Defective, don’t buy!
A professional technician assembled this bed for me. After about a year and a half the bed started to creak and wobble horribly! We adjusted the screws but that made no difference. The warranted had run out after one year. So convenient,right? I am stuck with a rubbish bed which I cannot even sell as a second-hand bed if I want to be fair to the buyers. I will have to throw it away! Don’t buy!
Purchased in December 2017 for $115.00.
Creaks like mad
Assembly was awful hard to reach screws
Spend the extra money and buy somewhere else
I don’t recommend this bed at all poorly made
Purchased in December 2020 for $119.00.
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.
Wobbles and squeaks in due time.
Purchased for my daughter and maybe 6 to 8 months later the base legs squeaking and wobbling and cannot be fixed due to design. Nice looking bed but flaw in design.
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.
Our situation was the same as 1237cat. Ikea offered no solution but my daughter is happy to persevere so she is still using it. Such a shame but then again it was a pretty cheap bed, so I guess you get what you pay for...
