13 modern bunk bed ideas

Do you have a child who is desperate for a bunk bed? Although many parents worry about the safety aspects of a bunk, I personally gave in a year or so ago and bought my son one when we moved house. It's a handy way of having an extra bed in the house, without it taking up more floor space - and it's of course great for kids who share a room or for older kids who have started having mates over for sleep overs. We chose one that is relatively low to the ground and luckily we haven't had any falls so far (fingers crossed!)

But when I was looking around to buy a bunk I had a lot of trouble finding one that was modern and suited the style of the rest of my house. Today I decided I would put together some of my favourite examples of modern bunk beds and modern styling of bunks. Some are fairly expensive (like the Ouef Perch below) and others are inexpensive beds that have simply been painted and styled really well. So no matter what your taste or budget you should find something that you like! 

This first one is an example of an inexpensive option. I'm fairly sure the bed is this simple IKEA bunk - that has been painted white and styled to perfection. How adorable are the little monster footsteps! This room shows you don't have to spend a fortune to achieve a great result. 

My kids would absolutely love this next one - although I do question the safety of getting down for midnight toilet trips! And personally I would feel a bit claustrophobic actually sleeping in there - but that's just me...

This next one is from RafaKids - a brand of modern kids furniture that I featured back on this post a while ago. This is a great modular option if you have kids of very different ages or if you want to have just the bunk up the top and play space or desk underneath. I have one of their 'teen' beds in my youngest son's room, which you can see here and we love it. 

This next one is of my son Caleb's room with the orange bunk (that he chose himself and LOVES!). You can read more about this back here. I've since switched out these gorgeous Rachel Castle prints for a vintage Tin Tin poster, as I decided I wanted the prints for myself :) The orange has slowly grown on me. This bunk is the My Place from Domayne Furniture. 

These next examples are all the Ouef "Perch" bunk bed, which is available in Australia from Kido Store. This is one of my all time favourite bunks and was definitely on my wish list when we were getting Caleb's bunk - but it just stretched the budget a little too far for us at the time. If I am ever in the market for a bunk bed again I'll definitely be going for this one! 

I'm not sure where these last few examples come from, but I love these spaces and can't think of a kid who wouldn't want to have these as their bedrooms, so thought I would include them as some extra inspiration and styling ideas. 

Have a great day!
