ibt have you got your bed on an angle3

inclinedbedtherapy.com simple method of inclining a bed frame.This method of inclining a bed is robust and inside the existing frame so as not to alter the external appearance and will not damage the frame. The mattress and the IBT sleepers weight is distributed directly to the floor through ply wood / mdf wedge triangles, with cross members screwed and glued from the top to support the existing base. I like this idea because it preserves the look of this antique bed and has nothing attached to the frame that could reduce it's value.

Thank you Axelle Do for providing us with these phtographs and for sharing your low cost modification that I am sure will be adopted by many.

How To Make an Inclined Bed From A Door To Improve Your Sleep and Health
The simplest method of making a bed for inclined bed therapy
Auryn Tales   I could not sleep so i build my first inclined bed. i hope i will sleep now like a bear! Good Night

Auryn has provided these images showing the simplest method of inclining a bed. A door frame was removed and raised at the head end using books. Now what is your excuse for not trying IBT?

  

What is your excuse for not trying Inclined Bed Therapy?
Using either a plywood sheet, or removing a door from it's hinges and propping up one end with books, bricks or blocks of wood, place a mattress on top and your ready to sleep as nature intended us to.

 

When is a door not a door? When it's an inclined bed that improves your health and wellbeing

A simple timber framed inclined bed for inclined bed therapy.

A very sturdy bed frame, made to a five degree head up angle. The foot board is to retain the mattress and sit's below the level of the mattress.

You really don't need to spend much money to incline your bed.

I like this method of inclining a bed inside the existing frame. Superb job by Cindi

The first pic is cutting and assembling in driveway. It was a pain in the rump to get it fully assembled into bedroom. Had to take a board off to make the corner. Second pic is in place inside my bed frame. I used the slats from my bed because I forgot to buy wood for them when I bought the lumber. The incline frame fits perfectly within the original frame. Last pic is with everything on it. The head of the bed is about 4.5 ft high. We will revise that. There is still work to do on it, but out of time today for it!

Cindi Phoenix designed this amazing inclined bed frame to fit inside her existing beautiful carved mahogany bed, maintaining the head board and foot board in a vertical position. Well done Cindi

This is my preferred method of inclining an ornate / decorative bed.

It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. Look what Cindi has achieved with her inclined bed frame design that sits inside the existing frame

Assembly finished in room. Used original slats. Because it is a bigger bed, we used two boards in center for support and 4 x 4's for legs. There are 4 x 4's on all corners and down center and 2x4's for stiff legs on sides of beds.

Finished my new inclined bed frame today! We made it so that the whole inclined frame would fit inside the original bed frame as it is carved mahogany and I didn't want to alter it. Fits in beautifully!!!! I'll upload some pics of the project soon. One thing I didn't really think much about beforehand was the total height the bed would be after inclined. I am almost 6' tall and I have to use a step stool to get into bed! On my next day off, we will modify the bed height by cutting off 4-5 inches from the support legs on our frame. Forgot entire thing sits within the existing bed frame and I can therefore make my inclined frame any height I want to! I'll post another pic after the revision! It cost about $40.00 in lumber and screws and was about a 4 hour project because we were designing it as we went. Took a brief nap on it and it felt great! We made it 7".

Cindi Phoenix After one night of sleeping inclined, I am in LOVE with it! It just feels RIGHT! We will do the other bed next week in the same way.

It's amazing what you can do when you put your mind to it. This is a superb stable inclined bed frame made by Miz Di from Facebook. I think it's an excellent method that costs very little and far superior to many purchased standard bed frames.  So girls, rather than wait for your partner to get around to inclining your bed, follow this example or others in this category and do it yourself.
"Yes, I did this all myself with a drill, 4 x 4's, 3" screws, plywood, left over boxspring made out of wood and the bed and cat! This is for a Queen bed, I made the legs extra long to have storage under it. The legs are 18", 20", 22", and 24", longest being at the top of the bed, then I used plywood on top. Cindi Phoenix was my inspiration for this bed frame. She introduced me to Inclined Bed Therapy"
