If you have children and you want to downsize to a small house, one of your concerns may be whether there will be enough room for them. With a bit of creativity, there will be plenty.
Note: This article is part of a small and tiny houses article series.
Children are very adaptable, if not taught to be otherwise (e.g. spoiled). Therefore, moving them to smaller quarters should not be a problem. If you install space-saving built-in bunk beds in your new small home and add a few cool accessories, they will likely see it as an upgrade. Then you can have your small house, all the advantages that go with it, and everyone will be happy. 🙂
Here’s a short photo tour of a few clever built-in bunk beds. Keep in mind that you can install more than just two bunks in a single room. You might need to add a soundproof (cell) phone booth if you do, however. 😀 Seriously! Get creative. That’s what “tiny living” is all about. I think it should simply be included in a broader category called “smart living.” Enjoy the tour.
I hope you got some ideas and inspiration from this short photo tour of built-in bunk beds. If you want to see a lot more go to this article entitled, “Bunk Rooms Rock in Small Houses.” All of the photos there have more than two bunks. Some of the bunk rooms have enough beds for a bunch of kids.
