Single bunk beds are very useful and convenient when you have a room in your house that doesn't have enough space for two beds. These types of beds are ideal for children because they allow them to have a separate bed while their parents can have another one if they want to. However, you should know that these types of beds are very expensive compared to the normal beds and usually require an extra room. They are also bulky and take up some space, so you can find some bunk beds that are not really that durable. But then again, this is only the case if you don't really care about your kids' health and safety and just want them to be in one room for a while.
You can make your own single bunk beds at home if you are a DIY person and if you want to save some money. However, if you are going to buy a pre-made one then this may be a better option.
The first step to making these beds yourself is to cut the plywood to the desired length. Measure the bottom of the bunk bed in half. This will give you a good idea of the length of the plywood that you will need to cut. Once you have measured, cut the plywood to the desired length with a saw.
Then, you need to put the plywood on top of the wood glue it to the bed frame. Make sure that it is completely covered with glue and that it is firmly adhered to the bed frame before you can put the finishing touches on the bed.
Now, you can use the dowels to support the bed. Cut dowels to match the size of the bottom of the bed frame. These dowels will provide some balance and support to the bed. Then, attach the bed frame to the dowels using clamps. Screw the frame to the bed frame with clamps.
The most important thing to do after making the bed is to place some pillows inside the frame and then to close it with the dowels. The final step is to attach the two sides of the bed frame together to ensure that the single bunk bed is completely enclosed.
All you need to do now is to put the wooden frame back over the plywood and then fix the frame to the sides with the dowels. Put some hinges to make the bed secure on the frame.
After putting all the parts together, you can now fill your little kids' bedroom with these single bunk beds as seen at http://choicemart.co.uk/furniture/bedroom/beds/childrens-beds/bunk-beds/single-bunk-bed/.
