The disadvantage of getting a toddler bed is it can only be used for some time. These beds can only be used for babies about one and a half to three and a half years of age. After that, it would be useless. This can be just an additional cost. So if getting a new bed for your toddler is as easy as you think, put it this way: weigh the pros and cons. Remember a baby would be the one sleeping on it so it would require a little more caution. Think also of your budget. If for the mean time you can only spend this much for a bed, then better to get a less costly one.
A bed is in fact a very personal space and it is best to not use a bed that was owned by someone else for a long time. In many cultures, a newly married couple will receive a new mattress and some people get a new mattress whenever they move into a new house. Many people instinctually do not want to keep a mattress slept in by a former spouse. There is a feeling by most people that residual energies, if not just memories, linger with the old bed and past relationships. Four poster beds with a canopy cover end up being good remedies for beds under exposed beams. The fabric of the canopy can deflect the downward pressure of a beam. That said, you don’t want a bed that is too large and overbearing for a smallish room. It is not good or bad Feng Shui to have night stands and you can ignore the New Age myth that a single woman needs to have two night stands in order to get into a relationship.
The slats and connected bed frame should be able to take your full adult weight spread evenly over the entire bed. Although people often stand on beds, this is only on top of the mattress which evenly distributes the weight across all of the slats. If you find any weaknesses or cracked wooden beams, remove and replace these parts and ensure all connections and joints are tight. Your bed frame should now be complete, all you need to do is drop on the mattress and duvet and fix those hospital corners and the bed is ready for some serious sleeping. Creating a simple bed is really that simple, although clearly any woodworking bed plans you use or purchase will go into much greater detail, but hopefully this article has allayed any fears about the possibility of building your own bed from scratch.
