There are certain pieces of furniture in a house that are essential and one of these is a bed. It doesn’t matter what kind of bed, be it single, double, Queen or even King-sized, but the fact of the matter is, everybody sleeps on a bed of some type for usually for a good 6-8 hours every day. With a piece of furniture so essential to everyday living, wouldn’t it be great if you could save the high cost of buying this bed by learning how to make one for yourself using woodworking bed plans.
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.
Choosing a new bed for your child can be a bit more challenging than choosing your own bed. This is because you also have to take into account your child’s safety. You want a bed that is not only comfortable and stylish but also appropriate for your child’s age. Ensuring that your child is safe in his bed will also give you peace of mind. When it comes to safety and comfort, platform beds will be on top of the list. Platform beds sit low to the ground which means that your child can climb in and out of the bed with ease. You also wouldn’t be worrying about your kid falling off from the bed while sleeping since the bed is only elevated a few inches from the ground. Platform beds also have a built-in foundation made from either solid wood panel or slat support system, making sure that your mattress is secure. With how the bed is designed to sit low to the ground, you can make a small room look roomier because it gives the illusion of a higher ceiling. By enhancing the visual space in the room and giving the room an airy feeling, you will also be providing a more comfortable environment for your child.
