Pros

This bed is actually more classic than it looks in the pictures. It comes properly packed and with all the parts well labeled. The colors are neutral, hence harmonious with a wide range of color themes. You can decide to go with a multi-colored theme, and they will still blend in effortlessly. The paint is also of high quality and highly resilient to peeling off, to mean the bed will maintain its neat texture even after many years of use. The design of the bed is also beautiful, and it will redefine your kid’s room into a whole new little paradise.

The bed is very sturdy and does not move when climbed on. The guardrails are strong and provide maximum safety while the slats hold the mattress in place and prevent it from sliding. The space left below the bed is wide enough to keep some stuff or set a table and a chair for your kid to use for studying. Alternatively, your space can be used to set another bed, thus saving on space.

The assembling process of this bed is relatively easy. One customer had her 16-year-old and 15-year-old assemble it on their own, a task which they managed to finish within an hour. Besides all the parts being well labeled, the clear and straightforward instructions also attribute to the fairly easy and less time-consuming assembling process.

Lastly, the weight capacity of the bed is quite enough for a kid or two. A customer mentioned that she bought one for her son who is 165 lbs and the bed does not wobble whenever he gets on it.

Cons

The built-in ladder is quite narrow, and you will use a lot of effort climbing up or down. The edges of the stepping rails are also somewhat crude and uncomfortable to step on. Additionally, the guardrails are all around the lengths of the bed, and there is no space left for climbing onto the bed. This makes getting on the bed tricky since you will have to raise your legs over the railings, which is very uncomfortable.

Most customers had issues with the guardrails. Since they are not padded, sleeping against them is uncomfortable, and you will feel the hurt when you sleep on the bed without improvising a pad to put against the rails.

Lastly, one customer received his bed with faulty bolts which kept on popping off, this made the assembling process hectic as he had to disassemble the bed again, and while at it, a few other bolts also popped. This can be very dangerous if not corrected.

Conclusion

The design of this chair is indeed high-grade, and so are the paints used on the finishing, which are very glossy. The high-quality materials used in constructing it are a plus, and they give the bed an edge over anything in the same price range. The metal used on the frames makes it pretty sturdy and steady. The fact that it does not wobble or produce creaky sounds is also a plus.

So, if you want a sturdy, safe, and elegant bed that will help you save space, besides being budget-friendly, then Belfort Charmaine Twin Loft is the right bed for you.
