Beneath the IKEA NORDLI bed frame is the slatted base. For many reasons, many beds need well-formed slatted bases because of their versatile use.

Slats are good with different types of foams; this gives the owner of this bed frame a wide range of options when they need to buy the right mattress for their IKEA NORDLI bed frame.

The slatted base, which can also be adjusted to fit the type of mattress used, is also essential for the purpose of weight distribution when the owners sleep on the bed. The importance of weight distribution helps to prevent excessive pressure on one part of the bed frame. Slats are therefore necessary to prevent quick wear and tear of the bed.

  1. Excellent bed frame when its new, Only lasted a year before the slats started breaking. No replacement slats are available. No help from Ikea. Will never buy again from them. Flushed 500 down the toilet. Found a video online showing how to bulk up the support so it doesn’t break. Looks like (4) 2×4’s and an afternoon. A little to late. I suggest not buying it.

  2. beautiful frame but slats broke in less than 4 years. since it is custom size couldn’t find a slat that can replace. no option to purchase the slat alone. the frame cant be used without the slat, so now we are looking to make a slat ourselves. perhaps, we should learn making a frame too, that way we wont spend $700+ that just evaporates in 4 years.
