Smile Bunk Beds - Save Space

Hi I am WINTER from California these days I am Thinking about wood bunk beds because I need some furniture for our school hostel. Wood bunk beds is a type of bed made of wood; two beds are made and one is stacked on top of the other. When two beds are stacked together this way, they form a bunk bed. These types of beds are used in places where the floor space is limited. They allow people to sleep on beds in the same room while using minimum space in the room. If your room is congested and you are sharing it with your smaller brother, well, it is the solution for your problems. It will create extra space, in that the space that was occupied by the two beds will be available and you can be able to bring in your computer desk and work on your homework in your room. They are usually used in places having limited floor space like army garrisons, school dormitories, prison cells and student's hostel.

I want to read ideas in your minds.?

There are nice plans available online for building bunk beds. One thing to remember is pillows like to escape so it is a good idea to frame in the sides to prevent this. When my son was ready to move from a crib to a bed I built a small frame similar to a bunk bed design sized to fit the crib mattress. He loved his new bed which was scaled perfectly for his short little legs. Knowing how boys can be boys I built it to be bullet proof. I used 3/4" plywood to support the mattress. The sides were 1x6" pine boards and the corner posts were made from a 2x4" split lengthwise. To keep it simple and easy to clean I painted it white. I am sure your beds will be designed to fit twin mattresses but the same concept is easy to work with.
