As every project, a DIY bed frame project begins with good planning. You need to choose the right material. You can choose from solid wood species, metal, used pallets, plywood, etc. The choice of material will be determined by the style of your furniture and the overall design concept for the bedroom. It is necessary to decide whether it will be a platform bed, whether you need a single or double structure, choose the type of headboard and determine the number and shape of the supports (in other words, the legs). As far as legs are concerned – think whether they will be round or flat or if you have chosen a platform bed, you will not have legs at all. At this stage it is a good idea to draw a sketch of the future bed and all of its elements to correctly calculate the amount of material required. You also need to think of the mattress itself. Obviously, the size of the mattress will be decisive for the size of the frame.

One of the most common materials used in making beds, and any kind of furniture is, of course, wood. Natural, environmentally friendly and safe raw materials will always be the most preferred option. Try not to use chipboard or low-quality plywood, it is better to choose solid wood. When selecting boards, make sure that they are free of cracks and dents, the wood should be flat and well dried and the boards themselves – ground. It is not necessary to buy boards from valuable wood species – pine will also do. Plywood can be used as an alternative to wood. This material is not so reliable, but it has a much lower cost.
