How to Make Your Own Pallet Bed

The pallet bed is an economical solution that suits a range of decor styles, but before creating your own pallet bed it's essential to take several factors into consideration.

Prioritize quality wood when choosing materials for your pallet bed. Although reusing an old wooden pallet may seem wasteful, selecting high-grade pieces such as kiln-dried pine pallets from an established mill instead of locally grown timber that has been cut and shaped using saws and knives can ensure dry wood that won't leach chemicals or pesticides into your mattress and become a health risk.

Avoid chemicals as much as possible while also smoothing any rough edges of pallet wood with a power sander or sandpaper, to minimize splinters. It's wise to also apply wood friendly paint or polyurethane as an additional protective finish.

Not to be forgotten is that a pallet bed requires a mattress tailored specifically to each sleeper's unique ergonomic requirements, so it is wise to test various mattresses over a prolonged period before selecting one as your ideal mattress choice.

One other key consideration in creating your pallet bed is its size in relation to its room of usage. A bed that is too small will cause discomfort during sleep; on the other hand, larger beds provide ample space and an uplifting sleeping environment.
