Good quality and comfortVerified ReviewerMy son loves his new bed. Very well made and fairly easy to assemble.5
Very good qualityVerified ReviewerVery good quality5
Beautiful but broken in less than a yearVerified ReviewerBeautiful colour and easy to assemble. However less than a year later (and just when we’ve finished paying off the finance loan) the bed broke at half 3 in the morning. The centre beam has dropped out, causing the slats to fall and the screw holes are damaged. The headboard is also now scraped from where the support beam has dragged down. Not what I expected after 11 months of use.1
Excellent for value and styleVerified ReviewerExcellent for value and style5
Excellent value. Easy to assemble.Verified ReviewerExcellent value. Easy to assemble. The variable mattress height is a good option.5
PoorVerified ReviewerSo noisy !!!!! Each move you make it makes noises. And they’re not quiet either. The tiniest move it makes a loud noise. Wakes my daughter up every time. Other than that there’s been no other issues. But I wouldn’t recommend buying1
Looks good but very creakyVerified ReviewerWe read the reviews and saw that some had an issue with noise but we purchased it anyway based on the reviews that were good. The bed looks lovely and I like the space underneath. We originally bought the cheaper slats as that was all that was in stock. For the first week or so there was no noise but now (we’ve had it a few months) it is so creaky when you get in and out. We thought it was the slats moving so bought the more expensive ones when they came into stock. No difference. Sadly I would not recommend this bed based on our experience.3
Sizes are oddVerified ReviewerA double UK mattress is 135cm wide and 190 cm long. This bed is 140cm wide and 200 cm long which will leave enough space between mattress and edge of the bed to look really ugly. I wouldn't recommend this bed. Any solutions for this Ikea?1
Good looking but flawedVerified ReviewerGot this bed about a year ago. Looked great but it had problems. It was difficult to assemble but we managed. The L-bracket the slats sat on bent out of shape and some of the slats broke away from the ribbon so would often fall down when bed was sat on. And then the central beam collapsed, ripping the screws out. I can't understand why it's only supported by 2 screws per side! Disappointed to say the least! Would probably work fine with one person, but with two of us it was a nightmare2
IdealVerified ReviewerGood value and neat5

Excellent product.Verified ReviewerExcellent product.4
Good qualityVerified ReviewerGood quality4
Cheap poor qualityVerified ReviewerCan't say this is worth the money. For nearly 300 pounds for a king size frame you are better putting thar money towards a quality bed All cheap chipboard and won't last long ...was maybe good years ago when imea was cheaper but these days they aren't much cheaper at all For a 300 pound investment I would put that towards a real wood quality frame The slats are also not good quality. For 45 pounds this is really too expensive for what they are ..they used to be 35 pounds For nearly 50 pounds you are buying pieces of wood which has a thin piece if ribbon holding them together stapled on to each slat with 2 cheap metal staples Please factor in paying for the extra slats that are more expensive called lonset which are more securely held together with plastic is £75 cost...extra on top of the frame All in all I wouldn't every buy this again.i have big regrets and ikea won't refund once you've taken a bed frame out the packaging and put it together2
Poor replacement for older MalmVerified ReviewerMy daughter previously had a white Malm standard double bed, which was really low profile, sturdy and perfect for her room. However, when she bought a new IKEA mattress last year, we realised that the mattress sizes had changed leaving approx a 3cm gap around the mattress, which was irritating. As a result, we gave the original lovely Malm bed away and bought the new version. This has been a real disappointment. The mattress now sits snugly in the frame, but this is the only positive thing I can say. The bed fittings are not good quality and don’t sit flush as they should, hence making it feel far less sturdy/secure than the previous one. On an aesthetic note, it also looks less classy and, despite taking up slightly less floor space than the old frame, it now seems to take over the room. Even on the lower level setting, the mattress stands way too high above the edge of the bed. Even if you prefer the height of the new version, I would still be wary of the poor quality fittings.1
Easy to buildVerified ReviewerEasy to build5
Great productVerified ReviewerThe colour is fine and comfortable bed base. Easy to put together too.5
Nice looking frame, but not very resilientVerified ReviewerLooks good, especially in a smaller room where you need bright minimalist furniture. And it was easy to put together. However, within 6 months the edges and seams of the top-end base has started to crack and warp. It seems to absorb moisture from the air and expand, revealing the wood underneath. So consider that if you plan on putting it in a room that struggles with condensation etc. I contacted Customer Services to replace the part (since buying a dehumidifier to place behind the bed), but they couldn't help.3
Great furniture!Verified ReviewerStylish and practical furniture, great value for money5

Our take on wood

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.

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 veneer?

A veneer is a thin wooden sheet fixed on things like particleboards to add a durable surface and a natural wood look – so we enjoy the many benefits of wood without using solid wood. The most common veneer types are birch, ash, oak and beech and we’ve made a special UV lacquer that helps preserve the wood's natural structure. A benefit with a slightly thicker veneer is how you can repair and sand the surface if it’s damaged to give furniture a longer and more beautiful life.
