The smart base steel bed frame sits up high enough, 14 inches off of the floor, that you can easily store larger items under the bed. I know people who have purchased plastic clothes tubs with lids from Wal-Mart that cleanly and neatly slide under this kind of bed. The drawback to the under the bed storage capability of the smart base is it can be visible. The solution to this problem is to use a matching bed skirt to hide your stuff!
Another great benefit of the smart base is the fact that it comes un-assembled. Assembly is fairly easy, with no real tools required. The bolts are designed to hand tighten and it comes partly built. Where is the benefit for you? since you hate to bolt anything together. Well, not only can you easily take the smart base back apart to move it to another state. The smart base can also be used in the situation where you cannot fit a full size or queen size box spring up the stairs. This situation occurs much more often then you may realize. Because the smart base comes apart, it will go anywhere. I have known people to literally use a chain saw to slice a box spring in two and then re-assemble it in the room it goes in.
This steel bed frame is very durable, so it is a perfect choice for couples who are quite active in their bed as was described in details in this review http://www.wessexbeds.com/best-bed-frame-sexually-active-couples/.
A bad point about the smart base steel bed frame is that it comes with legs, not wheels. This frame is not designed to be dragged, scooted or pulled across a room. It can break. The smart base needs to be picked up (with the mattress and bedding off of it) can carried to where it is going. Please do not drag it because you will break it.
