Why do kids love bunks? Because bunks are fun. It`s quite possible to turn your bed into just about anything that you want to. Maybe your bed is a pirate ship, maybe a princess` castle? There`s so many things that a child can do with a bunk bed that they can`t do with a regular bed.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
