I have an Ikea Malm frame. I’ve had it for the past four years. It’s held up great and never had any issues during our ‘fun times’!

PS. It also has the wooden slats!

We have an Ikea bed and mattress (equally broke!) and they’ve held up really well. I think ours has the same construction as your old one (the wooden slats), but maybe you just got really unlucky b/c we’ve had ours for 3 years and it’s been fine. Not the best mattress, but I like the bed itself a lot.

I have had one of their wood bed frames that I didn’t pay a lot for and it has held up for the last 9 years.  I love it.

We have an ikea bedframe as well. About two or three wooden slats have broken over the almost 3-years that we’ve had the bed, but other than that, it’s in good condition and the broken slats haven’t caused the mattress to fall or anything.

We have a Hemnes bed frame – it awas $300, so not one of their cheapest frames.  It’s held up really well and never broken on us.

I had a Malm bedframe. It was decent up until I started dating the boy, but from then on during our ‘fun’ times some of the wooden slats would frequently fall through. I know other people who have had this issue with Malm.

You can probably save even more money on a bed by finding on the theirs on Craigslist!  I know I always see Ikea stuff for sale on there.

I had one for several years and now my brother and his wife have it in their spare room – it’s held up really well!  Mine had metal side beams, but I don’t think they make the particular model anymore.

I’ve had the Malm for 6 years, including 3 moves and it’s held up great.  No issues whatsoever!

I had one of their metal frames and it held up really well – have had it for 7 years and moved 4-5 times!

Try buying your own 2x4s instead of their wooden slats

We have a Hemnes bed, and it’s been great!  It’s held up through all of our fun bedtime activities. 😉
