Six best bunk beds for modern kids


Do you have some bunk bed decisions to make? Come and have a look at the six bunk beds at the top of our must-have list.

We were more than a bit excited to find this modern and stylish piece from the My Place range at Domayne. It’s not too tall, it’s available in four colours which will please both the neutrally-inclined among us as well as those who like our colours bright, and it comes in both single and king single options. The single bunks are $1099 and the king singles are $1299.

The lovely Oeuf Perch bunk can be configured in a number of different ways, which, along with its small footprint, makes it a fabulous choice in a bunk. It comes in two different colour combinations and of course, it fits seamlessly with everything else in the Oeuf range. This one will set you back $1999.

Lilly & Lolly Scoop bunk bed

How about the gorgeous Scoop bunk bed from Lilly & Lolly? It’s sleek and slimline and there’s a whole range of furniture to complement it, in a variety of finishes. It doesn’t come cheap though – this beauty will set you back $3250.

Pluunk bunk bed

This one hails all the way from Canada – it’s the Pluunk – which is also the sound my heart made when I saw it the first time. Such amazing international architecturally designed furniture comes with an equivalent price tag – CAN$4400! Still, it never hurts to dream, and you can get it shipped to Australia, if any of you have a lazy $4K burning a hole in your wallet!

Shanticot convertible bunk cot

Right at the other end of the price spectrum is the Convertible BunkCot for $965. It’s the only bunk bed we know of which gives you the option of pairing a toddler sized bed with a cot in a bunk formation. Space conscious families are sure to love this one.

House of Orange bunk bed

This stylish little number from House of Orange is a nod to Danish design, and comes in a variety of neutral colour combinations. They’re made to order and we think their minimalist style would happily see a child through into their teenage years, which is always a plus when buying furniture. The basic combination is $1850 and there are trundles available too.


  1. Ridiculously priced! How about bunks that families can actually afford?

  6. Can’t go past Ikea’s Kura Loft bunk. Very easy to paint and make it individual and unique. Easy to put mattress underneath for friends to sleep over. And a great cubby house too.

  7. The Piece from House of Orange is definitely something to watch out for. We have a baby furniture store of our own and are always happy to see what other designers come up with.

  8. Yes I believe that the one Susie Gray was referring to is located here on their website: great idea for when you want to save space with a bunk bed or switch back to your single beds layout.
