House-Shaped Loft Beds and Bunk Bed Playhouses
A bunk bed or loft bed is a really great way to save space in a kids room, so why not make it extra fun by making it look like a playhouse, too? And if you only have one child sleeping in the room, you can always use either the upper or lower bunk as a designated play space or reading area, so you still get the 2-for-1 bonus.

A combo of a loft bed and a house headboard — this bed has room for storage underneath, too! And I love the picket fence style detail! (Casa Com Amor)
Alright… this treehouse isn’t a bed, but it could be with just a couple modifications! Get the tutorial here.
This might just be the *ultimate* kids room — it’s a bunk bed with a play loft, plus storage cubbies, plus stairs to get up and a slide to get down. AND the stairs are drawers. (via Bebe Com Estilo) I think the only thing that can possibly top that…
might be this, because what kid wouldn’t want to sleep in a castle bed? And a castle loft bed with a swing and a tea party underneath… I think that takes the cake! (via macarenanguyen)
