This will break due to poor design
The bed lasted a year of weekend use. The problem starts with how you pull the bed out. If you don't get the exact middle every time it looses at the back. This becomes more problematic over time as the wheels aren't really designed to be pulled on the carpet. This action twists the main support which will eventually pop out leading to the screws (attached to the back of the drawers) to eventually fail and rip out (destroying the bed). It looks pretty but because the wheels are crap and the main support area isn't thick nor actual wood the whole thing will break.
Style over function.
this bed is absolutely terrible, it looks great when it’s first put together ( which takes ages! ) however, drawers broke straight away and i can’t even sleep on it anymore! The two compartments just came apart!! absolutely awful quality, having to buy a new bed now as i am unable to sleep on this bed anymore.
Worst bed ever
This bed started out as a great.
Priced right although assembly was necessary.
It's a trundle and the slats are not sturdy.
My daughter cannot use the additional bed because it's bows in the middle. Had this bed a little over a year and within the first six months the drawers brok;They most likely cannot be replaced. The wholes make it essentially impossible to glue back together.
I have searched for replacement but have not found any. I will try to replace but unhappy with the quality of this bed.
I got this bed for the sake of space and saw many others. However because it was from IKEA I trusted the brand more and got it. I've pulled the bed out three times now and 2 slates are broken already just trying to get into bed.
Ok but slats poor quality
I put the bed together by myself and it did take about 2 hours. The bed itself is great for a 30kg 9 year old but I doubt it's useful for any adult as the slats broke on the trundle section on the first night after an adult sat on it. She didn't jump on it or bounce or even land heavily. She just sat down and it broke in half. In the three weeks I've had it 2 more slats have snapped from having a 15 year old boy kneel on it to get in bed.
It may not be the most expensive bed but I expected far more from an IKEA product. I will be asking for new slats free of charge.
Good as a single bed, for single person, needing storage in small room
I bought this when I was a student, and it worked well for 5 years. I bought it used from someone who had started putting it together for his child and given up (because the instructions are a bit vague and the construction will take an entire afternoon). You will need to buy many extra little screws and attachment hardware pieces so that the bed will actually feel stable when you use it. It is stable enough left as a single bed with the 3 large storage drawers underneath, but I do NOT recommend pulling it out to use a King bed with your partne...r. The slats will break. If you intend to keep it extended as a king bed, you will need to cut a custom made board to place over the slats to make it stable. The 3 storage drawers will hold a great deal of clothing.
Be aware takes a long time to construct!
Took two competent diyers 7 hours to construct. Involved having to lie on the floor to screw parts together from underneath! Instructions do not include a parts list and could be clearer in places. Ensure you have an electric screwdriver. Be aware of poor workmanship with some drilled holes being in the wrong place. Involves some rotating of heavy parts. Not for the faint hearted furniture assembler. We have yet to fall asleep on it as now imbibing champagne!
lovely bed but rubbish trundle
Can't pull it out on carpet, bit rubbish for ikea really! Should be at least an inch off the floor. I'll either have to put wheels on the bed and raise the pull out bed somehow or put a piece of ply under the wheels of the pull out bed so it will slide easily. I duno!
I regret buying this. Got a couple months ago and it keeps breaking. The boards aren't even close to strong enough. Very disappointed in this. Not worth the money.
Broke after 6 months.
When i first assembled the bed it took 8 hours! I have purchased and assembled many ikea items and this one took forever, not just that but when you pull out the drawers to make the bed into a queen its very flimsy! When just a twin the bed works as a bed just fine, a little tight even for one but it can work. When you make the bed bigger thats when problems start, because too much weight is put on the metal frame part of the bed it bends down. I literally had a night when i ended up on the floor because of this. I would not recommend this bed, it is beautiful and pretty cost efficient but in the long run NOT worth it at ALL!!
Great as a single, doesn't work so well as a double.
We bought this to use in our guest room/study. As a sofa and occasionally used single bed it is fine. The three drawers are handy for storing bedding. It does need lots of big cushions to make it comfortable as a sofa because of the hard sides and back but when it is padded it is roomy and comfortable.
It doesn't work as well when it is set up as a double bed as it is not a standard size. It doesn't take a double or queen mattress. It is designed to have two single mattresses laid across the bed. This is not comfortable because the point whe...re the two mattresses join creates a ridge and this is right under your hip. We tried putting the two mattresses laid from the head to the foot of the bed but they were too long and stuck up and out at the end of the bed. There was also a bigger gap between them. IKEA weren't very helpful when we tried to get mattresses to fit, their floor staff didn't know which mattress it was designed to take when it is extended. Bedding was also a problem as fitted sheets can't be used. We bought this because we thought it would be versatile but it is not an ideal guest bed and I now wish we had bought a good quality sofa bed instead. Looks smart, storage Lack of information, poor design
Questions & Answers
I have an ikea daybed but the slats do not come out even. One side is lower then the other. How can i make it even please
Having similar issues...at a loss as to why. Crap flimsy design.
Assembled this but the trundle part has a half inch gap when closed on the left. Right side closes against the frame just fine. Does anyone know a way to adjust it?
Please can someone tell me the true measurements of this bed? Online it states that it is 209cm long however, this seems massive. Is this correct?
