Sofa Bunk Beds IKEA – The main difference between a regular bunk and a futon bunk bed is the mattresses. Regular mattresses have an internal frame, which means they do not curl. Without that internal frame, a futon mattress sinks through the rails and must be supported by a grid or a set of bars. Although different brands and models of futon bunk beds have different mounting details, most follow the same general plan. The construction will be much easier if you have a partner to sustain the constant frame as you work.
Set the pieces for your futon bunk in your work area. Place all the nuts and bolts that come with the bed in a plastic container. Set the end pieces of the bunk bed frame in position, about where they will go to bed when it is finished. Install the lower mattress frame. Install it in place and make it with four or eight screws, depending on the form. Slide the bolts with the heads pointing outwards. Screw the corresponding nuts in about three-quarters of the way.
Install the upper mattress frame, using the same method as the lower frame. Tighten all the nuts on both frames by hand until you can no longer move the nuts. Tighten the nuts further by holding the nut in place with the key or locking pliers, then screw the nut into place with a screwdriver or a hexagonal wrench. Attach any railings that accompany the futon bunk bed. Bolt in place using the same basic technique you used to join the mattress frames.
