IKEA MALM Double Bed Mattress Fitment Help/Suggestions

Hi, bought this bed from this deal. I was after a mattress but was surprised to see that IKEA sizing is different. It's only 3 cm smaller than standard in width and 1cm longer in length.

Has anyone used a non-ikea mattress on that frame with success or should I just go for an Ikea mattress?

EDIT - Anyone used a ZZZ- Atelier on it?

Thanks in advance

  • It's only 3 cm smaller than standard in width and 1cm longer in length.

    It still fits non-ikea mattresses perfectly fine. I use a tempur mattress on mine.

    • Thanks heaps, do you know which setting the slats are installed at (on the highest/lowest)?

      • That depends on the thickness of the mattress. I've got mine on the lower setting because I've got a thick mattress.

        • oh, so the mattress actually sits inside the area?I thought it would be sitting a bit out.

          I built the frame today and found out that it was the size state before.
