Pros

This bed comes well packaged with all the parts available. The delivery is on time, and the pieces are well labeled, making the assembling process quite easy. Talking of the assembling process, the bed is relatively effortless to put together. The instructions provided are pretty straight-forward and well detailed. With a helping hand and careful reading of the instructions, you can spend one and a half hours in putting it together.

The bed can be converted into two beds, which is a rare feature in most bunk beds, especially of its price range. In case you have enough space, you can choose to use the two beds separately. Additionally, if your kid’s room has less space vertically, converting the bunk bed into two will be a practical choice.

After putting it together, the bed looks even better than it appears on the pictures. The classy and sleek paint adds a notch of sass to it. The high-end solid wood with the neat finishing is also impeccable. Also, the combination of both traditional and contemporary designs is a plus as it is easily usable in different interior designs. Besides, the solid pine wood used on the frames, rails, ladder, and slats is pretty strong. This ensures the bed is steady, there are no creaky sounds when someone is climbing up or down, and that the bed is very functional and robust, hence giving it a longer usability period.

Lastly, the distance between the bottom bed and the floor is spacious enough, meaning you can easily store stuff below the bed. This also makes cleaning under the bed quite uncomplicated.

Cons

The twin size of this bed is quite narrow, and so is the built-in ladder which cannot comfortably accommodate a child with a little bit larger body size or a teenager. On the issue of weight, though 250 lb is the normal weight capacity of most bunk beds, it is quite less, and the bed can get unstable when occupied with more than two children with large bodies.

Another problem is that the stickers used in labeling the parts are very sticky and when removed will leave some residue on the wood, giving the headboard a rather disturbing appearance. A mildly sharp object can be used to remove this; not sharp enough to leave a scratch on the wood. However, trying to remove the stickers with your bare hands will not give any better results.

One customer particularly was displeased with the state of the bed. He received his bed with scratches and a few mislabeled parts which made the assembly difficult and time-consuming.

Typical of online shopping, there are always one or two problems, which go unnoticed by suppliers on a few items. However, these issues are minor and the bed is still very well functional. The bed is precisely as described, and the 4.6 stars rating makes that quite clear.

Conclusion

This bunk bed has come with great customer reviews and a very stylish design. The colors are very pleasant and sleek, which gives the bed an expensive look. The material used, that is, the solid pine wood is of high quality and offer sturdy support to the bed. The rails are strategically constructed to prevent falls, and the built-in ladder conveniently placed for easy climbing. Additionally, the assembly process is easy and the instructions direct and easy to follow.
