The first factor that you need to consider while making a bunk bed is its purpose, i.e., you need to consider the person who is going to use it. The age of the person also matters, as several aspects of the plan such as the dimensions, structure, and the utilities and fixtures that are to be attached to the bed depends on the person. While sketching the plans, you will also need to consider some other aspects such as material that you are going to use and the frame of the bed that you are going to construct. Here are some plans that you may consider before having a bed for your loved one.
The 'table under the bed', is not exactly new one. It is usually used for space management. As the name implies, the table is placed under the level of bunk bed. It is usually suitable to build these type of beds in rooms that have high ceilings and large windows, as sleeping on the bunk, and having a congested atmosphere proves to be uncomfortable. The appropriate choice of material is wood. Maple or teak in a polished form with an accompaniment of plywood works wonders.
A bunk bed does not mean that you need to have only 'beds' in such types of furniture; you can be creative and churn out some excellent plans with the help of storage spaces. You may employ some innovative means to do so, such as making a set of drawers within the bed. You may also have a small chamber cupboard on each bunk. This might increase the cost a bit, but on the positive side, you will get more storage space. The space beneath the lower bunk is often employed for the purpose of making storage spaces. At times, it is used to make pullout drawers. This space can also be utilized to make an additional pullout bed.
