Measure the Space

It is important to know the exact space for the bunkbed in your kids’ room. Measure the space well and use a piece of graph paper to plan the scaled elevation in similar floor plan.

The on-paper design will help you consider whether the bed will be too big, too small or in the right size. When you have found the right design, then go to the home improvement store to purchase all materials needed to build the bunk bed.
