I have a small place and need lots of storage. This bed is perfect for me. 6 drawers which are a little bigger than in my chest allowed me to move my chest into my spare room and use this for my clothes. You don't need your boxspring, just a mattress. Has lots of parts so give yourself 2 hours to assemble but worth the time (the drawers take most fo the time as there's 6 x all the parts) Worth the price and arrived in 8 days. Thanks Overstock!
