The twin wall bed is space-saving solution for small rooms and rooms that have to be double duty, such as a home office or playroom. This type of bed is often removed in a hole cut into the wall, but it can also stop in a cabinet. Using a cabinet reduces the amount of demolition work required for the job, while eliminating the risk of cutting through electrical wiring or piping HVAC hidden within the wall. Mounting bookshelves to the wall on either side of the bed cabinet give the cabinet a built-in look.
Determine the best position in the room for your twin wall bed; be sure not to use a wall with windows. Ideally, the cabinet should center on as many wall lines as possible and each side should circle around a stud. Build a wall bedside box for the mattress if the wall bed kit contains this. And then measure the length and width of the mattress box, then add 1-1 / 4 inches to each measurement. Cut two pieces of one-of-12-inch timber for the length of the mattress box and two pieces of one-of-12 timber for the width of the mattress box. Glue four 1-by-12-inch pieces in the corners to form an open rectangle, then attach with three 2-inch wood screws in each corner.
Keep the cabinet structure in place against the wall in the desired location, and then easily track the contours on the wall and the floor with a pencil. Then cut out the baseboard that is within an area of the cabinet. And then mark the location of the studs in the wall, using a control detector to locate each bolt. Hold the cabinet in place again and attach to the wall with 3-inch wood screws, divided 6 inches apart, driven through cabinet sides and in the rules; Use the marks on the wall to find the rules. Insert screws through the bottom of the cabinet in the floor beams to anchor the cabinet to the floor. Use 4-inch screws, if desired, to increase stability. Hold the bed window up inside the cabinet and fasten using the twin wall bed mounting hardware.
