Three Ways To Add More Sleeping Options In Your Vacation Home Without Using Traditional Bunk Beds

Posted on: 6 June 2017


When you have a lake home, you want to be sure that you have ample places for people to sleep when they come to vacation with you. While having bunk beds in the bedrooms can create plenty of sleeping options in the house, they often take up a lot of room and are not overly attractive visually. If you want to create ample sleeping arrangements in your lake home and create a unique visual look to the rooms, consider using a few of the more modern versions of bunk beds listed in the article below.

Choose A Convertible Sofa

There are now sofas available that look and feel like a regular sofa when you sit on them, but when the seat cushions are removed, a bunk bed frame can be pulled up. The backrests are used as the mattress for the top bunk and the seat cushions are used as the mattress for the bottom bunk. When your guests are done resting, the bunk bed easily turns back into a sofa by simply collapsing the frame.

Choose a Bunk and Futon Combination

If you want to be able to make the most of the space available in the bedrooms of your vacation home, consider adding a bunk and futon combination bed to the space. The futon can be used as a sofa during the day and be folded out to use as a full, queen, and some are even available as a king sized bed at night. This can be a great way to create an additional sleeping area, without taking up a lot of space in the room during the day.

Choose Hanging Bunks

There are also small beds that are designed to hang on the wall. The beds have support arms that fold out to give the beds support when someone lays on them. The arms can be folded under the bed and the bed can be tilted against the wall and secured with a small hook when it is not in use. This allows you to have all of the space in the room open when the beds are not in use.

All of these options are very affordable and will create the sleeping space you want without taking away from the openness of the rooms. Be sure to consider all three options before making a decision to make sure you choose the right furniture for the specific rooms in your home that you want to furnish.
