Bunk beds are hard to beat when you’re trying to save space and increase functionality. While they’re particularly suitable for children’s bedrooms, the right design can also enhance guest rooms in contemporary mountain homes. When I incorporate bunks beds into room designs, I do so with both aesthetic appeal and practical needs in mind.
Custom bunk beds give this children’s room a fun, summer camp feel. In this room, I added several matching bunk beds in rustic blue and brown finishes to provide the perfect sleeping area for young cowboys and mountain rangers. A lot of play space is spared with under-bed storage and bunks instead of standard twin beds.
For a couple’s guest room, a double or king-sized bed is more suitable than a twin-sized one. In this room, I incorporated custom bunks that have larger-sized beds on the bottom and twin beds at the top to offer versatility for families. In addition, the retreat-like feel of bunk beds fits right in with the home’s mountain style.
We chose a light wood finish to maintain a spacious feeling in this room. Additionally, practical features, such as built-in shelves and under bed storage, give guests a designated space to keep their belongings. These beds also boast reading lamps for an extra boost of functionality.
Adding connected, built-in bunk beds in this room transformed the space into a functional retreat that can sleep up to six people. Colorful floral bedding adds a feminine touch, the look of the room could be changed significantly by switching out the bedding.
The scalloping on these bed frames adds style, but it also promotes the feeling that each bed is a private sanctuary. By using bunk beds, the room can comfortably accommodate twice as many visitors than if we used standard beds.
