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.

Finally a good nights sleep…MichaelThis was the bed frame we were looking for. Our small space needs to be efficient and this was the bed of choice. 19” of clear under bed storage. The storage was expected and needed. What wasn’t expected was how supportive and comfortable this setup was without a box spring. This was not something that took some time to discover. It was instant relief and much needed after a late night of assembly. I’m not sure how long it’s supposed to take to complete the construction… but give yourself some extra time if you’re a perfectionist and working in a tight space. Best choice of bed though. Just a heads up, if you’re thinking about the purchase of this bed, don’t wait. It seems to go up every year. 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
Great bed, lots of storage LariaEasy to assemble and very sturdy!5
Perfect for a storage bed KaylaThis is the second time purchasing the this bed frame. The first time was the “Full” size and I was sad to give it up when I got married. This allows the storage of all of the odd items one wants to keep hidden away from children or pets or even just for one’s own sanity. The lest frame lasted almost 7 years before passing it on to my niece who is still very much loving it 2.5 years later. It has survived being in 6 different moves and still great function with the small love marks here and there. 5
I like the storage and the way it open.ImanI like the storage and the size.4
Strap to open bed should have a loop for better grip ClaudiaBed is nice, and for the first few months opened and closed no problem. After a while though the spring on the lock to keep the bed closed won’t open no matter how much we pull the strap. Went to IKEA, had them send me 2 replacement spring/pin locks at no charge and after replacing it worked ok for a couple months and then back to being impossible to open. Strap should have a loop to get a better grip on it instead of a flat strap that is harder to pull. Not worth the hassle, honestly. 2

A perfect bed for the $$MaryThis bed is perfect in a small apartment with little storage. It took longer to assemble than I expected but in the end it is worth it!!!!5
Great BedRegina L.Came out great a lot of steps but easy to put together. Just missing the last few pieces.4
Excellent conceptTamaraBed hides all our storage boxes. Great for small rooms. It’s surprisingly easy to assemble.5
Great storage!!TracyMy daughter loves this bed-great storage!! The only drawback is that I had to hire Taskrabbit to assemble and that was expensive!!!5
Great bedMarkThis bed extends all the way to the floor providing storage underneath. It also keeps the animals out from under the bed. It was pretty easy to assemble but I had to partially take it apart when I discovered I had the sides on the wrong side. I had to have it delivered, since some of the boxes are very long. Also due to the weight, I needed a second adult to get the boxes to the second floor. Once assembled, the bed is great and coupled with a new mattress, I really like it and I’m glad I purchased it.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, fiberboard 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 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.
