First, check if you have a room with space enough to fit a regular bed or just a toddler bed. Other than the bed, babies’ rooms are the most jam-packed with all the clutter and toys. Plus, toddler babies usually play in their rooms so you would want to have enough space for them to also move around. Toddler beds are smaller so it wouldn’t consume that much space in the room. It is the best choice for a smooth transition. It will give your toddler enough the size of the bed and enough space in the room. While a regular bed gives more space to sleep in, its size can occupy much of the space in the room leaving your toddler with little space for a play area.
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.
If we take a Queen-sized bed as standard, the dimensions measure eight by four feet. Take a piece of MDF and build the headboard first, this should measure four feet in width to match the bed frame, but the height is up to you, although we would suggest two to three feet in height. After you have your headboard it is time to build the sides and footboard, also by using MDF. Depending on the look of your bed, you could design the footboard along similar lines to the headboard dimension wise, as long as it also measures four feet in width. The sideboards should obviously be eight feet in length. By utilising a powered jigsaw, the above steps should be quick and painless and if you’re feeling fancy you can even cut the top and tail boards to include curved edges. Use your sand/emery paper or sanding machine to smooth out any rough edges.
