Bunch Your Own Bunk Beds in Style
Bunk beds are a staple of many childhoods. And it’s not surprising that all these people sleep in bunk beds as children: Bunks are still an remarkable space saver. While bunk beds themselves are rather commonplace, a complete bunk room outfitted with two or more sets of bunk beds is much not as common — and also a dramatic addition to any residence.
As you’re likely to locate a room filled with bunks in a summer camp or a youth hostel, a bunk room can still be stylish in your home. Bunk rooms can range for rustic to refined, depending on the fashion of the beds. And whether the beds have been built-in ready-made versions, a room filled with bunks can be a fun place for children (or the young at heart) to sleep. Here are 10 bunk rooms packaged with design and lots of room to sleep.
