(Smastad, Malm, Hemnes + More!)

IKEA stocks a wide variety of beds, bed frames, and mattresses, which are built to be sturdy and durable.

However, you may be wondering whether IKEA beds have a weight limit. Here is everything I have managed to find out!

IKEA Bed Weight Limits [All You Need To Know]

For IKEA bunk beds, the recommended weight limit for the top bunk is 220lb or 100kg. For IKEA’s single, queen, and king-size beds, IKEA does not officially state a weight limit. However, many customers have stated their beds are comfortable handling a combined weight (for an average of two people) of 500-550lbs (220-249kg).

To learn more about the best types of IKEA beds for plus-size gals and men, plus the weight limits for individual IKEA beds, keep on reading!

IKEA Bunk Bed Weight Limit

IKEA has a vast selection of bunk beds to choose from, ranging from wooden to metal frames, and bunk beds with desks underneath.

The weight of a bunk bed user should be taken into consideration, as bunk beds are built on tall supports, and thus must be able to support weight properly, in order to avoid potential injury.

IKEA does stipulate on their website a recommended weight limit for bunk beds. For most bunk beds, Ikea recommends a weight limit of around 220lb (100kg), for each bed.

IKEA Kura Bed Weight Limit

The Kura bed is a popular choice for young children, as it can be very easily customized.

IKEA stipulates a maximum weight for this bed, around 220lb (100kg), due to its leg-supported wooden frame.

IKEA Loft Bed Weight Limit

The IKEA loft bed is very similar in design to the bunk bed, so its maximum load will generally stand at around 220lb (100kg), much like other bunk bed options.

IKEA Malm Bed Weight Limit

IKEA Malm Bed Weight Limit

IKEA does not list a maximum weight for Malm bed, but it can be gathered that the bed will be able to support a good amount of weight.

From our research, the Ikea Malm bed is estimated to support around 500lb (226kg) combined for two people.

Since the Malm bed comes with specialized slats and a sturdy mid beam across the frame, it is one of the most sturdy beds Ikea sells.

IKEA Mydal Bed Weight Limit

The Mydal bed is a variety of bunk bed, so it can generally only support up to 220lbs (100kg) of weight to avoid potential harm if the structure were to fall.

IKEA Stora Bed Weight Limit

The Stora variety of bed is a wooden framed bunk bed, thus its recommended weight limit stands at around 220lbs (100kg).

IKEA Smastad Loft Bed Weight Limit

The Smastad loft bed is a sturdy and well-constructed bunk bed with multiple points of support from built-in desks and closets.

This bed has a listed maximum load of 220lbs (100kg), however, it would be possible to safely exceed this, but it must be done sparingly, and with caution.

IKEA Hemnes Bed Weight Limit

IKEA does not list a recommended weight limit for the Hemnes bed.

However, it is clear from our research that with strong slats and proper supports, the Hemnes bed can support a lot of weight (estimated at 550lb or 249kg combined weight), due to being close to the ground.

IKEA Brimnes Bed Maximum Weight Limit

The Brimnes bed frame is a popular variety, due largely to its multiple storage points and its sturdy build.

IKEA does not list a maximum weight limit for this bed, but it can be gathered that the bed frame can support a good amount of weight (estimated at around 500lb or 226kg combined weight), due to its multiple points of support.

IKEA Idanas Bed Weight Limit

The Idanas bed frame is a fashionable and stylish upholstered bed frame.

IKEA does not directly list a maximum weight for the bed, however, because it features less support, and very small legs, it is recommended not to exceed 220lbs (100kg).

To learn more, you can also see my posts on how long IKEA furniture lasts, the IKEA mattress return policy, and whether or not you can return assembled furniture to IKEA.


Ikea does not have a general recommended weight limit that can be applied to all bed frames that they sell, however, they do list a number of maximum weights for beds such as bunk beds, which stands at around 220lbs.

Generally, from my research, I can see that it is best not to exceed this weight, if you are planning to get a bed frame that features legs as support. If you plan to exceed this weight, you may be better off purchasing a platform bed, which can equally balance weight.
