IKEA queen bed frame with storage – Designing queen bed so you have the rest you deserve. Three separate frame sections make moving the bed easier. The design of the platform also allows for storage below. The construction is quite simple, but it can take a couple of hours to complete. Cut two boards 2 by 10 inches to 70 inches long. A standard double bed is 80 inches long, but subtracts 10 inches from the total to allow the thickness of the outside frame, which is 1 1/2 inches. This extra space allows the lower frame to be felt slightly back from the top frame, providing space for the fingers when approaching the bed.
For example, 80 inches and 10 inches less results in tables that is 70 inches long. These two joints form the back of the lower frame when viewed from the side of the bed as if accessing storage. Divide the length of the lower platform into the number of storage compartments desired. Five equal spaces that measure 14 inches wide is one of the alternatives. Since these could prove narrow, you can also create four in 17 1/2 inches wide or make irregular sized compartments, well, for example, two 24 inches wide and two 11 inches wide.
Line of the two longitudinal joints aligns with the aligned ends. Measure the length of the tables. Make a straight line to mark where you want to attach a board to form the storage compartments. Count the number of marks in a table and duplicate it to provide enough tables for both sides of the bottom of the frame. Add four additional plates to create the ends of the lower frame.
