Built-in Bunk Beds

custom built-in bunk beds by Resort Custom Homes via AtticmagCustom built in bunk beds are a way to maximize bedroom space in comfort.

Built in bunk beds aren’t just for vacation homes anymore.  They are perfect for children’s rooms large or blended families, and don’t forget visiting grandchildren.  These sleeping spots provide a feeling of comfort and add a bit of adventure.  Painting the whole sleeping alcove a darker color then the rest of the room  (SW Warm Stone) sets it apart and creates a cocoon effect. Yet the bottom of the upper bunk is matched to the wall and ceiling color to keep the lower bed user from feeling too closed in.  Each sleeping space has its own narrow recessed shelves, light source and, thanks to individual windows, a view of the great outdoors.  Notice how the baseboard wraps this room, coming across the bottom bunk to tie it in. Simple molding decorates the front of each bed platform.  An open guard rail secures top level sleepers, but doesn’t close them in.  My favorite detail is the built-in stairs leading up to the double bunk (another pair of beds are to the left).  An added handrail for safety would be a smart addition.  An enormous room isn’t necessary to create an area such as this – here, ten foot ceilings and less than seventeen feet of wall space was all that was needed. Whether in the kids’ room or for overnight guests, built in bunk beds are a sleeping experience that also is space savvy.

    The built in bunk beds in our house are the hit of all the visiting kids (and parents). Only problem encountered is keeping upper bunk’s bedding neat and made up after overnight sleepiong. We replaced regular upper mattress with good quality air mattress and now take off the mattress, make up sheets etc and then easily return to its upper bunk with a quick adjustment of the top quilt all is neat and ready for next guest. All grandparents need a good bunkroom…lots of fun and lifetime memories for the kids. Allison…Happy Thanksgiving weekend. Hope your grandkids are close.

      Hey Larry. I thought of you when I was writing this post! Hope you had a nice Thanksgiving too. We celebrated at home a few days early, then went to Chicago to see the youngest one. Love our babies.

    I wish I’d seen bunks like this when planning our house. I really love how they create separate, more private spaces for each child, almost like a tiny room within the room. And not at all rickety or opening the opportunity for sibling war, like a lot of bunk beds.

    Hi Alan,

    Doubt there are any plans available though you might contact Resort Custom Homes and see if an arrangement could be made. However, I expect a talented carpenter could adapt this set up based on the photo. Good luck! Jane
