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.
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.
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 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.
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!
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.
