Great for the priceSandraIn the showroom, I was nervous that the bunk bed would be flimsy. After properly putting the bed together and adding my own supports, it seems fine. We purchased this bunk bed for the extra height. I have a lot of vertical space in my place l, but not a lot of square footage. This was a perfect solution. I hope ikea explores more vertical space solutions.
Loft BedLizyBought this for my teenage son. He absolutely loves this bed. He is one person that rarely likes things, however this bed has exceeded his expectations! He has stated that he has a lot of space because of this bed and he was extremely proud of building it together with his father! Glad we made this purchase.
2 Hours to assemble??? Try 7.5DarceeIt comes in 3 boxes. Common sense would suggest putting the pieces to match the box! We had to open all of the boxes just to be able to put the top of the bed together, You have to assemble the top before you can do anything else. Box 1 should contain the top pieces, box 2 should contain the sides and braces and box 3 the bed slates and the stairs. Boom! DONE
Nightmare Fuel!JPros: it looks nice when assembled.
Cons: Components should be numbered and maybe use orientation arrows. instructions are vague. Mandatory two people to assemble. You need a large room. All boxes contain components from all different stages. Final product is wobbly--consider adding in support brackets under the bed and possibly reinforcing the legs, as the entire product shakes due to the flexibility of the tiny support legs.
Also consider adding your own handles to climb the ladder and get out of the bed safely.
Loft bed for a teenJessicaMy son put this in his room to free up space. We moved into an apartment while we look for a house and he loves having the bottom open for school and gaming.
Like bed but directions suckNathanPut the bed together took some time due to no directions just photos to off of. There was 3 boxes that came n had to open all 3 to find parts. To make easier maybe put all part 1 in box 1 n so on. Other then that my granddaughter loves the bed. The bed is Really high I can walk under it so make sure u have the room for it
it's high to the ceiling. good build.StevenNice bunk and lots of room in the bottom. The problem is it's very high. Very close to the ceiling. 7ft high. Measure to see if it fits first. Took forever to assemble. It's nice and solid.
Full size high loftBellaThis is the 2nd one I have purchased in 6 years. Great full size loft! someone 5’8 can still walk under comfortably. Product held up very well overtime.
Needs improvementFernandoHere's a few issues I've encountered when assembling this product:
1) As others pointed out, you need pieces from boxes #1 and #3, not sure if parts could be reshuffled to only need from box #1
2) Some parts are very difficult to identify, adding stickers would help immensely
3) The manual contains at least one error in the form of number of bed slats (manual says 16 and there's only 15) and positioning of bed slats - manual gives the impression that one side is colored and the other doesn't when both sides are colored.
4) Overall quality is very low. One of the nuts sunk in the wood as I tightened to the point that the wood cracked. Maybe if a semi circular washer was used similar to some Ikea chairs it would be better in that sense
5) It is flimsy as others pointed out. Doesn't feel as it is gonna collapse, but very flimsy overall. I added some L brackets and the screws would not tighten fully due to wood being too soft
Teen Son Loves ItVictoriaI initially ordered a way more expensive loft bed at PB, but it didn’t work well in my sons room. This bed technically didn’t fit either, but if I was going to hack anything, it would be the less expensive bed. This is a great quality loft bed. It fits well in my sons room and gives him a lot more floor space. My only issue is that the bed is very shaky. Once I figure out how to fix that, we’ll be all good!
Great bunk bed for myTheresaGreat bunk bed for my kids! Looks great in their room!
Kids bedBrittanyMy kiddo loved his new bed! He was so excited for it
Turned out Perfect!!!CarolinaWe bought this bed because our son's bedroom was small and we wanted him to have floorspace to play in. At first I was not too keen on the loft bed as it was too wobbly for my comfort. Our 6 year old was not too keen on it's height either. I decided to modify it a bit by cutting off 12" to drop it down a bit. This made it less wobbly (still anchored it to the wall for safety) and our son was more comfortable with the height. Not to mention that even though we have vaulted ceilings it was really close to the ceiling fan. This height adjustment solved that issue as well. Now I do not need to worry if my kiddo will hit his head on the ceiling fan if he wakes up in the middle of the night. All in all we could not be happier with our purchase, he still has plenty of room for his table and as he grows he can still place a desk or make it a sitting area if he wishes to.
space saverRealvinMy son loves it. Works very well in small rooms
Great upgrade for small room with high ceilingJasonThis was great! I'm 6'3" and while I need to squat when I'm under the bed, the rest of my family can walk under it without an issue. My son loves it and has his computer desk under the bed. We stapled his old twin-sized bed mattress foam foam topper on the underside of this bed so that it acts as a sound absorber when he's on his microphone for school (reduces echo) and it also doubles as a head protector for me when I get up from his desk and stand up too quickly. I used wood glue on the pegs (where appropriate) and propped the bed against the wall to reduce the bed from shaking. Used an 8" mattress from another warehouse store, but used cardboard (from the shipping box for this bed) on the slats to ensure that the mattress wouldn't ooze through the slats, which are about 2.5-3" gaps. Making the bed is VERY difficult due to the height, but it isn't the fault of the fact that the STORA is up high. Later this summer, I'll need to adjust a fan that comes too close to the bed (raise it up on its extension pipe). Other than that, I got the last one at my IKEA - it seems that a lot of wood products are out of stock right now.
Great bed just need aGwenGreat bed just need a little more support from the base
Loft bed to maximize spaceVerified BuyerWe added two Alex desks underneath the Stora loft bed for my daughter... one to game on and the other to do schoolwork on. She absolutely loves it and the bed is solid and sturdy!
It’s sooooo affordable and cute.MarydayIt’s sooooo affordable and cute. If you have tall ceilings in a small room, it’s a game changer.
Great loft bedKelliWe bought this last month, my daughter really likes it. The assembly was a bit difficult due to pieces not being marked. I wish there was more than one support beam going across the underneath, but it is pretty sturdy.
Not very strongVerified BuyerI bought this bed for my 14yr (at the time) old son, as he wanted a studio feel in his room with a futon, fridge, etc. He is a y’all boy and about 165lbs but not surpassing weight limits. The bed is a little wobbly but be of the planks on the ladder broke when he was coming down and another one is now cracked. I emailed IKEA to see if I can purchase replacements. Awaiting response.
