Buy some good quality curtain rod hooks and attach them firmly on to the bunk bed just below the upper bunk. In most cases, you will have to drill holes in the bunk bed to attach the hooks. Make sure you buy the hooks that have a tightening system to hold the curtain rod firmly and to keep it from moving.

How do you put up bed curtains?
Hanging canopy bed drapes without rods by using hooks and wire (or rope)
- Mark each canopy bed post so you know where to install hooks.
- Drill the bed posts and install eye hooks.
- Determine the size of the canopy bed drape panels.
- Install rope or wire between the hooks.
- Hang the canopy bed drapes on the wire / rope.
How can I make my bunk beds more private?
Drape a sheet from the ceiling for added privacy. Put in an adhesive hook or a screw-in C-hook over your bed. Hang a sheet from the hook, and tuck the edges around the sides or your bunk. To give more form to your fabric bunk shelter, you might want to put in hooks at the four corners of your bed.
What age is safe for a loft bed?
We cannot stress the importance of age enough: it is not safe for a child under 6 to have a loft bed. Maturity is critical, too—not all children over 6 are ready to safely use a lofted bed. Your child must be able to understand that the top of a bunk or loft is for sleeping and reading only.
How do I add more support to my loft bed?
Whether you own a loft bed or a bunk bed, it is always a good idea to brace the poles of the bed. To do this, install a solid wooden or metal rail around the bed on top. This will not only brace the poles and make the structure sturdier but also protect your kids from falling down while they are asleep.
How do you hang curtains from ceiling around bed?
Place marks on the ceiling where you want the curtain rods to hang on each side of the bed. Ask an assistant to hold the rods against the ceiling. Use a carpenter’s level to ensure the rods are straight and will hang parallel to the length of the bed. Mark the center of the rod on the ceiling.
Can I use regular curtains on a canopy bed?
Canopy beds are often used with traditional curtains that are long, heavy, and thick. Sheers (or sheer curtains), on the other hand, are almost entirely see-through, providing less privacy but allowing light and air to pass easily through the fabric.
How can I make my loft bed colder?
You can make your loft bed much cooler – especially in summer – by leveraging fans, air conditioners, cooling down your bedsheets, or wearing lighter clothes that enhance the conduction of heat away from your body.
Bottom bunk residents have to work less to get to their beds, so they can’t complain as much as you do. Top bunkers have more leverage to ask bottom bunkers to do things for them, because those on the bottom feel a little bit of guilt for having the sweeter sleeping situation.
Can adults use bunk beds?
Yes, certain bunk beds are safe for adults. People come in all shapes and sizes. The bunk beds you choose should be able to accommodate a heavier person as well as all the lighter ones. Look for bunk beds that are designed for 500 pounds. Usually, these are industrial-strength, metal bunk beds.
Can a loft bed collapse?
Can the bunk bed collapse? If it’s not assembled properly, yes it can collapse. Make sure there are no missing pieces and everything is tightened sufficiently. Before allowing your child to climb in and go to sleep, push on all sides to test for sturdiness.
How much weight can a loft bed hold?
Typically, a loft bed holds 200 – 260 lbs of weight if it is designed for a twin mattress. The same is for a twin size bunk bed. Loft beds designed for higher weight limits can hold up to 600 lbs. Note that this weight includes the sleeper, the mattress, and any bedding.
How many deaths occur from bunk beds?
Each year, 36,000 injuries and an untabulated number of deaths result from bunk bed accidents.
How do I stop my loft bed from wobbling?
5 Ways to Fix a Loft Bed That Wobbles
- Install a metal or solid wood rail around the top of the bed.
- Use rounded edges to prevent any injuries.
- Install bracing either in the middle or the bottom of your vertical poles.
- Leave an entry by only bracing three of the four poles.
Do you use a box spring on a loft bed?
Box springs are not necessary for a bunk bed because they are far too bulky, and using one in a bunk bed could even prove to be dangerous. Instead, you should use a bunkie board, bunk bed support slats, or even a DIY mattress foundation made out of plywood. In most cases, you should not use a box spring in a bunk bed.
