I am not a DIY person but these instructions were amazing, step by step and pictures and all screws in numbered bags, my son in law took 2 hrs on his own and I even done the draws and all tracks, not used the bed yet, hence the 4 stars but it seems solid and wood is lovely and chunky. Never do reviews but had to this time. Well done ikea xx

A fantastic day bed except for the assembly challenges

My loving partner initially wanted a sofa bed to be purchased and then later placed into one of the bedrooms. However when looking at the study and the lounge; they each had a couch. Instead after some research and convincing, I managed to get this product and also to have it delivered because the dimensions of the boxes did not fit our Honda CRV. ...
Purchased in November 2019 at IKEA ACT, Canberra for $757.00.
stylish but a bit hard
We purchased this as a spare bed, but it became a regular use bed. The bed is beautifully constructed and good quality and stylish. The mattresses are less so. They are quite thin and hard. There is an option to purchase thicker mattresses, but if you ever use it as a day bed and have to stack the thicker mattresses, it will be to high.

Best one in the market
Since we just moved in from overseas, we had to buy a bed and also a sofa which we put in our living room. So, we searched everywhere and examined thoroughly every option, to be both chic and comfortable for longterm use. This is the one. You sleep on a bed with a firm mattress and sit on a double mattress which is nicely designed. The hardest part is the assembly though, which took me 5 to 6 hours in 2 days and that is why I gave it a 4 star.

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.
Ikea Day bed - really good
Takes ages to build but definitely worth it.
We have it in our spare room, and use it for guests. I have bought a foam mattress topper to put on top as the thin mattresses didn't cut it. Just have to store it when the topper isn't being used.
Haven't had any issues with the slats. However I have pulled the trundle out too far a couple of times, but I'm not sure if this has happened because I missed something when building it!!
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.
Love this day bed. Bought it for my toddler and so glad we did! Great for a day bed or child's bed. Had a couple stay in it 2 weeks and it was fine but any longer and it would of been too hard. Perfect for a wee one. And will come in handy when she's old enough for sleep overs with friends. It's huge when extended!
Bought this for my daughter and she loves it. She uses the bed during the day as a sofa, hanging out with friends, watching TV or doing homework on. Great addition of pull-out bed underneath and as storage. It is very solid. Easy to build.
Functional bed for sunroom/guest bedroom
This daybed was a pain in the neck to start assembling at 9:30pm one night after a long day at Ikea - our fault. Allow plenty of time to assemble this and it will keep sturdy for many years. Fairly easy to slide out to extend bed so long as your carpet is not too thick. Storage in the drawers is brilliant - great for storing spare sheets/blankets etc. As mentioned in other reviews, the slats are very weak and just crawling across the bed can cause a slat to break - gives the guests quite a scare! Ikea have been good about it each time we have h...ad to return a broken one for a replacement. Perhaps a thicker mattress would stop this from occurring but we just purchased the two fairly thin foam mattresses that were on the display bed. Lovely looking frame that suits any decor.
great if you have a small space
I bought this bed frame about one and half years ago. It still looks great. I especially love its drawers because my unit is small and I have a lot of stuff and no place to put them!!!! this bed frame really helped me with organising the extra sheets and etc. It is just a little small to sleep is you need a lot of space otherwise great product.
Very clever. We are about to buy a 3rd one!
The concept is very clever. We bought our first one about 6 years ago. Whilst the stats can break when the bed is pulled out to be king size, we got around this by putting a piece of ply under the mattress. Ikea also replaced all slats that had broken, at no cost. The ability to turn a single bed into a king bed has been fantastic when the kids are sick and you need to be near them at night, when guests come to stay and when the kids have friends for sleep overs. The storage is also fantastic. The bed is a bit hard to pull out on carpet, ...but I just get one of the kids to give me a hand. With a person on each end, it is not too hard. When the toddler comes out of his cot, he too will have a Hemnes day bed. You are paying for the design....not the quality.
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!!
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?
