My girls both have their own rooms, which I thought they would love. Oddly enough, they are begging me to have bunk beds. They want to share rooms so much that my youngest has started sleeping in her sister’s wardrobe. Seriously. She has her little pillow, blanket and clock set up in there.

So while we figure out if this roommate request of theirs is long-term enough to warrant a new bed purchase, I’ve been pinning and pining over cool bunk bed ideas. Should we buy two sets and incorporate a place to play underneath one? Or would the second set be better used for sleepovers with our friends? Would we add storage underneath to elevate the lower bunk or keep it at ground level for my littlest girl? Hmmm, so many options.

This slideshow of IKEA bunk bed hacks has only made me realise how many cool, creative, crafty options there are to make bunk beds a dream (get it? dream?) arrangement.
