For those who wish to make their own bunk beds, there are many different plans that they can use as long as they have the right material. There are several design variations of bunk beds too like the traditional double beds, contemporary style wooden loft beds or bunk beds with innovative trundle designs. Metal or wood are the popular materials to make bunk beds.
Platform bed frames are popular in modern bedrooms for they have simple lines, may not have a box spring and are compact in size. Hence, they are suitable even for homes with smaller bedrooms for they do provide space under the bed to store additional stuff. Those who have the money to go in for higher end platform bed frames can get well-crafted designs that come in many rich finishes and different colors. The Japanese penchant for low furniture is what has inspired the platform bed frame design for most of them are built on clean lines, solid colors and are not very tall.
