Product details

By having a bunk bed instead of two single beds, you free up some much-needed square feet on the floor for playing and other activities.

Easier to make the beds and give your children a good-night hug since the bed is lower than other bunk beds.

A good solution where space is limited.

It’s easier to get in and out of the bed with a centered ladder.

The children can put their own stamp on their little nook of space by choosing bedding that they like.

Looks very nice and highSamiaLooks very nice and high quality5
Perfect sizeALYSSAThis bunk was the right size for a small room in a garage apart. My twin 9 year olds are enjoying it so much.5
Very comfortableAmitMy kids love it and it’s absolutely value for money5
Worse than the junk particle board crapTyler B.The holes in the mesh don’t line up and look like they burned with a soldering gun in a sweat shop. Looks easy to build but the design sucks. Be prepared to be frustrated1
Great beginner bunk bedkatelynThe assembly was a bit tricky at times, the netting didn’t always line up with the holes for the bolts. I wish there were options for when the ladder could go. But those are the only two negatives. My daughter loves her big girl bed, the color is great, the top bunk is the perfect height to still be able to give good night hugs, it makes it easy to check in on her. I love this bed, especially for the price!5
Our kids love this bed!MaryseOur kids love this bed! There was some difficulty putting it together but that is why it says to use 2 people!4
Going on five and a cross country move. Still great!MICHAEL C.We got this when my second son was 3, and wanted a low profile because he wanted to sleep on the top bunk. Five years and a move later, we still love the bed! A solid purchase for an incredible price.5
Love it!Brett W.I read a lot of reviews about how bad this was to put together and I can vouch that it you have a brain, it’s not that hard, I built this bunk bed by myself in roughly an hour. Hardest part was the top bunk slat install you’ll definitely need another set of hands. This a great bed for the price. The kids love it. Its sturdy and quiet. I personally am a blue collar worker so I used a hex bit set on an impact drill which probably saved a lot of time for install instead of using the supplied hex bit tool it comes with. 10 out of 10 recommend5
Good height to avoid ceilingANNGood height to avoid ceiling fans. Pretty easy to assemble but you do need a helper.4
Love it!LinaLove it!5
It’s hard but not 8hours hardMichael N.My wife saw the comment about someone took 8 hours to put it together she took it as a challenge and put it together in 3 it’s sturdy as hell it’s perfect for my two kids 3 and 9. The instructions were clear. The only tedious part was the rail netting.5
Perfect for childrenMaryPerfect for children5
Horrible to put together!Rachel K.I just built this bed today. It was a nightmare & so frustrating to put together. One of the long metal pieces came defective & I had to get it replaced at the store. Then it was very very very difficult to finish assembling the bed. The flat bottom of the bunk bed which supports the lower mattress was easy to screw together. But for some reason the support for the upper part of the bed was an absolute nightmare to screw in. Had the most difficult time getting all the parts to line up so could be screwed in correctly. I spent a total of almost 8 hours putting this bed together with my spouse. The bed looks nice. That’s the only positive I have to say. It’s an absolute pain to put together & in my opinion poorly designed. I honestly wished I had not gotten this bed. But now that it’s been put together & in my kids’ room I’m not taking it apart. If you get this bed, be prepared to spend a lot of time building it. Or better yet, maybe pay someone else to do.1
Great deal and easy build.MarioLove that it's great space saver and great for small kids.5
Perfect size for a childjaimePerfect size for a child wanting bunks but afraid of heights!5
Disappointed with the purchaseSameer M.One of the worst Ikea products. We have been purchasing Ikea products and have never had any problem assembling them. But this bed was so hard and time consuming. Very frustrating wish I hadn't got it. Very disappointed1
Multiple kid approvedGabrielaI have 4 kids in one room . So we purchased 2 sets of these and they fit perfectly with plenty of space in the room still. Very sturdy as well.5
Really niceshakeytaThis bunk bed is strong and not too difficult to assemble. Make sure to get the right mattress though. I had to replace the ones I got.5
Good ValueAnthonyThis is a solid and economical bunk bed. The big draw back is that the fabric is not removable without disassembling the bunk. I understand the safety but when a kid gets sick it is difficult to clean.4

The practical magic of bunk beds

Bunk beds can seem magical to kids. From being one of the smallest in the family, you're elevated to where you can see everything completely differently. Sitting up high, you might even be able to peer down at your parents or siblings. It's hard not to feel like you're in a nest, or a ship, or the tower of a castle.

Of course from a parent's point of view you're probably thinking about fitting two siblings in a room, or perhaps an extra bed so friends can sleep over. In either case, bunk beds are a clever way to make the most of children's sleeping spaces. With the new TUFFING bunk bed and loft bed, designed to be affordable and fit in smaller spaces, both parents and kids get a practical and slightly magical piece of furniture.

Kids don't think about safety so we do

Let's face it, when kids are in the middle of an activity the last thing they're probably thinking is 'is this safe?'. Because of this our children's beds undergo some of the most rigorous testing it's possible to do on furniture. There are strict industry safety standards to start off with, but for the TUFFING design team this was just the beginning. TUFFING product development engineer Olaf Szukalowicz explains the journey. "First of all we looked at global data covering all types of accidents that have involved bunk beds. Then we worked with the design and especially all the gaps and openings to stop these from happening again."

Next the team had to make sure the bunk beds could hold up to everything they could throw at them. "After that we tested the durablity to make sure all the parts are really tough. We do that with two weeks of vigorous strength testing where the structure is pushed and stretched to constant extreme forces," Olaf says. Or, for the more science minded, the beds are shaken at 300 newton for over 10,000 cycles to test for any weaknesses. Afterwards came a slightly more unorthodox (but very practical) test. "I also climbed on top of the bed and jumped on it without the mattress. I'm 165 lbs. so I was happy that it held up fine for me!"

A vital place for kids to rest and recharge

Of course no test for a child's bed is complete without looking at the product from a child's perspective. Throughout the design process the team worked with research from child and adolescent psychotherapist Dr Barbie Clarke. Dr Clarke explains the role of the bed in children's rooms. "The bed is something that children can say, 'this is mine, my space'. Even if they are sharing a lot of other things, the bed is often a private area that helps them work out who they are, rest and recharge. When we do global research the children we interview will often say that their bed is the favorite part of their home."

Building on the research, the next stage naturally enough was to ask kids for their feedback. Deputy Range Manager Nina Hughes at Children's IKEA explains: "We're lucky enough to have an international school here, so we were able to bring in groups of kids from different parts of the world. Then we'd ask them things like, 'How does it feel to climb the ladder?' 'How do you feel about the height?' or 'Do the guard rails help you feel safe?'" With the kids' feedback (keep the orange bedposts and make the guard rails higher on the loft bed) and tick of approval, the design process was complete. The best part might be that even if TUFFING is soon reimagined into a castle or a nest, it'll be a safe one.


What is steel?

Steel has unique characteristics when it is stretched and shaped since it remains strong. It provides strength to everything from skyscrapers and cars to bed frames and outdoor furniture. The steel industry is moving in the direction of more energy-efficient production and stronger steel qualities. It doesn’t lose any of its properties when recycled and today steel is one of the most recycled materials in the world.

Lowest price

Don’t let the price fool you

TUFFING bunk bed has passed the same strict safety tests as all our other bunk beds. We just used other materials, made it lower and replaced the guard rail with the ladder. All to make it exactly as safe to sleep in – just a little cheaper.
