Very glad I patiently waitedPatriciaVery glad I patiently waited for the IKEA MALM White Storage Bed, 704.048.18, to be available for purchase. As a City apartment dweller, extra storage is a necessity.
Thank you Ikea!5
Full size bedGeneGreat bed with great storage underneath.5
Great bed frame!AnonymousYou will want a low profile mattress for this. Mine is a little thick, but still it looks great. Love the hydraulic system. Tons of storage underneath! Took us forever to put it together, but we did! Love this bed!5
It would be better ifPaulIt would be better if the illustration has little more details in direction view.5
Great bedShellyThe mattress is easy to lift with the hydraulics. I love the way it looks. Assembly wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be but it is time consuming. Order a pizza, put on your comfy pants and enjoy the build.5

TornGladysI was apprehensive to purchase such an expensive item to me because of the fear of quality and assembly. After reading reviews and watching a couple of assembly videos on youtube I decided to take the plunge. Well after spending several hours I putting the bed together, one of the hydrolic lifts isn't working properly. The lift got bent or something because now everytime I lift the bed, the fan thing gets stuck and makes a cracking noise and I am afraid that over the thing might break. There is no possibility that I am taking this bed apart to return, it would take double the work for no real compensation because I really want this bed I just need the hydrolic to work properly.3
exactly what I neededMalariWas a challenging build but has been exactly what I needed for my small bedroom. Great for rooms that really require a bed go in the corner of the room as it allows easier access to all the space underneath rather than just the exposed half.5
I wish the bottom ofLEENAI wish the bottom of the storage was more than three thin boards. They are lying on the floor without any connection to the main frame of the bed. I do however like the quality of the bed frame.4
Saving a lot of space underneath!BabakGood Quaity and good price!5
Very good option!TIMBetter quality and sturdier than I expected however; it's a complete pain to assemble using only the instructions provided. Suggest you go to YouTube and find a video and invest in hex bits for your drill!5
Love the extra storageTerrieWe bought this bed because of the storage, which is great! This bed wasn’t too difficult to put together, took a little time. We separated the pieces before starting, got everything laid out and organized so it went smoother. Love having the extra storage. One con, platform bed so sometimes we hit our foot on the bottom. It’s not to difficult to lift the bed up and down. I think it’s a little pricey but we bought two because of the storage. We bought the first one November 2021, The second one, we bought in May 2022 and it had gone up in price 100.00.5
We were sad our bedMarieWe were sad our bed was out of stock! As we’re heading to the registers we stopped into the As-Is section and they had the bed frame win the color and size we needed! Turns out when you buy as-is you have dismantle! We made it through took us about an hour with many onlookers and one sweet customer that helped! The next day we assembled the frame and it went together perfectly!!! My daughter loves all the storage and how easy it is to raise up!!!5
Practical!PAULMy bed was pushed against the wall so drawers storage were not possible. This bed with pull up mattress storage is a perfect and practical solution.
The only drawback is hard to reach my stuffs closed to the headboard because of limited head room.5
Best bed frame EverNatashaI've wanted this bed for years. It has been backordered for months, and I was ecstatic when it finally became available recently. It took a few hours to put together but was super easy, and I couldn't be happier with the finished product. There's more storage than I imagined, and the lift system is incredibly high quality. I can't recommend the product enough.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 veneer?
A veneer is a thin wooden sheet attached to things like particleboard 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.
Extra storage that won't take up extra space
MALM storage 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.
