Hackers Help: LURÖY slats for NORDDAL bed?


We bought the NORDDAL bunk bed a couple of years ago and love it, but a few of the upper beds slats have broken.

From our local IKEA we received no help, to our disappointment. Since we love the bed we thought maybe we could replace the slatted bed base with the LURÖY slatted bed base.

If anyone has an idea if that would work for us we would be grateful. We figured it would be the safest solution (instead of replacing the broken slats) if the LURÖY fits the bed frame. Thanks for any helpful ideas!

    The Norddal instructions show that this bed uses a non-standard slat system, and it doesn’t look like the Luroy is compatible with that – it may not be safe, either, since top bunks have height restrictions on the mattress for safety (and the Luroy will take up a big chunk of the height allowance) and the Luroy may not be stable when set on top of the Norddal bed rails. You are better off replacing the individual slats with wood from a home improvement store.

    Try a sheet of 3/4 inch plywood. It’s sturdy and will hold up under the abuse of rambunctious, youthful shenanigans.

    Yes, this will fit, for some reason it’s how all beds are sold in germany. Actually the spring effect of the luroy can make the mattress more comfy – but might encourage bouncing!

    On the other hand it’s also possible to take the broken slat to a DIY store and buy the correct length of wood to replace it with. This is safe and may be more convenient.
