Loft Bunk Beds with a Futon Underneath

by TerriRexson

Choosing bunk beds with a futon underneath works well when you need a spare bed occasionally for sleepovers, or to give seating in a small space.

A futon bunk bed is a popular way to make good use of a small space.

You can get bunk beds with either a single or full-size futon underneath. During they day the futons fold up to create comfy seating and when an extra bed is needed they quickly pull out.

They are popular for tween and teen rooms where kids like to have friends round for sleepovers but don't want to take up lots of space with an extra bed. They also work well for college students and studio apartment dwellers as they provide seating underneath the bed making very good use of space. A bunk bed with a futon means you can have visitors to stay even in a college student's room or a small studio.

Bunk Bed with Full-Size Futon

The Dorel Home Products Twin-Over-Full Futon Bunk Bed is a metal framed bunk bed with a twin bed on top and a full-sized folding futon frame on the bottom. 

During the day the futon provides a big comfy sofa. Great for reading or watching TV. Kids will enjoy having somewhere to sit when friends come round and for a college student or studio apartment owner this could be your main seating, meaning you have a sofa and bed in the same floor space. 

When you have a sleepover guest the metal futon frame slides to the horizontal position to provide a full-size sleeping area. 

There's also a good amount of space under the bed which could be used for underbed storage drawers - you could keep the spare bedding for the futon underneath. 

This bed gets good reviews for sturdiness and value for money.

Don't forget to buy a futon mattress and twin mattress to fit your bed if these are not included in the purchase price. 

Bunk Bed with Single Futon

Another option is to choose a bunk bed with a single futon underneath. You can still have a friend round for a sleepover but you also have additional room under the bed. 

This twin bunk bed / futon / workstation combines a twin loft bed, a single futon chair and a small desk in a very compact form. 

The futon chair isn't connected to the bed so you can move it around the room to find the right spot to sit in, or the best place to open it up into a single bed. When open it provides a single bed that is low to the floor.

Don't forget to make sure that there's room to unfold the futon bed in the room, and walk around it if needed. 

A Convertible Chair Under a Loft Bed

Another option is to choose a convertible sleeper chair that can turn into a twin bed and put it underneath a basic loft bed that has space underneath. 

This option gives you more flexibility in how you use the space. You could opt for a storage unit next to the bed chair or use the space to store larger items of sports equipment or a musical instrument. 

And you can choose a high quality convertible chair bed like this Baxton Studios Romano Convertible Sofa Chair Bed.
