Bunk Beds that Save Space

One of our favorite ideas to save space in the kids’ bedroom, bunk beds are easy to incorporate and do not demand a lot in terms of resources as well. Having grown up in a home with four kids, we totally understand the value of bunk beds and all the practicality they bring to a small home with a single kids’ room. A wall of bunk beds is currently a hot trend and is perfect for those sleepover parties that your little ones so much love.

Maximizing Space and Corners

Many homeowners often forget that the corners are an important part of the room and have plenty to offer when it comes to smart spatial solutions. Custom corner wardrobes, shelves and cabinets can be created to meet the specific demands in the kids’ room. While open shelves allow you to create beautiful displays and can be used as bookshelves as well, closed cabinets allow you to tuck away stuff with ease. There are times when beds and bunk beds can be placed in the corner as well to free up rest of the room and to create additional play area or even home workstation.

Creating Custom Look with Right Theme

Just because the bedroom is small, that does not mean you need to compromise on the style of the room or the space-saving solutions you wish to try out. In the small eclectic bedroom, you can try out shelves and cabinets in multiple styles while modern bunk beds can fit into rooms with a wide range of themes. Instead of just shelves, cabinets and bunk beds, you can even think of idea like a loft bed with workstation underneath or a Murphy bed to create that additional space out of nothing!
