    Which MALM accessory did you get for next to your bed? Do you like it?

    Choices are...

    or other? Do you like it? I'll probably end up getting the two drawer table-- not sure if I like the ones that attach.

    I have the full headboard in the same color as the picture. I like it but the only problem is the wheels do not roll well on my carpet. It is a bit tough to pull out the sliding shelves. I do like that I have the top part for a couple of lamps.

    Bought the bed and 2 two drawer side tables today-- in black. Can't wait to set it all up.

    Now I have the dilemma of choosing sheets and a duvet. Can't decide on colors and I suck at doing this stuff. I'm thinking grey sheets, maybe dark grey and a blue duvet. But I'm not sure. Any suggestions?

    I have something similar to nr 2. Works perfect. Big enough for a book, a glass and reading lamp. And you get the storage space, and people cant see whats inside.

    a new ikea is opening 15min from me instead of driving 2 hours to get to one. im probably buying the malm with the 3rd option.

    How is the quality of the Malm series? The nearest IKEA is like 3 hours away, not ridiculous, but far enough where I don't really want to drive to check it out.

    Can't decide if I want the big roll out unit as well. I'm guessing it just sits behind the normal Malm head board? Anyone have any experience with this combo? Like how sturdy it is...etc..

    yeah, it just sits behind the headboard so that the drawers are hidden unless unrolled

    the quality is pretty decent. my bed has withstood several moves. you can't beat it for the price.

    Do you have that roll away unit? I'm pretty set on getting that bed with that piece behind it. I was just worried about stability, I don't want the thing moving all over the place, if you know what I mean:naughty:. Does the head board attack in any way to the rolling storage unit?

    I don't have it. I've played around with it a few times in-store and it always seems stable. knowing ikea, it will attach to the headboard, just like the first option above does.
