If you are looking for a bunk bed, chances are, your children are older and space is limited. Bunk beds are a great choice and kids just love them. Children's bunk beds come in a variety of styles, shapes and sizes, so take your time deciding which one works best for your family.
Options to Suit All
Kids bunk beds can sleep anywhere from two kids (in two standard twin beds) up to four (twin over full bunk beds). In this instance, there is a twin over full bunk beds; that is, a twin bed sits on top with a double below plus a trundle beneath. Or, you can get twin beds on top with full size bunk beds below.
There are also stackable bunk beds. These bunks can either be used side-by-side or stacked. And, there are also L-shaped bunk beds.
Large families love triple bunk beds. These are a great option and a terrific space saver, yet remember that you need an eight-foot ceiling or, preferably, a nine-foot ceiling for this to work comfortably. Some very large families love bunk beds for children; some can efficiently accommodate six children in two triple bunks!
Wood bunk beds tend to be more rustic looking and are perfect for a cottage or for those prefer the country look. If you do prefer a more urban, modern décor, there are many styles of metal bunk beds, including metallic silver and sleek white bunk beds.
Cozy Futon Bunks
Futon bunk beds are ideal space savers. For those living in apartments, futon bunk beds give you sleeping room on top with a futon couch below: a perfect playing space or secret hideaway for the kids!
Loft bunk beds are also a great choice for those with little bedroom space. With the cozy bunk on top, there is ample room below for a desk, computer and chair. This works very well for older children who need a quiet place for homework. Yet another option is to have full bunk beds on top. Below the bed, these bunks are cleverly designed with both cupboard space and desk space!
Save Money with Bunk Bed Plans
If you want bunk beds cheap, try purchasing bunk bed plans. These plans come in easy-to-follow kits. Just use a few simple tools -no woodworking experience is necessary! And if price is an issue, there are many stores offering discount bunk beds. Just remember to keep safety in mind when you purchase your bed. Ensure that there is a guardrail close to the wall and never let a child under six years of age sleep on the top bunk.
