This bed is very sturdy I would have rated this bed a 5-star, but one big downside for me is that the length of the bed is 80Ē which places the footboard right against the mattress and there is no room for a bedspread to fall between the mattress and the footboard. We got around this by making a piece of 2x4 fit between the footboard and the rail (had to buy long bolts for this) to extend its length and painted the wood black. Perfect! The bedspread falls nicely between the mattress and footboard and I canít even see the wood extensions. The headboard and footboard arrived in perfect shape and they are packaged very well. However, some of the slats and one of the rails were bent b/c they are packaged together and without protective material. We were able to bend the rail and the dents in the slats did not matter. We also added a piece of plywood to place above the rails as we are using a foam mattress and was concerned that the foam would go in a wavy way across the slats. The bed does not squeak and it is a charcoal color. The design is geometric which can have a very modern look, or as in my case, can be eclectic to go with some antique stands b/c it also leans a bit in Craftsman design. It took two of us two hours to put the bed together, but that is b/c we added the wood extensions.
