Montage: 20 Kids’ Sleeping Nooks

I’ve done a handful of kids bedroom posts, but there is no end to the cuteness, not to mention variations. Today I got pretty specific, pulling together 20 sleeping nooks (or alcoves) for kids, inspired by the round-up of modern kids rooms I did today for Design Milk.

I love a good built-in. So much sleeker and more efficient than furniture. And for a kid it’s pretty much heaven. I mean, who doesn’t want to sleep in a fort? I used to rig blankets up in my bunk beds, but I had the top bunk. This meant I didn’t reap the full benefit since I could never figure out how to get sheets to hang from the ceiling. I also used to move the dresser out from the wall so I had a private play space. Anyway, sleeping nooks are kind of an all in one play/sleep space. Love them.

For more good kids’ design, peruse my past posts 43 Kids’ Rooms, 65 Rooms with Bunk Beds, and 27 Little Boys’ Bedrooms. If you’re in the market for a new kid’s bed, check out the styles in 18 Bunk & Loft Beds and 34 Beds for Boys. Finally, follow my Kids’ Spaces board on Pinterest!
