DIY Mattress Platform

Building a DIY mattress platform can be a rewarding project that adds a custom touch to your bedroom while providing the perfect foundation for your mattress.

Design and Planning

Construction Steps

  1. Building the Frame: Construct a sturdy frame using your measured lumber. Reinforce the corners for added stability.
  2. Adding Support Slats: Evenly space wooden slats across the frame. The slats provide crucial support and prevent mattress sagging. Ensure they are securely attached to the frame.
  3. Additional Support Features: For larger bed sizes, consider adding a center support rail and extra legs to prevent any bowing or bending in the middle of the platform.
