Expert Level Assembly RequiredSarah O.I 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.4

Space SaverAysheaThis bed is great! My daughter has her own space now and the Ikea storage fits perfectly underneath for all her bits and pieces. She is 11 and it is sturdy and she loves it.5
Good bedYas M.It was a pain to put together it took about a whole day (with multiple people). Overall its is a good bed exept for the ladder part, I wish they would've put it on the sides or at least made it closer to the sides as it takes up a lot of room which is the reason why I bought it.4
Don"t buyKimTerrible directions and missing parts. We purchased this because Ikea was out of bunk beds. We ended up buying another bed to put below it. I will never buy another bed like this from Ikea again.1

The hardest yet most satisfying IKEA buildandreWarning: seriously think and try this bed before buying and begin to assemble right away. This bed is very difficult to disassemble due to the socket style threaded lugs (40 of them). Also, the net is an additional nightmare on top of that! I began building my Tuffing quickly because I'm confident I can always make anything from IKEA work for my needs. At the point after putting the net partially and I made a small mistake but to correct that, it was not just unbolt, I got to deal with the socket lug that is stuck after I unthreaded the bolt. At this point I realized there is no turning back. You need a large space to install the slats because the frame needs to lay down in horizontal position. The side opening for the ladder is narrow and position of the ladder is angled. Because of this, your room/space needs to be about 60 inches before you can comfortably climb up and down the ladder. Because of this, I decided not to use the ladder and once again I had to undo the socket lugs, what a pain. I decided to use the front opening as a ladder and remove the very top bar, cut the net and tuck in it under the mattress. I wrap around a chair cushion ($6 also from IKEA) and tie it with shoe lace. I put a chair also for a nice landing. I have never seen anyone with this hack but I can't attach photos in here. I don't recommend it either unless you're an adventurous person like me. I have an old 6" foam mattress from walmart for about $100. I bought a fitted sheet set from Macy's clearance for $7. I then added solar string LED under the bed, I put the little solar panel just by the window, it works! I now have a cool and comfy loft bed! I'm 5'7, 175 lbs. and I approve the use of this bed every day.5

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.
