The bed was fairly difficult to put together, mainly because of the rather vague instructions. We managed to assemble it, but it would have been helpful to have more detailed information on the website (such as which size of mattress would fit). Some of the components look quite cheap (for e.g., the handles for the drawers). When finished, it looks good and it's very useful to have the extra storage space. Will need to see how it copes with usage over time.
