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!
And don`t get bunks with corner posts that stick up above the railing, kids can catch things on them and fall, or hang off them, which isn`t great.
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.
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.
Bearing that in mind, bunk beds are a great option for kids beds, in so many different situations. They offer options that regular beds don`t, both for saving space and for making good use of space. Kids love them and they look good. And they`re functional.
And bunks look great. Bunks are a piece of furniture, whereas regular beds are just a platform to hold up a mattress. Bunks are made of timber, and have lots of different colors. And designs. And looks, and feels. Bunks can come in so many different shapes and sizes and colors whereas regular beds are - well - regular. And boring.
