Looks great - design flawed.
Have had the bed a couple of years and it's had minimal use as my daughter is away at uni most of the time. Although it looks great, the legs are so poorly designed that it sways and squeaks and is nearly unusable. At the moment we have it supported on piles of books to give it stability. Waiting for a response from IKEA on how to fix it. Do not recommend.
Pretty, noisy & wobbly
We bought this bed just over a year ago for our daughter's 18th birthday. She chose it based on looks, price & having slept in a great IKEA bed for her previous 15 years. It was fairly straightforward to assemble, however the constant wobbling & squeaking noise is absolutely unbearable. We have tried to take it apart & reassemble it however there is no way to get rid of the noise. She wakes every time she turns over at night. I am just so disappointed that I only saw the IKEA 12 month return policy after 13 months! Do not buy this bed.
Squeaky noisy unstable
We have had this bed a little over a year. Its squeaks and wobbles! It's been undone a re put together with foam washer but still it squeaks. If you don't make love-it might be the bed for you. But it wakes you up at night just rolling over!
Be is supported only by the 4 legs and 8 screws. It is gravity based assembly. ITS A JOKE!
A bed for a princess.
I bought this bed after having owned two other metal beds. I chose the metal frame because the cheap wood beds looked like they would easily chip or break and I wanted a bed that was easy to clean under.. I chose the Lonset slatted base because it looked more robust. It took a while to put together and is very solid. The bed comes with a steel mid beam. I would have preferred the queen size which I'm used to because the double is a little shorter. Overall, I'm very happy with the bed and the price.
Questions & Answers
How to stop the bed from squeaking
You can't. We tried everything - bolts through the legs - packing the legs to make the seal tighter etc etc. It sometimes worked for a few days but then we would be back to square one. The design is flawed. IKEA refused any support at all - I was simply asking for advice on how to stop it swaying and squeaking and they just kept saying it was out of warrantee or whatever. No interest in supporting the customer left with a poorly designed product. We sadly ditched it ( as it was a pretty bed) and bought something that worked.
Thank you response. Probably what we will end up doing and purchasing a different bed. Ours will be it of warranty too I guess after 2 years.
