What Is the Maximum Mattress Thickness for IKEA Nyvoll Bed?

Good Questions

Pin it button big
Q: Hello! I am considering buying an IKEA Nyvoll bed to use with slats and my current pillow top mattress. I am concerned that the 15 inch thickness of my mattress will not be compatible with the bed, however. I am aware that it has adjustable bed rails, but the website doesn't indicate how low it can go, and I don't want my mattress to swallow the headboard! 

Does anyone have experience with this? I appreciate the help!
