Several months ago, my 4 year-old son started begging for bunk beds to share with his 2 year-old little brother. I told him maybe he could have them when he's older, but right now I just didn't think that they were ready. Soon after that conversation, I started coming across all sorts of fun built-in versions all over the internet. Who could blame him for wanting some when there are so many cool options? After coming across the photos below, I now secretly want some for myself. Ok, maybe not - but how cool are these built-in sleeping spaces?
These built-in bunk beds by August Fields would be an awesome guest spot in a basement or extra large bonus room. Or maybe if you have loads of kids and are short on bedrooms? Actually, the more I think about it, I'd love this for my boys' room - two bunks for them, and two for their little friends. Love the striped bedding too.
I think these are pretty fun. (And I think my boys would agree.)
These colorful bunk beds are adorable! Love the painted wood planks surrounding them.
Ok, my boys would go crazy for this built-in bunk arrangement!
Or this vibrant, colorful one.
This one is very cute, and I love the little desk nook beside the bed.
I L-O-V-E these! Everything about them. The bright white surrounding the pops of orange and blue in the bedding. Perfect for a little boy's room.
I'll take these for myself, thankyouverymuch.
How fun would these be in a bonus room/hangout room? Perfect for guests, especially if your kids have friends spending the night.
I absolutely love the rolling ladders. Oh, and everything else about this space too.
Since my boys are still too young for bunk beds, I think we'll go with twin beds instead and put these ideas on the "maybe in a few years" list. I'll be attempting to make their headboards all by myself - so stay tuned! For now, we'll just daydream about these fun, whimsical built-in sleeping spaces. Maybe someday...
What do you think about these built-in beds? Do you want one for
