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!

  • She was eager to get back to playing golf so we ran out to get a couple drives in before those dark clouds made their way in🏌️‍♀️ #5yearsold #juniorgolf
  • We sure are missing our sunsets at the beach house right about now! I just pulled these pictures off my camera of the girls and they were so happy running off their energy to this beautiful scene ☀️Now it’s back to hitting golf balls at sunset until we move! You can see these little ladies working it in my stories (a full day of the #usopen will do that to ya!) 🏌️‍♀️ #beachsunsets #mygirls
  • Happy Father’s Day to all the amazing dads out there! I’m so lucky to do parenthood with this guy. He’s patient, loving, so so funny and fills in all my weaknesses 💙  Everybody he meets loves him too (to the point that I get sighs when I show up to the kids’ pediatrician without him 😆.) I think it’s safe to say our crew hit the daddy jackpot (wether they know it now or not, they will!) ✨ He really is the best! ✨Also, only 1 of 4 kids pictured because, well #4kids 😜 #happyfathersday
  • Today was a travel day for us 🚗 It was time to say good-bye to this trip and hello to the rest of summer break ☀️ The car may have been loaded with a weeks’ worth of stuff jumbled up for our crew but I still love to keep my stuff together (and separate 🤣!) I have loved how multi-functional this Day Trip bag from @loganandlenora has been for this trip and I’m so happy it arrived in time to use! From a crossbody bag to a hand bag AND it slides right on your luggage too 👏🏼 Def my new fav travel companion! #ad #summervacay
  • Last night at the house called for ice cream on the beach for sunset 🌅 Swipe to see these crazy sugar high ladies (& Lo’s sassy self)🍦We had the best week and I hate to see it end but so thankful for the time we had! Hoping our next big event is moving into our house...if it’ll ever get complete 😬 #summervacay #sunset
  • She’s turned into quite the little grommet this trip 🌊 We couldn’t keep her out of the waves so we grabbed her a board more her size (and a life vest for my ease of mind) and we let her fly! #grom #grommet
