Ikea Malm Chest: 2 Drawers
Advantages: Cheap, easy to assemble, stylish
I am a big fan of Ikea furniture and the Malm range in particular represents great value for bedroom items, we have a number of pieces including two of these bedside tables and a chest of drawers. These besdside tables are simple and stylish and have two fairly deep and useful drawers on very smooth runners.
These drawers cost £35 per set and they come in a range of five colours, these being birch (as pictured above and the colour we chose), oak, white stained oak, black brown and plain white. These colours match the chest of drawers which are also available so that you can keep the room to the same colour scheme.
The drawers have a stop pull out function so it is virtually impossible to pull them out too far, this is a great function, especially in a product within this price range. The drawers are very sturdy when built and the perfect size and shape to sit next to the bed, the space on top is a real boon if you have bedside lights and the like.
These are fairly simple to put together and they come with a full set of instructions which show you that you need a couple of different screwdrivers, a pencil and a hammer in order to successfully assemble them, it also tells you that this is a two person job. My husband and I built these together and they did not take us more than about 45 minutes per set of drawers, all the bits and pieces you need come in a small bag within the flat pack.
The dimensions of the product are as follows: Height 55cm, width 40cm and depth 48cm. The top is very easy to wipe clean (ideal if you are clumsy like me and end up with drinks being spilt on the top quite frequently - too much tea in bed!).
These are a great basic item for the bedroom and are pretty easy to put together, the price means that they are an affordable way to revamp a room and we would definitely buy them again.
Summary: A great value bedside table.
