Bunk beds save space. Small bunk beds save even more space. This list contains eight compact and narrow bunk beds for the bedroom. All of them are twin over twin bunk beds, and the majority of them are symmetrical.
Even if your kid(s) have their own bedroom, it never hurts getting a bunk bed for when they have friends sleep over. It can also be a lifesaver if you have a house full of guests.
That said, many kid bedrooms are not very big. Many of today’s bunks are huge (doubles, l-shape and incorporate all kinds of features such as slides, stairs, desks, etc.). This article showcases options for smaller kids rooms, mainly twin-over-twin bunk beds.
Below we showcase several top small bunk bed editorial picks.
