King size platform bed with storage and bookcase headboard – A typical bed takes up a lot of floor space. Most of us try to squeeze out some additional use of that space by sliding containers and flat objects under the bed, but those items can be difficult to recover when we need them. Also, the dust that accumulates in them only creates a mess. A storage bed provides clean, covered storage that is much easier to use. And best of all, it’s easy to build. The size of a storage bed is affected by something more than the size of the mattress.
Bookheads are not new, but you may not know that you can use shelves for real books to get the job done. If you have one that is as wide as or wider than your mattress, push it behind your bed. Anchor it firmly to the wall and fill all the shelves that are not covered by the bedding. If you have two taller shelves, stand one on each side of the bed instead of bedside tables. Bridge over the top with a painted board to match. The board will not only be an additional platform, which will complete the frame around the head of the king size platform bed with storage and bookcase headboard. Hang a curtain, a special image or a mirror on the wall in the middle to complete the look.
