Storage is an important factor in every room of your house, but especially in a children’s bedroom. Our team at Monk’s crafted a custom built-in trundle bed surrounded by floor to ceiling shelving.  Working with the homeowners’ vision, and an existing mattress and bed frame, our team was able to build a piece of furniture sure to make this child’s bedroom a fun and organized space.

Built-In Trundle Bed

The owners of this Chatham, NJ home worked with our team to create the design for this custom built-in. Before any building could take place the area was carefully measured and marked out to determine the exact dimensions of the new custom built in bed.

The homeowners also already had a headboard and mattress which our team would incorporate into the design.  The homeowners wanted drawers, not cabinets, and of course our team at Monk’s happily complied with the request.

This custom bed was crafted out of solid poplar and birch plywood. Our skilled carpenters built the bed frame directly onto the floor.  Carpet installers were brought in to carpet the room, ensuring a smooth connected line between the bed and the floor.  The carpenters installed carpet under the bed where the trundle bed would rest to make sure the floor was completely smooth and that pulling the extra bed out would never be a hassle.

The initial design for this custom built in did not include a trundle bed, but instead extra storage drawers underneath the bed. During the project the homeowners decided that they wanted a trundle bed instead. Our team was able to accommodate the request and built a trundle bed.

Once the custom built in trundle bed was complete it was painted. In fact, our team at Monk’s gave the entire bedroom a new paint job.
