Unclear instructions!Zach W.Frustrating build experience--but not enough to return the product. Step 19 on Page 15 does not give enough information. You are supposed to attach it to the bedframe but the instructions make it seem it will be used later. Very disappointed in the subtle instructions. Step 20 on Page 15 is the reason I will never recommend this product to other people. Read the instruction manuals before buying and decide if the beautiful design is really worth the pain.
So BeautifulKristy O.Super simple to put together (even with my torn ACL). Took me 3 hours alone so I don’t know what some people are talking about saying it’s “so difficult.” Been waiting 2 years to buy this bed and I’m so glad I did!
The Nordli king bed & headboard set is a visually appealing and sturdy piece of furniture, but it lacks lengthwise center support & has some discrepancies and errors in the headboard mounting instructions.Greg E.Overall, we’re happy with the Nordli king bed & headboard. It looks great in our bedroom, and is overall a quality, sturdy piece of furniture. However, there are a few flaws:
1) The frame lacks lengthwise center support, resulting in a noticeable dip in the middle. My wife and I are not large by any means, and we ended up needing to construct a center support ourselves to resolve this issue.
2) the mounting instructions for the headboard wall supports contain an objective error. They show a mounting distance measurement of 30cm from center, but the supports on the back of the headboard are only 21.5cm from center. Following the instructions WILL result in misaligned supports, which we didn’t realize until it was too late.
3) The illustrated headboard mounting height doesn't account for thicker mattresses like ours (13.5” + plush top), which caused the headboard to appear too low. We ultimately had to remount it 6" higher to fix this problem along with the support issue.
BedMatthew T.Takes along time to put together. Draws don’t line up and I didn’t get the hardware for headboard.
NORDLIEVELYNVery satisfied. The 6 drawers are useful.
Great bed frame and headboard/on the harder side to assembleAshley S.This bed frame/headboard looks so sharp and sophisticated, especially in the anthracite color. We love how it's upgraded our bedroom, especially with the under bed storage. The drawers are large, and deep, providing extra storage in a space that would otherwise be useless.
Regarding the head board--a lack of hardware to mount the necessary pieces to the wall was disappointing and meant we needed to go purchase wall anchors and screws to properly and safely mount the headboard. One of the steps building the bed frame itself also was not clear, resulting in us not doing the step correctly and needing to go back to fix it. Thankfully, the step we needed to fix didn't mean undoing EVERYTHING, but it did result in a couple of broken camlocks (we already have replacements on the way). If we hadn't needed to undo and redo a step, we likely would have had the frame completed in approximately two hours and the headboard was quick and easy.
Storage bedJillWe downsize in the span is perfect. Perfect size perfect color and great storage.

Decent, with some pitfallsDavid W.I want people to know that the small hanging bin will scratch up the headboard. I put felt dots on it prevent that. The hanging bins, with their sheet metal construction, are just trouble.
The drawers could be a lot longer, though I can see how that might make installing them into the bedframe problematic in smaller rooms.
General tips: You'll probably get better results screwing in the fat screws if you do so very carefully, with good pressure; I used a hand screwdriver and this helped with sensing the orientation.
I'm not a fan of the instructions for hanging the headboard; instead of describing where the holes go, the instructions describe the lines that the hanging ledges should line up to. Maybe I'm just set in my old ways.
Putting it together took maybe 4 hours for two adults. We were also able to fit all the boxes in a 2020 Corolla, but they hung out of the trunk and the car beeped at us the entire way home.

The queen size bed lacks support in the middleSusan R.I purchased this bed in 2022 and it took some for my mattress to be delivered, and it was finally delivered and I started sleeping on it I realized that I’m constantly sliding to the center of my mattress do to the lack of support in the center of the Nordeli bed. This flawed design damaged my mattress as well, and IKEA does not sell extra slats to help fix the issue, so you will have to buy extra slats from somewhere else. I regret buying this bed.
My son loves it!!!PRISCILAVery nice bed, great quality! I love the drawers and many people complained about the headboard having to be attached to the wall, and to me that’s my favorite part of the design. It was super easy to install. And you can take it up and down super easy in case you need it.
Queen Nordli BedReneeFell in love when I saw this bed in store and love it even more on my home. The style is unique and rhe features are perfect. Love the drawers that close automatically. Definitely recommend highly!
great productUtsavgreat product
Better cost benefitAndersonAll set is beautiful.
Love it!VikkiAbsolutely love this, ny favorite part is that it's almost a full platform so dust/doghair doesn't just go directly into the drawers since they are fully covered!
Very nice and modern!GladysTook a bit to assemble but really nice and sleek look. Did have to buy and create extra support for it due to the lacking support in the middle. A lot of reviews also mentioned it and IKEA has yet to fix it or accommodate consumers with a fix. Otherwise the actual bed is nice and functional.
Great Nordli BedCarlBed assembled as expected but time consuming with 7 boxes to deal with. Looks great.
Good, not as "neat" as photosJoey U.The quality of everything is great. fit together well, easy enough to build (though it did take 2-3 hours). The reason I am giving this 3 stars is that the photos are a little deceiving.
That bed in the photo is PERFECTLY tucked and square, impossible to replicate. The dimensions of the bed frame are exactly the size of a king bed. So if your mattress moves, or is soft, or the sheets aren't tucked tight, or you use it AT ALL... it looks unkempt.
We previously had the Brimnes frame, but upgraded to a king mattress recently. That frame had a little lip that sticks up to hold the mattress in place and hide sheet imperfections. Didnt realize it was something I had taken for granted.
Also, the drawers on this bed are good, they slide well and feel solid. However, if I try to store my sheets, it keeps the drawer from closing unless it is maybe half capacity. Perhaps im used to stuffing too much in my old drawers, but it feels like I cannot fill the drawers up.
Hope that helps someone!
