A Guide to Choosing the Right Bunk Bed
Space is precious, especially when it comes to growing families. Bunk beds offer an ideal solution, doubling your sleeping capacity without doubling your footprint. But with so many styles and features, choosing the right one can feel overwhelming! Which is where the Strictly Beds & Bunks team can help; we have created a guide to give you all the information you need to choose from all the different types of bunk beds.
Strictly Beds and Bunks has been providing British-made bunk beds since 2002 and throughout the past two decades they’ve become more popular than ever. Read on to discover the different sleeping solutions they provide, and the many additional benefits they can offer.
The Standard Bunk Bed
The traditional bunk bed is a timeless design which is also a space-saving solution for growing families. Two sturdy single beds neatly stacked, maximising your floor space. It’s perfect for siblings who share a room, or for hosting fun-filled sleepovers with friends.
The standard bunk bed’s beauty lies in its simplicity. It’s built to last, with a strong frame that can handle even the most enthusiastic bedtime routines. It’s affordable, adaptable to any decor, and endlessly customisable.
Triple Bunk Beds
Triple bunk beds offer a clever solution for maximising space in shared bedrooms, guest rooms, or holiday homes. These beds accommodate three sleepers vertically within a single frame, making them ideal for families with limited floor space.
If you’re looking for a functional and versatile solution for accommodating multiple sleepers in a limited space, a triple bunk bed is definitely worth considering. The efficient design and potential for fun make it a valuable addition to any growing household.
L-Shaped Bunk Bed
For families sharing bedrooms, bunk beds offer a space-saving solution. But what if the lower bunk feels too cramped or confined for your child? Enter the L-shaped bunk bed, a game-changer for sleepers who need a sense of space around them.
Instead of a traditional stacked design the L-shaped bunk bed introduces a lower bed that swivels away from the main frame at a 90-degree angle. This creates a sleeping space that feels separate yet connected to the top bunk. It’s like having two individual beds, but with the space-saving benefits of a shared structure.
Storage Bunk Beds
Bunk beds excel at maximising sleeping space, but what about if they could do more? Storage bunk beds are the ultimate solution for families needing ever more space. The ingenious storage bunk bed doesn’t just stack beds; it stacks solutions!
Storage bunk beds use the available space beneath the lower bed into drawers. Alternatively, the space beneath the upper bed is used for shelves, or a desk. This encourages a tidy bedroom as toys suddenly have somewhere to live, homework has a designated study space, or reading becomes an adventure with a customised reading nook.
Guest, or Trundle Bunk Bed
Need extra sleeping space without losing any of your floor space? The trundle or guest bunk bed is your practical answer. This clever design packs two beds into one frame, with an additional hidden bed nestled underneath the lower bunk.
Think of it as a built-in guest room in disguise. When sleepovers hit, a quick pull reveals a comfy bed ready for overnighters. No more scrambling for inflatable mattresses or wrestling with fold-out beds – the trundle is always there, tucked away and tidy.
Best of all, the trundle bed disappears when not in use, freeing up valuable floor space for play, study, or just enjoying the uncluttered room. No more tripping over spare beds or feeling cramped in a bedroom bursting with furniture.
