Built for the tall amongst us, IKEA beds are longer than UK sizes so you can find yourself a bed that fits your long legs. Space in bed can be a real issue for those who are blessed with height. Particularly finding beds that are too short and having to either turn to the fetal position or just accept your legs are dangling for life.
We’ve put together a guide showing you everything you need to know about IKEA bed sizes from the difference between IKEA beds and UK beds to what mattress you’ll need.
UK vs IKEA Bed Sizes
