I purchased this bed for my teenage son's room, in part, for the storage it would provide. We both love the look. However, the drawer is worthless as it cannot be opened without a fight. The bed frame just sits too close to the floor (and without adequate clearance for the drawer pull out) causing it to drag. This may not be an issue on a hardwood floor, but if you have carpeting--even low or no pile carpeting like us--be advised the drawer will be worthless. Note: I purchased the White Glove Service, so the bed was assembled by professionals.
