How To Make A Montessori Floor Bed


 

Montessori Floor Beds have grown in desire for parents transitioning their little ones out of cribs and some parents even use them after transitioning baby from bed sharing. Whatever your reason may be I am here to show you just how easy it is to make your own Montessori Floor Bed by essentially tweaking a common trundle bed!

What is A Montessori Floor Bed?

If you’re new to the idea of the Montessori Floor Bed I highly suggest starting HERE with my Floor Beds 101 as this will fill you in on why I am so passionate about the idea of them!

Simple Floor Bed or Unique House Bed – It’s your call!

As I mention in the post above you can go as little as simply putting a mattress on the floor or as grand as creating a DIY House Frame Floor Bed like below but there is always a middle ground and that is this next concept!

We created our first ever floor bed by simply buying a trundle bed and taking the wheels off of it! Yes, that was it!! We bought the Kendall Trundle from Pottery Barn Kids and it has held up incredibly well for us!

    1. Buy a trundle bed: We used the Kendall Trundle from PBK but here are few more options that I liked –
    1. Once purchased – take the wheels off (you can add floor protectors to the bottom if its going to be placed on wood floors like our first one was)
    2. Buy a trundle mattress – NOW listen, if you are only using this as a floor bed then any twin mattress will essentially work (since it doesn’t need to fit under a bed like a typical trundle would) but I still liked having a trundle mattress because it kept it low to the ground. My two favorite mattresses for this are:

*Optional – I added a bed rail on my first ever go around but quickly realized that wasn’t necessary BUT if you want to try I used this one from Ikea*

Searching for a Montessori Floor Bed can be hard as they aren’t quite mainstream yet (but let’s help make that happen!) SO I hope this helps create the desirable Montessori inspired bedroom for your little one! And yes, It’s really this easy!

  • Florida can’t seem to make up it’s mind with our weather and we keep getting little cold fronts down here! BUT, thankfully @rei has me covered with this lightweight - Trailsmith Anorak keeping me warm and providing me all the pockets 👏🏼 I’m sharing a few of my favorite spring finds from REI #ontheblog now! You know where to find the link ✨ #ad #rei #springfashionfinds
  • I just had to share these adorable captures from last night ✨ This really was such a sweet show and the cast was so nice too! Highly recommend it when it comes to your area! Thank you again @atthecapitol for having us 💕 #americangirllive
  • We really are stretching our girls’ trips these days but how could we say no to a night being hosted at @atthecapitol seeing the American Girl Live show?! #amiright 🤷🏻‍♀️🎉 We had such a blast and I shared a bunch of our night over on their insta so make sure to check it out! ✨ Double tap if you’re little one loves American Girl! If so, you have to see this show when it comes to your town! 💕#americangirl #americangirllive #aglive #americangirltour #capitoltheatre #atthecap #captakeover
  • These boys are still taking 2 naps a day and I’m not sure I ever want to give up these post nap mid-morning smiles ✨ Do I have to? 🤣 When did your little ones transition to 1 nap? #morningnap #twins
  • This photo perfectly sums up this afternoon- just a mess 🤣 1 dressed up mama, 1 kid missing (she’s back there somewhere), 1 kid screaming, 1 kid fake smiling and 1 tired teething toddler 🤦🏻‍♀️ BUT I had the absolute pleasure of meeting with another local news station today (with @aubreyonair who was SO amazing!) for another spotlight and let’s just say this is as real as it’s going to get when it comes to this crazy crew. I can’t wait to share it with you all! Stay tuned ✨ #mamastired #localnews
  • As we wait for our home to be completed (I can taste it it’s so near!) I think back to our last master suite and the one thing I’m missing most is our own bed. There is nothing like climbing into a cloud after a longggg day chasing all the tiny humans and we got that with our @tempurpedic mattress 😴 For the last 8 years that bed has been the place I find comfort in every night and I am so excited to have upgraded our old Tempurpedic mattress to the new TEMPUR-LuxeAdapt for the new house! I’m counting down the sleeps until we get to have our Tempur-Pedic back! Even better with their all new technology and pressure reliving power right were we need it to help rejuvenate us for another full day of parenting 👏🏼 #AD #luxeadapt #tempurpedic
