Chris Heider, the man in the video came up with a brilliant alternative to buying a platform bed for his daughter, opting to build the bed frame out of kitchen cabinets from IKEA instead. This is a perfect solution for anyone with limited closet or attic space.If you live in a rented apartment and are worried about drilling holes in the walls, think hard about building this bed.
For just $480 and 6 hours of his time, Chris Heider made a platform bed with a lot of storage, stairs, and a crawl space underneath, using kitchen cabinets from IKEA, some wood, and a few decorative accessories.
The video below shows you how to turn seven standard kitchen cabinets from IKEA into a platform bed with storage underneath.

Nora of Oh Yes really outdid herself with a hacked DIY platform bed that effectively creates an entirely new level in her room while also adding storage space below. Love all the cabinets and drawers along the side to make more storage available.
