The quality is excellent for the price. It is a sturdy, well made piece of furniture. We love the modern, minimal style in white. Our bedsprings are tall so they do show. We either need to get a bedspring cover or buy the new low style. It does require a bedspring. The wood slates underneath are not enough to hold the mattress. There are wood feet in the middle to distribute the weight. We do hear some normal bed noises, not sure if it is the boxspring, mattress, or the bedframe. We love that you can roomba/swiffer under the bed to catch doggie hairballs.
