Looking to optimize bedroom space? Consider bunk beds. Beyond just having a place in kids’ rooms, they’re a brilliant and stylish solution for accommodating extra house guests. Here, eight of our favorite design-forward stacked sleepers.
Marine inspiration comes to life in this Balboa Island bedroom. From the sailboat wallpaper and striped area rug to the rope ceiling lamp and sea creature accent pillows, there’s no shortage of coastal decor.
In designer Jenni Kayne’s home, reclaimed wood, a neutral color palette, and soft striped linens make these built-in bunks feel seriously sophisticated.
Creative + Kid-Friendly
Creating a space that works for playtime and bedtime isn’t easy, but this kids’ room manages to do just that through the use of adorable accents—like a Melissa & Doug Hi-Rise Dollhouse and Ferm Living Little Mr. Teddy.
This fairytale bedroom is fit for a princess. A plush tufted headboard and footboard add a regal feel—particularly when paired with graphic wallpaper. And a pink window seat—flooded with natural light—is the perfect place to cozy up with a storybook.
This compact bedroom feels open and bright thanks to some clever design tricks. A pair of custom bunk beds, positioned in the corner, create more space in the center of the room. Printed pillows, a hand-woven area rug, and a striped ottoman infuse personality while keeping the space relaxed and inviting.
Lofted ceilings and white built-in bunk beds give this bedroom an airy feel. Curtains make for more private sleeping quarters—ideal for teens and adult guests. Meanwhile, a staircase (in lieu of a ladder) is a sophisticated—not to mention safer—way to reach the top bunk.
Pops of burnt orange and bold stripes gives this kids’ room a retro feel. And how clever are these clear trunks? Such a smart way to encourage little ones to tidy up.
Practicality doesn’t have to come at the cost of style—case and point this bunk room. A cool color palette and coastal decor (think: a rope lighting fixture, turquoise accent pillows, and a jute rug) transform this space into a seaside retreat fit for kids and adults alike.
