Beds with storage

Drawers underneath your bed are a great place to keep your bed linen and extra blankets or duvets, or even your night-time reading. They’re easy to reach and especially helpful if you don’t have a lot of space. You can also find headboards with storage and even beds with built-in storage units.

Upholstered means extra cozy

If you fancy bringing an extra cozy feel to your bedroom, then an upholstered bed could be for you. The headboard features soft padding and can help you get nice and comfortable when you’re reading or relaxing in bed.

Choosing your mattress

You can't have a bed frame without a mattress. You can choose from lots of options in the IKEA range to get the comfort and support you need for a good night’s sleep.

Support for your mattress

Most IKEA bed frames come with bed slats, like these shown here. They sit within the bed frame and directly support your mattress. With some bed frames, it’s also possible to use a bed base instead of bed slats.
