Michelle R 5 We didn't have room for bedside tables next to the bed and so this bed was a good solution with storage space and lighting built into the headboard. The frame is not solid wood but is of better quality than most particle board furniture in this price range. The bed is VERY low to the floor and so would work well for children and families. There was a slight break in the headboard from shipping but not enough to go through the hassle of sending it back. Easy to assemble. We are happy with our purchase.
