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.
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.
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!
Loft Bed a loft bed is any bed raised off the ground high enough so that the space underneath can be utilized in a productive manner. Loft beds are especially appreciated for their versatility, since this empty space can be put to use in a myriad of ways: for example, enclosing the area underneath the bed with a tent or a curtain with windows will create a fabulous play space, which will certainly be appreciated by younger children.
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.
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.
