Platform bed plans can help you create the best loft or platform bed for any sized room. A platform bed is a little different than a loft bed. The platform beds boston are lifted up off of the floor, on a wood platform. This platform can be a few inches or a few feet high. They can have drawers and cup boards built into them to store clothes, toys, or just about anything that needs to be stored out of the way. How many drawers is depends on the size of the bed, whether it is designed to sit more in the middle of the floor or against the wall. A platform bed that sits in the middle part of the room may have drawers on both sides; the wall bed will have access to just one side. Because they have storage space under them, you can put them in smaller rooms that may not have space for a separate bureau, or chest of drawers. This means they are ideal for children rooms, or dorm rooms, where space is limited. They can be made from a variety of different wood materials, with finishes that will match just about any decor.
