Designer Sarah Richardson decorated the kids' loft area with cheerful prints and natural lighting for a carefree feel. The twin bed includes a trundle to maximize sleeping capacity without taking up space. The mismatched quilts fulfill the cottage look that fits with the rest of the house.
A magical escape for pint-sized family members, the third-floor kids’ bedroom at HGTV Green Home 2012 is designed to stand up to wear and tear. Twin beds fashioned from repurposed pieces of pine, poplar and plywood feature black and white headboards upholstered in durable acrylic fabric. Accounting for guests' every need, green quilts are folded at the edge of each bed, should evenings take a chilly turn.
Tyler custom-ordered the ladder through the contractor, Frawley Construction, as a clever way to access the upper bunk.

The play space in this kid's room, part of the second-floor addition, was expanded by going up! A loft was created underneath the dormer window with the potential to be just about anything (daydreaming nook, pirate ship, secret hideout). A barn door hides an expansive closet.
Anthony Carrino and John Colaneri of HGTV's Cousins Undercover updated the kid's bedroom with minimal, stylish furnishings. The murphy bed easily folds up to provide more room for play during daytime hours.

Little ones curl up for the night in a custom-made platform bed on wheels (fun and flexible!) and a loft bed with ladder access. The room gets its light, bright feel from pine floors, white walls and sheer window panels.
This adorable contemporary kid's room is a playful style wonderland. A child-sized loft in the back makes a sweet tucked-away play space. A hammock swing waits to be curled up in. And the green, white and orange palette is one that stretches across genders and ages.
HGTV Design Star contestant Kellie designed this kid's bedroom on episode seven of season six. Though Mason asked for bunk beds, Kellie chose a loft bed with a hideout underneath.
