The right bed makes the room. In a bedroom, the bed dominates the room, grounds it, and is the focal point. All the other bedroom furniture simply compliments the bed.
So when it comes to designing a bedroom, I always start with the bed. And it better be grand!
Why Build Your Own Bed?
But the problem is, a beautiful bed can be very expensive – as in thousands of dollars. But the good news is beds are fairly easy to build, and for the size of the bed, astonishingly inexpensive. Most beds we build (including this one) include a platform (so no need for a box spring) – saving you even more money.
You can save upwards of 90 PERCENT OFF when you build your own bed!
If saving money isn’t incentive enough, consider being about to choose a custom finish, being able to customize the size, building a sturdier bed – there’s lots of reasons to go DIY. And let’s not forget – a solid wood bed is so beautiful!
