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 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.
Bunk beds come in two main types. The first type is when the two beds are stacked directly on top of each other. In the second type the bottom bed is placed perpendicular to the top bed. These beds come in a variety of styles as well.
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.
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.
If you are unable to find a bed with a satisfactory rail, purchase one separately and securely install it. When you bring the beds home, spend some time speaking to all of the children in your home about safety.
