In an attempt to optimize floor space, an enterprising Redditor with user name ‘Virian’ has constructed a uniquely functional, yet playful hanging loft bed for his son.
This innovative DIY bed design is not only incredibly space-saving, but is a fun single bunk bed option for kids.
Corner Brackets provide the extra support needed to make the structure strong and unyielding. Stained 1x10s, attached to the outer edges of the bed using screws and finishing nails, create a kind of raised casing required to keep the mattress in place. A ladder, made with 1×4 posts and 1” dowels (for the steps), is installed at one end of the bed, thus allowing access to the floating lofted bed. Caulking seals the gaps between the joints, while the bottom of the bed is coated with white paint to give the whole thing a clean and polished finish. Although the suspended loft bed is a cleverly engineered and executed DIY project, we do have a few doubts regarding its design. Regardless, this ingeniously-crafted hanging loft bed is an excellent space-optimization tool for college dorm rooms, and for anyone crunched for space.

According to the University of Kentucky, the tulip poplar is the tallest North American hardwood tree.
While the wooden framework of the bed is secured to the wall by means of lag bolts, it derives additional support from a sturdy chain hooked onto one of its corners. 2×6 pine studs form the basic rectangular frame, to which 2x4s are affixed with the help of joist hangers.


The platform is painted in the color of the adjacent walls, and the chain is finally fastened to the hook protruding from the bed frame.
Because of the absence of any footboard, changing sheets and cleaning the mattress will indeed be an excruciating task. With no weak particleboard like Ikea beds, the solid tulipwood is an environmentally friendly American hardwood manufactured in the states.
Poplar is found in many furniture projects, toys and wood turnings because it is inexpensive, fairly workable and takes nails, screws and glue well. It is named for the distinctive green and orange tulip-shaped flowers that grow upright, high in the tree, in May and June. It is commonly the wood stock of choice when building woodworking projects that will be painted. Unlike normal beds it is much closer to the ground and can be as low as 8 inches from the floor.
It is then wall-mounted using five lag bolts that are screwed firmly to the frame of the house.
An 800 lbs-rated proof coil chain, suspended via an eye-bolt drilled into the ceiling joist and then clamped to one end of the wood skeleton, keeps the bed afloat.
Poplar is also used quite often for more industrial purposes, such as the core of finer plywoods or for crates and pallets. The flowers produce samaras, cone-shaped spirals of seeds, in fall, and the seeds themselves are extremely sharp. It is relatively resistant to decay, and when sanded, primed and painted thoroughly, should hold up well to normal wear and tear for many interior projects.


Some buyers purchase the bed frames together with Tatami mats to be the base while most mattress platform have manifold slats for a use without a box spring. We believe a slightly longer side railing will ensure greater safety, especially for younger children. The heartwood is a yellowish brown to olive green sometimes streaked with dark green, purple, black, blue or red. The Tatami mats are straw mats customarily used in maintaining people and objects alienated from the floor and to be used as a base for the Japanese platform bed frame by the people who undergo back pain and choose a firmer support for the mattress.The sizes of a bed frame are available in Full, Cal King, Queen, and Standard King.
