A Guide to Designing a Fun & Functional Kids' Room with Murphy Bunk Beds - Kootenay Murphy Beds

Designing a kids' room can be both a delightful and challenging task. You want a space that's playful and fun for your little ones, yet practical and functional for everyday living. One of the best ways to achieve this balance is by incorporating Murphy bunk beds. These innovative beds not only save space but also add a touch of magic to any room. Here’s a useful guide to designing a fun and functional kids' room using Murphy bunk beds.

Why Choose Murphy Bunk Beds?

Murphy bunk beds are a fantastic solution for maximizing space in your child's room. Unlike traditional bunk beds, these beds can be folded away when not in use, freeing up valuable floor space for playtime and other activities. At Kootenay Beds, our solid wood Murphy bunk beds are not only durable and high-quality but also customizable to match your design preferences.

Key Benefits of Murphy Bunk Beds:

  • Space-Saving: Fold the beds up during the day to create more play space.
  • High Quality: Handcrafted exclusively from solid wood, ensuring longevity and durability.
  • Customizable: Available in various colors and designs to suit any room theme.
  • Extra Sleeping Space: Perfect for sleepovers and accommodating multiple kids. Our Murphy Bunks accomodate up 4 kidos. 

Designing a Playful Yet Practical Kids' Room

When designing a kids' room, consider the following elements to create a space that’s both fun and functional:

1. Choose a Fun Theme

A themed room can spark your child's imagination and make the space more enjoyable. Here are a few ideas:

  • Adventure Theme: Think maps, compasses, and a treasure chest toy box.
  • Space Theme: Use stars, planets, and glow-in-the-dark decals.
  • Nature Theme: Incorporate elements like trees, animals, and nature-inspired colors.
  • Fairy Tale Theme: Add castles, magical creatures, and enchanted forests.

2. Pick a Color Scheme

Select a color scheme that complements the theme and makes the room feel inviting. Some tips:

  • Bold and Bright: Use vibrant colors like reds, blues, and yellows for an energetic feel.
  • Pastel and Soft: Choose softer shades like pastel pinks, blues, and greens for a calming effect.
  • Neutral Base with Accents: Start with a neutral base color like white or grey and add colorful accents through decor and accessories.

At Kootenay Beds, we custom color each Murphy bed to match your room perfectly. We collaborate with you to find the ideal color for your space.

3. Optimize Storage Solutions

With kids, storage is always a necessity. Murphy bunk beds can help by freeing up space, but additional storage solutions are essential:

  • Built-In Shelving: Use built-in shelves around the Murphy bed to store books, toys, and decorative items.
  • Under-Bed Storage: Utilize the space under the lower bunk for storage bins or drawers.
  • Wall-Mounted Units: Add wall-mounted shelves or cabinets to keep the floor space clear.
  • Storage Trunks: Our beautiful storage trunks can double as seating, storage for toys, book and other accesories.

4. Make Room for Play

With the beds folded up, you’ll have ample space for play. Consider these ideas:

  • Activity Zones: Create designated areas for different activities, such as a reading nook, a craft corner, and a play area.
  • Rug for Playtime: Add a soft, durable rug where kids can play comfortably on the floor.
  • Interactive Wall Decor: Use chalkboard paint or magnetic walls for creative play and display.

5. Add Personal Touches

Personalizing the room makes it feel special and unique to your child:

  • Custom Colors and Designs: At Kootenay Beds, we offer custom color options to match your room’s theme perfectly.
  • Name Plaques: Add name plaques or monograms to personalize each bunk.
  • Favorite Characters: Incorporate their favorite characters into the decor, such as bedding or wall art.
