What Do I Order with My IKEA Bed Frame?

We just purchased the Norslund bed tonight. We asked an IKEA employee whether we needed slats or not if we were going to use a mattress and boxed springs. She told us that the slats are for if you are not going to use boxed springs and that we just needed the midbeam along with the headboard/footboard and sides. I think the IKEA website is a bit confusing because it says you have to purchase the slatted bed base, but you only need that if you are not going to use box springs. Edit: If you are planning on purchasing a king bed from IKEA to use with box springs, I would suggest buying the slats. Since king box springs come as two twin box springs, the midbeam does not provide enough support in my and my husband's opinion. If you are buying a twin, double, or queen, you really wo not need the slats since the box spings for those are one single piece.

A board between the mattress and the frame would do more than the floor

10. what is the strongest metal a bed frame can be made of?

My suggestion would be to have the 4X4 post right in the corner of the frame but touching the frame. Drill a hole through the frame and screw the post to the frame through the metal and into the post with (at least) 2" lag bolts. You should also think about supporting the posts horizontally with a 2X4 joining each post to each other on at least 3 sides. This will keep the legs from spreading outwards and the bed collapsing in the centre of the posts and crashing to the floor. If you want to keep the front side open, you can get away with putting the horizontal brace across the front of the bed up high, right under the frame at the top of the posts or right on the floor at the foot of the posts
