Queen Bunk Beds for Tween Boys Room Reveal

Queen Bunk Beds for Tween Boys Room Reveal
Creating shared spaces can be challenging - particularly as children grow into tweens and teens. With many bunk bed options available for younger kids, mom Kristin dePaula, went on the hunt for a more durable design for her tween boys, Zane and Rhett. As a large family with four kids total, the boys would need to continue to share a room, so Kristin needed a sophisticated design that fit their needs and small square footage. Instead of a Twin or Full Bed for 10 Year Old, they landed on Queen Bunk Beds, the boys love the extra bed space and are excited to hangout in their updated tween boys room.

After searching, Kristin chose the ladder on end option for the boys Queen bunks. It's clean design minimizes space and appeals to older tweens and teens. They like the openness of not having a ladder in the front of the lower bunk bed. Plus, Kristin's son can climb right up to the top bunk upon entering the room.

As tweens, the boys would need extra storage for all of their personal items, which can be difficult when sharing a room as well. Kristin chose an under-bed dresser to maximize space under the Queen bunks and a bedside magazine rack for storing their favorite books. She completed their storage with a Maxtrix nightstand and bookcase. Shop the full collection here

Kristin from Daily Moms Shares about the Room Reveal

We wanted a larger bed than a twin for our growing boys; they are big boys in the first place and we wanted something that would last through the tween/teen years. The larger Queen Bunk Beds were chosen and fit wonderfully in their room size.

The durability of these beds was also a huge factor as most bunks made me nervous, whereas the amount of weight these Maxtrix bunks held made me confident they would be safe for the boys.

The furniture was all incredibly easy to set up and assemble. We like the ability to move the furniture - the bookcase and 3 drawer dresser were simple.

The Queen bunks are heavy - I wanted sturdy bunk beds - so they are not as easy to move. It is possible with 2 adults, however.

The design is great, and the fit is exactly what we needed. There were a variety of layouts and storage options to chose from, which was a huge plus.

The quality is great thus far with heavy duty, sturdy options, and the staff was fabulous!

It is possible to turn the beds into two separate Queen size beds if we need to, but since we have 4 boys, it is likely they will remain as bunk beds for a long time to come. :)
