8. A hack to enlighten your IKEA Malm bed and give it an innovative twist
Draw inspiration from IKEA’s pine wood bedside tables.
Grab a wooden board, 2cm thick, with a similar hue, sized at 70cm x 2.05m. This will slightly overlap your 1.80m x 2.00m bed, creating a trendy border. To fix the board, use angle brackets: 3 at the top and 2 on each side. A quick tip: ensure the board’s edges are smoothed post-cut to avoid splinters. Remember, the board doesn’t touch the floor; it comfortably rests on the original bed frame behind your mattress.
For added flair, consider the HEKTAR clamp lamps°. They seamlessly clip onto your new board. In 2019, an IKEA DELAKTIG rattan headboard can take the design up a notch. If you’ve got one lying around, or fancy buying separately, it’s a fantastic addition. Secure it using 3 long screws from the back through the pine board into the rattan – they’ll be completely hidden.
Do you need more securing at the base? Drill an additional 4 screws from the front, navigating easily via the wooden strip on the rattan headboard. If your mattress fit is tight, consider opting for a narrower pine board.
