Bunk beds are the perfect solution to shared bedroom spaces. They save space, the kids love them, and they happen to be really cute. And what you might not realize is that bunk beds for kids actually come in a wide variety of styles and sizes, so you can get the perfect fit no matter what.
Twin Over Twin Bunk Beds: This is the most common bunk bed size, which means the top and bottom bunk are both a twin bed size. This is great for younger ages, as well as sleepovers with friends.
Twin Over Full Bunk Bed: This means the top bunk is a twin-size bed, while the bottom bunk is a full size. This can be great for siblings who are further apart in age, giving the older sibling more space to spread out with the full size.
Bunk Bed with Trundle: You could also call this a triple bunk bed, since a trundle bunk brings a third mattress into the mix. The trundle slides right under the bottom of the bed, so it’s easily tucked away when not needed. This type is ideal for families who occasionally host guests, so you can roll it out for short stays.
Bunk Bed with Stairs: If you want a little more stability for climbing into the top bunk, choose one with stairs or a ladder, as well as guard rails along the top bunk to prevent anyone from rolling off or falling during the night.
Loft Bunk Beds: This is essentially a bunk bed with the bottom removed, leaving just the top bunk in use. We love this option for the older kids, as it frees up floor space, allowing you to add toys, furniture, or even make it a bunk bed with a desk.
