Space saving bunk beds provides more space for storage and other considerations, and built into bunk beds provide a safer, more robust solution for sleeping and room issues. Built in the bunks can take on hundreds of shapes and styles. In the end, it is simply a matter of your needs and aesthetic preferences. The disappearing wall beds are beds are usually attached on one side to the hinges built into a wall. When you want to hide the bed you simply remove the bedding, lift the distal end and push the bed into the wall where it locks into place. Shrinking beds have been around for years so why not integrate this space-saving technique into your built-in bunk bed design? To hide your beds in the wall, you need to build a recessed space so that the bottom of retracted beds is flush with the wall. If this solution is not an option, you can build an entertainment center or a number of shelves around the bed space to be level with it.
If you want to create a cozy yet spacious feel that your built-in space saving bunk beds make sure to keep in mind comfort and functionality. Think of the rooms of your bunk beds as very large shelves recessed in the wall. These shelves need to have extra space to hold a watch and various other things. You might want to install additional shelves for books. Install track lighting in the ceiling and side panels and drape some kind of curtain or shadow over the front of the bunk to add an even nicer, hidden quality to the room. Or you can take a cue from Japan’s “capsule” hotels and add amenities such as televisions, refrigerators and coffee makers.
You have probably seen sunken living rooms or bedrooms. Why not do the same with your built-in bunk room? Often two bunk beds will not get the job done. If you have more than two children or if you or your children often have overnight guests, adding an extra bunk at the ground will save you space and give you more options. By adding a bed space either on floor level or several inches or feet below, you can install another bed at normal height and build a third bed several feet higher. With this space-saving technique, you can even be able to squeeze in a fourth space saving bunk beds, depending on the height of your ceiling. Due to heating issues and other conditions, a recessed bed can be a better idea of a second or third floor.
