Looking for a sleeper solution for a small room? Here are the best bunk beds for small rooms that will help you use the available space wisely.
Which bunk bed is the best for the purpose? We pick this Twin-over-Futon Bunk Bed.
You wouldn’t be here if you didn’t know the benefits of using vertical space in a small room. That’s exactly what bunk beds are all about. But did you know that you can use them for storage and even workspace as well? There’s no piece of furniture more functional than the modern bunk bed.
You have these types of bunk to choose from:
- Twin over twin.
- Twin over full.
- Full over full.
- Loft bed (no bottom bunk).
- Twin over futon.
- Triple bunk.
- Bunk bed with trundle.
- Build-in desk and storage shelves.
As you can see, there’s a lot to think about. What sizes and features do you need?
It is also a misconception that bunk beds are for kids only. While it’s a great bed type for a small kids’ room, you can accommodate sleeping in a small guest room with bunks as well.
Have these things in mind as you check out our list of top picks (with shopping links that earn us a commission at no expense to you.)
