My grandson wanted to move rooms to get away from a 'pestering sister' as he put it. Since the 2 girls would be better in 2 smal
l rooms he got to get the bigger one. This bed fit the bill as the room is not able to handle more cumbersome furniture. He chose it because he liked the hide-a-way underneath. I chose it because he wouldn't be as high to the ceiling and it was a composite with bookcase, bin and dresser. He designed his room with blue, green and red primary colors...mom painted the wall in stripes of blue and green in various widths on a celery background. The wood tone of this piece is really set off with this color combination. He chose a black rug for underneath which accents his computer work station and blue drapes with red curtains underneath which I made from the top sheet. For a 7 year old boy he has quite the eye for decorating. We are all pleased with the purchase. Mom and Dad had no trouble putting it together. Only one suggestion tho.....holes are necessary on the sides of the shelf so that a curtian rod can be put through giving it more support so that the hasling and fooling around that may occur won't pull it off as easily ....as if affixed to the side and tugged with it may cause a problem with uneven breakage of the wood. Otherwise it's a super piece and a good buy. He's excited..we'd like it to last thru high school. What are the chances?
