Storage Bed Ikea

Rated 5 out of 5 by pjd999 from Great features, with care & time it’ easy assembly The bed is exactly what I was looking for and what I expected. Excellent height with a 12 inch mattress, the under bed storage is incredibly convenient and accessible. Storing things like winter/summer clothes/shoes/bedding, books and photographs. It is amazing to be able to have a safe place to store all those things I want easy access to but don’t use often. It’s good to have two people putting this together, makes it go faster and the final installation of the bed slats and railing needs the extra hands. I left the taller headboard part off and used it with an shorter older style IKEA headboard that is a wide flat surface and has shelves that pull out of the ends – it was a perfect. My son helped me put it together and he liked it so well we bought him one, too. This is also a good choice for people who want to take advantage of under bed storage and may not have room on the sides of the bed to pull out drawers. Something I have found helpful for dust or lint protection of the under bed contents is using an old flat sheet to lay over every thing. Easy to clean and keeps the light dust out.

I very much like this hack.Regarding the proposed under-bed storage/fort area for kids, I’d suggest getting rid of one of those horizontal shelves within the Expedit bookcases. Structurally, I you will find that they bear absolutely no weight, and I imagine the a small child will easily be able to squeeze through that area sideways. For a more universal size hole that even an adult could fit through, I imagine that the center vertical wooden piece in the Expedit bookcases is non-crucial to the stability of the bed, so if you went ahead and anchored that front middle bookcase but removed all of the shelves, you’d have a rather large area that just about anyone could fit through. Perhaps regain some structural stability by placing a couple of “EKBY LERBERG” brackets (or similar, but sturdier supports not found at IKEA) on each side of that front middle shelf.That should do the trick and cost very little more. Of course, be sure to test it thoroughly before letting anyone sleep on it.

I made this when I moved into my own apartment last year. I only have one room (about 30 square metres) and there is no room for a wardrobe or anything else to store my clothes, so this was a perfect solution. I bought five black 2×2 Expedits and arranged them like pictured above. I didn’t even screw them together or to the wall, since my floor is very flat and I want to be able to clean the floor underneath my bed. On top of the expedits I placed a sultan slatted bed base (SULTAN LÖDINGEN, 90x200cm, probably only available in Europe). I glued some pieces of felt and some anti-slide material to the underside of the sultan bed base, so it would 1) protect the Expedits and 2) stop the whole thing from sliding around. Then I threw a coloured sheet over the whole thing to conceal it a bit. On top of it all sat a futon for the past year – I only just bought a mattress today. Since people were asking about how much weight this construction can carry, I thought I’d reply. I was a bit sceptical at first and moved very carefully. After more than a year I can say that the expedits don’t show any signs of usage and the whole thing is rather sturdy. I weigh between 70 and 80 kilograms (154 / 176 pounds) so I can assure you that this “bed” is safe to use for kids, teens and adults (except for the obvious danger of falling down, but I got used to sleep up there fairly quickly.)

This is by far, one of the easiest space saving bed ideas I have seen so far. And I love the idea of switching the hole to the front so it can be a fort underneath. I’ve been looking at a bunk system so my 5 year old can have space to play or hang out under his bed, but he is afraid to be too high off the ground. I’m wondering though, how many years do you think I’d get out of this layout?? I mean, it would need some more support under it to carry it further than a few years. ??

If you want to get 2 of those Expedits back, you could get a stud finder. Pull the bed a way from the wall and draw a line on the wall using the top of your Expedits as a straight edge reference. Screw a 2×4 to the wall just below your line. You’ll probably need 4″ screws for that. Then you can get 2 of those Expedits back, because the bed will rest on top of the 2×4 ledge you create. For safety, I would probably still run 3″ screws into the wall through the Sultan frame to keep it from sliding away from the wall.

I did debate using something else for the back or side corner but I ended up just happening to go to Ikea on the day they had these half off, so I got another bookcase for $20 – I wouldn’t get lumber and heavy duty hardware too much cheaper than that. I figure when he outgrows this, we will use the bookcases elsewhere.

My boys are having no problem at all climbing inside as it is. They pull out a bin and crawl right through.
