Platform Bed Plans

Platform beds are great for lots of reasons. Using free platform bed plans makes it even better, as it saves money and allows customization to work with your particular style and space.

A platform bed has a simple, streamlined look, essential in modern decorating, but also important for small rooms, where clutter and fussiness are out of the question.




Free platform bed plans allow a DIY craftsman to customize his bed design to fit the room. Punch it up or play it down. The wood, stain and finish will help determine whether it is Classic, Modern or Kitsch. Add simple trims and moldings to dress it up. Finish in sleek lacquer or satin black to tone it down. The choices are all yours when you build it yourself.
