When we think of bunk beds, our minds immediately flash back to our summer camp days. While we enjoyed swimming in lakes and learning to make friendship bracelets, summer camp isn't exactly where we'd like to draw inspiration for our grown-up décor. Bunk beds in this day and age, however, are a far cry from those dark wooden frames we grew up with.
Who would have thought there is a bunk bed for every style? Your child’s bedroom can now work well in your house without it sticking out like a sore thumb. While bunk beds are primarily for children, we love the new trend of incorporating built-in bunk beds in guest rooms in lake or beach houses, so plenty of friends or family can stay the night. And with these chic options (there's even twin-over-queen designs!), you'll never associate summer camp with bunk beds again. From clean and contemporary to colorful and playful, these are the most gorgeous bunk beds around.
Oeuf Perch Bunk Bed
Even minimalist design enthusiasts can incorporate bunk beds in their homes. This Scandinavian-inspired bunk bed is not only clean and simple but totally functional plus the laidback utilitarian style will age well as your children grow. Because this is such a simple design, you can brighten it up with fun bedding and patterns or keep it totally neutral.
RH Thayer Bunk Bed
For a more rustic take on the trend, turn to this well-constructed piece from luxury home furnishings brand, RH. The raw-sawed treatment of the wood reminds us of beachy driftwood, making this a perfect option for a beach or lake house.
West Elm Mid-Century Twin Bunk Bed in Acorn
For a bunk bed that won't interfere with your mid-century modern aesthetic, West Elm has you covered. The rich tone of the wood pairs well with most other wood shades, and the construction is simple yet stunning. We're obsessed with the feet of this bunk — so very MCM!
RH Laguna Storage Bunk Bed
This may be our favorite bunk yet. This version comes in a full-over-full option, so each bunkmate can spread out and enjoy their space. Our favorite feature is probably the storage drawers underneath — we're huge fans of built-in storage space!
RH Callum Loft-Over-Queen Platform Bed
We hear you: loft beds just remind you of your college dorm room, but we're guessing this version is slightly sleeker than what you were working with in your residence hall. This bed blends the trendy platform style with a twin bed on top, making it a great option for a guest room to accommodate your visitors.
Pottery Barn Kids Fillmore Stair Bunk Bed
If having a ladder on the bunk bed worries you, this stair option from Pottery Barn Kids might be the answer. Painted in a bright white with plenty of storage underneath, this bunk bed would work in any kid's room.
Pottery Barn Kids Nash Twin Loft and Lower Bed Set
This option is a real space saver. A twin bed is lofted over top of another twin bed but our favorite part of this has to be the built-in desk and bookshelves on the side. With plenty of room to finish homework, this is an ideal option for late elementary students all the way through high school.
Crate & Kids Babyletto White & Washed Natural TipToe Bunk Bed
For a truly affordable yet chic option, you can't do better than this bunk bed from Crate & Kids. Coming in at just under $800, this bunk bed has plenty of Scandinavian influence with its simple construction and white and birch color scheme.
Crate & Kids Abridged Charcoal Glaze Twin Over Full Bunk Bed
We're very into the full-bed on the bottom, twin-bed-on-top trend. And why wouldn't we be? It's an easy way to accommodate more guests and get more bang for your buck. Our favorite part of this bunk bed has to be the minimalist ladder — it's so chic and understated.
