Ikea bed slats, Ikea beds are true innovations compared to traditional beds. American traditional beds used to have a box spring placed under the mattress for support which Ikea beds eliminated with the use of bed slats. Ikea bed slats have many benefits over the box springs starting with better air circulation for temperature preservation. Ikea bed slats’ allowance of air circulation does not only maintain constant temperature but doesn’t allow dust mites that can build up in the box spring’s fabric.
Modern beds use bed slats similar to the Ikea bed slats instead of box springs because they don’t need deep space and so Ikea is able to produce modern platform and low profile beds. Ikea bed slats are either adjustable of nonadjustable. The nonadjustable Ikea bed slats include the LADE, LURÖY and LAXEBY. The LADE is the cheapest which is made of pine wood slats attached together with a ribbon of the sides.
The LURÖY’s bed slats are also attached with webbed ribbon but the slats are made of laminated curved wood which is more springy and durable. The LAXEBY is the most expensive Ikea bed of the three where the slats are the same of the LURÖY but they use an extruded rubber like band made up of a series of attached cups that slide over the ends of the slats to keep them together.
