Bunk beds for kids aren’t just a way to maximize space in crowded bedrooms. No, dear parents. They’re a way for kids to bond during slumber parties. And when it comes to toddler bunk beds, they’re a great way to introduce younger kids to non-scary independent sleeping, especially when they’re paired with a sibling.
Small bunk beds, meanwhile, can transform a bedroom crammed with Nerf guns, dollhouses, and other toys into … well, not something quite spacious, but at least with some room to maneuver. And all that aside, children’s bunk beds make bedtime just more damn fun. Here are ones that we love: They’re sturdy, well-made, and grow with your kids.
Bunk Bed with Stairs and Slide
This solid wood bunk bed sits right on the floor, so it's an ideal choice for toddler who might roll out in the night.
Not only does this bunk bed have stairs, but it has a slide to double the fun of getting out of bed. The bed frame is made from solid New Zealand pine. It has a 400 pound weight capacity per bed, so it will last your kids a long, long time. There’s also a metal support bar for added reinforcement to the tp bed. The slide is removable. And we particularly love that the bottom bed sits only two inches off the floor, just in case beginner bunkers roll off in the middle of the night.
Triple Bunk Bed
This triple bunk bed is the perfect choice for parents whose kids love them some sleepovers.
The great thing about this triple bunk bed: It easily converts into three twin beds or two bunk beds and one daybed. Each bunk accommodates a standard size twin mattress. The weight limit here is 160 pounds per bed, so you won’t be using this as a triple for very long. But hey, it’s great fun while it lasts. There’s an integrated ladder for coming and going, and bed slats for extra support.
Bunk Bed with Trundle
When you want the space without the triple-bunk scenario, the trundle bed is your go-to solution.
Each of the bunk beds supports 250 pounds of body weight, and the bunks can be split into freestanding beds. As for the trundle, it comes with two groove cutouts and wheels underneath so it’s easy to pull in and out. And of course, it means no one ever sleeps on the floor again. It’s all made of solid wood, and the bunks have safety guardrails and an integrated ladder.
Full Size Bunk Beds
Because honestly, who actually enjoys sleeping in a twin bed?
Each frame fits a full-sized mattress, so kids sleep in sublime comfort. They each have a 400-pound capacity. The bunks can be split into separate, free-standing beds. There’s a reversible ladder with rounded edges and grooved treads for comfortable, easy climbing in and out.
