Adding BUNK BEDS to your listing. Are they a better use of space?

I was thinking about adding bunk beds to my current private room listing that has 2 twin sized beds, I thought that the bunk beds I could add bigger beds because my room is small … do any of you have bunk beds and if so are they a better use of space for you?

What is your target audience?

speaking as a guest that is frequently looking at listings for 5, I can say, my kids love bunk beds and they would be a ‘plus’ for me.

Do you change the beds? (now I’m speaking as a host) I would think it would be pain to change the sheets on the top bunk.

Yes I do clean the rooms but I don’t mind cleaNing.
Reason I want to add this is because I mostly get adults but I currently have 2 twin sized beds in there but I want to add a twin over full bunk bunk. So that I can still have 2 beds but have a bigger bed option for the adults that stay with me

It depends on your target market…for hostel guests are ok…but if you want to attract some people who have money…no.

We have bunkbeds with a pull out trundle under the lower bunk in one of our bedrooms in a flat with 4 bedrooms. It has been a HUGE selling point for people with kids and as an added bonus kinda keeps the partiers away.

Considered Murphy bed?

We have a Murphy Bed in our living room!

Love your space maximization!

That is brilliant. I want one in our rental!

that is crazy, crazy cool. Where did you get it?

Let’s start with I’m a bit insane… I knew we needed another ‘bed’ in our Wine Country house. We usually come up with couples, but never fail we have the one single friend who wants to come. I hate how air beds clutter the room and throw of the decor in a room, so I was determined to find another solution. I decided on a horizontal, wall mounted, murphy bed, that would look like a ‘mantle’ or ‘barn door’ or ‘art piece’ in my living room under the TV.

Here is the original link I found which includes plan to make the actual bed, not the decorative finish that I use. http://www.ana-white.com/2012/04/murphy-bed The bed itself has no crazy mechanisms and is very simple to make for about $150. I luckily found one already made on Craigslist, see photo, however it was UGLY. I painted, applied wood pieces that I distressed with stain and sanding, and viola!
