Best Overall Space-Saver: Didi Shorty Bunk Bed

Coming out on top is our Didi Bunk Bed, which is the epitome of space-saving bunk beds!

This slimline bunk bed is smaller than your typical bunk bed, requiring mattresses of 75 x 175cm (available to purchase separately) and measuring just 181cm long. This makes it ideal for smaller bedrooms.

There are storage drawers beneath the bed and the panels are also reversible, so you can change up the look between white and grey, or colour-match your existing furniture.

With this incredible bunk bed, your little nippers will no longer feel like they’re packed in like sardines; instead, they’ll have plenty of room to splash around!

Best for Built-In Storage: Aviary Kids Bunk Bed

If you’re finding it hard to fit enough storage into your small children’s room, the Aviary Kids Bunk Bed can help.

Each bed has shelving running alongside it, offering the perfect place for your little ones to keep their most precious belongings or night-time essentials such as bedside lamps, books and drinks close by.

And that’s not all: the bunk bed also has two storage drawers underneath – each with a stylish faux leather handle – to give both kids a private storage area within the bed. These could even eliminate the need for a bedside cabinet or chest of drawers in a tiny room.

Best for Flexibility: Leo L Shaped Bunk Bed

If you need flexibility from your kid’s bunk bed, Leo is here to provide!

This multi-functional bunk bed is packed with storage, including a built-in wardrobe, shelving and storage drawers, all but eliminating the need for you to buy any other furniture for your children’s room.

However, the real appeal of this bed is in its flexibility. The beds can be slotted into position wherever makes sense for the room, just like a giant game of Tetris. Arrange them in parallel, as shown here, in an L-shape, or separate them, to form a high sleeper and single bed – the possibilities are endless!

This is the ultimate bunk bed to buy if your kids are sharing a box room now but might have a larger space or their own rooms in future.

Best Space-Saving Triple Bunk Bed: Aviary Triple Sleeper

Another flexible and space-saving option for small bedrooms is our Aviary Triple Sleeper Bunk Bed, which features a single bed on top and a small double bed on the bottom.

The larger bed on the bottom makes this bunk bed ideal for teenagers and younger siblings to share, or if you want a bed that parents can easily clamber into for cuddles and stories at bedtime.

As with the regular Aviary, the beds have built-in shelves running alongside them and two convenient drawers underneath, providing plenty of storage in a small space.
