Metal bunk bed with desk are a great way to maximize space in a room, if you have a room for two children or just want a convenient space for sleep visitors. As a do-it-yourself project, you are pretty simple even if you want to be sure you do it right. You do not want to make any mistakes in building your children’s sleeping space.
When building your bunk beds, consider the size of the mattress you will be using. In general, the twin size is better although a double bed can be made. Build the frame to be about a half inches larger than the dimensions of the mattress. When determining the height of the support posts, make sure that the person assigned to the lower berth can sit comfortably in the bed. Be sure to leave at least 12 inches of post above the upper level of the top bunk, if you intend to include a handrail.
A platform bed is a variation of fun on bunk beds, where there is only one bunk above, leaving room for a desk, chair or storage below. If you want to try this, be sure to place three sides (2 short and one long) 2 to 3 feet off the ground. Otherwise, the support posts will not have sufficient stability. Another variation is to place a mattress only on the bottom bunk, leaving the top bunk for storage. This system uses the same methods as the construction of a regular berth.
