TreeHugger has shown many ways to hide the bed; most are designed to gain more space. But the Red Nest by Paul Coudamay doesn't; the bed is still there taking up space, but is hidden by the sliding bookcase.
Even thought we have the space, I like the idea of my 2 small girls sharing a room. I would have DIED for this bunk bed when I was a little girl. I think it offers somewhere special to sleep for BOTH girls. I just LOVE it! kid-s-room
