99 Pallet Bed DIY Plans
51) Modern Pallet Bed
This is a pallet bed design that looks very chic. The large, oversized bed has been elevated from the floor using a single layer of pallet frames. The large frames were simply laid out on the floor side by side and the bed laid out.
A small headboard was also constructed out of the same wood pallets. This is a design with a lot of potentials. You can make the pallet bed frame higher but make sure to use strong wood pallets and reinforce these with braces to be able to handle this large sized bed.
The pallet bed frame is very comfortable as you can see. The bed has extra-large pillows with oversized blankets and comforters. The bed is smaller than the pallet bed frame which gives you a small area where you can sit and read.
Improving this design is easy. You can elevate the bed with more pallet wood or you can build pallet furniture like stools, tables, and chairs if you have more wooden pallets to use.
52) Pallet Bed with Natural Hues
This pallet bed design is a nature-inspired pallet frame paradise. This has an elevated area where your mattress is placed. This is not your usual pallet bed frame design because this is like a large furniture installation that occupies a large section of your room.
The bed frame, headboard, and small side table were entirely made from wooden pallets. The mattress is small and thin but has become quite comfortable because of the elevated wood frame. The headboard functions as a plant holder too.
You can also use this section to hold books, a lamp, and some picture frames if indoor plants are not your thing.
How to make this a total nature-inspired pallet room? You may add shelves instead of just ledges where potted plants can sit. You can elevate the bed by adding more pallet boards as well.
53) Scandinavian Vibe Bedroom
Why are we so in love with Scandinavian designs? Most designers from this region use neutral colors on their furniture designs as well as their accessories. It is also because most Scandinavian designs use wood pallets to make different furniture and accent pieces.
In this Scandinavian-inspired bedroom, the bed is the focal point. The thin, single-sized mattress sits on a wooden pallet bed frame with casters for legs. The bed has a luxurious design with a gray, white and black color scheme.
The bed has become more comfortable, inviting and stylish with an elevated pallet wood frame. A pallet wood stool stands near the bed and this accent the overall Scandinavian look as well.
Creating the same cool look is possible in just a few hours. You can improve this design by elevating the frame and by adding a pallet wood headboard. You can paint it according to the color scheme or just leave the wood bearing its natural color.
54) Suspended Pallet Bed Frame
The hanging pallet bed has made this room warmer and a lot interesting. As you can see, this is a very large, cathedral-like bedroom that needs a little warmth and life. The bed is suspended in a pallet frame. This queen size bed is large and strong but it is suspended using strong rope strung on each corner of the frame bed.
This is classy and chic but at the same time very intricate to make. If you wish to use this design, make sure to test the strength of your wooden pallets first. It should hold the weight of the bed and your weight as well.
You must use the best and the strongest rope. Consider the strength of the beam that you will be hanging your bed from. Again, this should hold the weight of an occupied bed.
55) Double Deck Bed Frame Made from Wooden Pallets
This is a very interesting and fun design. This is a double deck bed design that lets your kids sleep and play inside cabin-like beds. The sleeping area is comfortable with matching linens, pillow covers and sheer curtain covers for some privacy.
The bunk bed frame here is more than just a pallet bed frame. It also doubles as a bookshelf or simply shelves where kids can place their toys.
The entire structure sits on one corner of the room and is from the ceiling to the floor. Great care has been used to design this amazing kid sleeping and playing area but no doubt that this can be built even by someone with basic woodworking experience.
And because this is a kids’ bedroom furniture, always check for the strength of each and every pallet. Consider safe ladders and side rails for the top bunk. Kids can play and hurt themselves on the upper bunk so no roughhousing in this pallet bunk bed!
56) Minimal, Elegant and Simple Pallet Bed

60) Pallet Bed Frame 2
This plan shows you how a basic pallet bed is made. Take note that this is not a pallet bed frame ONLY but a plan to make an actual pallet bed. The bed has been made from several pallet wood frames with each frame connected with strong nails or bolts.
The frame is elevated from the ground with installed legs on each corner of the frame. Because of this design, the bed frame is not just sturdy but it elevates the mattress a foot and several inches off the floor; a height that is very comfortable. You can further improve this design by adding more pallet wood frames to increase the height of the bed frame.
There’s no bed board in this design and this is an upgrade that you can consider. Aside from a bed board, you may add wooden pallet furniture pieces in this room as well.
