When stacked, these 2 beds become a single bed or sofa. Unstacked, you get a double bed, corner sofa or spare bed for sleepovers. And, if you need space for yoga, just stack them again.
You can quickly convert the stacked beds into a double bed, twin beds or corner sofa.
The lightweight frames are easy to lift and move.
The compact design is perfect for tight spaces or under low ceilings, so you can make the most of your available space.
The stacked beds stand steady since the upper bed has small plastic feet which fit into holes on the lower bed.
Untreated pine is a sustainable material with natural variations which gives every piece of furniture a unique look. With glazing paint, oil or paint, you can easily make the surface more durable – and your furniture more personal.
Slatted bed base is included.
Mattress and bedlinen are sold separately.
Can be used with up to 13 cm thick mattresses.
2 straps with press studs prevent the beds from sliding apart when they are next to each other.
May be completed with FIXA stick-on floor protectors; protect the underlying surface against wear.

Great stackable bed for spacePankajGreat stackable bed for space saving and ideal for guests room. Easy to assemble and value for money.5
Unrepairable damageSERENA M.One of the pine legs split down a critical join when an adult sat on the bed. Ikea does not have a spare part. Glueing the leg will not give it enough strength to warrant repair. Thus a waste. Did not last the test of time.2

Utåker Single BedsGeorgiaGreat for co-sleeping with my 4yo child. Our second child will use the second bed when they’re ready to transition. Great they can be pushed together and it’s flush. Love that feature so much.5
Better for daybeds than effective single bedsSHAILABetter for daybeds than effective single bed. Not for daily use3
Excellent choiceAlinaSo happy with this purchase. Truly sturdy and great functionality. Slight negative is that only the “cheaper” thinner mattresses fit if you want to stack it. We wanted the better quality ones, so we store one of the mattresses elsewhere when we have them stacked.5
Great bedsarahGreat bed for the kids. It is going to last them for the rest of their lives. Changing from 1 to 2 single beds and then the option to make it a king bed once they get older is amazing.5
Absolutely superbSineadJust what I needed for over night guests and kids sleeps overs. Easy to assemble and great for kids play room as a day bed when set up! Can’t fail it.5
CheapLouisaIt’s cheap, but the quality is not good as I expected.3
Not worth the costLeanneBy the time you add the cost of these 2 bases us mattresses these end up pretty pricey. Not that impressed with the standard and probably will replace within the year.2
Great space saving bedsJohnGreat space saving beds5
Was easy to put togetherUrsulaWas easy to put together and it is just what I wanted. It sits neat and tidy as a daybed for most of the time but then turns into two beds when I have guests. I also bought two round bolster cushions to finish the look.5

Wood is the material most commonly associated with IKEA furniture, and for good reasons. It’s renewable, recyclable, durable, ages beautifully and it is an important part of our Scandinavian design heritage.
At IKEA we believe that sourced in responsible way, wood is a key change driver for climate mitigation. In 2012, we set a goal that by 2020 our wood would be from more sustainable sources. We are happy to announce that we have reached this goal and today, more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
That's why IKEA product developer Ina Klepper and designer Henrik Preutz looked to create a bed that could move homes multiple times and adapt to any decor or size of room while becoming a double or a single just as easily.
It seems like a big task, but for Ina, Henrik and the rest of the design team behind UTÅKER bed, it was just a question of drawing inspiration from their own lives.
Made for a generation on the move
Whether you love or hate the word "millennials" it's no secret that life for many people born in the 80's and early 90's is different from earlier generations. Fixed homes, jobs and neighbourhoods are just not the set paths they once were, as people travel more, look to gain meaningful experiences, and seek to have a lighter environmental footprint. Falling into this age group herself, Ina found that traditional beds didn't fit her or her friend's lives in the way that they could.
"A lot of the time beds and daybeds can be pretty heavy and are not so easy to move from one space to another," Ina says, "and to be honest you probably only want to put them together once."
Not exactly ideal for people who might be moving home often, or who might have changing living arrangements.
"So we came up with this idea of a stackable bed, which could be easily assembled and taken apart again for moving, while also being made from solid wood so it would be long lasting," Ina says.
From design floor to apartment door
The design floor at IKEA of Sweden in Älmhult is nothing if not busy. Amongst the buzz and energy of new products taking shape, the UTÅKER design team managed to tape off 25 square metres of floor space to stand in as an apartment, and came up with two people called Dieter and Hanna to live there, while they worked out what would be good for them.
"We had the idea that she lived in this small apartment while he was travelling a lot and they were only together on the weekends," Ina explains. "To fit that lifestyle we designed the bed to work as a single with both bedframes stacked on top of each other during the week to save room, then sit side by side to become a double when Dieter came home."
For friends or colleagues the bed also can be separated to make two single beds just as easily.
"Our second thought was that since they only had a small place they couldn't fill it with too much stuff," Ina goes on. "We wanted the bed to fill as many furniture roles as possible," She says. "So we made sure that it could work as a sofa, seating for casual dining or if you have a weird shaped room, you can just move both pieces around into any combination to fit as you like."
Lastly was the idea that the bed could be adapted to fit any decor or personality.
"We tried to keep the bed as minimal as possible and not waste any material when making it," Ina says. "It's really functional without any frills so you can adapt it how you want. You could paint it as bright as you like, or keep it clean and stripped back. If you wanted to add a leather handle or something just go for it. It's your clean canvas to do what you want."
So for those moving to small homes, in (or out) with partners, or who just want to add personality to their furniture, we hope UTÅKER bed helps you live and move all the easier.
Forests are critical for life on earth
Forests contribute to maintaining balance in the atmosphere, purify the air that we breathe and are part of the water cycle. They nourish wildlife biodiversity and provide homes for indigenous communities who depend on forests for their livelihoods. 90% of plant and animal species living on the planet need forests to survive. They provide sources of food, fuel, timber and many other ecosystem services that we rely upon.
Sourcing approximately 19 million m3 of roundwood per year from some 50 countries, IKEA has a significant impact on the world’s forests and the timber industry and a huge responsibility to positively influence how wood is sourced. Responsible wood sourcing and forest management ensure that the needs of people dependent on forests are met, that businesses can work sustainably, that forest ecosystems are protected and biodiversity is enhanced.
100% wood from more sustainable sources
At IKEA, we work with strict industry standards to promote responsible forestry. We don’t allow any wood in our supply chain from forest areas that are illegal or contain high conservation values or from forest areas with social conflict.
Before starting to work with IKEA, suppliers must demonstrate that they meet IKEA critical requirements on wood sourcing. IKEA requires all suppliers to source wood from more sustainable sources (FSC-certified or recycled wood). All suppliers are audited regularly and non-compliant suppliers are required to implement immediate corrective actions.
By working together with our suppliers, we are proud to announce that we have reached our more sustainable sources goal, which we set out to achieve by 2020. Today more than 98% of the wood used for IKEA products is either FSC-certified or recycled.
IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030
As pressure on the world’s forests and the surrounding eco-systems increases due to unsustainable agriculture, the expansion of infrastructure and illegal logging, it is time to take an even more holistic approach to protect and support these important resources for generations to come.
The IKEA Forest Positive Agenda for 2030 set out to improve forest management, enhance biodiversity, mitigate climate change and support the rights and needs of people who depend on forests across the whole supply chain and drive innovation to use wood in even smarter ways. The agenda focuses on three key areas:
• Making responsible forest management the norm across the world.
• Halting deforestation and reforesting degraded landscapes.
• Driving innovation to use wood in smarter ways by designing all products from the very beginning to be reused, refurbished, remanufactured, and eventually recycled.
We accomplish more by working together
For many years, IKEA has partnered with businesses, governments, social groups and non-governmental organisations to fight forest degradation and deforestation and increase the volume and availability of wood from responsibly managed forests both for our own supply chain and beyond.
We are on a journey to improve global forest management and make responsible wood sourcing the industry standard, contributing to building resilient forest landscapes and improve biodiversity.
What is solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favourite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful, renewable and recyclable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.
Life happens, it’s okay!
Moving furniture around tends to result in a few scratches here and there. That’s why we made UTÅKER in unfinished solid wood. The bed is easy to move, in and between homes, and small stains or scratches can be removed with an eraser, fine sandpaper or paint thinner. Paint it right away for an extra protective layer, or after a while as a touch-up. That way you can enjoy your bed for a long time, even after the wear and tear that comes with a well-used piece of furniture.
