This bed is solid! It took me less than an hour to put it together by myself. A second person is helpful but not absolutely necessary. I didn't need any tools other than what was in the box. I combined it with a memory foam mattress. It's a snug fit at the foot board, so I wouldn't recommend any super puffy comforters if you plan on tucking it in. I am absolutely satisfied. I would recommend it to anyone who wants comfort, stability, and style on a budget.
This bed looks amazing, but as you're putting it together with its plastic snap on slat holders and plastic bed legs, you realize it is not made to last. My son is a large guy at 250 lbs and the side rail which is vinyl covered wood of some type, cracked and we had to repair it, and this was with normal use - no abuse, after having it setup for about 3-4 months.
I'm a single bachelor and I date a LOT. Through all of the use and abuse this bed has gotten, it has held up surprisingly well. I did manage to break on of the slats, but that had more to do with a particularly enthusiastic date than the bed itself. 5 stars...
Love this bed. Bought a queen 5+ years ago, and it's held up beautifully. Last year I upgraded to a king and needed a new bed. I looked high and low for another style I liked more. Couldn't find one, so I bought the same bed in a king too! The queen is now in a guest room, and still looks beautiful.
I purchased this bed for our guest room to replace a too small double. It arrived in 3 boxes on 2 consecutive days. There was no damage. I hired a fellow to assemble it and it took him about 30 mins. once unboxed. It look great in the room next to a turquoise wall and more expensive than it was. We have had one tall guest sleep on it so far and he said it was very comfortable with the mattress I also ordered from Overstock, the Priage Euro Box Top 13-in. I recommend it!
This bed is perfect in every way! It must be manufactured differently now because two of the top rated reviews are not applicable. 1. NO POWER DRILL NEEDED. Unfortunately I read a review saying that I would need a power drill to put this bed together. So I bought one, the bed came and .... NO, you don't need a power drill. 2. There is NO GAP between the bed frame and the mattress. I have a queen size memory foam mattress and it fits perfectly!! 3. You can put this bed together by yourself granted that all of your limbs are healthy. I am a small woman and was able to put this bed together just fine on my own, it was like working with legos.
