Review

The Atlantic Furniture Richmond Bunk Bed features a Roman-inspired arch and slat design and is sure to not only suit well but also embellish any room you decide to put it in. This mission-style bunk bed for kids has a solid mortise and tenon construction with 26 steel reinforcement points, which ensures the sturdiness of its structure. Two 14 piece slat kits are included, making box springs and bunkie boards unnecessary. The material used in construction is Asian rubberwood -- a type of solid hardwood that is used more and more often in manufacture of high-end furniture. In addition to its good mechanical properties, this material is also environmentally friendly, since it makes use of trees that have been cut down at the end of their latex-producing life cycle and are always replaced with new seedlings. The Richmond Bunk Bed is available in twin over twin size and can accept under bed storage drawers or a trundle bed.

Let's review what the buyers have to say about it.

The Good

Durability -- the majority of buyers seem to be quite happy with the sturdiness and overall build quality of this bunk bed. Lack of rattling, shaking, swaying, or movement of any kind is often reported in this regard. The bed is described as substantial, sturdy, safe, having a solid feel. A couple of reviewers reported having some misgivings about sturdiness at the beginning of assembly, but apparently once the ladder is attached everything tightens up.

Attractiveness -- the bed's simple elegance leaves few people indifferent. To an extent, this can be experienced by checking out the images to the left. Along with design, users very often mention the bed's finish, which is described as elegant and sophisticated.

Ease of assembly -- most buyers managed to put this bed together without much trouble, in a few hours at most. One or two differing opinions do exist, but more on that in "the not so good" section. It does require two people to do the job, though, if for no other reason than to put the top and bottom bed together.

The Not So Good

The complaints about this bunkbed have usually to do with missing screws or plugs, damaged pieces, incorrect color of certain parts, rough finish and similar. One user shared an opinion that head and foot board posts needed to be a little thicker for more stability. Another experienced some frustrations with the assembly process, claiming many of the pre-drilled holes for the bolts and nuts were drilled a fraction of an inch off -- this resulted in the need to make elongated holes and lengthened the assembly process.

Bottom Line

The phrase we bumped into most often when researching buyers' opinions on this product was: happy with what we got for the money. And that pretty much sums the essence of the Richmond bunk bed: while it is not the be-all-end-all of all bunk beds, by the majority of accounts given by people who have actually bought it, what we have here is a sturdy, well-made piece of furniture which looks great and it's versatile enough -- a good choice for a budget shopper.
