4 Fun Ways to Play Up a Bunk Bed in Your Kid’s Bedroom

Bunk beds have long been a staple in children’s bedrooms. Not only do they allow for more floor space, they also imbue a room with a sense of adventure and fun. Here are a few easy and affordable kids’ bedroom décor ideas that will take your bunk bed from The RoomPlace to a whole new level.

A Twinkling Take on a Canopy

Is your little one afraid of the dark? This pretty solution is a great alternative to a nightlight. String a canopy of holiday lights over the top level of the Catalina White Full Bunk to create a clean, gentle glow. Your child’s bedroom will instantly feel more magical, and the soft lighting also cultivates a space to read, tell stories, and relax.

A Shared Bedroom Solution

If your kids share the same room, these bunk bed decorating ideas prevent tension before it even happens. Install a curtain around the perimeter of the Lilah Bunk (we recommend installing curtain rods from the ceiling for a cleaner look) to create privacy and cultivate that beloved fort-inspired feel. If one child wants to keep playing Legos while the other wants to snooze, this makes it possible, sans conflict.

Spark a Love of Reading

Bunk beds can be perfect for a single occupant. We love when customers use a piece like the Sundance Twin Over Full Bunk Bed to create a reading nook and a sleeping spot all in one. Load up the bottom level with lots of fluffy pillows, a cozy blanket, and string some holiday lights around the “roof” of the bunk. To complete the look, you might want to even install a floating bookshelf on the wall of the bottom bunk.

Create A Safe (and Artistic!) Environment

The top bunk can feel awfully high up to children. For your youngest ones, a kids beds with stairs is the perfect safety solution. Instantly add steps to a bunk bed with the Catalina Staircase.

An added bonus? You can paint the outside-facing wall with chalkboard paint. When your kids aren’t climbing to the top bunk, they can use the surface to hone their artistic skill.
