Ikea kallax steps hack

As soon as we made Freddie’s London themed bedroom, we wanted to get him into a single sized bed as soon as possible.

I had always wanted a cabin or bunk bed when I was younger and so naturally for me I wanted to live my sleepy dreams through him.

We found a sleek cabin bed for him with lots of extra matching storage so this was perfect for his ever expanding toy tractors and monster trucks.

Freddie loved his new big boy bed but he struggled with coming down the ladders, this was such a worry for me as I didn’t want it to make him regress on his night time toilet use for fear of slipping off his ladder.

Myself and hubby wanted to incorporate storage into whatever we made into the stairs area.

We decided to use a single and double Kallax unit from Ikea and screw together to the bed to

make steps. Initially we were also going to add a rail but Freddie finds it super easy to use without.

The added bonus is that we can use he colour matching Drona inserts for toy or book storage.

It works so well and it’s very sturdy, it would also work with the Trofast system too!

  1. That’s such a super IKEA hack Emma and it fits the decor in Freddie’s room perfectly. Love the wall paper you used too and that cute little pillow of the three Queen’s guards under the bed. Where did you find it?


  2. As much as I live ikea, I usually don’t go for their steps b/c they’ve always looked plain & I usually go for decor w/more pizzazz. These steps go w/the rm that’s featured though.
