Design Tips to Create the Perfect Bunk Room

February 27, 2023

Bunk beds are a great way to accommodate more guests and the design possibilities are endless.

Maximizing Space with Built-In Storage

Built-in bunk beds allow you to maximize sleeping space. Get creative with storage by incorporating wardrobes for clothing and drawers that can hold anything from folded items to a suitcase. Another functional purpose for drawers is to conceal every day items such as toys and throws.

Get Bold with Railings and Wallcovering

Railing design and wallcoverings are two ways to add personality and make a room feel unique. An eye-catching wallpaper can set the tone for the whole room, while another way to create impact and personalize a bunk room is the railing design. Contrasting colors or patterns in wood or metal can layer in for more visual interest.

Make the Space Functional with Lighting and Tech

When it comes to lighting and tech, it's important to think about functionality for your guests. Whether you use integrated lighting or decorative sconces that create ambient zones for each bed, or cubbies for books and charging your phone and tablet, your design can enhance functionality in individualized ways.

Design with Versatility in Mind

Contrary to popular belief, bunk rooms aren't only for kids. With the right design they can be sophisticated guest rooms for adults as well. Consider layouts that incorporate larger beds for a bunk suite that blends traditional bunks with a conventional sleeping space. Bring in textural wall coverings, textiles and cleaner lighting for a look that is more edited and creates a more versatile room overall.
