This bed platform is perfect for the minimalist look. It is well made of solid wood, not veneer or some composite material, so it's sturdy. Since it is shipped in three boxes, I was able to carry it up the stairs by myself. I also put it together by myself with very little trouble. There was one siderail that did not have the guide holes drilled in the right places, but I was able to put the screws in anyway with a good screwdriver. There was one of the center support legs that smelled like a feral cat had its way with it, but I washed it with an oxy cleaner and there has been no odor since. Overall, I'm very happy with my selection and the promptness of the delivery.
