I have a small bedroom and wanted a simple but elegant platform bed, preferably solid wood. This bed met all my criteria and then some. My son-in-law and daughter put it together in about a half hour, all the parts were in the packages and everything fit as it should. I put a memory foam mattress (no box springs) on it and with a simple coverlet, it is perfect. I needed a new bed to be closer to the floor. ( I was to have knee replacement surgery) and needed to be able to get in and out of bed alone. This is one of the best buys I have ever made and the mattress is outstanding. Not a bad night's sleep since I got it and my room looks great, too. I highly recommend this product.
