It looks like a simple chest or a bench with storage, but it’s definitely not your ordinary furniture! This is a space-saving DIY bed project that you would most likely want to consider.

Looking for a space-saving bed design? This bed in a box is suitable for those who need an extra bed to sleep on, but won’t actually be using regularly.

Bed in a Box

For example, you can make this bed and use it to accommodate overnight  guests in your house. You can set this up in your living area, mini library, or whatever room you have that can fit this bed. When your visitors have left, you can then ‘hide’ the bed in its beautiful box again and set it aside.

This particular bed in a box was made with custom locks and hinges to fit the dimensions and details of the DIY-er’s design.

Now the challenge is for you to try to do it yourself.  It surely does require a lot of planning and meticulous attention to details, but imagine the satisfaction when you’ve successfully built your very own bed in a box!
