Bunk beds have always been a popular choice for both parents and children, and for many great reasons. For kids, it’s mostly about the fun and excitement of sharing a bed with a sibling, and more importantly, getting the chance to sleep on the top bunk. For parents, on the other hand, the beauty of the bunk beds lies more in how wonderful they are as space savers. But how exactly do bunk beds save space? Read on to find out.
How Bunk Beds Save Space for a Shared Bedroom
When two or more kids need to share a bedroom, you need to provide one bed for each child. But what if the floor space is limited and there is no way you can fit in two twin beds and still have enough space for storage and moving around? Bunk beds are the solution!
Basically, these beds allow you to fit in two beds in the same floor space, simply by stacking them on top of each other. Here at Kids Furniture Solutions, we have bunk beds in all sizes and configurations. Twin over twin bunk beds is perfect for two children sharing a bedroom. Twin over full bunk beds can accommodate three occupants. And if you opt for the trundle pullout on these beds, you can increase the bed space even further!
How Bunk Beds Save Space for Storage
It’s not a common practice but bunk beds can be used to create much needed storage space in the bedroom. If there is only one occupant in the room, they can stay on the bottom bunk and use the top bunk as a place to keep stuff that they don’t use on a daily basis. Boxes of off-season clothing, extra beddings, even holiday decorations – these can all go on the top bunk. It’s really a great solution for small homes that do not have an attic.
Alternatively, you can sleep on the top bunk and use the bottom area for storage. In this case, it would make much more sense to use something like this low loft twin bed that does not have a bottom bunk but comes with a matching storage chest that fits perfectly under the bed. If you prefer to have a desk underneath where you can store your computer, books and similar supplies, then this wooden loft bed would be a great solution.
If the bunk beds are used the traditional way with one person sleeping on the top bunk and another on the bottom bunk, it can still work as a great storage solution. The KFS bunk beds do come with a set of large drawers under the bottom bunk that can be used to store just about anything, from beddings to toys and everything in between.
How Bunk Beds Save Space for Guestrooms
In the guest bedroom, bunk beds are also a popular choice. You never know how many guests you will have at a given time, and a bunk bed helps you to be more prepared. If there is only one guest, then they can use the bottom bunk. If there are two, not a problem either because there is an upper bunk as well. Of course, if you expect to be accommodating multiple overnight visitors frequently, the narrow bunk beds won’t suffice. It’s a good thing that we have a few full over full bunk beds that you can avail. This is equivalent to having two full-sized beds, which can comfortably accommodate four people. Again, with a trundle pullout, you can add even more sleeping space for your guestroom.
