Low Bunk Beds

Buy the best low bunk beds selected and recommended by interior designers. By Eliza Bush.

Bunk beds are a popular choice for a child’s bedroom, perfect for shared sibling rooms and sleepovers. But low bunk beds can be useful when your kids are still growing. Relatively low to the floor (typically under 60” high) and with features that protect your children from falling out of bed, low bunk beds are perfect for toddlers and elementary school-age children. They provide an exciting sleeping arrangement and a space-saving play area. Explore our top picks for the best low bunk beds for kids.

Description

What we like: Minimalistic contemporary flair

Not so great for: Two mattresses

Some low bunk beds have an upper bed frame, like this twin-size with guardrails and an open frame bottom. You can add a second mattress for extra sleeping or use the area for a playspace, work area, or storage.

Designer Advice

Low bunk beds allow two sleeping spaces in a small room without risking your child’s head hitting a low ceiling. And an open base on the bottom allows for multiple uses. For example, a roll-up futon mattress or air bed is a great temporary sleeping space. Then the area can be used for other purposes the rest of the time.

What Users Say

Love it, great bed for my two kids. Easy to put together and love that it’s low to the ground. Feels much safer.

Description

What we like: slim ladder and built-in slide

Not so great for: thick mattresses

Slim wood frame bunk beds with a low height are perfect for small rooms with low ceilings and children of different ages. Built-in ladders that slant outward add a minimalistic look, and a built-in slide makes bedtime fun. 

Designer Advice

Bunk beds with a low height are a great choice for kids of different ages. The top bed can make older kids feel more grown up, while the bottom bunk bed can make younger kids feel bigger without risking their safety if they fall off. A slide is a great negotiation tool for kids reluctant to share a space with a younger sibling. 

What Users Say

My kids are 4 and 6 so it’s good for the younger ones because it’s not too high and the lower bunk is low profile. Also a plus, they love sliding down the slide that’s attached.

Description

What We Like: The trundle under the bottom bunk

What We Don’t Like: Painted finish prone to chipping

Not so great for: Toddlers or small children due to the bottom bunk’s height

Perfect for: Sleepovers and guest rooms

Made from solid pine wood and composites, this low twin-over-full bunk bed is available in either a gray or white finish. The top bunk has a guardrail, and there’s a ladder at the foot for climbing up and down. The bottom bunk is wide enough for two children or one older child.

In its standard configuration, the bunk bed can provide enough sleeping space for two or three children, depending on their ages. If you need space for a third bed, this bunk bed includes a trundle on four wheels. Both top and bottom bunks have wooden headboards and footrests, ensuring your children remain secure.

Description

What we like: Low, neutral profile

Not so great for: Larger children

The clean lines of this low-profile bunk bed make the neutral wood frame a versatile style for most spaces. A built-in ladder and full guardrail create a safe upper sleeping space. And the open space underneath can serve multiple purposes.

Designer Advice

Open-frame, low-profile bunk beds with built-in ladders save space and prevent injuries from bumping into ladders that stick out. When picking a bunk bed for your room, pay attention to the height of the guardrails so you get a mattress with the proper thickness. The rails won’t prevent accidental roll-offs if a mattress is too high. 

What Users Say

The dark gray is a great color and the bunk bed will be a treat for my grandkids. Love the fact that the top bunk is low and the bottom is on the floor for the little one.

Description

What we like: Top and bottom guardrails for safety

What we don’t like: Assembly process requires knowledge of power tools

Not so great for: Kids who can’t climb easily yet

Perfect for: Growing boys and girls, as the guardrail is removable

Available in white, gray, or natural hues, this low bunk bed is solid wood and features a ladder and two removable guardrails for security — one for the top bunk and another for the bottom. 

If you have two children with a large age gap who share a room, a low bunk bed with guardrails surrounding the bottom bunk can provide you with peace of mind. It ensures that toddlers stay put in the lower bunk while your older child can sleep on the top. When your child is older, you can remove the guardrail, increasing their freedom of movement.

What we like: Bunkhouse bed with a slatted roof; high weight capacity

What we don’t like: No guardrail options for the bottom bunk

Not so great for: Bedrooms with low hanging lights

Perfect for: Children who want a cozy top bunk for sleeping or reading

This low bunk bed is made from solid pine and medium-density fiberboard (MDF) and is designed to resemble a playhouse. The top bunk is protected by guardrails on the left, front, and rear, while a wall with windows on the right fully encloses the bed.

If your kids enjoy imaginative games, this bunk bed can be a playful addition to your children’s bedroom. The bottom bunk is open and close to the floor for the safety of younger children. But it could also make a cozy reading nook with the addition of several wall-mounted floating shelves for books.

Made from solid pine, the bed provides two short ladders for ease of climbing — on either end — and each bunk has support slats for a twin mattress. The top bunk also has guardrails for protection. As the bottom bunk is low to the floor, it’s also safe and convenient to access.

Description

What We Like: Durable steel construction; inclined ladder

What We Don’t Like: No bottom guardrails

Not so great for: Compact bedrooms

Perfect for: Guest rooms or vacation homes that need sleeping arrangements for adults and kids in the same room

This low-profile bunk bed features a steel frame and a modern design. The bunk bed has an inclined ladder for more comfortable climbing.

The twin-over-full bunk-bed frame uses metal slats to support mattresses, preventing them from sliding, and the top bunk has guardrails.

The inclined design also allows an older child in the top bunk to quickly check on a younger child sleeping in the bottom bunk. It's also an excellent option for kids and parents who need to share a room.
