We just bought new furniture and were considering IKEA but the people we talked to who owned IKEA stuff said it was all crap and not worth buying. It also seems like poor quality when we went into the store to look so we went with a different furniture store.

Don’t do it! The only things I trust Ikea with are knick knacks and decor accent pieces. Furniture is a no. Its cheap for a reason.

My BF works at IKEA so most (read all) of his furniture is from there. His bed is the most comfortable thing I’ve ever slept on. BUT it’s the higher end stuff. He agrees that the lower end stuff can be kinda crappy.  The mattress has some kind of extra pillow/memory foam? thing that is separate and when I first laid down on it I thought it would be too firm. However I sleep like the dead.

i think the furniture is Hemnes (however you spell it) but I don’t know about the mattress.  He likes ‘nice things’ so it’s probably the most expensive one they’ve got.  He says to spend at least 10 min laying on one in the showroom, they’ll encourage you to do so to make sure you like it, before deciding.

I’ve honestly had pretty good luck with buying fruniture from Walmart (their online store has way more options)…obviously affordable, too. So far everything I’ve gotten has held up really well.  I usually cross-reference with Amazon first, though.

sugarcloud :  We have an IKEA mattress and bed frame. At first we were skeptical but they’re amazing! The frame with the drawers is great because I have a lot of stuff lol. The mattress is one of the higher end Queen mattresses; it’s firm but incredibly comfortable.

We have a really nice bed from there, it’s super comfy and it’s going on 5 years now.

sugarcloud :  basically all of our house is Ikea ๐Ÿ˜‚

We got an IKEA bed last year after our divan broke. Had no problems at all so far and it’s SUPER comfy. I grew up on IKEA beds at home and never had one break!

Our mattress is also IKEA, but I can’t remember which one specifically. I do think it was one of the more expensive ones, but it’s like sleeping on a cloud ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป

My kids (4 of them) have been on the SAME Ikea beds for like 10 years now. When we move we occasionally end up needing to go to Ikea for hardware (screws, etc) but the beds themselves have held up to a LOT of abuse. We have 1 bunkbed (used to have 2 but one kid outgrew it…he’s in his 20s now, so…). Now we have the same bunkbed and a loft bed. If you’re on a budget. I think the Ikea beds are worth the investment for the amount of time they’re in them. Just my .02. 

ETA: I am also on an Ikea bed frame (the one with the headboard, and some drawers on the bottom. I’ve used it for like 8 years now with zero issues, tho I did replace the mattress about a year ago.

Basically all my furniture is from ikea. It’s very cheap and honestly I don’t see anything different in the quality from other places. The beds are good. I just got a nice bed liner mattress on top and the bed feels great. Ikea is great value for money.

Also you can get meatballs and princess cake when you go there so I only see that there are positive things ๐Ÿ˜

I have an ikea bed that I got second hand from someone else and it’s as good in quality as any other beds I’ve owned. No problems here.

I’ve had my Ikea bed frame for… about 10 years now. Still solid as ever. It’s been through countless moves with me, taken apart and put back together a ridiculous amount of times. I’ve never had a mattress from there so I can only speak about the bed frame but it was totally worth it for the price. It’s metal though, not wood.
