Ever wonder where the concept of bunk beds came from? The truth is no one can actually verify their debut. They have been around for many years and for generations they have occupied the bedrooms and hearts of parents and children.
In the early days of the modern and popular bunk bed, you simply would have two boxy, similar shaped and sized bunk beds perched one on top of another. Today's modern and funky bunk beds come in a whole myriad of designs, shapes, colors and materials.
There are design plans available if you decide you want to build a bunk bed. They include do-it-yourself instructions. While some include plans about the bunks only. other also include plans on how to build drawers and other features.
The plans explain how to build the infrastructure and attach the beds. Some plans advice to use box springs to support the mattress rather than merely plywood which makes the bunk bed more comfortable for kids.
When you are building a bunk bed you need to pay special attention to safety because the bed will not be subject to quality control testing like those made in stores. Safety tips to keep in mind are to make sure the top bunk has guard rails on all four sides and it’s critical to ensure that the mattress fits snugly on all sides of the bed, the bed frame is sturdy and the ladder must be firmly connected to the bed.
Building your bunk bed also provides the ability for customization. You can select the type of wood, the finish, etc., as well as add ornaments such that meet your tastes and style. By taking extra precautions and care, it is possible for the bunk bed you build to be even safer than those created in factories.
