Bunk beds are the clear choice when you need a solution for sleeping several people in one space, whether it’s a toddler bunk bed or a bunk bed that’ll fit a full-grown adult. But twin-sized bunk beds aren’t always a comfortable choice for adults, and they aren’t particularly useful when you have more than two sleepers. 

Quick Overview

What’s a Twin-over-Queen Bunk Bed?

This style of bunk bed includes a twin-sized bed on top, and a queen-sized bed on the bottom. It’s perfect for kids and adults, and can help maximize your space without taking up every inch of a bedroom.

That’s where twin-over-queen bunk beds come in. Like twin-over-full bunk beds, they provide maximum sleeping surfaces with a minimum footprint, and some even pull triple-duty with three beds to really take advantage of vertical room. We’ve rounded up our top 10 favorites, including options that offer extra storage and trundle beds for even more guests.

Max & Lily
was $1199.00

Maximizing space is the name of the game when it comes to furnishing a room with bunk beds, and this option from Max & Lily delivers with an XL twin bed over a queen-sized bed, plus two spacious drawers under the bottom bunk for built-in storage. This heavy-duty, all-wood bed can handle up to 400 pounds on each sleeping surface, and the beds may also be used separately.

Taking top honors for Cutest Twin-over-Queen Bunk Bed, this adorable rubberwood bed includes a critter face design on the top bunk and a built-in floating bookshelf for the lower bunk, plus two storage drawers on the bottom.

This metal twin XL-over-queen bunk bed is durable and sturdy, with a sleek gunmetal finish that adds a modern touch to any room. With weight capacities of 175 pounds on the top bunk and 350 pounds on the bottom bunk, this would be a good choice for teens or young adults.

A twin-over-queen bunk bed is already a great way to maximize space, but add a full-size bed to the equation and you can sleep even more guests. This triple bunk includes built-in ladders and comes with all the tools needed for assembly. The solid steel frame is durable, which makes it a smart pick for high-traffic rooms.

Maxtrix Kids

Perfect for a guest room that sees a lot of action, this modular bunk bed includes a trundle below and can be reconfigured to use each bed separately. Hardwood finishes look lovely and timeless, and the bed can hold a whopping 800 pounds, which is double the U.S. safety standard. You’ll need higher ceilings for this bed, which reaches just over 70” high.

I love this bed because the queen-sized bottom bunk doubles as a futon-style sofa during the day, making this a functional piece for a small apartment or shared space, and the transformation from futon to bed is quick and easy. It’s also great for tweens and teens who have frequent sleepovers or just like to chill with friends in their room.

Usually when it comes to bunk beds, you have to choose between a handy trundle bed or under-bed storage, but this option features both. Both beds (and the trundle, for that matter) can be used separately, and the ladder may be used on either side of the bed.

8 / 10
Maxtrix Kids

If you’re looking for a solution for getting as many heads in beds as possible (like, say, for a vacation house), the option of a quad bed — in this case, two twins and two queens — may be just the thing for you. This one, from Maxtrix kids, has a modular design that allows you to use each bed separately or combine them into one unit with a central staircase.

9 / 10

This bed looks like a twin-over-twin bunk bed at first, but sneaky storage reveals a hidden pull-out feature that transforms this into a twin-over-full, queen, or even king-sized bunk bed when extra guests arrive. Upper guard rails are a nice 14.2” high, so you can use a thicker top mattress while still keeping top-bunk sleepers safe.

was $2920.14

The elegant design of this loft-style twin-over-queen platform bed from Restoration Hardware will bring a sophisticated touch to any bedroom. Although it is a splurge, the choice of weathered white spruce or sandwashed gray or brown hardwood finishes gives this piece a timeless look that makes it a sound investment. The top bunk was designed to fit a low-profile mattress to give clearance and fit within the guardrails.
