I bought this bed for my teenage son (16 yo). I needed to get him a bed that would hold his size (200+lbs and still growing). Was very happy with the quality and the color (walnut). Putting this bed together was no problem (make sure your drill is charged-lots of screws). We only needed to get a top mattress since this is a platform bed, so that saves a little money for you. The height of the bed was good too, my son can still put his containers under his bed. The only thing with the frame is there is a small space between the mattress, but you can't see it when the bedding is in place. Still felt this bed desires 5 stars. The best thing is that my son loves his new bed! Hope this info helps with your decision.
