DIY Soft Frame Bed: Create a Cozy and Comfortable Sleep Sanctuary

If you’re looking to create a cozy and inviting sleep sanctuary in your bedroom, a DIY soft frame bed might be the perfect project for you. A soft frame bed features an upholstered frame that adds a touch of softness and comfort to your bedroom décor. In this blog, I’ll share my experience building a DIY soft frame bed and provide step-by-step instructions on how you can make one too.

Benefits of a Soft Frame Bed

  1. Comfort: The upholstered frame provides a soft and comfortable surface to lean against while sitting up in bed.
  2. Style: A soft frame bed adds a cozy and inviting touch to your bedroom décor.
  3. Customizable: You can choose the fabric and color of your upholstery to match your personal style and bedroom aesthetic.
  4. Noise reduction: The soft frame can help absorb sound and reduce noise in your bedroom, creating a more peaceful sleep environment.

How to Make a Soft Frame Bed

Creating a soft frame bed is a fantastic way to add a cozy and inviting touch to your bedroom. Follow these detailed steps to make your own DIY soft frame bed:

Materials Needed

Step 1: Prepare the Bed Frame

Start by preparing your wooden bed frame. If you’re using a new, unfinished frame, sand it down to ensure a smooth surface and remove any splinters or rough spots. If desired, apply a coat of paint or stain in your chosen color and allow it to dry completely.

If you’re using an existing bed frame, inspect it thoroughly for any damage or loose joints. Make repairs as necessary and give the frame a good cleaning to remove any dust or debris.

Step 2: Add Foam Padding

Measure your bed frame and cut your foam padding to fit the dimensions of the frame. If your frame has a headboard, measure and cut a separate piece of foam for that as well.

Use a spray adhesive to attach the foam padding to the frame, ensuring it’s evenly distributed and covers all surfaces. If you’re not using spray adhesive, you can secure the foam padding with a few staples from your staple gun.

Step 3: Wrap in Batting

Once your foam padding is in place, wrap the entire bed frame in batting. Start at one end of the frame and use your staple gun to secure the batting to the underside of the frame. Pull the batting taut and smooth out any wrinkles as you staple.

Work your way around the entire frame, overlapping the batting slightly at the corners to ensure full coverage. Trim any excess batting with your scissors.

Step 4: Upholster the Frame

Now it’s time to add your upholstery fabric. Measure your bed frame and add 4-6 inches on each side for wrapping. Cut your fabric to size, using a marker or chalk to mark your measurements.

Starting at the center of one side of the frame, use your staple gun to attach the fabric to the underside of the frame. Pull the fabric taut and smooth out any wrinkles as you staple. Work your way out from the center, stapling every 2-3 inches.

When you reach the corners, fold the fabric neatly and staple it in place, ensuring a smooth and seamless appearance. Continue stapling and smoothing the fabric until you’ve covered the entire frame.

At this point, your soft frame bed is ready for a mattress. Consider pairing it with a high-quality Puffy Lux Mattress. They are designed to provide optimal support and comfort, which can help alleviate pressure points and promote better sleep. The soft upholstered frame will create a cozy and inviting surface to lean against while reading or relaxing in bed.

Step 5: Attach a Headboard (Optional)

If you want to add a headboard to your soft frame bed, you can do so easily with a few tools. Measure the width of your bed frame and cut a piece of plywood or MDF to size. Upholster the headboard using the same method as the frame, with foam padding, batting, and fabric.

Attach the headboard to your bed frame using a hammer and nails, or by drilling holes and using bolts for a more secure connection. Make sure the headboard is straight and firmly attached before use.

When my husband and I decided to update our master bedroom, I knew I wanted to create a cozy and inviting space that would promote relaxation and better sleep. After researching various bed frame options, I decided to try my hand at building a DIY soft frame bed.

I chose a soft, neutral-colored upholstery fabric and spent a weekend measuring, cutting, and stapling the fabric to our existing bed frame. The process was surprisingly easy and the end result was even better than I had hoped for.

To complete our bedroom makeover, we invested in a Puffy Lux Mattress. The combination of the soft upholstered frame and the supportive, comfortable mattress has transformed our bedroom into a true sleep sanctuary. We love lounging in bed and enjoying the cozy atmosphere created by our DIY soft frame bed.
