Hello girls, here are 21 pretty trendy cabin bed ideas that you can take inspiration from to design a beautiful cabin bed to furnish the room of the little ones in the house.

All parents have known the ordeal of having to enter into negotiations with their child so that they agree to go to bed. On the other hand, many parents have been asked by their children to have a wooden cabin built for them in the garden or the trees. If you recognize yourself in these two descriptions, this article is for you. Through it, I suggest you combine the useful with the pleasant and make your child’s bed a wooden hut to play with, but also to sleep. So when it’s time to go to sleep, you can tell your child to play in the cabin, doing this trick a powerful argument for gently leading them to sleep. The manufacture of such furniture is relatively complex for someone who is not used to working with wood. There are also ready-to-use models in commerce; I have gathered several suggestive images for you if you plan to make such an acquisition, but these remain relatively expensive for the use that will be made of them. The best is still to opt for recovery.

What you will need to make a cabin bed

Since we assume that you are starting without any particular experience in carpentry, it will be necessary to recover objects having as much as possible the final shape you will need during the assembly of the hut to eliminate the stages of preparation beforehand as the intermediate stages. The bulk of the building being the hut itself, you will need to form a cube, and you will need six handling pallets corresponding to the six sides of the cube to firmly join each of the pallets to the others to make the faces, provide 12 thick wooden cleats as ridges. These cleats will not only give the measure of the right angle but will serve as a support for the fastenings of each pallet to the others. Start by sawing off the pallet parts that serve as the base of the pallet to keep only the platform. The segments of the pallets without planks will have to be filled with planks recovered from other pallets to obtain a filled platform.

Then fix a cleat firmly at the level of the edge of this one before fixing another pallet on the face adjacent to the one where there are the first fixings to form a right angle. Secure the pallets to the cleat with thick screws. Be careful not to screw the pallets at the same level. Alternate the fixing points to prevent the screws from meeting in the cleat and thus weaken it. Repeat the operation until you get the cube’s faces and cover the cube with the last pallet to get the roof. You have the choice between giving a floor to the hut thus formed. In this case, you will need the sixth pallet or leave the ground as it is, in which case, only five pallets will suffice.

Once the operation is finished, see an opening wide enough to allow your child to get in and out, and set the hut on the ground for added stability. In addition to the central opening, saw a secondary opening as a window to give the cabin the appearance of a small house. Once the window is sawn, it is possible to install an actual window frame mounted on hinges to allow opening and closing. However, no glass tiles, since the hut is intended for a child, but rather plastic tiles. Of course, if your carpentry skills are well-honed, it is still possible to raise the cabin high on stilts.

Give life to the cabin.

At this point, all you have is a wooden cube with an opening to make it look more like a cabin than a doghouse; you will need to color the building. And to do this, nothing like calling on the principal concerned, your child, to help you in this task. Inviting him to paint his cabin himself will allow him to establish a solid emotional bond with it, learn the value of work, perfect his manual skills and sharpen his creativity. In addition, by accompanying him in work, it is the bond between you and your child that will be forged then. In addition to painting the outside of the cabin, invite him to decorate the inside; by decorating it, he learns to tidy up his intimate space without realizing it. When he comes out of his cabin in the morning, leaving it in disorder will not leave him indifferent, because he will have provided work to embellish his secret garden, he will then develop towards it a form of respect based on the effort that was necessary for him to bring his project to fruition. You are therefore not killing two birds in stone, but rather three by adding the educational dimension of such an initiative.
