Recently my mom asked me to help with the design of a bunk room for her grandchildren. It has been such a fun project. It seems all children’s eyes light up when they see bunk beds. It is like sleeping in a boat, spaceship, or secret fort. Adventure and fun are sure to happen with your bed is a bunk…


Bunks are great for a lot of different reasons. The obvious being – space. You can definitely have everyone home for the holidays if you put all the kids together in one room. Makes sleeping a lot nicer for the adults as well when your child is not snoozing in the bathtub or closet next to you.

Since bunks are great space savers they are great for so many different places… a summer home, log cabin, grandparents or when you have 5 children under one roof.

I was one of those lucky kids who had a bunk bed. I shared it with my younger brother. I was a bit of a scaredy cat and took the bottom. It was perfect for me, cozy and safe.


The bunks above would be perfect for a mountain home. I love the rustic wood material and ladder placement. The beautiful detailing on the railing makes me think of a Swiss chalet.


The two sets of bunks above and below would be great for a summer beach house. Bring all the kids and stay for the weekend.

Whether it is bunking up with camp buddies in the summer or cousins on a holiday or sharing it with a sibling in a room, these beds are fun and quite practical.
