With some regular tools and several IKEA kitchens cabinets, he managed to build a nice platform bed, through this technique he used the space under the bed to make a depot and storage all class of things, this is a good example of maximum storage within a minimal space.

He started by measuring the size of an ordinary mattress and making a diagram to know which type of cabinets he was going to use and how to locate them around the bed, with this information at hand he figured out that an amount of 7 cabinets was more than enough to do the project.

In the next step he assembled all the furniture but skipping the back panel in one of the cabinets, this will allow total access to all space beneath the bed once the full assembly is done. Then, he cut off and installed the framing boards behind the cabinets and in the walls, these serve as the main support for the logs under the mattress. After spacing equally all the transversal boards he secured the structure using the screws on both sides of the bed and in the middle section.
With all this finished the only things left was to put on top the mattress and adding a rubber surface to the stairs because without them it would be very slippery.

Voila! The result is a unique bed that combines functionality with efficiency. If you want to take a closer look at the instructions just click play on the video below. Don’t forget to share and comment on our section.
