Good ideas: Space Saving Bedrooms and Beds

There are several different approaches in creating an ingenious space saving bed for a home of modest proportions. The most straight-forward designs involve clever positioning of the bed, creating a slumber spot in a space that you would not normally consider using for this purpose–or otherwise.

The first example of simple space re-purposing would be to utilize the unused area under a staircase, like this cozy double bed set up. The custom made platform bed fits snugly into the under-stair alcove, and the design also incorporates under-bed and over-bed storage that runs straight into the side of the stairs too.

The under-stair area also works great for hideaway day beds/reading nooks like this one. 

Bunks under a sloping roof, are a perfect solution where precious floor space is eaten by a central stairwell. This particular example also incorporates a set of space saving storage shelves in each bunk chubby. 

Bunk beds are a great layout hack for getting more sleeping space out of a lesser floor area, but these bunk beds take up the least space of all: a shallow wall panel acts as the holding dock in which the beds can be folded away with ease when not in use.

  A mezzanine level is a winner in double height homes for all sorts of uses, but a bedroom hidden in the rafters is one of the best.

  The ultimate in luxury hideaway beds has got to be this elevating design…
