Put together a Stolmen 165×215 cm bed with storage


Materials: Stolmen, Lack, Fyndig

Description: We wanted a bed with a lot of storage.

We achieve it with :
- 3x STOLMEN 110×50 cm
- 3x STOLMEN 55×50 cm
- 3x LACK 55×55 cm
- 1 LACK 55×55 (cut in 3 parts)
- 2 FYNDIG 220×60
- 2 LACK 30×26

FYNDIG are fixed together with metal bars, screws …

The image is self-explanable.

It tooks about 5h for me to put together all these products.
Count about 30 min for each STOLMEN.
I spent 45 min to cut and assemble the LACK (D on the picture)

    I’d skip all of the C and D pieces. Put a small stool there instead. Benefits: more air flow under the bed plus extra storage space. Remove the top of one of the B pieces and B will be easy to pull out for accessing the C/D crawlspace. Put seldom use stuff there.

    serious nquestion : is it loveproof ?

      I think that you need to fix all Stommen with metal bars and screw.

      But it depend also of you and your girlfriend. You can break also a normal bed if you are to powerful.

    interesting. under C and D is empty right? how do u install without it fall down? tq..

    • David D says:

      I think their is no problem if you add slatted base bed. Your weight will be shared between all Stommen from the border.
      I think also that you ca decrease the price if you didn’t bought empty box.

    It just took me about 3 minutes on Ikea’s website to ‘price this as $892 AUD for Ikea Australia (not including parts C and D which seem unnecessary). I don’t know how much that varies by country.

  5. Tom says:

    $580 USD, just for the base. Might as well buy a platform bed. Save some money and it will look better too.

    Nice drawing, dimensions and parts list. I would have also liked to have seen how much it all cost. I know I can look at Ikea’s website, but it would have been convenient just to get a quick idea.

    I am looking for the FYNDIG but when I search Ikea .. all I find are two different kitchen sinks. I assume this is not correct. Any idea what it should really be?

    These storage beds are all well and good, but there is no air circulation. The slatted-bed design isn’t just to save material, it’s to allow air to move under and through the mattress. That might make it a bit chilly in winter, but at least it doesn’t stink or become full of sweat and bugs…
