Accessories may be added to our beds at any time. They may be added either during or after initial assembly. We recommend you order your accessories at the same time you order your bed since there are no additional Shipping Charges for accessory items when ordered and shipped with a bed. If an accessory item is ordered as a separate item (without a bed on the order), please contact us first to get the shipping charge for that item. You may pay the shipping charge below.
Our beds and accessories are unfinished, sanded and ready for paint or stain, or may be left unfinished.
If you need to order multiple items you may change the quantity in the shopping cart.
The above photo shows the most common accessories ordered for Youth, Teen and College Student beds. Click photo to enlarge.
The Stairs Steps & Shelves gives you lots of extra storage space and easy to climb stairs. The unit may be placed anywhere on the bed. The steps are 19" wide and are available with Four (4) or Five (5) Steps & Shelves. The unit is all solid wood and the steps are clear & knot free solid pine.
With 19" wide steps it makes it much easier for children and adults walking up as compared to the 11" units sold by other manufacturers.
The unit may be installed either on the short end of the bed or on the long side. Please contact us if you need a custom size built.

The Storage Drawers are 20" wide x 7" high x 36" long giving you plenty of under bed storage space. They come in groups of (3) three. They slide on the floor and have either sliders for hard floor & tight weave carpets or wheels for use on thicker carpets. The storage drawers are great for kids storing their toys, lego blocks and just about anything underneath the bed. The above photo shown the storage drawers underneath the Captain's Bed. They can also be used underneath the Bunk Bed, High-Rise Mid-Height Low Loft Bed and Low Platform Beds.
The Mattress Foundation Bed Slats are a set of 1-1/2" thick bed slats that will fill the mattress area with a 3" gap between the slats. All beds automatically include this option in the base price. Please note, you do not need to supply a box spring, bunkie board or plywood with our beds, you can place the mattress directly on top of our bed slats.
We have a Solid Platform available that attaches to the top of the bed slats. This may be needed if you have a foam mattress, thin mattress, older uncomfortable mattress, futon mattress, air mattress, mattress that requires a solid base or you just want a solid platform to get a firmer mattress feel. It has multiple pieces of 1/8" MDF that covers the entire mattress area. It is attached to the top of the Mattress Foundation Bed Slats which are included with the bed. This may be needed if your mattress manufacturer requires you to have a box spring, bunkie board or a totally flat solid platform surface to keep the mattress warranty active. This may also be used if you don't want to see the bottom of the upper mattress when sitting or sleeping underneath or if you want a solid separator between the top and bottom mattresses.
The L-Shaped Bed is a combination of two separate beds with a Connector between them joining the two beds together. This eliminates the center post giving you a larger open area underneath. The two individual beds may be a combination of loft or bunk beds.
To make a L-Shaped bed you need to select the Connector for the first bed only. The second bed ordered does not need the connector. The first bed in the shopping cart will be considered Bed #1 and the second bed will be Bed #2. If you have any custom specifications you can enter them during checkout.
L-Shaped Beds are perfect for kids sharing a small bedroom where two separate beds will not work out. You can also use one section as a bed and the other for a reading or play area. For a Play Area we will need to add a plywood platform to the top of the bed slats to form a solid top surface. You can then cover it with carpeting or foam mats to make it a nice soft play area.
This diagram shows the Left Side L-Shaped Bed. It can be made in any size and the beds can be different sizes. For example, Bed #1 could be a Queen Loft or Bunk Bed for sleeping and Bed #2 a twin for sleeping, a play area or reading area.
How much space will it take up in the room? Using the diagram you can calculate how much space you will need depending on the size beds you are ordering.
Bed Outside Dimensions: Width: Twin 44" Full 59" Queen 65" Length: Regular 79" XL 84" XXL 88".
You may use our Bunk Bed Kit to convert a loft bed into a bunk bed. The kit comes with (2) rails, the Mattress Foundations (bed slats) and hardware.
The loft conversion kit allows you to convert one of our existing beds with a new set of legs and rungs. For example, you can convert a bunk bed into two loft beds or convert a high rise to a tall loft bed.
For your existing bunk bed you will remove the bottom bunk (rails and slats) and install them on the legs we provide. You will end up converting one bunk bed into two loft beds.
For your existing high rise bed, this will allow you to convert it into a tall loft bed. This is perfect for young children initially needing a lower loft and moving up to a taller loft as they get older.
Loft Conversion Kits Include:
(4) 39" Legs (4) Rungs Hardware Kit
(4) 72" Legs (8) Rungs (2) Safety Rails Hardware Kit
(4) 84" Legs (10) Rungs (2) Safety Rails Hardware Kit
(4) 96" Legs (12) Rungs (2) Safety Rails Hardware Kit
Shipping cost is not included in the price. Before ordering please contact us to confirm the specifications and shipping cost.
For all of our standard beds, Corner and Rung Braces are not required. However if you have customized it to make it taller or longer or if you want additional bracing then Corner and/or Rung Braces may be added. Also some colleges require all beds to have Corner & Rung Braces. The Corner Braces go on the long sides, Rung Braces go on the rungs at the headboard & footboard ends.
For college students needing a Lockable Storage Box to store their valuables or if you need additional storage on your bed or desk we have a Lockable Storage Box available. It can be placed on top of the desk or installed in-between the legs of the bed. You can also turn it sideways and use it for storing game system cartridges. It is made from knot-free solid pine, 8" x 8" and available in twin, full and queen sizes. We can also make it to a custom size if needed. Please contact us if you need a custom size built. You need to provide your own lock. The last photo shows the Storage Box installed in-between the legs. It is attached to the legs with screws from the inside of the box.
Our Clothes Rack is used in rooms that don't have a closet for hanging clothes or for college students needing more clothes hanging space. It is 3' long for the twin size and 4' long for the full and queen size beds. It may be mounted anywhere underneath the bed to a bed slat.
The Towel Bar is very popular with college students as dorm rooms and apartments typically don't have a place to hang wet towels in the room and you definitely don't want to leave your towels in a shared bathroom. The towel bar is 3' long and comes unassembled and may be attached anywhere on the bed.
