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.
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.
A headboard is not absolutely essential, but very helpful when a bed is near a low window. A solid headboard will pass as a faux wall and provide stability and block a draft over the head. Once in a while you may read about the shape of the headboard being significant and in my early studies I read a book which cautioned against having a headboard that looked like a tombstone marker. This should not be a big concern for anyone. There is nothing superior or inferior about a bed frame’s construction materials. Bed frames can be made of wood, metal or even some other material like marble. One can do without a bed frame and just sleep on a mattress or futon if they like. However, some rooms need the metal element and if so, then a metal bed frame can provide about 30+ pounds of metal just in the frame its self. Some bed frames have an overhang with lighting for reading and this is like a miniature beam over the head, possibly contributing to sleeping problems. It is also not ideal to have a bed with a mirrored headboard of a mirrored ceiling. The power of a mirror can be too strong in a sleeping area.
