Really good day bed
I have had this for a while and from the really easy install to how it has held up over the years I would highly recommend it to anyone on the look out.
Great for small space !
Beautiful looking bed - looks amazing in the room - great storage !
Mattresses very firm but it’s perfectly ok.
Took ages to put together but everything from Ikea does !
Would definitely but another one
Purchased in May 2019 at IKEA for $700.00.

Great all rounder
Love love love this piece. I was lucky enough to find one in the as is section in the Dove Grey colour. Absolutely nothing wrong with it. Purchased the harder memory foam mattresses to go with it. Looks great all compact in the daybed setup in my home office, easily converts to a King Bed.
Great choice! We have a small bedroom and my husband and I open it and use it as a king bed every night! We've been using it for almost a year and we're so happy with the quality and practicality of it!
very nice and efficient
for the price we pay, it is probably worth of it, bed and sofa easy to install and expand.
however, if you are looking for something very soft, probably not a good idea.
Solid piece of furniture. Time consuming, but not complicated. Electric screwdriver a must!!!
The bed is solid. It took 3hrs to build. I followed the instructions with no difficulty. The only head scratching moment was when I noticed that the hinges were turned opposite to each other, but that is to allow the drawer slates to slot in to each other.
The bed is heavy. I cannot move it without removing the drawer first so bare that in mind when choosing the location prior to building.
I have built a number of IKEA pieces and this was the first time using an electric screwdriver. It saved my hands from blisters, and loads of time. I...also feel that the bed is stronger as a result. I would recommend the Malfors 12" matresses, rather than the 10" mattress it comes with. It's an extra €20 each but worth in the long run. I built it alone. There were times when an extra hand would have helped, obviously, but its more than possible.
Perfect for lounging around on with lots of pillows or a good nights sleep . Lots of wonderful stora
Assembly took approximately five hours. If you used a power drill it would be faster but it is not necessary. Easy to follow instructions . Just take your time and look each set of instructions over carefully . A wonderful product . We were totally satisfied .
Perfect for our needs
I'm a single mom with a 10yr old boy. I chose this bed because occasionally he has a friend sleep over, but otherwise there is no room for 2 beds. I elected to get this over a bunk bed, and am so happy that I did. We have hardwood floors, so I have no issues rolling the bottom out. The extra storage provided by the drawers is great, and the bed itself is very sturdy. Set up is indeed a big job, but if you're familiar with other IKEA furniture (I've already built book cases and desks) and you approach it carefully, it's not difficult. I did...it myself with a little help from my son, but it does take several hours and is best split over 2 shorter work sessions rather than one long one, in my opinion. Just watch the diagrams very carefully and work systematically. The trundle portion seems ideal for a child but I suspect it is less suitable for an adult, unless you keep some pre-cut, fitted plywood handy to put on top of the slats. Only drawback is that you can't seem to store the 2nd mattress inside while it is tucked in, so you need to have room to store the 2nd mattress somewhere else.
A Hemnes triumph!
We bought the bed frame with two Malfors foam mattresses. It has worked perfectly for us. The thing to watch out for is to avoid using mattresses that are too thick or too big and beddings that are not a good fit.
We liked it so much, we bought a second one!
We bought one of these beds for my daughter because her room was rather small. With the 3 huge drawers, we did not need to put a chest of drawers in the room, which would have been crowded. Plus, there was just enough room in there to open the bed up whenever we had a friend or two sleep over.
We have two mattresses that we bought from Ikea. When it's a daybed, the mattresses stack one upon the other, and a single, standard twin sheet fits over both of them perfectly (as I understand, we do not have the thinnest mattress, but I don't know i...f we have the thickest one, or a medium sized one). When it is pulled out, we lay the mattresses side by side, in the same direction as the daybed. We use two standard twin sheets to cover them because length-wise they are perfect, but they are a little baggy on the single width mattresses, which are thinner than regular matresses, so we just tuck the baggy parts under and it has never been a problem so far. My daughter loves the bed and it's very comfortable to sleep on. In fact, I have 3 girls. At some point, the younger two decided to room together. We put them in a slightly bigger secondary bedroom, got rid of the long dresser, and purchased another one of these beds. Since they sit against the wall, we were able to put the beds on two consecutive walls, with just enough distance between them so that both can be pulled out at the same time. It is fantastic! We've had sleepovers with 5-6 children and everyone was comfortable. The multi functionality of this bed is amazing. In fact, one of my parents recently moved in with us and took my oldest daughter's bedroom, which is next to the bathroom. She has been sharing a room with her 2 sisters for a few weeks, but that front bedroom is still empty, so we are planning on buying a 3rd one of these to put back in that small room for her. I haven't encoutered any downside yet, except that sleeping side by side, one person is "locked in" next to the wall. The kids have slept in both directions when the bed is open. I've never gotten any complaints from them about the ridge, but I haven't ever tried it as a full- sized adult.
Such smart engineering. I get a huge size bed and still have lots of storage space below! The Hemnes daybed is perfect for my daughter! It is super comfortable and looks beautiful in her room. When she is sick I open it up and I sleep with her. It turns into a bed that is bigger than a King size and very comfortable. We purchased 2 twin foam mattresses from IKEA (the thicker ones). The beds fit together so tightley that I do not have the problem described by another reviewer, we do not feel that ridge gap at all because they are tightly together.
Beautiful, Comfortable, bigger than a King size bed and lots of storage space.
Questions & Answers
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?
