Most of the time it can be found in kids` bedrooms, and it is largely used to accommodate two children of roughly the same age. The majority of bunk beds of this type can be split into two separate units, which adds some practical value to the concept.
With many standard bunk beds, you have the advantage of using the bunk bed as a twin bunk (that is, using both beds) while kids are little and are sharing a room, but later as a loft bed for one child. When kids get older and move to separate rooms, the bunk bed can be converted to a loft bed for one! All you do is remove the base of the lower bunk, turn the back rail toward the wall, re-attach it to the sides, and voila! -- A loft bed!
However there is one thing you need to think about. Bunks can be dangerous for kids, particularly young kids, if you don`t take precautions. Kids can hurt themselves in falls from the top bunk, and so you need to make sure you get child friendly bunks. Make sure the top bunk has good railings to prevent falls, don`t buy bunks with no railings on the top. And make sure they have good solid stairs.
Why not have a set of good storage drawers under the beds, or have offset bunks so that they fit in a corner? There`s so many options.
The design of the classic bunk bed has more or less stayed the same over the years, which is a testament to the ingenuity of the original idea. It`s difficult to improve a perfect design and the simple idea of having two individual bed frames which can be stacked to save space is one which remains as popular today as it has always done.
Bunk beds these days come in a myriad of shapes, styles and designs -- it is worth taking a few moments to get familiarized with a few basic configurations and their common uses before beginning to research the market.
