I recently bought a brimnes bed with the drawers and the headboard, I love the look and the functionality in my very small studio, however, the bed rocks when getting in and out, I have put together a lot of ikea furniture and this is the first time that I am a little disappointed with the purchase.
I have already removed the mattress and looked at every possible junction and they are all very tight so any ideas for fixing this problem??
Does this mean that the Brimnes bed is not stable without the headboard? I just bought and assembled one (a double) yesterday. I didn't really like the headboard, so I didn't get it - and my frame definitely has some stability issues along the long axis; it rocks a little and creaks, and very definitely would not stand up to any repeated movement or strain.
I've checked the assembly, and it seems square and everything tight, but do I need to go back for the headboard?
You would be better to search the forum on Aspelund and, if you cannot find your answer, start a new thread as people with Aspelund beds may well not see this as this thread is about Brimnes.
That said, any bed that has a post at each corner will usually sit nice and level regardless of how uneven the floor is. A bed that has a long panel headboard/footboard that sits on the floor will always rock on an uneven floor.
If you bed rocks then either it has been assembled incorrectly or your floor isn't level. If you can eliminate the first option then you just need to find where it rocks and either move the bed to a better position, pack it out where it rocks or level the floor.
