Welcome to our gallery designed to help out anyone looking for fresh bunk bed designs!
While we’ve covered other design varieties on Home Stratosphere before, today our focus is on bunk bed frames with built-in steps.
We’ve gathered a selection of some of the best examples of these particular bunk beds, showcasing the rich diversity of style and configuration you’re bound to encounter while looking to purchase.
We’ve selected models based on appearance, build, and utility, in an effort to help narrow the search down or simply get you started shopping in the right direction.
One of the best aspects of bunk beds is their seemingly limitless variety of configurations and feature sets. With everything from built-in desks to hidden storage, it’s not surprising to see such a range of models equipped with stairs.
Serving a dual purpose, the stairs not only allow for easy top bunk access, but can often conceal extra storage in the form of drawers within the steps.
Our featured image above sports a rich dark wood base with two twin mattresses, stair storage, and drawers beneath.
We hope you find our selections useful as either a guide or jumping off point. Anyone looking to purchase a new bunk bed for their home would do well to click the attached links and compare any and all interesting models.
