Placing two beds above each other helps conserve storage space utilization room

As a bunk bed is made with their own hands? Dividing the process into 3 stages, you will easily solve this problem. Particular attention is paid to advise the schema describing in detail each step of the assembly process.

Stage №1: Planning

The first thing to do - all the details to plan. You can, of course, take on the original design, full of all kinds of decorative elements and additional functional elements, but for the first time is better to start by creating a simple and comfortable bed, without complicated in implementation frills.

linear parameters

The dimensions of the bunk bed, even if it is planned for a child's room should be designed for an adult. After all, children grow into adolescence may have been quite impressive complexion.

Therefore I propose to focus on the following parameters:

Parameter Value
Length 190.4 cm
Width 74.4 cm
The height of the entire bed 180 cm
The distance from the floor to the first floor 20 cm
The distance from the floor to the second floor 122 cm
Total drawing bunk child must contain linear dimensions of both floors and staircases point seat arrangement

To ensure the correctness of the chosen height of the beds, do the appropriate marks on the wall and beat the situation in which you will get out of the lower bed. If your head at the same time will not cross the line of the top floor, then everything is in order, and when lifting the bed downstairs neighbor will not strike the beam of the second tier.

Key pieces

Bunk beds for children or adults should consist of:

  • Stands - 4 things.;
  • Berths in the form of shelves with edging and fences - 2 pcs .;
  • StairsLeading to the second tier - 1 pc .;
  • mattresses dimensions 180 x 70 cm - 2 pieces.
Mattresses due to its ability to take the shape of a person lying on them for maximum comfort during sleep

Stage №2: preparation of all necessary

Make a bunk bed is best from softwood. Sawing can be performed at home in the presence of suitable equipment or order a ready-made pieces:

necessary Timber

  • For bed racks:
Material dimensions amount
Board 1800 90 22 mm 2 pcs.
Board 1680 by 90 by 22 mm 2 pcs.
Board 1800 70 22 mm 2 pcs.
Board 1680 70 22 mm 2 pcs.
The fewer defects on the board purchased, the less you will have a difficulty in its treatment

  • for fencing:
Material dimensions amount
Board 1764 70 22 mm 3 pcs.

  • for stairs:
Material dimensions amount
timber 1360 70 40 mm 4 things.

Stage №3: assembly process

Assembling a bunk bed with his hands in the following manner:

Blueprints Description
Manufacturing of racks:
  • Contractible at right angles two boards using clamps, or to them it will be difficult to work;
  • Drill holes for the fasteners;
  • Screwing in these screws;
  • Remove the clamps;
  • The upper part of the resulting product are cut off at a radius jigsaw;
  • Grind places slices sandpaper;
  • Repeat this process three more times to get in the end four poles.
Production of stairs:
  • Take three gymnastic sticks and sawed them in half-meter lengths;
  • The racks pen drill drill holes under the crossbar 30 mm and a depth of 15 mm every 200 mm;
  • Insert your own hands segments gymnastic sticks in the nest and the resulting anchoring screws;
  • The edges of the pillars are cut off at a radius jigsaw and grind.
Build shelves:
  • Plywood cut in the upper and lower tier of the two workpiece dimensions 124 mm by 70 and 62 to 70 mm. This double structure of the shelves will reduce the strain rate of the material under load;
  • From bars collect two frames. For this pre-cut in their special recesses;
  • Using a spirit level check perpendicularity connected fragments;
  • We fix plywood panels with screws on the receiving frame in increments of 200 mm;
  • Ready bed elements in the form of shelves dried, and then grind the faces
Mounting shelves:
  • On the inner side of the columns to note the location of beds;
  • Contractible rack with shelves by means of clamps;
  • Control the perpendicularity of a spirit level connected elements;
  • Apply markup Wizard;
  • Drill holes;
  • Screws fasten shelves to the uprights
Installation of decorative edging:
  • Measure the distance between the uprights;
  • In accordance with the findings of the board are sawn into fragments edging;
  • Fasten them with screws below scaffolds 50 mm. This will allow to hide from prying eyes bars
Installing stairs:
  • Left ladder rack is attached to the bedposts with three screws;
  • Right - upper edging to two and one to the bottom.
Fixing the bed:
  • Drill holes in the wall of the children's room;
  • Fasten it collected bed by means of brackets;
  • Mattresses stacked on shelves.

Before twist wooden construction elements are screws, they recommend promazyvat compound joiner's glue. This will increase their reliability and durability.

Benefits

That can be isolated from the advantages of a self-made bunk beds? Let's get to it from different sides of the issue:

  • Low price. Of course, the materials you will still have to spend money, but it will come out much cheaper than buying ready-made factory model;
Bunk Bed in wood factory production is much more expensive home-made version

  • Confidence in the quality of materials. Bed for children in the first place should be completely safe. In this you can be sure only if choose the wood and plywood. Unscrupulous same manufacturer can use in order to save, for example, particle board, emit harmful formaldehyde to the health of people;
  • Originality. We have seen how a simple two-story structure is going. But in the future you gain experience, it can make any adjustments and additions to the original layout;
As may be additions, for example, set the level of the bed side boxes that facilitate lifting on the second tier, and adds storage space

And, of course, we should mention that, finally, two of your offspring will be able to comfortably accommodate even a small children's room of our small apartments.
