DIY Triple Bunk Bed


Looking for a triple bunk bed that makes good use of space in a shared bedroom? Then this project is for you!

For those of you who grew up sharing a room with your siblings, you know that space is at a premium. You might even have experienced battles over “space”. Figuring out the right setup in a shared bedroom is very important. In most cases buying pre-fabricated beds is not the best solution.

To efficiently use a small space things need to be customized. This concept of building a triple-stacked bunk bed is the perfect solution. The most obvious reason is that you can fit three kids in one room.

Sturdy, stylish, and budget-friendly, a well-made triple-stacked bunk-bed is great for kids who want and need a bit more room, but still want to share a space with each other!

What makes it even better is that you can configure the triple bunk bed to efficiently fit the bedroom. You can see a couple of different configurations in the album below.

These functional and gorgeous examples offer high-quality construction and designs that are both lasting and versatile.
