If you're planning to replace bedroom carpeting with wood flooring, you need to find a way to protect the new floor from damage caused by the bed's casters. Remove the casters and put your bed up on bed frame risers you make yourself. An added benefit is the extra under-bed space you'll gain.
Things You'll Need
- 6-by-6 soft lumber
- 2 inch drill bit
- Wood stain
- Protective felt pads
Cut four 5-inch lengths from 6-by-6-inch piece of lumber. If your bed has six legs, cut six 5-inch lengths.
Using a 2 inch diameter boring drill bit that will leave a flat bottom to the drilled hole, drill a vertical hole 2 inches deep into one end of each block.
Round off sharp corners with sandpaper.
Stain the blocks to match the floor color. Allow to dry completely before using.
Attach a felt pad to the bottom of each block.
Remove the casters, and place each leg of the bed frame into the hole bored in each block.
