When there’s a place for everything and everything’s in its place, life is simply easier – but in a small bedroom lacking the right storage equipment, keeping organized is easier said than done. Luckily, modern storage bunk beds come equipped to meet the needs of today’s busy households. From spacious chests to savvy drawers, keeping organized in style has never been easier than with a storage bunk bed!
What Is a Bunk Bed with Storage?
In a bunk bed with storage, the classic bunk bed – one of those timeless bedroom staples beloved by both kids and parents alike – gets a practical, organizational upgrade. Featuring bedroom storage essentials perfect for kids rooms, such as chests for toys and cabinets for clothes, storage bunk beds make life simpler for everyone. Here are a few of the most popular types of storage that can be used with bunk beds; learn what efficiency in design can mean for your space, and see where ‘organization inspiration’ takes you!
Underbed Storage Unit: A bunk bed with storage will often feature storage components kept underneath the bottom bunk. Components will usually consist of multiple pullout drawers or one large storage trundle.
2-Drawer Storage Unit: A unit with two pullout drawers – designed so that it can be discreetly ‘tucked away’ under the bottom bunk of a standard bunk bed – adds practical storage space to a traditional bunk bed design.
Storage Trundle: If you’re looking for maximum storage potential, look no further than a bunk bed with a storage trundle. Featuring one large pullout drawer, running the entire length of the bottom bunk, a storage trundle in a bunk bed makes storing winter coats, blankets and pillows – and other bulky items that would otherwise be hard to organize – a breeze.
Storage Chest: Just as the name sounds, a storage chest is a unit that opens up to reveal an inner storage compartment perfect for keeping extra clothes and accessories. Many storage chests designed for bunk beds will feature multiple drawers, shelves and even cabinet space.
Stair Chest: Big on stuff, low on space? If this describes you, you’re going to need storage designs that work twice as hard – and a stairway chest is the way to go. Featuring a stairway design that can be placed adjacent to any bunk bed, a stair chest provides spacious compartments that pull out from under each step. Perfect for stashing away extra books, toys and more.
