Product details

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.

Narrow bed, difficult to assemble Verified ReviewerWarning! This bed is 10cm's narrower than a standard single which I don't like, it is also 10cm's longer which may benefit taller people the mattresses are very firm. Ridiculous to assemble, I like building flat pack furniture but this was very annoying to put together and could have been made much easier. I think these beds should be a lot cheaper for what they are ( I'd say they are at least £100 overpriced)2
Excellent, versatile bed(s)Verified ReviewerSturdy, well designed beds that connect together safely for use as a double bed. Stack well for a space saving single. Comfortable mattresses.5
Eventually squeaky bedsVerified ReviewerThe concept is good, low beds, stackable. It ‘was’ good but it’s eventually turned very squeaky… and we don’t know how to fix it. So when you lie down and just roll over, or turn, the bed squeaks and it’s noisy! I’ve tried to ring customer support to enquire if we can purchase the wooden panels on its own to try fix it (I assume that’s the problem), but they said it’s not possible, only to buy the whole bed again (which I wouldn’t since I know the potential problem). If Ikea customer service has any suggestion or fix to ‘how to unsqueak’ the bed, that would be amazing. Thanks4
Stacking bedsVerified ReviewerIt would be a great idea if let customers have their choice buying single bed rather than twin beds.5
Beware mattress sizes are not UKVerified ReviewerThese seem to be decent quality for the price, and pretty easy to put together, however what is not clear in the description is that this is not a standard UK bed size, even though IKEA's mattress buying guide states that all their current beds are UK size. Having followed this guidance and purchased the beds and mattresses I discovered them to not fit, but on returning to the store they told me I couldn't return them as I'd already built one of the beds and I'd have to call IKEA Customer Services. Customer Service of course told me that they can't help me and I should speak to the store... So if anyone is thinking of buying this I'll happily sell them my brand new set, just be sure you have EU mattresses!1
Concept of this is brilliant!Verified ReviewerThe beds look incredible in our spare room and we have the flexibility to have it as a single or a double which is great, the only issue is that I bought the mattress as advised and they don’t fit in the frame properly. Doesn’t affect the comfort but is annoying to look at!4
Perfect fit for our room, the kids love them.Verified ReviewerThe beds are easy to make, all parts are of good quality, perfect size but a standard single size mattress over hangs the side and is a bit short.5
Verified ReviewerJust right! Sturdy and fitted existing Ikea mattresses very well. Excellent buy. I am not good at DIY but managed to put them together after delivery to the room of our choice. Grandchildren love them!5
Very handy and practical designVerified ReviewerPerfect 2 beds for a small bedroom, easy to move for cleaning underneath. A bit low but that is the compromise if wanting light weight. Lovely to sleep in. Got used to it (and the mattress) straight away :-).5
Excellent first bed for childVerified ReviewerWe bought these beds to have as the first full size bed for our 2 1/2 year old, and a spare for guests. Stylish and solid.5
Handy designVerified ReviewerI like that this is stackable to make a single bed or you can have two low singles or combine to make a double bed. As it can be combined to make a double, one length of each bed frame is quite low. This leads to mattresses being able to slip a bit on the low side. Would be nice if there was some sort of moveable piece in the frame to hold the mattress in on the low side when being used as a single.4
Perfect for our requirementVerified ReviewerThe beds were bought for our two young grandchildren when they visit. The room is not large so when they left the ability to stack them was a real plus.5
Turned out to be really usefulVerified ReviewerThis has been nicely thought out, handy as a normal height single or low twin or double. One side of each bed (opposite sides) is lower so that you don't have that wooden ridge in the middle thing going on when using as a double.5
Fits neatly in small roomVerified ReviewerExcellent beds; slipping one on top of the other for space saving when not in use and being very low is a huge benefit in English size rooms. They have not been slept on so can’t comment as to comfort. We purchased for infrequent guests.5

A bed that's made for people on the move

Whether it's for study, work, love or just budget, moving and adapting to a new home is something that has become a part of life for many of us. It makes sense then that our furniture should be able to follow along with us.

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.


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 and renewable. 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.

Function solution

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.
