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.
There has been much written about how it is supposedly bad Feng Shui to store items under a bed and an over-emphasized notion that air currents need to pass freely under a bed. I have never been able to correlate anything negative resulting with a client who has stored items under their bed, be it sweater boxes, earthquake supplies or exercise equipment. This is a popular myth that one can ignore. The color bed spread, pillows and sheets that one uses in accordance with Five Element Theory is uniquely reliant on the energies of the room, created at the time the house was built. In other words, there are no generic colors that should be used or not used. Ideal colors for a room are partially based on the orientation of the house and the location of the bedroom within the house. There is no specific height that a bed needs to be. Some people prefer a high one, others a low one. This is subjective and to your liking. Kids often like bunk beds and the low ceiling that the upper bed provides for the lower bed. It is very womb like and protective. While this might feel claustrophobic for an adult, it is okay for kids.
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.
