great budget choiceErica R.Purchased this a few months ago. It was pretty easy to assemble, and has been holding up fairly well. My only issue has been that I had it on some very slick wooden floors. Due to the lightweight frame, every time I accidentally bumped it or tried to change sheets, the bed would go skidding away. I put a rug down as I'd initially intended and that solved it.5
Bed frame collapsedMcKenna M.I bought this bed frame is August, it is now October. I had issues with the frame and headboard collapsing while I slept. I was able to rebuild it the first time, but last night as I was sleeping the top beam of the headboard completely snapped and the whole thing fell apart. My issue with this product is that there is not enough support to hold the heavy wood. Basically one screw holds everything together and it is not sturdy enough! The bed frame is very pleasing to the eye but the quality is very poor. I would not recommend this bed frame if you are looking to get more than a few months out of it. Very disappointed1

Looks nice but you have to buy your own supportLucy S.The bed looks nice and was fairly easy to assemble. Though when I was at IKEA I asked the employee if all I needed was the bed and the support frame and he told me yes, that is all I needed. However, once I built the bed there was zero support other than the beam and 4 flimsy, 1 inch wide rods that snapped immediately when I got into the bed the first time.... So you will need to buy your own slacks (aka support) to hold the mattress up.
***My (cheaper and more efficient) solution:**** just go to your local home depot, lowes, lumber yard, whatever... get 8 thick pieces of lumber, have the worker cut them down to 6.25 feet (for queen), and use those as the support beams. They are WAY stronger, no risk of getting the wrong size (as you'll see many store bought slacks are incorrectly sized), and also cheaper! Cost me $25 for all the lumber and cuts, compared to $50 slacks on amazon, or the IKEA slacks that are always out of stock and break easily.3
Clean and simple - Great for guest roomKatelynGot this bedframe for our bedroom. Love that it's raw wood, so i can stain it as i choose to fit the aesthetic of the room. It's a simple and clean design, was easy to put together (even on my own), and have seen some fun ways to dress it up as well. Very happy with this!5
Modified Montessori BedMadisonMy husband and I used this bed frame to save us time in creating a Montessori space for our son. We actually sawed off the legs and have it sitting on the bed. It's very sturdy and works amazing. Our son loves it and sleeps through the night now!5

Guest Room PerfectionHannahThis bedframe is great! We choose it because of it's low profile since we put it in the guest room that we also use as a home office and wanted to be able to have space for both. It was easy to put together, very sturdy, and fills the room with a fresh pine smell. Maybe one day I will stain it to elevate it even more.5
Good productCatherine A.Might need another person to help assemble, especially at the end when you're connecting all the boards together. I understand why people have commented that the wooden slats are a bit of a headache - I couldn't find a way to put the mattress on top without moving the slats out of place, so I duct-taped them down to the bed frame in specific parts. Not an elegant solution, but I've had no problem with them. This is a sturdy bed frame, not squeaky at all.5

Cheap and Pretty, but the Bunkie Boards SuckJulia S.This bed comes with bunkie boards to support the mattress, and if I even sit on the mattress wrong, they'll fall out. Twice a week for the last four years I've had to get up in the middle of the night and fix them back, which is easy enough since this setup doesn't use screws or any kind of drilling, but that "ease of use" lends to the problem. It's a huge nuisance. While this bedframe is cheap and aesthetically pleasing, it will not work in the long run due to those loose slats.3
Tarva bedAnthonyThe bed is sturdy and firm once assembled. It was not hard to assemble. My daughter loves 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 solid wood?
Solid wood is one of our favorite materials and is part of our Scandinavian heritage. It is also a timeless material with many uses. Regardless of the wood species, it is durable, beautiful, renewable and recyclable. We strive to use this raw material as smartly and efficiently as possible to avoid waste – and we also invest in facilities and logistics so that we can increase the use of recycled wood. This way, every tree is put to good use that little extra.
