The first thing to note about this bed is that it is really designed for a mattress that is below 10" high. Any more than that and you all but lose the headboard. Since I just moved into an apartment with a low ceiling, I wanted a sturdy low profile platform bed for my 14" mattress. But half-way through the assembly, I noticed that the mounting brackets were inverted on both sides (brackets meant for opposite sides had been used). A quick call to Overstock had a replacement bed sent to me within days. The clearance from ground to mattress (slats included) is about 4.5" so after assembling the bed, I decided to remove the slats and lay them across 2.5" high boards on the ground, gaining me about an inch of extra headboard space.
Loved the bed, color exactly as in the picture. Was delivered much earlier than expected. Beautiful! One slight issue is that there is a clearance, opening in the corners of the side rail.
