Tips Before DIY Bed Storage
Bed Storage – It can be difficult to find the storage you need, so it is sometimes necessary to make your own. A storage bed is easy to make, and you can make yourself using found materials and storage pieces. A storage bed can be used to store almost anything, including clothes, toys, and books. Chuck Coaster, a home improvement specialist Appleville, Minn., Shares some suggestions on how to make your own storage bed.
Measure the length and width of the bed. If you still do not have a bed and you are trying to make a storage bed, get the typical measurements for the size of the desired bed, a twin, full, queen or king. Decide how much storage you would like for your bed. Typically, storage beds have a set of drawers or cubes on one side so that the bed can be pushed against the wall. You can also have storage on both sides of the bed, as long as you keep the bed away from the wall. Take full measurements of the areas in which you would like storage.
Decide if you want storage drawers or storage cubes under your bed. Cubes can be used in a variety of ways like shelves, with doors or without doors. or as drawers, with fabric and plastic inserts can be purchased at a discount store such as Walmart or Target. Buy the number of drawers or cubes to fill the amount of space that has been previously measured for. Take them home and assemble them.
