Stylish Kids' Bunk Beds

Bulky bunk beds don't have to be an eyesore in a bedroom. Check out our favorite stunning bunk bed designs to incorporate into your kid's space.

Gender-Neutral Design

A navy-and-white color scheme in this open kids' room works for any gender. Interior designer Lauren Leonard placed two sets of bunk beds side by side for a built-in look. Simple labeled baskets underneath the beds add extra storage, and galvanized buckets hanging from thick rope bring a rustic element to the space.

Lap of Luxury

Luxurious elements fill this little girl's room, from the purple velvet chair to the plush pink-and-zebra-print carpet tiles. The steps to the bed are drawers that hold toys and other items, and the space underneath the bed is an ideal spot for homework or play. Ambient lighting and pink velvet draperies add softness to the space. Design by JKC Designs

A Boy's Palace

This entire kids' room is fit for a king. The castle bunk bed is made with lightweight concrete and is the ultimate kids' retreat, complete with a slide, drapes around the bed for privacy and plenty of lighting. Design by Troy Beasley

Girly Yet Sassy

Nothing says sassy like bright hues of pink and green. The bottom part of this pink bunk bed works as a reading space and a place for overnight guests to sleep. Designer Jennifer Ellen Frank added a bold pink ottoman for extra seating. Shelving above the bed blends with the bunk bed design for a unified look.

Vintage Inspiration

Interior designer Vanessa De Vargas of Turquoise Interior Design modernized this bunk bed while still keeping its true vintage look. Wall decals and colorful patterned bedding bring a contemporary look to the space.

Hidden Bunk Bed

Placing a hidden bed above the closet allows for maximum space to play. A wooden ladder leading to the bed brings a treehouse feel to the room. A bold striped wall treatment and wall drawings add whimsy to the space. Photo courtesy of IKEA

Loft-Style Bunk

This black-frame bunk bed is an ideal fit for the urban kid. The large desk and comfortable red leather chair provide a homework area under the loft-style, full-size bunk bed, allowing more space for other activities.

Safe and Interactive

This low bunk by CedarWorks is safe for younger children, and the different shapes incorporated in the bed give kids an interactive way to learn. The slide transforms the bed into a play area.

Purple Hues

The loft-style bed provides extra space to play. The butterfly art above the bed ties in the multiple shades of purple throughout the space, bringing a girly, contemporary look to the space. Design by Erica Islas

Sleeping Up High

Taking advantage of every nook is important in small rooms. Install your children's beds in the space of a vaulted ceiling for maximum space. This castle bed by IKEA is every boy's dream sleeping quarters. They can climb into bed using the ladder and come down on the slide.
