Our house has a niche of approximately 197.0 by 230.0 cm. A standard bed with drawers just doesn't fit there, because the bed is usually 200 cm long and the drawers are usually on the side. That's why we decided to make some ourselves. The idea was simple: hang crossbeams between the walls, and then place a slatted base on top. To finish everything off, we made an elevation with some planks.

Floating bed made of Finnish spruce

We still had some beams lying around, we also ordered a few beams and planks from OPMAATZAGEN.nl. We painted the visible shelves white, in the same shade as the walls. We have a hollow wall on the left, so we placed some support beams against the wall. On the right we attached the beams to the wall with cleats.

The 200.0 cm wide beams turned out to sag a bit, so we improvised some legs in the middle.

We then placed slatted bases on the beams and then the mattress on top of that.
