Nice, solid foundation.AmyThis was exactly what I had in mind for a simple foundation. It has solid wood sides, center brace, and slats. The cover makes it look more expensive than it is. It was also easy to assemble by myself (even though it's recommended to have 2 people). I used the tall, wood legs (Brynilen) so there's lots of storage space underneath. The only problem is that the center support leg isn't included and is out of stock. I've temporarily braced the center beam with a piece of wood while I wait for the support leg that I ordered for twice retail from eBay.5

Very happy overall!GregWe first bought a extra firm and had it for about two months. Not suggesting for people who sleep on their stomachs? Exchanged it for a plush and sleep like a baby now! Always have had plush in the past! Love th way they are packed and quality so far is great. IKEA really rocks because of the one year return policy, it takes a month or two to really adjust to a new mattress.5

works well to raise height of ikea bed frameshtb1I purchased this to raise the height of my tarva frame, which is too low to get in and out of bed. I reused the center suppor tpole but my luroy slats dont fit the espevar, so you have to use the hard slats that come with espevar. once this was done, it worked great. The instructions are by far the worst ikea instruction I've come across in 30 years! I now want to use the espevar as a stand alone bed base and I see from the reviews that I need a center support leg, not just a set of 4 legs. ikea needs to do better with this product range. its unacceptable. Meanwhile, yes, this product works great to raise the height of ike bed frames.3
DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS !!KarlaaMWhen I purchase this item I had to buy the box spring which was like it saids in the price 160 when receiving the product we had go back to purchase an additional item which was the cover for 35 dollars, we later found out yet again that there it was also missing the actual box springs that goes in the middle of the base bored to hold the mattress in place. we had to yet again run to ikea for them to tell us that it was discontinued to bring it back. So we loaded it back after assembling it and headed yet again back to ikea. After being EXTREMELY EXHAUSTED from building it and going back and forth and loading it to the truck and unloading it to ikea again we finally go to return It and received store credit .. TO THEN FIND OUT that the instructions were wrong! and that they had a different way of doing it that we had to find it on YouTube ??? after we JUST RETURN IT! and did all the work for NOTING wasted an entire day in ikea because employees are not well equipped or well informed there is ALOT of she said he said !1
Not worth the moneySorry customerBought a full bed along with this base. We were helped by an ikea employee. She wrote up the order and told us we would need a middle supporting leg. We get home to assemble, the instructions are a bit confusing. You need at least 2 people. When we finish I realize that we need a thin supporting matress to sit on top of the boards. I decided just to put the cover on. Well the bed didn't quite fit. It seems to be slightly smaller than the base and it sinks into the base. When you get on the bed it dips in the middle. I am pregnant and since the bed rises up on the sides it makes it hard to get out of bed. This was a $600 purchase, including the bed. The bed frame was $160, not including the 5 legs I had to purchase. I don't feel like spending another $60 each (2 of them) for the supporting matress. I'll use it temporarily and buy an actual bed frame elsewhere.1
OK product.....bad manualMister ReeseI have a handyman business specializing in furniture and equipment assembly. Even by IKEA standards, this 60 page manual is really bad. The start of the manual does NOT give you all the different permutations, and it should. Once the thing was finally assembled correctly, it is pretty good. But this is a BAD manual, took 3 tries, and a call to customer service to get it properly assembled.2
Really easy to put together!KibokuWas able to put it together alone in less than an hour. Very easy. Feels sturdy. Got the queen size and didn't use the middle supporting leg (Sultan) but it doesn't wobble or sink when we get in the bed. I think it should be fine. Our last IKEA bed didn't have one and lasted almost 10 years. Love it and how low profile it is since we have a small room. Definitely an improvement!4
Favorite bed base ever!BunniI love this bed base. It is exactly what it describes. My bed is at a perfect height. The grey looks clean and modern, also was easy to put over the wood base without any tears. It is tight fitting but if you are gentle, it goes on perfectly. I put this together by myself. I'm a 38yr old woman :) The slats keep air flow as described and are flat so there is zero sagging anywhere nor does the middle bar create an uncomfortable hard spot in the middle. I can cuddle my partner without any discomfort as was the case with my previous bed frame. This base allows you to create your own headboard if you'd like that is attached to your wall and changeable whenever you please. I recommend this bed base.5
Love itCarrielouWe bought the king for our memory foam mattress and it is perfect. It assembles in two pieces and is quite sturdy so it will be easier to move. We didn’t have the issue with a missing middle leg, so they must have corrected that flaw. I actually bought the middle leg just in case and now I have to return it! Love the clean design as well. Looks very nice.5
Solid frame - easy set upJoxer DailyI was skeptical because of the other reviews. However, the frame was easy to set up and very solid. It was probably the easiest ikea piece I have set up. However, I agree it was heavy in the box. I got the twin without legs and am very happy! Just wish there was the dark grey cover in stock at the store even though the website said there was. Went with light.5
KV88Recently bought it to be more cost effective. Its sturdy and it was exactly what I was looking for in a mattress base. I didn't want to by a full bed frame. As far as the components this specific item doesn't tell you that you need to buy the sultan leg because it is the base for the inside of a frame. I realized afterwards that if I had clicked on the one showing the legs and then go to the assembly tab in the middle of the page it showed everything i needed to change it to bed frame. User error on my part but overall I think it was the best buy for what i needed and especially since it was last minute.4
WARNING!ripped offIf you buy a mattress and this base you WILL need other products to complete you bed set up. So your $279 mattress (Full size) will actually cost you $584 plus tax and additional trips to the store because no where on the packaging or online or mentioned by an employee will you be told that you now need and support pole ($10) and the mattress foundation pieces ($60 ea) two for a full size. Without the support pole and the Engavagen pieces your mattress will not sit on this bed frame. So you will shell out $$$$ for a mediocre product. IKEA you have to have a better way of flagging merchandise so your customers won't hate you!!1
Utter DisappointmentVenu2001This is a bad design, with bad instruction set. The store or website doesn't tell you all the requirements. As others noted, the requirement on Sultan leg is nowhere mentioned, and you suddenly realize that after assembling the whole thing. Also, the need for extra pad to compensate for the height difference between the central support bridge and base on either side is not mentioned anywhere either, except when you read through the assembly instructions. They all add up, and you end up have a highly priced, shabby frame. What an experience, Ikea.1
SULTAN support leg needed: IKEA don"t tell youtbukbed is fine. Almost finished construction and couldn't find the support leg anywhere. Eventually figured out that it is not sold with the bed, nor mentioned anywhere as a requirement. If you want to use legs with this bed, you need to but SULTAN in addition.2
Buyer’s remorseMisty77I wish I had never bought this bed. I would return it if it weren’t such a hassle. I’ve experienced the same issues as other reviews: sultan leg not included and awkward fit. Not only did I have to make a second trip to ikea to buy the sultan leg, but I now have to wait three weeks to buy a mattress support (not in stock). Meanwhile my current mattress sags. After purchasing all of the needed additions, I could have bought a much higher quality bed. Completely unsatisfied.1
Be aware of the dimensionsAlp_BOSthis frame's dimension is not compatible with standard full size mattress.1
one lonely leg Sultan LEG REALLY IKEA?lucy003IKEA should have added this to the would you also like to buy .. you CAN NOT use this without ordering the SUPPORT LEG and its separate!1
