Sturdy Bunk Beds for Adults – Popular Designs

sturdy bunk beds for adults – Popular Models and What to Look for

Sturdy bunk beds for adults have been increasingly popular in recent years. Specifically designed to sleep many people in one space, it’s no surprise that bunk beds are a popular option for kids; they often have the smallest room in the house and share rooms.

Recently, however, solid wood bunk beds for adults have become very popular for a variety of reasons. Maxtrix offers the best bunk beds for adults that combine quality, safety, and style. Our sturdy adult bunk beds collection is full of bestselling XL and queen bunk beds tested to hold up to 800 pounds.

The Tiny Home Craze!

Many adults love living in – or vacationing in – tiny homes. These ultra-small footprint houses are a great way to live a more minimalist lifestyle. With the lack of space comes the need to be creative with sleep accommodations.

High-quality bunk beds for adults and sturdy loft beds for adults are a great solution for these super small spaces. These beds save precious floor space and accommodate multiple adults in comfort and style.

For small spaces, XL bunk beds with ladders on end are a popular solution. You can choose from different widths (twin XL, full XL, or queen) and add an XL trundle to add even more sleeping space. The XL length is perfect for adults with long legs that are used to longer beds (XL length = length of a queen bed). We equip each Maxtrix bunk bed with a metal underbed support bar, making them extra sturdy and able to withstand

Multi-Generational or Multi-Family Vacation Homes

What’s more fun than sharing a vacation home with family and friends and getting everyone together for a few precious days of fun and sun?

When adults suddenly share a room, adult size bunk beds can add a real fun factor and make for a memorable vacation experience, rekindling memories from sleepovers and vacation experiences when they were kids. This is especially true when creature comforts are not neglected, which is why our queen over queen bunk beds for adults are perfect for this situation.

If space allows, triple bunk beds for adults or quad bunk beds sleep even more people. Try positioning them in a corner bunk bed configuration, or simply next to each other connected with a staircase.

First Responder Sleeping Accommodations

Custom bunk beds for adults may also be a perfect solution for night shifts or overnight stays at work. Be it the firehouse, a hospital, or anywhere adults need to find a comfortable place to relax or sleep away from home in confined quarters, consider an adult sized bunk bed.

Our popular twin XL over queen bunk beds or full XL over queen bunk beds for adults is a great option, creating a sofa like area at the bottom which can be equipped with back pillows and bolsters for comfortable lounging. The top twin bunk bed can be used for sleeping and resting before being called to action. For more sleep spaces, try a bunk bed for 3 adults or a quadruple bunk bed. There are many possible configurations depending on space and size of a room.

Outfitting your Guest Room

Have only one guest room and too many guests? Consider an awesome adult bunk bed setup. Just imagine the wow effect this will have on your guests and the fun they’ll have visiting you. Place two twin XL bunk beds or queen size bunk beds for adults opposite each other to create 4 sleeping surfaces where a traditional guest bed would only allow for 1.

Safe and Sturdy Bunk Beds for Adults 

No matter which situation calls for an adult bunk bed, one thing is clear – this bed must be extra sturdy and made to withstand more weight than an ordinary kids’ bunk bed.

What makes a bunk bed good for adults? Larger sizes, obviously, but quality construction should not be overlooked either. The construction of a bunk bed is particularly important when you consider that it will need to support more weight to safely accommodate adults.

We engineer Maxtrix beds for quality and safety. This is what sets Maxtrix apart from other bunk beds on the market and makes us the ideal choice for sleeping adults. We use solid hardwood, including birch, maple, and aspen, which are properly dried and treated before manufacturing. This solid hardwood construction forms the foundation of a super durable bed.

We then add our patented hardware to create rock solid connections that stand the test of time. Our innovative Rock Lock technology makes the connection between top and bottom bunk extra sturdy and “wobble-proof.”

safety and sustainability bunk beds

All beds in our “extra-large” collection (which includes twin XL, full XL, and queen sizes) come with an extra solid metal underbed support bar and slat roll consisting of 15 wood slats, adding even more weight bearing capacity.

Standard Maxtrix twin and full-size bunk beds for adults are tested to withstand 800 pounds of resting weight per bed, but our XL sizes more than double that! Maxtrix XL bunk beds are tested to hold 2,000 pounds of resting weight per bed. Whether you need to sleep one person or multiple, our space-saving bunk beds for adults will sleep everyone safely.
