Working with a small and cramped room? Introduce a multipurpose space-saving bed into your life to transform your children’s bedroom, guest room, or studio apartment into becoming open and spacious for other uses. Here are some of our favourite creative ways to accentuate space and store extra belongings in style:
If you’re working with minimal space in a bedroom and there’s not enough room for a desk, utilize a pull down headboard as a desk. This is a perfect solution for teenage bedrooms, making it easy to transition from bed to study. A second mattress can also pullout from underneath too for any friends sleepovers sleeping over. We love the sneaky shelves for book storage inside the headboard as well.
For kids sharing a room, give them more play space by building up. A play loft has been constructed over the beds like a secret treehouse for your kids to enjoy while providing additional room space.
Kids love climbing, so a bed they can climb up to with a bonus canopy rooftop is a great opportunity for their fun and saving space. Use the steps for bookshelves and the area below the bed can easily serve as a play lounge or homework area with a desk. With a little creativity, this open concept bed structure is a win for everyone.
For kids too old for play rooms, you can still adopt the build-up technique and use the extra space for an age appropriate alternative. For example, this bedding structure allows a young pre-teen to store extra clothing in drawers under and beside the bed, put picture frames and special trinkets on shelving display, plus also serve as a cozy book nook by the window.
Another smart arrangement option for multifunction wooden bunk bed is building them into the corner. This set up maximizes use of floor space. The bookshelf between the beds provides extra dimension and separation between sleepers, and illuminated cubbies at the head of each bed guarantees each kid a private nook. Under-bunk drawers allow each child to store some of their extra belongings and an electric plug can come in handy for alarm clocks and other electronics.
