Beds, again. High end custom or IKEA?
I know this question has been raised previously, by me I think. I'm interested in hearing from people one more time it.
Cottage master bedroom, very small bedroom (10'6" x 12). I really need a storage bed with drawers so I can forego a dresser. Will have peg & rail system to casually hang clothes too.
We can afford an expensive bed. I also have no problem with an IKEA bed, particularly for a part-time vacation bed. I've already purchased a very good quality mattress, btw (not IKEA).
I don't like the idea of disposable furniture, which makes me lean to investing in a custom piece. But when I compare the prices, I baulk. What do you think? I'm not suggesting that the custom bed and the Malm are in the same league, they aren't. I'm just having trouble figuring out what league I'm in.
Very high quality, nearly local, custom bed, available in white oak (without side tables), approximately $5k:
Malm in white oak, $500 with the higher quality slats:
