Ikea Malm Bed
Advantages: Sleek design, easy to assemble and clean.
Disadvantages: will get scratched/dented
As the bed in our previous flat was a cloth covered thing and we hated it, my husband and I were sure we wanted to get a pretty wooden one this time. Initially I started looking for beds with a storage option, but in the end we decided on this one.
We got the double bed of size 140 x 200 cm for £ 119 including the bed base and midbeam, which there is an option of changing and buying a different one. As with all Ikea products, it came flat packed. As we bought a lot of things from Ikea we had it all delivered but I am certain you would have difficulties in picking this and transporting it in a car and especially transporting it upstairs if you happen to live in a flat.
This bed comes in four colours- white, black,oak and birch.
Assembled, the bed size is 211 cm X 157 cm, with the footboard 30 cm high and the headboard 77cm high. There are detailed assembly instructions along with the product, with nice pictorial demonstration so it is quite easy to follow, although rather time consuming unless you regularly do this kind of thing. It also requires at least two people to comfortably complete the job.
Once assembled,it is quite firm and sturdy. The bed is made of particleboard/fibreboard and caoted with acrylic paint. Cleaning is easy- wipe with a damp cloth. I must say that it does tend to get dented and nicked if you hit it with sharp or heavy objects.
The design of the bed is minimal, with just plain clean straight lines. It is simple, sleek and modern and I like it very much. It suits my bedroom very well.
The height of the sides is adjustable, so you can position the bed as preferred. The bed base seems to be holding up well, even with a bit of jumping around.
I am very happy with this purchase, and would recommend it to you.
Summary: Good sturdy bed
