Wordful Wednesday: Who Needs Bunk Beds?

Ever since we found out w were having triplets, my husband and I have developed an unnatural fascination with bunk beds and the many variations on the standard theme.

Since the boys will have to be at least five before we can safely move to bunk beds (and even then I question how long it will be until they are leaping off the top bunk), we've had lots of time to talk about future sleeping arrangements.

Should we go with two sets of traditional bunk beds and have an open bunk? How about a triple bunk arrangement with the middle bunk at a right angle? Maybe a bunk bed with a trundle to save some space in an already small room?

There are ultra cool options like this sofa bed/bunk bed:

Of course, ultra cool is also ultra pricey!

And more traditional, but still cool options like this:


Although I don't see any of my crew sleeping peacefully together. It would be either a fistfight or a gigglefest every night in that bottom bunk!

But as it turns out, we have the perfect solution already at hand:

Amelia, Alex and Isaac show off their new "beds."

Who needs bunk beds when you've got closet shelves? There's even room for Sam on the top "bunk!" Simple, cost-effective and very compact. What more could we ask for?

Sometimes you do what you gotta do! lol That first bunk bed/sofa set is pretty cool, although I'm sure it costs an arm and a leg.

That sofa bunk bed is awesome! Though the shelf 'beds' the kids came up with look like fun, too. ;)

You could get a 'normal' bunk bed and then one like this one:

With a desk the width of the length of a bed, more then one child could WORK at that desk.

We had the bunk beds where the bottom bunk is a full size bed. Worked great for us.

Yep. I like the last solution! Very hard to get out of. We bought a set of bunk beds at costco this year but like you are not brave enough to stack them yet. So each boy has one.

The design was so great. The children could also enjoy it since it has a lot of twist.
