Amazon! We've put together a lot of IKEA furniture in our years together, and this bed was a freaking breeze. It's super sturdy and has been such a great steal! *fwiw-- our mattress is from the same company and it's awesome too!
My package of screws only had the two lengths, there was no medium length. I’m not sure if you have a different bed than I do but I have this one. I’m realizing it’s probably a different bed frame but as far as bolts go, the medium length would most likely be 1 1/4 inch length by that 1/4 inch diameter. That’s one of the most common mid-length bolts in that size between those other two lengths.
Depends on the slats, Ikea slats are bowed/curved. If you put plywood, it's not going to sit flush.
If you have a Zinus bed like this one then you don't need anything unless you have a tempurpedic because the slats are well supported, the gap between them is 2.5inches which is something most mattress warranties are okay with. The slats are straight, in one piece and supported by a support beam in the middle which has it's own legs.
I like the Zinus bunkie board because it has metal periphery and has decent support beam as well which should rest on the Ikea support bed. TBH, I am not a fan of Ikea beds that don't have enough "legs". Like a lot of Zinus beds got 9 legs which helps the weight to be distributed across them vs Ikea which often have just 4 legs with a support beam that attaches to footboard and headboard.
So maybe a teak color and clean lines, etc....Scandi meets industrial.
I recommend a bed without a footboard as that will close in the bedroom..
Right direction or no?
More so just room makeover advice and what colors would go with my room. I’m thinking of changing the bed frame to this one since I think this color goes well but I’m not sure. [link]
Zinus Platform bed from Amazon
Here's the frame, just bought it myself last week. [link]
this one which is pretty simple and inexpensive. The wood and metal combo looks very masculine but is still versatile. Simple, clean lines. Nothing frilly or unnecessary, but gives off a “grown-up that cares” vibe and not a “college kid that bought the cheapest bed they could find” vibe
Edit: since the amazon link says 2-5 months, here’s the link to the manufacturer’s website which is just a little more expensive.
I found one on Amazon that is similar
