This is a pic of the slats from the first metal bed pic
I guessing too thin and too wide apart?
I don't like metal, its just so... metally! Cold, hard, I think of nails on a blackboard. Someone gave us a metal cot when dd1 was born and I have it back (hand-me down) cos it felt so awful to the touch. My skin just about squeaked on it like nails on a blackboard . Maybe they are not all like that but it totally put me off metal furniture.
Wood on the other hand is soft, warm, organic... I would pick wood over metal any day
PS super amart are ok, they have some trash but lots of ok stuff, and prices are good
I like the wooden bed the most.
DD's bed is like the last one I think - but it has a higher end which I prefer because I think it gives a better balance to the feel of the bed. I prefer wood over metal too.
Those with wooden beds how do you find them to move and take apart? Have they held up well?
I want something easy to take apart and put back together. Dh and i have an ensemble so thats easy to move!
I had an iron bed growing up - actually iron. Was a big old antique thing that was my grandparents. It made such a racket!! But that probably isn't a great comparison :-)
DH and I had timber and 'iron' bed! The damn thing creaked and groaned every time you moved - I HATED it. We now have an ensemble as does DS. I figured DS would one day be a big bulky teenager, so may as well get something that will last :-)
I bought something a bit like this for DD, second hand on eBay (can't show you a pic as it's in storage until we move house, so I found a comparable one on google). I'm really into the girly shabby chic look so I love cast iron beds.

Have you checked out incy interiors? They make the most beautiful children's iron beds and also timber beds.Definitely more on the higher end designer range but its amazing quality and they also have beautiful chairs that look lovely in the corner of a bedroom.
These are the ones from incy interiors and they also come in pink, yellow and a few other colours.
