Looking for a 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 set up 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 perfect solution. The most obvious reason is that you can fit three kids in one room. But what makes it even better is that you can configure the bunk bed to efficiently fit the bedroom. You can see a couple of different configurations in the album below.
Building it yourself makes it easier for you to make use of the space efficiently. You can freely decide on the dimensions of the bed, allowing you to utilize the most out of the available space. Not to mention that it’s much cheaper to build it yourself, and a great way to enhance your DIY skills.
