Here are two of the most highly-rated IKEA bunk beds:

1. MYDAL bunk bed frame

Super affordable and eco-friendly, this bunk bed is a great option for any kid’s room. And with the pine being unfinished, you have the flexibility to customize it however you want!

Why you’ll love it:

    • The ladder can be mounted to the left or right side.
    • Made of solid durable pine, wood which can be painted or stained.
    • Functional option for smaller spaces.
    • Comes with a slatted bed base.
    • Max. weight is 220 pounds.
    • Environmentally conscious and materials can be recycled if needed.

Some cons reviewers want you to consider:

    • Screws come loose and need to be tightened from time to time.
    • Difficult and timely to put together.
    • The wood has a very strong smell.

“This was a great purchase, my daughters love their new beds. The price is a great value and it seems sturdy and most of all a huge space-saver! It did have to be assembled by two people. Overall, I like the height and it feels safe for my kids.”

– Ana ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

2. TUFFING bunk bed frame

If you’re giving your kid’s space a more modern refresh, IKEA has plenty where that came from! This new and improved bunk bed is low to the ground and just what you’re industrial heart has been looking for!

Why you’ll love it:

    • Modern/industrial look.
    • Functional option for smaller spaces.
    • The bed is lower than standard bed making it easier for kids to get in and out of bed and for parents to see their child.
    • Bed base is included.
    • Max. weight is 220 pounds.
    • Fabric can be hand washed.

Some cons reviewers want you to consider:

    • Assembly instructions are hard to follow.
    • Very difficult to put together and the instructions are vague.
    • Takes two or more people to put together.

“After reading the negative reviews on this bed I was hesitant to buy it so my wife and I went to the store and looked at it. We thought it seemed very sturdy, safe and well built so we bought it! The issues on the reviews I read were ‘It’s hard to put together’, ‘The instructions are terrible!’, etc.

Well, after getting it home and unboxing it, my wife left to go get the kids from school. I read the instructions and started to put it together. I was about 1/3 of the way done when the fam came home. My 5 and 8-year-old finished helping me build the bed. Honestly, it was one of the easiest IKEA products I’ve put together!”

Need bedding to go with your new bunk bed?

Why buy IKEA bedding?

All of the bedding I’m sharing from IKEA is woven from sustainably grown cotton. Not only does it get softer with every wash, but it’s also breathable and wicks away moisture. Better yet, it’s easy to keep clean with machine washing.

As a bonus, all of this bedding is quality-tested and contains no substances, phthalates, or chemicals that can harm your child’s skin or health.

Here are our top picks for highly-rated kids bedding from IKEA.

1. VITAMINER HJÄRTA duvet cover and pillowcase

Need a little more heart eyes to add to your little one’s room? This bed set will be sure to make your child feel extra loved every night when they go to bed!

Some cons reviewers want you to consider:

    • Wish this set came with a matching fitted sheet.
    • Wish this set came in a larger size.

“I bought this bedding for my 4-year-old daughter who absolutely loves pink! I love that it’s a duvet cover, so in the summer she can use it without the inner duvet!” 

– Bonnie ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

2. LATTJO duvet cover and pillowcase

Calling all robot fanatics and future engineers! Any kid is going to love this colorful and fun robot bedding – it has the cool robots that they’re looking for but will keep them warm until sunrise.

Some cons reviewers want you to consider:

    • Wish it came with a closure at the bottom.

“My son picked this out for his room and loves the robot design. I love that it washed well and overall is such a great product with an even better price!” 

– Sky ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

3. LATTJO duvet cover and pillowcase

Your little one will be resting on cloud nine with these cute sky pillowcases. Once they’re dreaming, they’ll be running around their dreams in la-la land all snuggled up in this fairytale garden-themed set.

Some cons reviewers want you to consider:

    • No closure on the duvet so the insert doesn’t always stay in.
    • Wish it came in larger sizes.

“My seven-year-old daughter picked this for her bed. I love the whimsy of the animals, but I also like that the flip side is cleaner and simpler. The duvet goes in from the bottom, which is easy to do. I think this is such a great set even for slightly older kids.” 

– Heather ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

4. DJUNGELSKOG duvet cover and pillowcase

Some cons reviewers want you to consider:

“I love that this duvet comes with a zipper! It allows the insert to easily stay inside and it’s also such a great and soft material!”

    I purchased the duvet and pillowcase with the hearts all over it for my daughter about 4 years ago and it still looks great and has gotten even softer over the years. I have had 2 different kinds of duvets from IKEA for myself that were either too rough or tore apart very easily, but not my daughter’s. I highly recommend it.

      I’m glad to hear it has held up so well! Thanks for letting us know, natpav!

    I have the mydal bunk bed. We have been using it for years. It’s not that hard to put together. Initially it is time consuming but we have moved with it 4 times. We take some of it apart to move and put it back together. It’s still holding up after 8 years of use by 2 boys! Love it.

    • shannont

      I also have 2 plaid matching duvet covers from ikea. Not from the kids section. I figured it would last longer that way. They are great too!

      • Jennifer (Hip Sidekick)

        It’s great to hear how well your bunk has held up over all your moves! That’s awesome, shannont!
