Outfitting your kid’s bedroom with the right furniture is a feat of its own — toss in a limited amount of square footage and that’s when you really need to throw on your thinking cap. Traditionally, one of the most popular ways to make the most of a small sleeping space is with a wall bed, better known as a murphy bed. Not only do these beds fold up nicely when not in use, but a good murphy bed can also make a cramped bedroom feel downright palatial in just a few seconds.

But what if you’re looking not for one bed, but two? That’s where the murphy bunk bed comes in. Yep, you read that right. Casually concealing two twin-sized bunks, murphy bunk beds are a fantastic space-saving solution, but they’re not the easiest pieces to find. That’s why we did the searching for you!
