Product details

The storage space under the bed holds everything from extra duvets and pillows to seasonal clothes. Or why not the ironing board?

Complete with boxes and dividers to make it easier to keep track of smaller things. STUK, SKUBB and STORSTABBE storage series have items which are perfectly suited for this.

You can sit up comfortably in bed thanks to the high headboard – just prop some pillows behind your back and you will have a comfortable place to read or watch TV.

This versatile bed frame will look great with your choice of textiles and bedroom furniture.

It’s easy to access your things under the bed thanks to the integrated lift mechanism. Simply pull the strap and the base lifts smoothly and easily.

Base boards keep your items off the floor – helping them to stay clean and dust-free.

Wow just love itVerified ReviewerThought I’d made a big mistake buying this bed following reading the reviews on how to build it, but hey no issues whatsoever , easy to follow instructions and the bed is so well made and tonnes of storage, really pleased5
Great bed - assembly takes quite a long timeVerified ReviewerI really wanted this ottoman bed. Brilliant idea and it has loads of storage space. It’s comfortable and doesn’t creak anywhere. We had set aside 2 hours to assemble it (having made up wardrobes and drawers so got quite fast as it) but it took closer to 4.4
good bedVerified Reviewergood bed5

Unable to open the ottoman after a year Verified ReviewerBought this bed over a year ago , first 6 months worked great , now almost impossible to open , the strap doesnt have enough length to get a good grip to pull. And the lock is very stiff. If I'd of known this was going to be the case I would never have bought this base... its not a cheap option from ikea and we believed the quality would last... as a result I really don't think the quality matches the price... we're now searching for a new bed base. 3
Broken items and awful customer service Verified ReviewerI purchased 4 items from the Malm range. Upon assembly, we noticed the drawer was broken at the corner, on assembly of the ottoman bed, the hydrolics don’t work! Defeating the purpose of a lifting bed. I sent pics and emailed straight away, I had no response. I spoke to a customer advisor who said someone had been trying to call me, I didn’t have any missed calls! He said he would pick up the case as the person dealing with it was absent from work, I’ve heard nothing and it’s been 2 weeks… this is the first time I’ve purchased from IKEA and NEVER again!1
Love my bed!Verified ReviewerEasy to assembly.5

A great, smart storage bedVerified ReviewerWe knew a Malm bed was excellent as we have had one before. Very strong and good looking, but wanted ottoman storage too. This bed is perfect, very deep base accommodating a lot of stuff! Easy lift and accessibility.5
Nice simple design, practical bed!Verified ReviewerNice simple design, practical bed! Game changer for storage! Definitely a good buy!4
BrilliantVerified ReviewerGreat quality and relatively straightforward to assemble, can recommend5
We bought 3! They are a great way of storing stuff which otherwise would clutter your home!Verified ReviewerThe Beds take a good part of a day to build but if like us you buy several, after the 1st one, it gets easier. You needs lots of space to build these and the mechanisms can be tricky. It definitely is easier with 2 people, although I managed building one myself. My slight grumble is that the lower corners of the bed frame can catch you leg when passing and a better design would be to round these off by design. Ikea do sell plastic corner guards and these are worth adding to your order. When made the beds are great and swallow your storage.4
Great bedVerified ReviewerQuality bed , well built , designed. Straight forward instructions to assemble and final finished product was great.5
Wish I'd bought this ages ago!Verified ReviewerWow! What an huge amount of storage - huge and deep with no nuisance beams in the middle. I have no loft or garage, so storage is a constant struggle, so when replacing my daughter's king size bed, we opted for this as it matches her furniture - and we couldn't be more thrilled with it! In fact, if/when Ikea offer this in the washed oak which matches my bedroom, I will replace my bed for one of these. It took my 24 year old daughter and I (a 51 year old female) about 3 to 4 hours to put this together so wasn't too bad. She doesn't have a lot of spare space in her bedroom, so was a bit of a squeeze to build it, but we managed in the end. Had a slight panic when we couldn't put the frame down as it asks you to in the instructions, but after a quick google, you just need the weight on it. We would never have got the mattress up on the open bed in order to put it down! All in all, really happy!5
Nice bed/not great instructionsVerified ReviewerI put this bed up by myself as a 26 year old female (for reference) it took me hours even with a drill so I would advise not using a screwdriver as you’ll be there all day.The instructions IKEA provide are not great at all and have a few mistakes so be aware of this … if you are struggling I recommend you to go to YouTube and watch a video of it being put up… this will help massively. I also recommend putting together the supporting frame first ( the last part of the instructions) if you have limited space this will be much easier for you. And lastly to double check everything is the correct way round the first time as it’s an easy mistake to make and the screw thread ruins easily having to change things later on. Overall so far I really like the bed and how it looks however I am only one week in so hopefully this continues.4
BrilliantVerified ReviewerA brilliant bed, easy to assemble with straight forward instructions, such a space safer and loads of room inside the bed.5

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 constructed board?

We use constructed boards when manufacturing many of our pieces of furniture, such as tables and wardrobes. They are light yet still stable and strong. Each board has a frame made of chipboard, fibreboard or solid wood, while the inside is a honeycomb filling structure made of mostly recycled paper, which is extra durable thanks to its special construction. The board is then covered with a protective paint, foil or veneer depending on the style wanted.

Function solution

Extra storage that won't take up extra space

MALM ottoman bed lets you turn the space you already use for sleeping into a smart place for storing. The gas piston and spring system make it easy and safe to open and close the bed without putting strain on your back. And that means you don't have to be super strong to get some super storage.
