Built-In Beds - A Great Space Saver

I actually incorporated this idea into one of my recent house plans... built-in beds, which are a wonderful space saver. These beds, whether in individual cubby cabins or in double bunks, work equally well in a child's room, or in a guest bedroom, to leave more open floor space while providing a spacious and comfortable sleeping area.

The beds are usually built against an existing wall and are often divided with partitions. Whether it's one single alcove bed, or a row of single beds, or even a room full of bunks, this is a stylish and very practical choice of interior design.
