Bunk Beds With Stairs and Storage

Find Bunk Beds with Stairs Here

For those who have a large family, bunk beds with stairs and storage are ideal for combining practical space saving with creative and unique designs


Most of us are learning to go vertical to save space, especially when we have kids who share a room. 

Well there's no need to settle for just a standard bunk bed or twin bed system any longer; you can combine beds with dressers and desks and save space all at the same time.

If you're living in an apartment you'll love the idea of bunk beds with stairs and storage! Even a very small room can benefit from vertical decor.

Here are Several Styles of Bunk Beds to Consider when trying to Save Space:

  1. Twin over Twin with stairs/desks/
  2. Twin over Double with stairs/desk
  3. 3 in 1 Beds - Twin over Twin/Double with a Trundle
There's no need to look at an 8ft by 10ft space and think

horizontally! Here are some visual tips to help you along the vertical decorating process:
  1. Measure the room or gain a sense of it's size before you start anything
  2. Determine which wall would best suit a Bunk Bed system
  3. Assess whether a bunk bed system with stairs would interfere with the flow of the room
  4. If the staircase is positioned out of the path of the door, and wouldn't block the closet or window, that should be the place you decide to work with
  5. Get the measurements of the bunk bed units you like best
  6. Cut a piece of string the length of each side of the bunk bed system - that string will be used on the floor to create a visual aid of the area it will take up
  7. Don't forget to mark the height of the unit on the wall (in chalk or a piece of masking tape) 
  8. Be sure that the bunk will be positioned away from any ceiling fans or light fixtures
  9. Now stand back and look at the area the string on the floor and the marker on the wall take up, and decide whether the bed system you're choosing will work
  10. If you've decided upon a 3 in 1 bed system (a Trundle too), don't forget to allow for floor clearance so the trundle bed can be pulled out
In Regards to Dressers:

If the unit you're selecting has built-in dressers, be sure to allow for clearance for when the drawers are pulled out. 

Here's a Useful Tip (One I've implemented in every bedroom of my own home)

How to Get Use from Your Old Dressers!
If you find that the built-in dressers of a bunk bed system aren't enough, and you don't want to buy additional dressers, but have old ones - put the old dressers in the closet. 
By using your own old dressers in your closets, you'll get a closet organizer without having to spend big bucks having one custom designed! 
This is easy to do! Measure the dresser and the closet first to be sure the depth of the dresser will fit inside the closet. Position the dresser inside the closet so that when the closet doors are opened, there's clearance to open the dresser drawers. You may have to be creative to get everything to fit neatly, but that's the fun part!
If you're fortunate enough to have a walk-in closet, they're a perfect place to use old dressers.

  1. We had a bunk bed set for our oldest two children for years. Later it was used as a set of twin beds. Definitely space saving. I've also used (and still use one) old dressers for storage in closets. Very useful advice, Barbara.

  2. I really love bunk beds, but I especially love the one you have featured with the built-in storage. I would have loved having the bunk beds with the table and benches when I was a child. It would have been like having your own dining room right in your bedroom. What fun! Even for adults, I think it would be awesome for anyone who is physically able to climb up the ladder. Too bad I don't think all of our overnight guests could manage it or I would definitely change out the guest bedroom twin bed with that unit.

  3. I really like the loft bed for adults idea - cool! We had bunk beds for our boys and it would have been very nice to have the built-in drawers below. So many creative choices!

  5. I think this is a great space-saving solution. There are so many more options now than when I had children living at home. The storage space is really handy.
