Master bedroom renovation: DIY Kee Klamp bed
When she decided to remodel her bathroom in 2014, designer and owner of Atmoscaper Kitchen Design Robin Amorello went for a ‘refined industrial’ style. This style would also be mirrored in her following project: the redesign of her master bedroom.
Robin went for a bright yellow and grey colour scheme and a galvanised pipe bed seemed the perfect fit for her bedroom.
She put everything together using an Allen key.
List of fittings
Parts you'll need
Build your own Kee Klamp bed in 4 simple steps
It is quite simple to assemble a similar bed frame; here is how you can build yours:1. Put the headboard together
Use 6 pieces of tube and connect them using 3 x Single Socket Tees and 2 x 90° Elbows:
Use 6 long pieces of tube to build the bed frame.
- Use 2 Side Outlet Elbows (type 20 fittings) in the corners of the frame that sit opposite to the headboard
- Use one Three Socket Cross (type 35 fitting) to connect the 2 pipes that will form your mattress holder
- Connect the mattress holder to the rest of the frame using a Three Socket Cross (type 35 fitting) and 90° Side Outlet Tees (type 21 fitting).
You will also need to cut 6 small pieces of tube to use as bed legs and insert these into the relevant fittings.
You can use the length of the headboard tube to form 3 of the bed legs.
Use one Three Socket Cross and 2 x 90° Side Outlet Tees fittings to connect the headboard to the rest of the frame.
Use planks to finish the mattress holder.
4. Optional: Use flanges to the legs of your bed
And you are done!
