Space efficiency is always important, especially if you live in a small apartment. A bunk bed with a desk, 2 in 1 option, will save a significant amount of space in the children's room.

Furniture designers have put in a lot of effort to create furniture that maximizes space without sacrificing its practicality. That's how the idea of bunk beds with a built-in desk came about. As children grow up and start school, having a desk becomes essential. Even before school age, it's handy for kids to have a space where they can draw, write, or even play video games. However, in rooms where space is limited, finding room for both a bed and a desk can be quite the challenge. This is where bunk beds with integrated desks come to the rescue, providing a smart solution for kids' bedrooms.

But there is a solution to your problems, and that is a bunk bed with a desk. The following are the best bunk beds with desk chosen by The Sleep Advisors.

Our top bunk beds with desks

People who live in big cities as well as those who have more than one child are increasingly faced with the problem of lack of space because large apartments and houses are too expensive. For this reason, there are more and more bunk beds with desk on the UK market, and after testing a large number, we singled out the following 5 because they met the criteria of quality and functionality.

Not stopping there, the designers have even added small drawers within each step, adding an extra five drawers to stow away items like sports equipment or accessories.

This particular bunk bed model is exceptionally versatile, comfortably accommodating two sleepers within a compact space while offering essential storage solutions. While it's true that the storage space might not be as expansive as some other bunk bed models, this is expected, given the need to house two beds instead of one. Nevertheless, the storage capacity pleasantly surprises, thanks to the inclusion of well-placed shelves, drawers, and a convenient pull-out desk.

Rest assured, the bed frame is not only solid but also robust, ensuring both safety and long-term durability. The ladder, designed with wide rungs, provides a secure climb to the top bunk, promoting peace of mind for both parents and children alike.

You have the option to choose this bunk bed in classic white or explore two stylish combinations – gray/white and oak/white.

Plus, here's a great deal: should you opt to add mattresses right away, you'll enjoy a 10% savings.

In the realm of bunk beds, especially wooden bunk beds, this model successfully strikes a balance between space-saving practicality and a touch of modern elegance, making it an enticing choice for any family.

Best Gaming

First off, unlike all of the bed frames so far, this is a metal bed frame. So, in terms of durability, it's near the very top. And even its carrying capacity is higher than most wooden bunk beds.

Secondly, it comes with three spacious shelves and a desk, easily fitting all of your books or games within reach. Plus it has enough space under the bed to easily fit a larger gaming chair.

The integrated TV/monitor stand can also fit any monitor up to 40 inches, meaning that you can go crazy with your gaming setup.

Overall, we wouldn't say this bunk bed is for everyone. But if you or your children love playing games and want to be practical with your floor space, it's an excellent choice. Plus, it's relatively inexpensive when compared to most bunk beds.

  • Size: Single
  • Dimensions: 182 x 141 x 197cm

What to look for when buying a bunk bed with desk

In this part of our guide we will talk about the most important features that you should pay attention to when buying a bunk bed with desk. General features such as materials, warranty, workmanship and delivery will not be particularly emphasised since there are common to all products and not just to the bunk bed with desk.

Storage

What type of storage will be implemented in the bunk bed with desk depends on the manufacturer, so it varies greatly from model to model. These can be shelves, closet, drawers and various pull-out variations. The extra storage space provided by this type of bunk bed is of utmost importance to all those who have little space and few children.

Thanks to the shelves and drawers, you will be able to declutter space, and children will easily find their clothes and books, because everything will be in one place and not scatter around.

Ladders & sliders

An image of a bunk bed with a slide

Although at first glance all ladders look very similar, there is a big difference between them in terms of safety and how easy it will be for a child to get into bed.

Some models have stairs, which is certainly the simplest and safest option, but it takes up more space. That is why stairs are suitable for younger children, and for older children you can choose ladders. Pay attention to rungs as well, because often rungs have the biggest impact on how safe stairs or ladders are.

Included mattress

Some bunk beds come with a mattress, but most do not have a mattress included. Certain companies offer a discount if you buy a mattress right away, which is definitely an opportunity you should take advantage of, because a mattress is necessary.

In 99% of situations, a good single-size mattress is needed, and what you need to pay attention to is the weight limit. If it is not clearly stated, ask the manufacturer or retailer whether the weight limit includes a mattress or not. Some mattresses can be very heavy, which can endanger safety.

Tips for buying and using bunk bed with desk

You should buy a bunk bed with a desk from a reputable manufacturer. It is a product that should last for many years, and it must also be very safe, so you do not want to have any durability concerns. We advise you to use every extra space that a bunk bed gives you, because that way you will be able to keep your home neat, even if you live in a small space.  Don't forget to:

The advantages of owning a bunk bed with desk

An image of a bunk bed with a drawer

There are so many advantages of owning a bunk bed with a desk, it won’t be overstatement if we say that a bunk bed with a desk is a crucial piece of furniture for all those who live with children in a small space. But it is not exclusively intended for those who live in a small apartment. Why would they take up extra space, even if you have it?

Leave the more empty space to children where they can play, and the bunk bed with desk will provide them with everything they need, same as a separate bed, wardrobe and table. Another advantage is that you will teach the child to be tidy.

He or she will learn to use space rationally and to leave things on the same place, so next time it will be easy to find some particular thing. These are three biggest advantages of owning a bunk bed with desk:

Conclusion

And that's all you need to know! Needless to say, having a bunk bed with a desk can make your life a lot easier. You get added storage space, a solid bed frame, and a place to either do your work or unwind. But what do you think – which of these bunk beds can caught your eye?
