The main benefit of a bunk bed is the amount of space it saves. If you have two children sharing a relatively small room, a bunk can almost double the living space of the room. Even if you only have one child, a bunk can provide an extra place for a guest to sleep. Most bunk beds come with built in drawers for additional storage.
Parents who like to snuggle in with their children for some reading before bed time will likewise appreciate the extra space. The additional width also improves the stability of the structure, which is another positive.
As of late, however, many parents choose these larger beds even if their children are still too small to actually need them; the reasoning is, the extra space provides more comfort regardless of the child`s size, and there is no need to worry the kids will outgrow this piece of furniture: if sturdy enough, a full over full bunk bed will see them through teenage years and beyond.
If you do decide to purchase a bunk bed for your child`s room, be sure you purchase one with safety features. At the minimum the bed should have a secure rail on the upper bunk and a stabilized ladder. Avoid beds with no rail or with a ladder that is simply propped up against the bed.
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.
Parents often choose this configuration if their kids have lots of sleepovers; futon bunk beds are also quite popular among young single people living in small apartments, and are used quite frequently in college dormitories.
