Re: 2BHK Wood Work with Space Saving Furniture

Hi @UmaB4u,

 

Are you planning on building all these custom space-saving furniture items yourself, or will you be purchasing them to install? If you build them yourself, you'll have to decide on the measurements and include them in your plan. If you are buying these units, you'll need to check with their suppliers about the size of the units and include those in your plans.

 

Most woodworking starts with a sketch on paper to establish some rough designs and sizing. I'd encourage you to pick up some graph paper and a ruler and begin putting your ideas down. Search Google for space-saving items and take your inspiration from there. You can also search our community to see what our members have included in their own builds. 

 

Once you have your idea on paper instead of in your head, you'll see how you can then place those items in your room. If you have questions you'd like to ask about the process, please feel free to let us know. You might even like to share the sketches of your ideas with us so we can provide feedback on them.

 

I look forward to hearing more about your project and assisting you with the details.

 

Mitchell

Re: 2BHK Wood Work with Space Saving Furniture

I'd suggest you break all these different ideas down and concentrate on one at a time @UmaB4u. For instance, let's start with a fold-out bed and work on that first.

 

You'll need to spend some time researching what's involved in constructing a Murphy bed. You should first find somewhere which can supply you with the mechanism to operate the bed. Pistons or torsion springs allow the bed to be easily lowered and raised.

 

The mattress is attached to the bed frame, and straps are used to hold it in position when the unit is folded away. The bedframe would be made from pine timber to ensure the weight is kept to a minimum. You'll also need to decide on the size of the mattress to be used. Once you have the mattress dimensions, you can start to plan a design around it. This will include the bed frame, recessed enclosure for it to fold into, and how you will attach the torsion springs to those.

 

Unless one of our helpful members has constructed one of these beds themselves and can provide you with details, I'd suggest you'll need to spend some time researching the answers. Googling How to make a murphy bed might be a good place to start.

 

Mitchell
