Have you ever dreamt of a treehouse when you were a kid? Custom made bunk beds were always a very close alternative for the adventurous treehouse and are a dream of most children.

Since a home is all about how we feel when you are there, custom made bunk beds will always evoke the feelings of fun and creativity.

With such a big change in the house and in the lives of your children, try to consider your children’s expectations. A bunk bed, when it is custom made, will be a guaranteed space saver if approached correctly.

There are two types of bunks you can choose from:

  • A built in bunk bed that is stationary
  • A freestanding bunk bed that has more flexibility

Both types have their advantages. Before making your final choice it’ll help if you can identify your needs and future plans first.

Please NoteCustom made bunk beds are stylish and blend in perfectly with your other units, but they are not a budget-oriented option. They are a premium product with prices starting from €3000 and scaling up based on the individual requirements. Standard, non-bespoke bunk beds in the €500-€1000 price range can be found on BunkBed.ie.

We make our clients happy!

We are extremely happy with the service provided from start to finish. Derek, Alan, Vanessa and Declan were very thorough and accomodating with all our requirements and provided an extremely professional service. It was a delight to work with Vanessa. She is an extremely good designed and very accomodating. We have plans to get a few more things done and I will definitely be going back to Custom Made in the near future.


I am delighted with the service received from Custom Made! They designed and built an alcove unit and two built-in wardrobes for me, and in each case I was delighted with the difference they made to the rooms: they feel brighter and more spacious now. The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.


Custom made previously provided stunning alcove cabinets for our new home. This year we gave them the difficult job of exactly replicating those units after we had extensive flood damage to our home. Vanessa and the team did an amazing job and now our sitting room feels just like home again. It was a pleasure to deal with custom made throughout the whole process from design to installation. We would highly recommend them to anyone looking for beautifully finished custom carpentry.


We cannot recommend Custom Made enough! From the moment I first spoke with Vanessa their attention to detail was incredible. Derek dropped in to discuss our requirements and measured up, then we received emailed drawings of our units for our approval. Eoin, their cabinet installer, was an absolute gentleman, very polite and professional. We are delighted with our finished cabinets!

Thomas & Martina

We are thrilled with the quality of work and customer service we received from Custom Made. They designed and built a big kitchen unit and a desk that fit our needs perfectly. We asked for the unit to match the colour and design of our kitchen and they did it to perfection. The installation team were neat and efficient, and were happy to make any changes we requested. We cannot recommend Custom Made highly enough.


I found the team very professional and helpful throughout. In particular, Vanessa was fantastic to deal with — and the main reason we went with Custom Made in the first place. The end product (built in shelving units and floating shelves) was spot on. Couldn't be happier and would highly recommend.


We couldn’t recommend Custom Made highly enough. They were very professional and reasonably priced. We are delighted with our built in wardrobes, alcove units, floating shelves and kitchen. Vanessa worked with us at every stage from initial call-out to installation to make sure we were happy with everything and any late changes were very kindly accommodated. We will definitely use Custom Made again and recommend them to friends and family!

The process was very smooth, nothing was too much trouble and the standard of craftsmanship and service was excellent. I would highly recommend them.


We recently engaged Custom Made to design and install fitted wardrobes, hallway storage, alcove storage and a TV unit in our home. From the initial emails to meeting the designers and fitters, we were very happy with the service. We felt our ideas and requests were really taken on board during the design stage; no question or request was too trivial for Vanessa. The team who worked in our home, from the fitters, apprentices and delivery men were incredibly helpful, professional and hard-working.


Delighted that we selected Custom Made to work on our new furniture. Thanks to their invaluable help at the design stage (thank you so much Vanessa!) we can enjoy our bespoke furniture which we absolutely love. It has been a great experience from the design stage to installation; they are very professional, the quality of work is second to none and they are such a pleasure to deal with. We have a few more rooms to fill and will definitely use Custom Made's services again.


Custom Made are a very professional outfit! They made and installed a walk in wardrobe with revolving floor to ceiling shoe racks for us as per our design and we absolutely LOVE IT. Many many thanks to Vanessa (best of luck in your new home!), she was extremely helpful and patient, always in good humour while dealing with us, such a lovely person to deal with. Thank you!


Simply brilliant to work with. We went with Custom Made because of their strong reviews — So glad we did! Vanessa designed the pieces and worked with me to adjust the designs until they were perfect, being super-responsive and patient all the way through. She kept us up to date about installation dates, and the team arrived on the date promised. The result is delightful - we're so happy with the two units! Highly recommend them!


We installed alcove units with floating shelves in our living room and were delighted with the finished product. Our house is old so it wasn't a straight forward job but the team did an outstanding job fitting the units to such a high standard on the day. Vanessa is fantastic to work with. She was prompt with answers to any questions we had and was happy to help with every step of the process. I would happily use Custom Made again for work in our house.


We had wardrobes built by Custom Made recently and couldn't be happier with them. We had some ideas but Vanessa's suggestions were invaluable, they were also flexible about what we wanted to do unlike some other companies we had approached. The team were great and we are delighted with the finished product. Highly recommend!


Bunk Beds Ireland

Freestanding bespoke bunk beds aren’t fixed to your walls for support. You can adjust the bunk bed according to the changes of the lifestyle in your home.

For example, you can move it to a different room. You can separate the levels. Take the bunk beds with you to a new home or sell it if it’s use becomes obsolete when your children grow up.

However versatile are our custom made bunk beds in Ireland, they may cause a room look smaller and appear bulky. To avoid that from happening you can work with your designer hand in hand. A freestanding bunk bed will not be able to fill in the available space the same way a built in bunk bed will.

Custom Made Bunk Beds

Built in bunk beds are, without a doubt, a serious commitment when it comes to updating your kids’ rooms. A built in bunk bed be as creative as you want it to be and the best thing about it is that it will be perfectly functional.

A custom design built in bunk bed will allow you to utilise every corner of the available space. You can choose the design of a bunk bed based on the storage you wish to be incorporated into its structure. This can be anything from closed cabinets, open shelves to stairs with storage areas.

If you are limited by your childrens' bedroom layout, you can make certain adjustments relatively easily. Each type of bed has its benefits and will look beautiful once customised to suit your needs.

We work with qualified electricians and plumbers who can move sockets, relocate radiators or carry out more in-depth maintenance work like immersion heater repair or replacement.

If your heater is in need of a repair or any radiators need to be upgraded, we recommend addressing this before installing new units to avoid having to remove them temporarily to facilitate the repairs. You can easily book an immersion heater repair or another plumbing service here.

A bunk bed is an exciting project to undertake. The main thing to do is research. Make sure to have extensive discussions with your kids to make sure it meets everyone’s expectations.

How Safe Are Bespoke Bunk Beds?

One of the main concerns that parents have for their kids when it comes to bunk beds it’s safety. The top bunk bed in particular is viewed as the most important part of the safety.

This is important to choose a reputable cabinet maker to build a quality bunk bed. An experienced cabinet maker will know how to make a safe bunk bed.

This source will give you a detailed set of safety points that you should draw your attention to.

Here are a few safety points that in our research have been the most recurring on this particular matter:

  • For any accidents that may happen it is best to place a carpet underneath the bunk bed acting as a buffer
  • Different countries have different safety standards but in general, kids under the age of 6 should not be allowed to stay on the top bunk
  • Don’t install bunk beds beside windows, ceiling light fixtures and fans
  • Use the LED lights or night lights to illuminate the stairs for the purpose of night time bathroom trips
  • EU Regulations require the mattress for the top bunk to be slimmer than the bottom bunk. We design our beds with safety in mind and we can point you to the right low profile mattress for you.

Custom Bunk Beds Dublin

The reason you’re looking into bunk beds can be either because:

  • Your kids have been asking you about it for the last two months, and/or...
  • Your kids are sharing a room and the space issue needs to be resolved.
  • Beds made to order by an expert cabinet maker have a lot of options to increase space and functionality of the room. You’ll quickly realise that it’s a worthwhile investment once you begin your research.

It may seem that a bunk bed is just a simple piece of furniture. If you dig deeper you’ll realise that it can act as a bonding catalyst for your kids.

Sharing a room with a sibling will teach your kids how to compromise and figure out privacy issues from a very early age.

This quality is particularly relevant for boys as they don’t seem to be very vocal about their feelings. Sharing space with another male, especially if it’s a sibling will teach them how to open up.

These skills will come in handy when they decide to move out or live with partners at a later stage of their lives.
