Hi all,
Sorry if this is starting to get done to death but due to budget (poor serviceman) I am looking at the Ikea bed as "rock & roll" stlye bed but have only seen ones fitted raw ie just frame. Can any kind members show me their pics with the uphosltery on, as the top notches look like they might get in the way? Also has anyone got round the big wall type affair at the back of the bed when opening the rear doors?? Thanks in advance for all help.

Not sure how you would get around the back section as it forms part of the bed and is typical of nearly all rock and roll beds. Raising the whole bed helps and is nessesary to clear arches, this then gives you room to store under the bed.

Im using units down the side, so bought a single frame and and widened it to 3/4 size by replacing slats with 41 inch wide ply, then Bought the double matress for it, removed the foam from cover and cut it down to 41 inches, replaced cover and tucked excess cover underneath for now as im planning on getting getting it covered with a different fabric anyway, can kind of see it in my pictures in thread below.

Hi mate. Found that link straight away too. A: The concern I have is if you look at the grey vinyl pics there is a small section that seems to sit loose and then fitted to the form the matress in the bed mode. Think that could annoy me if that moved around when trying to sleep. Just hoping that I could get some more pics to get more of a firm idea, plus I need to show my retrimmer to give him an idea.

Yeah, im not sure about the thin section. The matress I bought from ikea has a seat section of foam which is separate from the rest (but zipped to the the other section) and the second part is one big piece which goes up the backrest and folds over the back.
I was just going to cut the large peice into 2 so it would be more like the grey vinyl pics but the back piece you see when rear doors are opened im going to leave longer than the grey vinyl one so that you dont see the pivots of the bed. It looks like he has cut this shorter which has then left him with the thin section.

If you look at the thread below you (a double bed) you can see how the matress is made up.. an independent seat section, then one big piece that goes over the seat back. im just goint to cut this bit peice at the point where it bends over the back...then you will only have the 3 sections and not the extra little thin section.
