It is the details that make this loft bed unique. Soft shapes, fabric guardrails and a desk with a practical pegboard. You can also accessorize with products from the MÖJLIGHET and SKÅDIS series.
The desk top is large enough for a laptop and books, but still gives you enough room to fit a cozy nook of pillows or storage space next to it.
You can easily keep the workspace neat and tidy since there is built-in cable management and a channel that holds pens in place.
A metal panel is angled against the desk top which has the same height as an A4 piece of paper. Perfect to use as a magnetic noticeboard and with accessories from the SKÅDIS series.
Easy to assemble since the fabric is divided into sections and the edge bands are elastic.
If you want to make the bed even more comfortable and personal, you can complete with MÖJLIGHET pillow and bed pocket – they are dimensioned for the VITVAL series.
The construction is light but steady, and has soft shapes.
The desk top mounts on the right or the left side of the bed.
The ladder mounts on the right or the left side of the bed.

Sturdy and solid, assembly is not a problemValentin R.I’ve assembled two of these. I am experienced with IKEA furniture, but would not call this assembly hard. Things to remember:
1) there is a mistake in the manual with page numbers. When it tells you to jump to a page, the page numbers are wrong. You can figure it out.
2) don’t tighten the screws as the manual says, until you have assembled the whole thing.
3) it will take 3 hours per piece, prepare morally. You can speed up the process with a good set of tools. I put in screws by hand, then screw it with a power drill, then finish with regular screwdriver.
4) you will need a second person for couple of moments.
The bed is great, worth the time.5
Great bed for my sonSarahMy son had his own room but with the arrival of his new little brother this bed was a great price for the space that is saved he didn't have to lose his dest or downsize any of his stuff!5
Cute bed not well madeMelissa B.It took 4 people with lots of prior ikea furniture assembling experience 6 hours to put this bed together. The problem was many of the holes did not line up at all. At completion some of the screws just could not be screwed in all the way.
Would not recommend because the craftsmanship was just not good. Why make a bed where the holes won’t line up. Not much wiggle room here when dealing with metal.
We bought two of these and decided after putting one together - we are disassembling it today and returning both of them.2
So much funJOHANNAMy son is enjoying his loft bed. He has his little man cave that he loves to do creative things in.5
Very Nice!!!!YolandaIt is a very nice bed. A little hard to assemble but we did it. You will definitely need two people to do this job
When is done, it is beautiful and my daughter loves it!! She is very happy and thats all that really matters5
Most horrible installation guideAditiWe have bought most of the big furniture from IKEA with most easy installation guide. This bed took nearly 10hours for me and my husband to install and reinstall due to most complicated steps and difficult installation guide. It so happened due to an incorrect step, we had to redo bunch of steps in that process one side of the bed flipped and banged on the wall and fell on my husband leg. He got a bad sprain and damaged the wall and wardrobe door. Very disappointed with the installation guide. Just because my daughter was super existed and our effort spent on installation, we continued to complete rest else at a point had decided to return this item. Overall bed is okay and gives screeching sound when my daughter moves in her sleep. Apparently the sound once was so loud that she woke up in the middle of the night. Now she is now kind of use to the screeching. I would not recommend this big due to injury and damage.1
Bed for 11 yr oldKristineAll went smooth until the wood slats.4
Game ChangerGFor 2 kids that were sharing a hacked kura bunk bed, this effectively created 2 separate spaces while providing a much needed office space for my oldest.
I knowingly bought this after reading a review that called this item a root canal in a box, and can confirm that it was indeed, a root canal in a box—thankfully I kept the screws loose enough until the end to make sure everything aligned ;)
The end result is sturdy, minimalist, and highly functional.
Read your directions well, don’t tighten anything, and block out an afternoon when you have 2-3 hours to dedicate.5
Almost tall enough for an adultJacobThese are working really well in my house. They were not the easiest to assemble, but not horribly difficult either.5
So sturdy!Jess823I’m 24 living at home and this bed saved me SO MUCH SPACE. Took a while to put together but the instructions aren’t as bad as other reviews say. It’s common sense stuff and it DOES say to not tighten the screws until the end. Very happy with it. Also, my mattress is 6” thick and it fit JUST FINE.5
Exactly what we neededCris722I bought 2 of these for my middle school age daughters to maximize the space in their bedroom. First one was a little tricky to assemble, second one took half the time! If you buy this, do NOT tighten any of the screws until it is fully put together otherwise the holes don’t line up at all. Seriously, leave everything less than hand tightened until the very end.5
Good for small roomGranny FernWe have a similar IKEA bed with the same kind of ladder. The rungs were made more comfortable by wrapping tightly with soft thick rope.5
Great space saverGricelI gave it 4 out 5 only because building instructions are really bad, nothing is labeled. I learned not to tighten the screws till the end, otherwise I really like this bed.4
love the design but.....Amber hosI bought this for our son about a month ago. We love the design. It’s cute and sturdy. While I was in store I saw a pack of markers that looked fun to give my son with the desk part. That very first day he used the markers and they are not washable. The top of the desk is completely stained. It’s so sad. It didn’t even last a day without getting marked up. We’ve tried everything. So just be careful what type of writing utensils you use.2
Perfect for 8-year oldMAKongVery pleased with this loft bed. The desk underneath is perfect and also leaves room underneath for a beanbag or other small chair. I gave 4-stars because this loft bed does not use a regular size mattress. A thinner mattress is required.4
TashaLeaPerfect for my 7 year old. Feels sturdy. My only criticism is that the ladder rungs are a narrow and slightly rounded which is a bit uncomfortable on the feet.4
Hard to put togetherIjf809030 pages of instructions! Requires two people. Decision on ladder placement is critical since changing position of ladder requires starting over.2
Dont botherBuckeyecowdocHoles pre drilled and tapped for bolts do not line up. Allen wrench head bolts then strip out when you try to assemble. Box was also missing 6 parts, which required a return trip to the store for spares.1
Great featuresYadi 77I brought this like 3 months ago I am happy I did5

Where do your children spend most of their waking hours at home? Quite likely the answer is in their bed. Because when life for slightly older children today often revolves around phones, tablets and friends, a lot more space than that “hub” isn’t really needed. With VITVAL loft bed and bunk bed, we wanted to make comfortable and cozy beds for all children who prefer hanging out there. But the goal was also to considerably reduce the amount of materials to save on nature's resources.
Metal is a durable and stable material and really suited VITVAL bed frames. The question was just how much we could reduce the amount of the metal used without decreasing stability and safety. Product developer Anna Carme and her colleagues performed detailed calculations and safety tests. "We came a long way", says Anna. "But it was not enough ― we thought the bed frames were still too heavy."
30% less metal
Experimenting with materials led to the team replacing the bed's edges with fabric. This meant that they managed to reduce the amount of metal by almost one third compared to similar beds. "We found a strong polyester material that also gives the bed a nice and cozy feel ― both when the children hang out there with friends and when it’s time to sleep."
Easy to assemble
"The fabric is mounted on the frame", explains Anna. "And to ensure that the assembly is simple for all parents, we invited a number of people to test it out." The tests then led to the team dividing the fabric into sections and making the yellow edge bands more flexible so that they are easier to pull on. "I love playing detective, to look for and investigate what we have for different alternatives", says Anna. "Nothing beats the feeling when you finally find a good solution."
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.
Form design process
More relaxing, less materials
The idea with VITVAL loft bed and bunk bed was to make comfortable and cozy beds for all children who like hanging out with their phones, tablets and friends. But we also wanted to save on nature’s resources and limit the amount of metal in the beds. So how do you achieve two so different goals at the same time? Our solution was to make the bed edges out of a strong polyester fabric that gave the bed a nice and cozy feel ― and we thereby reduced the metal by 30% in each bed.
