Although it was a very time consuming process putting the bed together, the instructions were excellent and all parts was clearly labelled and packaged together logically. The bed is really good quality for the price, and went together relatively easily - screw holes all aligning etc. The pull-out wardrobe is a great feature as are the storage cupboards beneath each ladder tread, which are generously proportioned. The only thing I would caution against is the size - it is huge! The end panel forms the extreme edge of the ladder so projects further into the room than we expected, and we are met by a huge floor to almost ceiling end panel as we walk into the bedroom. We also ordered it in anthracite grey, which although looks very cool, adds to the monolith effect! But our son loves it, and it is great value for money.
