The Ultimate Guide to IKEA’s Bunk Bed Collection

Bedtime stories, midnight parties, slumber parties, and arguments   over who can get the top bunk;  All of   these are childhood moments associated with space-saving bunk beds.  Aside from the fun factor, beds are the   most practical options for small spaces.    That’s not even the fact that they are pleasing to the eye and fit   into any stylishly designed home.

There’s just one problem: there’s a lot to consider when choosing   the best one for your space.  It’s not   like choosing regular bed frames as there are beds that hang off the floor   with bunk beds.

To help you make the right choice as things can get easily   confusing, we have listed the best bunk beds you can get from the renowned   and trendy Swedish furniture maker IKEA.    Not only does the company make bunk beds that are attractive,   functional, and affordable, but their products are also rigorously tested to   ensure users’ safety.

IKEA TUFFING bunk bed   frame

If you’re looking for a well-made bunk that won’t cost you an arm   or a leg, the Tuffing in Dark Gray Bunk Bed is an excellent choice.  It was given with a strong, powder-coated   steel frame.  It’s a two size bunk bed   that is affordable without sacrificing the durability or safety of the bed.  

We admit that this isn’t the most stunning or elegant option, but   it’s definitely the most financially savvy.    Note: The device comes with a full warranty that you can seldom enjoy   buying an affordable piece of furniture from other brands.

Since the ladder system does not protrude, the tuffing bunk bed is   also suitable in difficult rooms where there is no luxury in the room.  The bunk bed is purposely made low to   ensure the safety of the kids as they get a good night’s sleep on their new   bed.  The entire unit is 51 3/8 inches   tall with a maximum load capacity of 220 lbs.    It only took an hour to assemble so it’s great if you are a busy   parent.

IKEA SVÄRTA bunk   bed

The SVÄRTA bunk bed frame is an excellent no-frills bunk bed and   will last a lifetime.  This makes it a   great value for money option.  What   impressed us about this IKEA bunk bed is the ability to add a pull-out bed   that can be placed under the lower level for extra sleeping space.  If you have three children this is a must   have in your home as it saves a lot of space and allows the children to sleep   separately.

Once the kids outgrow their love of the bunk bed, the device will   make a great bed in the guest room as it has a maximum load capacity of 220   pounds.

IKEA NORDDAL bunk   bed

In black-brown, the NORDDAL bunk bed frame has a subtle yet   classic style that is sure to go with any bedroom decor.  It has a perfectly balanced economy with   sturdiness as it is made of solid wood that forms the main parts and bed   slats.  Fiberboard for the bed frame   panel;  and galvanized steel for the   most durable mounting rail.

The beds can accommodate standard single mattresses, but are sold   separately.  What impressed us about   the NORDDAL bunk bed frame is the craftsmanship of the product.  Personally, it is clearly an exceptionally   manufactured product.  It’s also worth   every penny as the beds can be separated and placed in different rooms if   desired!

It is worth noting that while it is an affordable piece of   furniture, it is not made cheaply.  it   doesn’t wobble back and forth which means you don’t have to worry even if   your kids are hard on their beds!  When   assembled, it has overall dimensions of 77 3/4 “x 40 1/8” x 63   “.

The SVÄRTA pull-out bed will make all your children’s Friday   evening parties a little easier.  The   device can accommodate a double or single mattress.  If you don’t need extra space to sleep,   your children can use the underbed as an extra large drawer.  The pull-out bed slides out smoothly so   kids don’t have a hard time doing it on their own.
