I have a small bedroom (15x15). I saw this platform bed on line and ordered it after reading the reviews. I got the order in a relatively short time, came in two large heavy boxes. It has been a year now since I ordered it and I really can say that this bed is great! Assembly does take two people for best results, pretty easy to put together. The bed is very sturdy, storage drawers are sturdy as well but I would advise that you shouldn't put heavy items/clothes in the drawers, they work better for light clothing/undergarments. I even ordered the matching headboard and received compliments from friends and relatives who saw my room. Bottom line, go ahead and get this bed if you have a small room and you want to get both a nice size bed and storage rolled into one.
