One of the main benefits of making wooden loft bed is that it can help to free space on the floor by lifting the bed so that the space below it can be made usable. Of course, this requires a solid and resilient base. Many loft beds can be purchased through kits that can be assembled. If you want to make your own loft base, however, it is important that the solid and compact wood to ensure that the bed can withstand a large amount of weight.
In addition, the four vertical legs must be compatible with horizontal pieces placed between the legs at each end. This will help to balance and stabilize the wooden loft bed, so the legs are less likely to move from one side to another and keep the top stable. There are two different ways of making the top of the bed. If you want to use a box spring, then the top of the bed may simply be a wooden frame with edges that support the periphery of the box spring. While offering greater support, mattresses push the mattress, which can make it uncomfortably close to the ceiling.

If a box spring is not used, then the mattress support should come in the form of strips that should be fixed on the top of the wooden loft bed frame to provide support for the mattress in all areas. These slats can be made from thick plywood. Many home improvement stores will be able to cut sections of plywood to meet their own individual measurements.
