Bunk Beds: Why you Should Build Your Own

If you have kids, chances are you have thought about getting bunk beds for their room. These are the perfect kid-friendly furnishings. They are a space saver, are enjoyable for the children and look great at the same time. There are many types of bunk beds available in furniture shops, but if you really want to do it right, building your own is the only way to go. There are many reasons this is the best choice.

An Affordable Option

When you build, you avoid all of the added costs of a purchased bed. The profit tacked on by the manufacturer, the shipper and the seller. The money you do spend will actually go directly towards the quality of the materials you purchase.

Customize the Style and Size

When you build, you can create a set of bunk beds that will fit the room they are going into exactly. With a small room you can choose a design with storage options. Or you can find plans for a more expansive set if you have a large space to fill. Unlike pre made beds, bunk bed plans can be adjusted some to work with architectural features of the room or any other special needs you or your child may have.

Safe and Secure

When you are letting your children sleep up in the air, you want to know the surface they are sleeping on is stable. By building your own you will know there have been no short cuts taken. You can be guaranteed that only solid wood has been used and all of the nuts, bolts and screws are in place where they need to be.

Building bunk beds may sound difficult and it is a big project, but not necessarily an overly complex one. Anyone with some woodworking experience and a modest set of tools can successfully complete this type of project. There are plenty of plans available for any style of bunk beds you and your child may prefer. By choosing a concise and easy to follow plan, your child could be sleeping in their new bed in just a few days.
