One of the biggest problems in parenting is convincing children to go to sleep. This conundrum spans all the way from infancy to high school, unless we play our cards right. So, how can parents get their kids to look forward to bedtime (and actually stay IN their beds)?

The solution is actually quite simple: personalize their space! Bunk beds, an interesting rug, bright bedding, and a soft mattress can transform a stale room into a cozy nest that your kids will actually want to sleep in. Some assembly may be required, but with a little hard work and imagination, anything is possible. Yes, even a full night’s sleep.

Here are the nine best bunk beds for kids and teens:

1. Ivy League Cherry Step Loft Bunk

Cherry Wood Bunk with Built-In Chest and Desk from Rooms to Go

We recently ordered this twin/full bunk bed that comes with chest and desk attached for our son, and we are currently waiting for it to be delivered. The display in the store showed us how sturdy and well made it is, which is perfect for our rambunctious little boy. Also, he’s a packrat, so the drawers that are hidden in the stairs are pretty much perfect for organizing his room.
Available from Rooms To Go Kids, $1,575

2. Coaster Home Furnishings Gunmetal Bunk Bed

With a weight capacity of 300 pounds for both the top and bottom bunk, the manufacturer and online reviews confirm that it’s sturdy enough to stand up to the wear and tear of your children. Plus, it looks pretty cool, don’t you think?
Available from Amazon, $589

Bunk beds that look like clubhouses did not exist when I was a kid, because if they had, I would have HAD to have one. This tree house bed is not only awesome-looking, but it got 5 stars on almost every customer review. Winning!

Pottery Barn is a wonderful option if you have a little extra money to spend. Everything I’ve ever owned from Pottery Barn has been extremely well made and has held up to a lot of wear and tear. The camp twin bed system has built-in drawers and a desk attached, but is heavier and much sturdier than some of the less expensive options.
Available from Pottery Barn, $2,196

9. Discover World Furniture Twin-Over-Twin Bunk Bed

Last but certainly not least, we have a basic, no-frills option. For under $500, you can get a solid bunk bed with built-in storage underneath. Boom. Done.
