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.
