How to create Family Suites to comfortably sleep many

Whether you’re building mountain lodges or re-designing a seaside resort to optimize sleeping space, the process is pretty much the same. Hotels often maximize headcount & family guest comfort by adding family suites with bunkbed rooms separate from the main bedroom.

At Maxwood we are experts in versatile furniture. Our modular Commercial series of Beds, Lofts, Bunks & Case Goods has endless possibilities. Samoset Resort & Harborside Hotel both debuted new “Family Suites” in 2019 with Maxwood’s Commercial Twin XL Bunks. The challenge here was to create spacious sleeping quarters while maintaining the modern and classy look and feel of the décor.

These fun suites offer children & teenagers the VIP treatment and feature a special “room within a room” that keeps them entertained in their own area, furnished with a bunk bed and TV. Parents have the benefit of privacy with a partial wall for more time to relax.

Even small spaces can be converted to comfortable sleeping spaces. Oftentimes it’s expensive and time-consuming to get a custom design piece made to fit. Contact our design team and see what we can do for you! We can create a room design based on your measurements and make a recommendation on how you can accommodate the most people.

When designing spaces for guests, consider the “real-life use” – how will your staff and guests use the rooms? Some visitors may have small children and co-sleeping may be important to them, so consider adding pull out trundle beds.

Added safety rails for bottom bunks are appreciated by many families for younger guests, especially if they are detachable – families have the option to remove them if they don’t need them or attach them if they do.

Maxwood’s dedicated Trade team works with diverse Commercial customers on projects ranging from Hotels to Student Accommodations. The Commercial series is available quick-ship (3 standard finishes) or Factory Direct from Vietnam (custom finish & designs available – minimums apply).
