There is one major flaw in the concept of most bunks. They are simply unsafe. Children either fall or jump from the top bunk causing all manner of injuries. Broken bones and scrapes and bruises can be the least of it.
On the other hand, if space is limited and there are storage issues present, placing a drawer chest underneath the bed will probably come as a higher priority. For school age children a study desk may be the most pressing need, or perhaps some sort of storage/study combination -- many manufacturers offer integrated solutions designed specifically for just such situations.
Finally, there is always a possibility to put another bed in there -- the difference here as compared to a bunk bed is, this bed can be added later on as a need arises, and it can also be removed or dislocated, put in another room if necessary. The downside is, the lower bed needs to be placed in a perpendicular fashion related to the main bed, which takes up a bit more space.
Solid wooden and metal bunk beds are the most versatile, not only will they last forever but can also be given a new lease of life by simply re-painting or varnishing and by purchasing new mattresses. Another benefit is that they can be sold-on or passed down to other family members when your children have out grown them.
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.
Twin over Full a twin size bed mounted on a full size bed (54 x 75 inches) makes a twin/full bunk bed, an increasingly popular arrangement. The additional space on the bottom bunk can be useful in many situations -- for example, it can provide plenty of comfort to a fully grown teenager, while his/hers younger sibling can occupy the top bunk.
