Dab hand at DIY? Want something more than just a boring ‘normal’ bed? Well we might have just the thing for you. Over on Imigur, user elohwhydee posted instructions on how to make a ‘floating bed’ complete with step by step photographs. And it’s AMAZING.
This is how the finished product looks. A seeming support-less bed floating 20 inches off the bedroom floor.
First, the person built a basic bed frame, screwed directly into the wall and supported by a hidden strut.
This wooden strut supports the entire bed, so is securely attached to the frame using upside down joist hangers.
The strut is placed where most downwards pressure occurs.
The support strut is barely visible, even without the bed being covered.
The frame is covered with a simple sheet of plywood.
Et voila! A floating bed.
Fancy giving it a go?
