I'll be putting together my MALM bedframe tomorrow and noticed the choice on the side rail/support depth & the notes on this forum related to it. I'll be using the slats with a 12" memory foam mattress. Should I use the upper or lower set of holes?
The lower holes may give you a more ideal height for the mattress, but they create an issue with trying to change the linens and make the bed because of the added depth. The difference is only an inch or two, but with a heavy mattress, it's enough to consider the higher setting. I generally use the lower holes only for my customers who have a box spring.
Thanks ... good suggestions. I also have the MALM occasional table so I'll see how that fits with the lower set of holes - as I do like the looks of the lower mattress better.
Thought I'd get it all done today but just go the headboard, the occasional table and part of the bed done. Surprised at how easy it is to put together and how clear the
are to follow.
Follow up - used the lower holes for the mattress and it is just perfect!
Assembly was ok - needed help only to get the head/foot boards attached to the side boards. Other than that it was easy by myself. I did however draw blood when attaching the cross metal pieces to the hamar midbeam
