Have you ever dreamt of a treehouse when you were a kid?

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.

Bespoke Bunk Beds

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 custom made bunk beds Ireland are, it 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 Built In 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.

Both types of beds have their benefits and will look beautiful once customised to suit your needs.

Are they safe?

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.

Full Bedroom Bunk Beds

Are they worth it?

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

  • Your kids have been bugging you about it for the last two months, and/or...
  • Your kids are sharing a room and the space issue needs to be solved.

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.
Luxury Loft Beds

Here’s a few other practical things that make a bunk bed worthwhile:

  • They have their own space
  • If one wants to read they can have their personal light
  • You can install curtains for a more private area
  • They are less likely to keep each other awake with talking as they won’t see each other
  • A fitted bunk bed will make sure that there are no toys or other belongings falling behind it

Whether a bunk bed is a good idea or not depends on your kids and if you trust them.

Ask yourself the following things when it comes to your kids:

  • Going to the bathroom at night, can they do it on their own?
  • Not jumping off the top of the bed, will they listen?
  • One person at a time on the top bunk, will they follow the rule?

A few take outs from that article that are in particular useful are as follows:

  • Zipped bed sheets
    They will make the changing of the sheets very easy.
  • Sheet Clippers & Suspenders
    Sheet clippers will help the bed sheets to stay in place without them curling upwards during the night.
  • Bedroom Stools
    Using a stool will aid you in reaching the mattress on the far side of the bed
