Malm Bed with DrawersCarolynGood value, good assembly result, great storage options
Lasts but not perfectMerylI bought my Malm bed with drawers eight years ago (yes, and just writing my review now). I'd start with, it's lasted through two moves, one of which was long distance, and the platform itself has been great and long-lasting.
Now the catches. The drawers under the bed are not nearly so durable. Two of the drawers on mine broker (the wheels) which marks to my mind a weakness in their design. I've replaced them (finally) but I will say that IKEA no longer makes the color I originally bought so I'm going to be doing some restaining.
Second, the veneer has been pulling away on one side of the bed, slowly, for years. It's not great. Be mindful about these details. And, it certainly isn't the easiest piece of IKEA furniture I've ever put together, but it's not the hardest one, either.
Definitely do this with a friend, if only to help stabilize the different pieces, unless you have really long arms.
Bed frameMonicaJust love it!
Good bedKyraBought this for my son who's getting his own place.. this replaces the full size that he's had for 17 yrs. Previous bed lasted & held up well. Very happy with purchasing again.
Good bed, storage drawers meh!CaroleWe currently have 3 Malm beds in our home, 2 king, one full, 2 with drawers, one without. We used to have a queen in one of our previous homes too. I wish the drawers were easier to pull out when filled & wish the bed had some sort of "top", as the top is effectively open & of course because of that collects, dust, lint, whatever, on top of whatever items you keep in the drawer, so you have to keep whatever is in the drawer covered to minimize the debris that collects over time.
Product qualityKehindeThe bed is sturdy and looks really nice. Except that assembly took a while. Had to watch a youtube video for additional guidance.
Great bedAndresI love the bed, great look and very comfortable.
Excellent bed frameJohnWe’ll made and has excellent supports.
8 year updateRonakBed continues to be strong, sturdy, no squeaking, no warping. Would recommend and will be buying a second one.
Its ok butJairoThe only issue is the luroy in the full bed, very tricky to put on the bed.
Great bed for the money.VGreat bed for the money.
Nice and space saver bed!DianaWe bought this bed ten years ago, and it’s been a great purchase. The bed is strong, and when I say strong, believe me, we have five children, and they like to jump into the bed with us. The drawers are easier to open and close, a lot of space. I’m thinking now of replacing it with a beige color!! I truly recommend it!
NoisyAnthonyIt doesn't matter what type of slats you use, this thing will creak.
Really wanted to love this but...WaverlyWe have broken 2 of these bed frames within the last year. After it broke the first time, I wanted to give it a second chance so we bought another one. Both of them broke because the metal bar that runs down the middle literally ripped out of the base... And they broke from us getting in and out of bed (which you would think would be typical wear and tear). We aren't large people, although I'm not sure if it's the king-sized mattress we have that makes it hard for the frame to support its weight over time...? Regardless, I'm disappointed that we've spent ~$1000 total on 2 bed frames that couldn't hold up. It's a great design and I wanted to love it because of that, but I would not recommend buying this product. I think it's made too cheaply to justify spending ~$500 on it.
Malm bedNicoleWe changed all our beds to this bed. Great quality for the price

Looks fine but bad qualityKaterynaI have always heard from different people that IKEA furniture quality is bad, but I haven’t faced it myself until yesterday. We went to sleep and went woke up. There was a big crack on the bed head…how come…
It seems you can break it with only one finger, so cheap the quality is, we also got 4 storage boxes, so the total was $600, it’s not worth it at all. I wish I could return it but I already threw away the box.
Our MALM experience.LeonardA simple bed. Well constructed and solid. We love those slatted matteess supports.
