Grow into a New Bunk Bed

You’re shedding a few tears today because your little one has finally outgrown the race car bed. Since you are a bit too big for it yourself, it’s time to upgrade. So where do you go from here? That will depend upon whether you plan on bunking him with big brother, or leave him to a space he can call his own (to which big brother will be ecstatic). It will also depend upon how much space you have available in his room to begin with.

The bunk bed is a fabulous addition that never grows old. How many conversations of life’s wonders did you and your sibling have at night in your bunks as kids? These are some of life’s greatest memories. Today, there are so many different designs and styles on the market that your head just may spin a little. You will find a bunk bed to complete the classic white elegant princess room, the rugged country boy room, and everything in-between. A bunk bed also doesn’t have to be just two beds. When you have a small room to fill, the last thing you want is too much furniture, making that space feel even smaller. This trendy twist on the country cottage bunk bed by Lea Furniture is a fantastic option. It will eliminate the need for an extra dresser, which goes back to the whole less is more concept that suits the townhome and condo dwelling quite nicely. Your girls will love that it’s not quite so girly, but can still be decked out in pinks, purples, lime greens, or pastels to suit their current needs. Your boys will love that they can showcase their sports sets, country plaids, and even bold boyish polka-dots with room to spare on the floor for their war games (or if your boys are like most others, their endless array of dirty clothes).

If you are worried about the kids running up and down the ladder when they think you can’t hear them, then the multifunctional bunk bed design may better suit your need. This trendy look is very fresh and will last your children through various stages of their lifeā€”even when they move out and want to bring their half of the bed with them. These bunks are great when you have a bit more space to cover, but still want to stick to creating the feeling of a large space within the room. The T style design allows for a twin size up top and a twin or full on the bottom. What is unique about these is that most models will offer actual steps up to the top bunk with storage drawers within each step. This particular model by Berg Furniture is a true multi-functional piece of furniture art for the growing boys (or girls) room. A small work space, storage drawers, even a small book shelf above the bottom bed is perfect for the young pre-teen who likes to showcase a bit more independence than you are willing to be accustomed to. There’s even a great little shelf for the top bunk dweller to set a few favorite books or a small reading lamp. Even if you have just one child, this bunk bed is a great option for housing his best friend (or grandma) on weekends.
