The Ultimate Guide to Triple Bunk Beds

Triple Bunk Beds are well known as space saving, super practical beds that are thrice as much fun as single beds for siblings or kids who love sleepovers.

Stack ‘em high

Floor space is a precious commodity in any family home, particularly when the children are sharing a room. So instead of building an extension or taking out a mortgage on a mansion, build upwards to make the most of the available space. Three-tier bunks are a brilliant solution for bedrooms that are somewhat cosy, leaving more room for desks, drawers and cupboards, as well as that all-important play area.

We love the 3 Tier Bunk Bed in Dominique Design by Mathy by Bols, with oh-so-sweet shelves on the sides for those budding bookworms, and a kaleidoscope of colours that will help you reach a compromise that each of the kids will love. However, you may need to pull names out of a hat to see who will claim the coveted top bunk!

Room for a little one

You don’t need three little monsters to invest in a triple bunk bed. If you’ve got two social butterflies in your family unit, set the scene for unforgettable sleepovers with a bed that has room for an extra little one. A bunk bed with a trundle pull-out draw will be perfect for ghost stories, midnight snacks and lazy Sunday mornings, to make those best buds feel at home when visiting for the weekend.

For a sleeper that will put the icing on the cake of your little princesses’ bedroom, the Parisot Bibop 2 Bunk Bed is hard to beat. With reversible shelves and safe steps up to the top, it’s ideal for growing girls whose toes are peeping out of their old toddler beds. This convertible design has an optional trundle drawer for when friends come to stay, which will tuck those toys and books out of the way when not in use!

Shopping for one princess with a lot of loyal subjects? If you’re searching for a bunk bed that’ll fit four, look no further. Available in a choice of sizes, the Lifetime Family Bunk Bed with Steps in Whitewash features a single top bunk, the choice of a small double, double or single bottom bunk and you have the option to add an additional pull-out trundle bed! No more airbeds and sleeping bags to break a sweat over – these inspiring beds make hosting sleepovers simple
