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.
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.
However, there is also the issue of safety. There is the danger of your child falling from the top bunk while sleeping or playing and sustain injuries. This is what you want to avoid at all costs. If a bunk bed is your only option, then you have to take the necessary safety precautions to ensure your child’s safety. First, you need to ensure that the bed is made from sturdy materials. There should also be safety railings on each side of the bed to keep your kid secure while sleeping. The ladder should also be durable and make sure that your child uses the ladder to climb. The mattress should also fit perfectly to the bed. By following these safety precautions, you can help reduce the risk of injuries and provide a safe and comfortable bed for your child.
