I bought this bed for my grandsons for when they come over to sleep and they LOVE it!! I gave it 5 stars because what you see is what you get. I wished the instructions were more detailed so it took a while to put together. Once we did, the bed looked beautiful, just like the picture shown. Very sturdy, especially for my young grandsons. I hope to keep this bed until they outgrow it.
These beds come in a nice color and some pretty easy-to-understand instructions. As I read in some other reviews about this product, the hardware is crap! The trick to this bunk set is to moderately tighten each piece to where it is comfortably sturdy. Any tightening of these pieces will snap them (hardware). The construction of the wooden pieces is strong enough to support an adult (even though the product says 165 lbs.). The slats are numerous and support the matresses fine. The weakest part of this bed is the ladder. That might only support 165 lbs. My kids love their new bed! It took me about 2 1/2 hrs to put it together. Buy this bed set and you will be glad you did. It's pretty nice..
These bunk beds were overall a good deal. They are inexpensive, so you have to accept that from the get go. The instructions were clear enough to assemble the bed in about 2 hours. I did find that the cheap finish screws broke off when using a power drill to install them. Definitely make a run to the hardware store and pick up a dollar bag of similar screws of higher quality. We also saw that one of the headboards had a paper thin crack running through the vertical supports. I don't think it extends all the way through the frame, but we are going to request a replacement just to be safe - you definitely don't want these things to collapse on your young one in the lower bunk. The slats are nice - numerous thin pieces of wood that woven together with a nylon running chord. The unit when properly assembled is pretty sturdy. I'm wouldn't climb into the top bunk with my kids, though. The finish was remarkably good and even. It won't hold up to the sort of wear and tear that kids generate on bedroom furniture, but at under ***, if they last 5 years we will probably be ready for something else at that point anyway. Do note that the ladder can only be positioned the way it is shown. There is no option for removing it or switching it to the other side.
The beds look great and are comfortable. The assembly was quite straightforward and took two of us about 2 hours to complete.
