Make Room for More

No longer just for sleepaway camps and vacation homes, bunk rooms are fast becoming the newest way to outfit kids’ bedrooms. Whether you’re creating a shared space for siblings or want a room that ready for a sleepover at a moment’s notice, these designs are for you.

This pretty-in-green bunk not only has room for two sisters, but also houses a reading loft and desk area for homework and projects.

Integrate Smart Storage

Light, airy and kid-friendly, the bunk room at HGTV Smart Home 2021 is multifunctional and stylish. The custom bunk bed has easy-to-climb stairs to get up to top bed, and each step has a drawer for extra storage in the room. A blue-and-white leopard-print rug grounds the room in playful pattern, and shiplap detailing and a beaded chandelier bring in moments of coastal cottage.

Add in Clever Nooks

In HGTV Urban Oasis 2017, each bunk bed has a small nook built into the headboard. Double shelves provide ample room for stowing books, an alarm clock, reading light and other bedtime essentials. For a streamlined design, the steps up to the top bunk are integrated into the frame.

Design With Space in Mind

Kids needs room to play, so opting for a bunk room helps maximize the floor space. Designer Laura Umansky came up with a custom twin-over-full design that the boys’ father built on his own. Floor-to-ceiling bookshelves flank either side of the bunk, adding plenty of display and storage spots.
