4 Space-Saving Bunk Beds You'd Love to Sleep In

These pieces are ideal for small spaces and shared bedrooms


If you grew up with a sibling or if you're currently living in a shared space, then you are very well familiar with the trusty bunk bed. It's an ideal piece when you have a limited floor area yet still need to ensure comfort. Over the years, it has evolved from being a simple double-deck into something more creative as furniture makers and homeowners create their own versions—from ship-inspired pieces to beds that would remind you of London's red double-decker buses.

For those of you who are planning to furnish a shared bedroom or simply want to create something extraordinary for the home, here are four photos that will surely inspire you! Remember, while you can work on any of these ideas on your own, it's still best to consult with a carpenter or professional:

Storage piece

Your bunk bed can also be an ideal storage piece. The lower bunk can have slim secret drawers underneath for extra sheets while the ladder can have built-in cabinets for decor, books, and other belongings. If there's an unused niche by the top bunk, you can install a wall-mounted shelf for books, decor, and photos.

Minimalist option

Achieve a neat and streamlined space by choosing white elements all the way. If you have white walls, this will give an illusion that you be is one with the wall. Accessorize the space with pillows and sheets in earth tones.

Hotel-like beds

What makes hotel rooms cozy and inviting? We're including warm lighting and touches of wood in the list! Create a similar feel at home by adding mood lighting by your headboard. You can also install faux wood wallpaper to complete the look.

When it comes to designing the bed, your peg can be a bit rustic with a dark-colored ladder. Don't forget to add a solid-colored rug!

Transforming beds

If you live in a small studio and can use all the extra square meters that you can get, you can opt for foldable bunk beds. With this creative solution, you can move around freely and use the space for other functions. You can turn it into a living area, a dining space, or even a workspace.
