The 10 Best Kids Beds for Small Bedrooms

It’s no secret that kids can use up a lot of space. Whether they’re playing with their ever-growing LEGO sets or enjoying a sleepover with friends, it can often feel like their bedrooms just aren’t big enough.

When it comes to those smaller bedrooms, you’ll know how important it is to really make the most out of every inch of space. Lucky for you, I’ve got plenty of first-hand experience when it comes to kitting out my kids’ less-than-huge rooms.

To help you save as much room as possible, I’ve handpicked the very best kids beds for small bedrooms. Take a peek at these space-saving (not to mention beautiful!) beds for your kiddiwinks:

1) Parisot Kids Tam Tam Bunk Bed

If your kids share a room together, a bunk bed is a no-brainer. No matter how big or small the bedroom, why take up double the space if you don’t need to?!

We’ve got plenty of bunk beds to choose from, but the Parisot Kids Tam Tam Bunk Bed is ideal when it comes to saving space. With its minimalist white design, this model will easily blend into any interior and won’t absorb any space-enhancing natural light. The handy shelves will mean kids can store away bits and bobs that might otherwise clutter valuable floor space. And to keep everyone happy, you can switch between blue or pink shelves!

To go the extra space-saving mile, you can even opt for additional storage. This model has the option to slot a roomy drawer underneath the bed, which is perfect for hiding away any games or books – without taking up any floor space at all. What’s not to love?

2) Lifetime Adventure Hangout Small Double Bed

When you’re trying to save as much room as humanly possible, you might not think a small double is the answer. If that’s the case, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find they can actually help you make the most out of a small bedroom. While kids’ small double beds give youngsters extra room to grow into, they can also offer plenty of space-saving potential. Look at it this way: the bigger the mattress, the bigger the underbed storage.

Take a look at the Lifetime Adventure Hangout Small Double Bed. Putting the fun in functionality, this bed combines a playful hangout area with plentiful storage. You’ll struggle to drag your kids out of the secret hideaway up top, so it’s perfect for bedrooms with limited play space.

To really get the most out of this model, you can add drawers or a trundle underneath the bed. This gives you ample storage space to hoard any gubbins, without having to take up any more room.

4) Parisot Higher Kids High Sleeper Bed with Desk & Wardrobe

Any parent will appreciate the brilliance of loft beds. For smaller bedrooms, loft beds help you make the most out of the space you have available by cleverly combining multiple pieces of furniture.

Instead of a bed, a wardrobe, and a desk sprawling across that much-needed floor space, the Parisot Higher Kids High Sleeper Bed neatly combines all three. This bed is perfect for bedrooms on the cramped side, as the spacious shelves provide all the storage your youngsters will need.

The roomy desk provides a great spot for kids to tackle that dreaded homework, or even a cosy space to watch films with their friends. Offering up ample room to sleep, work, and relax in just one compact unit, this bed really helps you get the most of a small bedroom.

Combining wonderful sleeping quarters with a spacious hideaway to play, the adorable Marlowe Mid Sleeper delivers ultimate efficiency. The roomy den underneath the bed will give little ones more than enough space to spread out and get stuck into their latest games.

For rooms that aren’t blessed with much room to play, this model creates the perfect hideaway for kids to enjoy themselves – without sacrificing any additional floor space. And that means you’ll save plenty of room for other important bedroom pieces, like a wardrobe or a bookcase.

6) Noah Gaming High Sleeper 1

Have you got a little gamer in your life? If so, you’ll know that PCs and gaming equipment can be incredibly bulky and take up lots of space. It can often be a big ask to cram all those gaming essentials into a small bedroom.

Fear not, as the Noah Gaming High Sleeper 1 is here to save the day. You won’t need to try and cram a gaming PC into the corner, as the lengthy desk comfortably stores up to three monitors and consoles underneath the bed. There’s plenty of space to cater for tall gaming chairs too, and the handy storage compartments are great for tucking away any games or controllers.

If your kids aren’t amazed by how efficient this bed is (they really should be, though!), then they’ll still love all the high-tech bells and whistles – from colour-changing LEDs to a built-in wireless charger, this bed creates the ultimate gaming zone.

This bed provides heaps of clever shelving and built-in drawers, which saves you from stuffing a small bedroom with any other storage compartments.

A pull-out desk slots neatly under the bed, giving your little one space to get their homework done. And as soon as they’re finished, it can be hidden away to make room for other important tasks (like perfecting that elaborate dance routine…)

If you have a teen in your midst, you’ll know that they can completely take over any room. My teens are already towering over me, and they’re not showing any signs of stopping! And not only that, but their endless supply of clothes, games, and revision supplies can make a small bedroom feel positively miniscule.

The Harry High Sleeper Bed is a perfect addition to any teen’s bedroom. Complete with a hanging rail for clothes, a pull-out drawer, and plenty of handy shelves, this bed makes saving space look easy.
