Opportunity comes in many disguises! Platform beds are a great way to create extra storage space in limited areas. They’re also a lot of fun for younger kids, especially if you leave access to the ‘cubby’ in the middle! It’s a bit like giving them their own ‘secret room :)
Flat-pack kitchen cupboards are inexpensive, easy to assemble and most are very strong. After all, think how much weight is in those wall cabinets in your kitchen!
In this DIY bed project, IKEA cabinets were used and the result is a modern, minimalist bed design. But you can definitely get old or used kitchen cabinets to do this idea!
A platform bed allows for maximum use of space in a small room. By repurposing kitchen cabinets this bedroom idea just got even better since we can expect lower costs for the project!
Planning on redesigning your bedroom to maximize space? Then start sourcing for used kitchen cabinets to build your own platform bed!
See our album of platform beds from kitchen cabinets to get your inspiration! You can also learn how the featured bed was built by watching the video right below the gallery. :)
