WANT to instantly make some more space in your kids room? Double height beds may be the answer.
Parents are suspending their children’s beds close to their ceilings in order to maximise floor space, and people are saying it is a genius idea.

The creative DIY option means that your child has the entire floor space to play and work – and if you are handy, doesn’t even need to cost a penny.
Pictures of double height beds were shared on the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips & Ideas.
The caption read: “This is so cool! Great idea for anyone who is able to make it happen!!”
Some of the beds were attached via wooden frames to the ceiling, meanwhile others resembled traditional bunk beds with another bed underneath for siblings or guests.

People were quick to praise the space-saving idea, and it has racked up thousands of likes and comments.
One person raved: “So much room for activities.”
Another commented: “We just did this for our daughter! Brought a normal high sleeper, chopped the legs off and fixed it to the wall (husband is a builder so I know it’s safe!), so much space for her!”
We also shared how a mum-of-three whose kids shared a ‘tiny’ room gives it a space-boosting makeover thanks to TRIPLE bunk beds.
Plus a thrifty mum uses bunk beds to split her daughters’ room in two so they can both have some space & it’s an instant hit.
