IKEA house bed: The best ideas for sleeping under the roof

Where is it almost as nice as sleeping under the stars? Exactly, in a cosy, roofed IKEA house bed! If you occasionally visit Pinterest or Instagram in search of inspiration for special children's rooms, then you've probably seen this dreamy IKEA hack before. We've put together the best variations for you and show you how to recreate them.

Classic: IKEA house bed with roof

The classic version consists of the IKEA KURA cot* and a roof constructed from wooden slats. Sounds simple enough, doesn't it?


Here's what you need for the roof frame:

  • four wooden slats 66.5 cm long, cut the ends at a 45-degree angle
  • one wooden slat 200 cm long for the upper beam
  • Wooden connectors (right-angled and straight) and screws

Hausbett DIY

Step 1: Prepare the roof

For the pitched roof of the IKEA house bed, grab the shorter wooden slats and fasten them together first, so that you end up with two large right angles made of wood. Use the right-angled wooden connectors (inside and outside) to fasten them. Next comes the turn of the long roof batten . Connect these to the right angles using two straight wooden connectors.

Step 2: Fasten the roof

Almost done! Now screw the wooden slats to the cot* . The best way to do this is to use your wooden connectors again. Make sure that everything is secure and that the joints of the wooden slats are sanded down properly. And then your IKEA house bed is ready!

You can now perfect your project with the matching decorative foils in your favourite design.

We think the staircase with the Trofast boxes for additional storage space in the children's room is particularly successful. You can find the matching order stickers for the boxes in our shop.

The romance of a wooden hut

It's hard to believe that this house bed from by the lovely @mei_lupo is the IKEA Kura, isn't it? With great attention to detail the bunk bed has been converted into a cosy wooden hut. We are completely in love!

Make it easy for yourself - glue the house bed instead of building it!

Play paradise with a sail roof

We're cheating a little with this house bed because it doesn't have a wooden roof, but we thought the idea of a sail roof was sooo cool. The bed is like a real play paradise and offers space for 2 little adventurers.
