The Montessori floor bed concept for 2!

 SilverSparkle by Lifetime

My friend Jo and I were talking about one of my favorite subjects the other day: Montessori floor beds!

Jo said she was thinking about doing it for her kids aged 3 and 5 because “they love sleeping on the floor”. But there is only 1 bedroom in Jo’s Parisian apartment and she wondered if the concept would work as bunk beds. Of course! So I assembled these images just for her.

Jo said they were not the handy types and couldn’t do anything to too DIY. That’s OK, because installing a Montessori bunk bed is just as easy as getting a kid’s loft bed and placing a mattress underneath. There are a ton of children’s loft beds on the market for all budgets and tastes.

Take for example this beautiful bed by Austrian children’s furniture company Perludi. The bed is made in Europe from  100% birch plywood and covered in Loden, a felted fabric made from 100% virgin wool. I am a big fan of all their furniture and simply love the design and color of this bed.

Then there are these wonderful loft beds by Danish company Lifetime.  You can read more about the company’s high standards and rich history in this article at Melody Home.  All beds are modulable  and can be customized with different colors and motifed panels.

Ikea also has a wide range of  bunk and loft beds that can be tailored to your tastes and needs.

This family took an Ikea Tromsö and created a great space for one of their boys. You can see more pictures of this beautiful black and white bedroom on their blog Fargebarn.

Or you can take an Ikea Kura and customize it into a cute Montessori style sleep space.

“Well that’s great and all”, said Jo, “but they BOTH want to sleep on the floor!”.  No problem, problem solved. Just take two twin sized mattresses and turn them the other way!
