and 110 cm if you sleep alone and between 150 and 160 for double beds.


    If you sleep as a couple, you will appreciate a mattress that absorbs movement well so that the other person's changes in posture do not bother you. The ones that achieve it best are those made of viscoelastic and pocket springs.
