1. Hemnes day bed

Most popular

This is Ikea's number one bestselling bed! With it being so versatile you can see why. The classic white wood base is simple yet stylish and designed to suit almost every scheme. It works in small studies, guest rooms and even as a child's bed in its own right. It has a fabulous amount of storage space for linen and blankets to convert from sofa to bed when needed.

2. Bekkestua divan bed

Most stylish

Did you know that 60% of Ikea products come from the forest? So you could be forgiven for not believing this handsome divan double bed comes from our Swedish friends. When you first think of a divan it might bring to mind granny's old floral set-up with built-in padded drawers for storing crochet blankets, but this glorious version of the divan oozes modern Scandinavian style. It has a comfortable headboard and is upholstered in a pleasing neutral linen finish that is so on-trend. It's a little higher than Ikea's usual price point, at £1,190, but for the timeless and luxurious looks it will bring to your bedroom we think the investment is worth it.

Most romantic

Made from smooth untreated ash that can be finished as desired and set up with either the low or high end as the headboard. This contemporary bed frame will create a calming yet sophisticated feature in modern country schemes. Keep your backdrop simply decorated for a restful and stylish space. Here's another Ikea factoid: it is reported that one in 10 Europeans is conceived in an Ikea bed and when they are making sumptuous and stylish beds as good as this you can believe it.

8. Kura wooden bed frame

Best for kids

Children's rooms never have enough space for toys and storage so the Kura mid-sleeper is a fabulous budget solution. Plus, children will love creating their own funky den underneath the bed. Ikea cleverly sells separately other accessories to match and fit the bed like the fun canopy bed tent (£12.50) and soft folding gym mat (£25) seen here. If your child isn't quite ready for high-level sleeping, the frame is reversible and so can be built as an alternate regular four-poster version instead.
