Step 1 – First, you have to clear a particular space of your room where you intended to set your platform bed. After all, you are not going to set your bed over other furniture. Moving these things and starting the process in a cleaned area will be easier for you.

Step 2 – Target a particular place on the wall where you will finish, then lay the headboard against that place.

Step 3 – To attach the side rail to the headboard, you must follow the manual instructions. This can be tricky, but the basic process involves using a screw or bolt mounted on a screwdriver or hex wrench.

Step 4 – Once you have completed mounting one of the sidebars. You will now become able to finish the rest. So, repeat the previous process and complete mounting the rest of the rails.

Step 5 – Position the footboard at the side rail closed end. Just as you have completed the headboard, follow the same process for the footboard.

Step 6 – If your layout contains one, connect the middle support bars. Its attachment process is similar to the side rails. This process can be completed by using different approaches in some ways. See the directions of the manufacturer, whether they have mentioned.

Step 7 – Place the slats in a perpendicular form with the rails and then secure the stands on the side rails in compliance with the supplier’s directions.
