First, I'd like to say that you shouldn't put this bed together alone if you are putting it in a tight space. It's probably best to have help even though it's easily assembled. I do not have the problem of it being overly large and there being gaps around the mattress. The bed is a total princess bed : ) I like that. You should be aware (although you are probably not expecting it) that while the headboard is tufted it's not button tufted.
