A floor DIY house bed is a great transition bed from a crib to a big kid's bed. It is also incredibly beautiful. There are plenty of those beds on the market, but as much as they are beautiful, they also break the bank. I gathered together free DIY plans for the Montessori floor house bed in this post. I hope you will find an easy plan to follow and make it yourself. It's an amazingly rewarding project.
Also, I'd like to show you some inspiration for decorating this adorable bed.

This is the bed that I recently made for a client in twin size. I wrote a detailed tutorial with plans here. You can also watch it on YouTube. You can get printable plans for the twin-size floor bed here.

Toddler house bed from Jen Woodhouse

Jen made this cool DIY toddler house bed. It's not a Montessori style, it's a regular bed, which means it's not on the floor, but it still looks fantastic and she has free plans to download.
I like the design in that she uses metal brackets to secure it. This way bed becomes stronger and can be easily disassembled if needed. I'll make a mental note about that for the future in case I'll decide to make another one ;D

Amy from "Her tool belt" made a full-size house bed that is a bit elevated from the floor and has rails, but it's so easily modified to suit your needs. She also shares a detailed plan for making this bed on her blog.

Amber from Leggings 'N' Lattes made a crib-sized house bed since her daughter was out of the crib, but they didn't want to get a bigger mattress yet. I think it looks incredible!
She explains the process and shows you the exact cuts you need to make this bed.

If you'd instead buy than make it yourself, there are so many beautiful floor house beds.
The Montessori bed store has Montessori beds with a lifetime warranty on parts. And it looks fantastic.
I love this Pottery Barn kid's Camden house bed. It looks simply gorgeous! WestElm also has a house floor bed on sale, which comes in full size!
Check Overstock and their Frannibrook house bed frame for the more affordable option!
Even Amazon has a few. I'm not sure how they ship it but this gorgeous twin-size house bed, for example, has a 5-star review.
ETSY has various house floor beds in different sizes and shapes.
I love this adorable bed, which also comes in all sizes.

Decorating floor house bed
It's so much fun to decorate this bed! Let me show you some of my favorites.
I prefer a minimalist style so I chose to use white lace that falls through the whole bed. I found this lace on AliExpress and even though I didn't like it very much at first, it grew on me and now I love it!
I added handmade felt clouds on a string since the theme of the room is clouds.
It was a very easy project that could be done in an hour while watching TV. Just cut felt in the shape of a cloud, sew it, leaving a little hole and stuff with toy stuffing.
If you'd prefer to buy, there are plenty of options on Etsy.

I love it when felt garlands are used on this bed. It adds some sort of feeling of lightness when you see it.

If you ask me, the canopy is what really makes it for me! It adds so much flair and gives a child a feeling of security and being tucked in the bed.
As I mentioned before, I got mine from AliExpress, but there is so many gorgeous canopies on the market!
West Elm has a very affordable canopy in white and beautiful mustard color. It would be perfect for a twin-size floor house bed.
My absolute favorite one from Numero 74! It's made from 100% linen and looks divine!
And here is a more affordable but still gorgeous one from Amazon!
So many options to decorate!!!
