When most people think about furnishing a guest room for adult visitors, or even outfitting a lodging space like a hostel, a camp, or a government or first-responder housing facility, their first thought is not of triple bunk beds for adults. Many first toy with the idea of queen beds, cots, or standard double bunks and never even consider the potential for triple-stacked bunks.
However, if you find you have ample overhead space, with a ceiling height of ten feet or more, you can use vertical space to your advantage and squeeze in more beds while saving square footage. You do need to find the right bunk beds to ensure a stable and secure structure for up to three adults to sleep on, but once you’ve found the right product, you’ll enjoy several benefits from this unique bedroom setup.
1. Save space
The first and most obvious advantage of choosing triple bunk beds for adults is that you’re going to save a ton of floor space while housing a lot of people. If you tried to squeeze three twin bed frames into an average bedroom, you’d not only have very little room to maneuver, but there’s no way you’d squeeze in other needed furniture like a dresser, a desk, or even a chair. This makes triple bunk beds an ideal choice not only for kids’ rooms, but also for guest rooms designed to accommodate adults.
2. Increase capacity
For those running a business or facility offering communal-style lodgings to myriad adult guests, triple bunk beds provide an ideal means of squeezing in a lot of sleeping berths without creating cramped or cluttered quarters. This option is also great for homeowners used to housing large, extended families for holiday gatherings, family reunions, or other events throughout the year.
3. Save money
Buying beds is no cheap affair, especially when you start adding up mattresses, bed frames, headboards, and more. Compact triple bunk beds can save you a ton of money over traditional beds while still providing a comfortable night’s sleep to every guest.
4. No one has to share bunk beds
This is a major bonus for many sleeping situations. If you’re hosting a couple, they’re no doubt fine with sharing a larger bed (full or queen), but what if you have guests that aren’t in romantic relationships? Kids can be forced to share, but many adults will balk at the prospect of this forced proximity. With triple bunk beds, adults may still have to split a room, but at least each will maintain a modicum of privacy and personal space with his or her own bed to sleep in.
5. Comfortable and secure
When considering bunk beds for adults, safety and stability are of the utmost importance, especially when beds are stacked three high. With industrial-strength mesh metal panels and box section cross members designed to hold up to 400 pounds per platform, you know that guests can rest assured of a safe and comfortable night’s sleep. For optimal safety, you may have to bolt the bottom bunk to the floor and/or secure the structure to the wall, but you’ll be able to make the most of your square footage when you choose triple bunk beds.
