The bedroom is the most important room in a house by Feng Shui criteria, and many articles expound on this topic. But the bed its self, apart from the bedroom, is the subject of much misinformation, so this article will attempt to cover some of the major concerns. The shape of the bed should be a stable square shape as most beds are. In the 1960’s there was a brief trend in having round beds (so Austin Powers!) Round beds are not practical and they do not provide a stable sleeping atmosphere. They make energy swirl, which might be okay for other activities besides sleeping. There is nothing inherently bad about a water bed, popularized also in the 1960’s and 1970’s. Since the water is totally sealed inside the bed, it would not even work as the water element if a room needed water present.
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 start by taking a look at the wood, we would advise using MDF (medium density fibreboard) for the bed as this will give it an overall strength. For your army of tools you’ll require saws, sanding machines or paper and ideally a jigsaw plus nail gun, although obviously you can start with the more manual tools like a simple hammer, but you will find a small investment in tools will make all of your woodwork projects much easier time and effort wise. Don’t forget other sundries including nails, screws, adhesives, filler and spackle to cover over thin cracks in the wood joints.
