Floor DIY house bed is an incredible transition bed from a crib to a big kid 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 on how to decorate this adorable bed.

I made my full-size bed using Design Confidential plans. She has great, very easy-to-follow directions and overall it wasn't too difficult. I wrote about the process, how to make it more efficient and what I added to the plans here.
Besides full-size plans, you can also find toddler size bed there.

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 amazing and she has free plans to download.
I like the design that she uses the 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
HOUSE FRAME BED

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 of how to make 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 amazing!
She explains the process and shows you the exact cuts you need to make this bed.

This bed looks great. They offer a detailed plan on how to build it yourself. They have great variations and different sizes so it's definitely worth looking at if you decide to make it yourself.
IF YOU'D RATHER BUY
If you'd rather buy than make it yourself, there are so many beautiful floor house beds.
For the more affordable option, check Overstock and their Frannibrook house bed frame!
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 a wide variety of house floor beds, in different sizes and shapes.
I absolutely love this adorable bed, which also comes in all sizes.
Here are a few more beds that you can purchase if you don't have time to make your own!
DECORATING FLOOR DIY 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.

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!!!
