This IKEA Trysil bed frame has a stronger structure than most of other IKEA’s bed frames. The reason behind that is the fact that the frame and the headboard are both supported by high quality, durable steel parts. Once assembled, this bed frame doesn’t move or wobble at all.

  1. I have a Trysil bed frame. I agree with the overall review. However, one MAJOR point not covered is a side effect of the slanted headboard: any pillow will slip down in between the headboard and the mattress easily and inevitably. We have six very large pillows on the bed in order to offset the fact that two or three of these will end up missing in between the headboard and the mattress each night. IKEA needs to come up with something more effective to close that gap, which for me offsets the value of being able to lay back comfortably and read. I’m tired of my pillows being swallowed up every night.

  2. Hi I just ordered and received this bed put it up and the slats keep falling down??? I’ve followed every bit of instructions can anyone help me with this
