Ikea Malm Bed
Advantages: easy to assemble, looks good
Disadvantages: Not a lot
With second son off to university, I decided to completely tidy and revamp his bedroom as I could never really get into the room while he was there!
We needed a new bed but didn't want to spend a small fortune on something he would probably not use that often and which would become a spare bed. I knew I wanted something more suitable for a boy and which would offer good support so we firstly bought the thick and sturdy mattress and then looked for a bed which had adjustable sides and so could take a thick mattress.
The bed costs £99 and included in this price are the slats although if you prefer not to have slats but to have a solid base then £20 can be deducted and a different base bought.
The bed can be bought in black or white, although we bought the black one. It's a nice black and rather than being just matte black, it almost looks as though it has a very slight wood grain. It is quite sleek in design with a solid frame and has no fancy bits, so it does look very modern.
ASSEMBLING THE BED...
The bed comes packaged in a couple of flat boxes and did fit in the car without too much trouble. Once opened, we found all of the screws and bits and pieces necessary to assemble the bed as well as a full set of clear instructions.
It was apparently relatively easy to assemble and Himself got it all put up in a couple of hours and without too much stress!
Length: 211 cm
Width: 107 cm
Footboard height: 30 cm
Headboard height: 77 cm
Mattress length: 200 cm
Mattress width: 90 cm
HOW TO LOOK AFTER IT...
Wipe clean with a damp cloth and then wipe dry
WHAT'S IT MADE OF?...
Bed frame: Particleboard, Fibreboard, Acrylic paint, Foil
Slatted bed base: Layer glued slats: Birch veneer, Foil
We added a nice thick mattress to the bed and the sides were easily raised to accommodate this without the bed looking as though its all mattress.
The bed looks and feels sturdy and solid and the design matches the colour of the room. I have also added some of the matching furniture so the room has a modern feel.
A reasonably priced bed which is good quality and easily assembled.
