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.
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.
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.
