IKEA Luroy bed slat hack and Jonaxel drawers for closet

Hi. Just wanted to share a couple of things we did to our 19 that others might find helpful.

To raise the mattress for ventilation, we used IKEA’s Luroy bed slats plus 3 or 4 bags of 1 in. wooden cubes and double sided tapes both bought from Dollar Tree and attached 2 cubes on each end of the slats to raise them up. It has so far held up well.

For the closet, we bought the following Jonaxel drawer organizer from IKEA, which fits almost perfectly (we have the optional drawer below the closet). To get it to sit flushed to one side of the closet, we had to use a half-inch strip of rubber we cut off from our bathroom floor mat. To prevent the drawers from sliding out during travel, we use a bungee cord across them.

We have so far been happy with these simple solutions.

It's always nice to see folks doing mods to make their Escape their own.

I must have used a different model of IKEA bed slats when I did that mod in my 19 several years ago. Instead of having to raise it for ventilation I cut down the under lying frame about an 1". Whatever works.

We were looking for the slats you got but IKEA no longer seem to carry it. So we went with the next best solution.

That explains the difference. I was wondering.

Well, glad there was an alternative, ventilation is good.

The Lonset slats were discontinued but are now being brought back as a new item. The Ikea stores in Fl. are currently restocking then. I just bought a set this week.

Did you cut the slats to maintain access to storage underneath.

Also any tips on wrestling with the mattress?

Don't cut the slats.

I managed to do what I had to do under that area without lifting the mattress up and trying to then open the lid and then deal with whatever was in there. Too heavy and awkward for me.
