The bed is very nice looking - the only reason I am giving 4 stars instead of 5 is because the color is quite different than the picture. I have had this happen on more than a couple online orders though so I was not too surprised or too upset. The color is more of a matte silver/slate not black at all. But it is still a very good looking bed. I put the whole thing together by myself with the use of a power drill to make it go much quicker, but it was not necessary to have the drill. It seems very sturdy and doesn't move around or make noise which is a HUGE plus and really the reason I was getting a new bed to begin with. I would recommend this product.
