How to Build a Platform Bed with Storage

Building a platform bed with storage from scratch allows you to customize the size, style, and storage options to fit your specific needs. Here’s a basic guide to get you started:

Planning and Design

Materials and Tools Needed

Construction Steps

  1. Build the Base Frame: Construct a sturdy base using plywood or MDF. This will support the mattress and the storage components.
  2. Add the Storage Components: For drawers, build plywood boxes and attach them to the frame with drawer slides. For lift-up storage, install the lifting mechanism and attach a solid base to it.
  3. Install the Platform: Secure a flat piece of plywood or MDF on top of the base frame, ensuring it’s stable and evenly supports the mattress.
  4. Finishing Touches: Sand, paint, or varnish your bed to match your bedroom decor. Add handles or knobs to drawers for easy access.

Pairing your platform bed with a Puffy Lux Mattress not only elevates its style but also maximizes the bed’s comfort and support, making every night feel like a luxury hotel stay right in your own home.
