Since platform beds don’t have a box spring, the space underneath the bed can be used for storage. You can add drawers under the bed to maximize the room’s storage potential and also to help keep the room clutter-free. This is a useful feature in a kid’s bedroom to keep their toys and other things organized. Bunk beds are also among the popular choices when it comes to beds for kids. Most children love bunk beds particularly the top bunk. It is exciting for them to sleep high from the ground and some are even designed like a fortress to make it even more exciting for the child. This type of bed is also a practical choice if you want your kids to share a room and the room cannot accommodate separate beds for your children. Like platform beds, today’s bunk bed designs also come with storage features, allowing you to maximize the available space in the room for storage.
There are certain pieces of furniture in a house that are essential and one of these is a bed. It doesn’t matter what kind of bed, be it single, double, Queen or even King-sized, but the fact of the matter is, everybody sleeps on a bed of some type for usually for a good 6-8 hours every day. With a piece of furniture so essential to everyday living, wouldn’t it be great if you could save the high cost of buying this bed by learning how to make one for yourself using woodworking bed plans.
Attach the sideboards to the headboard and footboard using small screws and some wood adhesive, being careful not to crack the wood by using screws which are too big. Next we do the outer trims, which should again be cut using the same dimensions as the bed. Attach these to the bed frame. Now we move on to the slats which add stability to the bed. Cut a dozen of these pieces and attach them between the sideboards at regular even intervals. These can be screwed to the bed frame using small screws. If you have small joint cracks you can apply some of the filler/adhesive/spackle you bought to fill these in. Always perform a strength check at this point as any inherent weaknesses will be amplified at the finished stage by loose joints or cracked wood during the building process.
