A Nightmare to AssembleMonaI’ve always absolutely HATED Ikea furniture and the instructions are exactly why. The instructions are ALWAYS unclear. You gotta follow pictures that aren’t even clear depictions of the parts. They need to work on improving all their manuals. My two brothers and I worked on it for 5 freakin hours and still didnt finish building it. And the bars that go across between the two sides to hold the mattress, it is SO UNCLEAR on how that was supposed to be put on, so we have to unscrew each pole and fix it and screw it back. It’s a little concerning & intimidating how high up the bed is, it’s like over 6ft. But it’s sturdy and can hold weight. I even tried shaking the frame in the store to see if it was wobbly and it wasn’t, which I didn’t assume it to be bc i doubt any store would sell something they could receive a lot of lawsuits for.
Nice and SturdyArmaniOnly took me and my brother to finish this in a maybe 2 hours. You need to carefully read it, as it was easy to mistake one piece for the other. The parts with the mesh was fairly easy if you know what to do. They do give you a small example on how to do it but it's not obvious. Instructions were pretty much clear for the most part. We also tested it by being on top of it. So it can carry around 260lbs (I weigh 120lbs and my brother is 140lbs). Overall, good price and very sturdy bedframe!
Sturdy, beautiful and easy to assemble.JosefinaJust what I expected. My 11 year old grandson loves it.
A dream and a nightmare EsmeraldaListen, we picked up this at 5 in the afternoon and got home at 6 pm. Three people started the process to assemble this bed and we didn’t finish all. It was almost 11 pm and everyone was so stressed (only the frame where the bed goes and the stairs were missing by then) that we gave up and did the rest the next day. The next day…if you thought it was going to be easy just because the frame where the bed goes and the stairs were missing…you are WRONG…three more people and two hours later (after blood, sweat and tears) we finished…never again…I should’ve read the reviews before…and also looks sturdy. I tried it, works fine, as intended. I looked up in the internet supposedly hold up to 220 lbs.
What you save by purchasing this bed outweighs the effort and time it takes to assemble it.
Nice sizeCallistoIm enjoying the frame so far I wish the bars were a bit wider it feels like I might fall coming down the steps in the morning. Im wondering what the weight limit is on it I can’t find it posted anywhere! Not on the unit the box or the website
The loft mesh cloth of bedWendyThe mesh cloth that goes on and around the bed so complex to tug on, also ripped the thread comes of easy pretty sure won’t last long
Nice bedShantelNice bed however wish it didn't wiggle as much and was a little more sturdy. Have a 70 pound kid on top and it wiggles. Also pain in the tush to put together.
My daughter loves itPhilipMy daughter has a small bedroom and she picked out this bed so she could have more floor space. She loves it and that's all that matters.
The WorstCarlosIn my 43 yrs in existence, I have built a pretty good amount of beds including two bunk beds both of wood and metal. The Tuffing bunk bed lives up to its name because it is extremely TUFF to build. Even with 2 people it was not an easy task. All the screw holes are mis-aligned and the mesh makes extra difficult to grip the support bars to align with the holes. If you make a mistake (and you will), when you have to separate the 2 piece bolts, you will usually get only one piece back. Pray that one piece does not fall into the pole. This is by far the worst piece of furniture I have ever had to assemble and disassemble and return. I have never returned a bed. The price is very attractive but the time it will take you to assemble it’s not worth it. Better off paying IKEA to deliver and build. Let them suffer. I gave one star to all because I will never know the quality, value, appearance or works as expected.
Kids bedAdrianaToo much
It's a grate bed theLukeIt's a grate bed the kids love them
Exactly what we wanted.IdaWe used it to give a tall space for our cats and it was perfect for them. We build stairs to the top for them. The only dislike is the ladder is in the middle and is very uncomfortable. The mesh was very confusing and it wasnt one person builder friendly. It also doesnt state a weight limit so I worry it isnt adult friendly. But all in all great product.
It squeaks ALOT when you move breath etcMadisonI got this bed and after 1-2 months of having it just began squeaking pretty short as well hard to assemble ALONE
Just want I wantedJacqueRead the instructions more than once before assembling. Have another person or two help as well. I was by myself and it took a bit longer than it should have and it was difficult. If I would have had the hand of another person I know it would have been done sooner. I love the height of it and it is pretty sturdy. My boys love it.
good saving spaceElizabethIt was hard to put it togwther by yourself.
PITA to put togetherXeniaThe instructions were a bit vague and confusing. Be sure to purchase the appropriate mattress, thickness-wise.
Great find!NicoleGreat bed, very sturdy and son loves it! Higher off the ground than we expected so definitely for an older child if considering purchasing for a child!
Expert Level Assembly RequiredVerified ReviewerI am an Ikea addict. I have assembled at least two or three dozen furniture items from Ikea across the years. Still, this bunk bed nearly defeated me. It took 3+ hours with a friend and at least another hour after that on my own to assemble this, and still, in the end, there were two screws in different places that I left out because I just could not get them to go where they were supposed to. It's a very solid bed for the price, but be prepared that this may take you the better part of a day, a friend, and a really large space to get fully assembled.
Practise bedSilviaExcellent price/quality ratio
Loft bedJackieInstructions were little hard to start but once we started it took little time and results were a very happy child who got a wonderful surprise.
