I was skeptical to order a piece of furniture online. I finally took a risk and ordered it (price was very affordable). Let me start by saying that I love this bed. I have a temperpedic mattress and for years I have hated it because i was using my old box springs. Mind you, this temperpeudic mattress was VERY expensive and i had to bear with it because I am still paying it off. No one told me that a temperpedic mattress REQUIRES temperpedic boxsprings too. I was going to purchase the temperpedic foundation but it was way over $600 for calKing. Anywho, this bed is excellent! all the boards that run across the bottom of the bed frame keep the mattress from sinking in. It took me 4 years to finally get a good night sleep in a temperpedic, espensive mattress. It is a platform bed so its very low. I love this because i have a 4 yr old who sleep walk and crawls in my bed. I can see the new baby doing the same thing in a year or so.
