Your kids don’t want separate rooms and insist on sleeping together in one room? Well, bunk beds usually come with two beds, but what if you have three little ones? Try this IKEA bunk bed hack!

A dresser under a bed is an excellent IKEA bunk bed hack if you have a space crunch or are trying to keep most of the floor clear for your kiddo to run around. Place dressers (buy, DIY, or order online as per the measurement) under the upper bunk to keep your kid’s toys, books, and clothes. This way, you will get plenty of storage in your kid’s room without taking up another wall. Plus, with everything at your kid’s reach, you don’t have to run to their room every time they call out to hand over their books or toys. It’s a win-win, mamas.

4. Homey curtain bunk bed

Give the bunk beds a homey feel with a house-themed curtain that can be pulled open or closed as needed. Your kids can use that cozy little nook for reading books or recreating pretend tea parties or castle life with their friends.

Your kids will love this IKEA bunk bed hack, especially if they love reading books (or you love de-cluttering and organizing things). This bookcase-bunk bed combo makes everything easily accessible from the comfort of the bed.

6. Triple-decker bunk bed

Expand their horizons, literally. This tri-level IKEA bunk bed hack makes three-to-a-room a doable sleeping solution. It’s another tremendous space-saving trick. Just ensure that the gap between the uppermost bed and your ceiling is sufficient for your kids to easily get in and out of bed. Their head shouldn’t whack into the wall when they wake up. While it may ensure your kids are wide awake for school, it isn’t the nicest way to start the day.

8. Fire truck bunk bed

Does your little one love fire trucks? Why not customize their bed into a fire truck? In a room with two bunks, make the lower level of one a fire station. The kids will be so enthralled with the imaginative play place that they won’t even care about sharing a room with their siblings.
