Almost every kid I know loves the idea of a bunk bed, I know I did. That is the idea of being elevated, but I wasn’t too happy to be the kid sleeping on the bottom bed. My kids are not any different, so, I tried to come up with a bunk bed that fit their wishes.
I came up with a bed where they will both be elevated, use their own stairs to climb up and most of all look up without seeing the bottom of a bed. I believe my mission was accomplished once I heard they say “this is awesome”. They love being able to talk to each other looking at each other faces and of course climbing to each other beds.
I also had some fun with the “rail”. I decided to build a shelf/box. It serves dual purpose; it protects them from falling, and it serves as storage for their precious items.
In addition, their reading habits are a bit different. One loves reading in bed, and the other likes to browse through as many books as he can in a quiet little spot. The position of the bed helped in giving them both what they wish for. Happy dreams 🙂
