What Houzz contributors are saying:
Sleep sleeklyPay attention to the small details to make your under-bed storage become a stylish design statement, too. For a clean, minimalist feel, consider fixing push-click mechanisms inside under-bed drawers so you won’t need handles – or incorporate neat cut-out ones, as here. Positioning drawers towards the head rather than the foot of the bed (if you have to choose one or the other) is a good tip, so bedtime paraphernalia and books can easily be tucked neatly inside when the lights go out.
Double up…How to sleep four little people comfortably into one room? This is how. The design of these corner bunks is not only clever in its space-maxing abilities, but also in its simple and tasteful looks (courtesy of a classy neutral paint colour and unfussy joinery). While this might all be a little too sophisticated for a day-to-day child’s room (unless you have a pint-sized minimalist in the making living with you), it’s a perfect spare bedroom for sleepovers with little friends or cousins. A final note on the lighting: Also very clever, it’s suitably slimline for its compact context, has been tucked away in a corner that wouldn’t be used to rest a head against, and the bendy nature of the design makes it handily flexible.Browse through these images of bunk bed designs
Avoid under-bed storageIn contrast to the plus points of a blanket box at the end of the bed, underneath it is not so good. Beds are comfy and cosy and wonderful, but they do unfortunately harbour dust mites, so keep your freshly laundered linen elsewhere. Save great under-bed storage like this for items that needn’t be kept as hygienic, such as shoes.
