Of course, the true nature of bunk beds combine both answers. Indeed, bunk beds do feature two beds literally stacked atop one another, and yes, bunk beds are truly much fun to sleep in as well. For many families, bunk beds represent a practical and fun solution to an age-old problem of how to save space.
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.
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.
Why not have a set of good storage drawers under the beds, or have offset bunks so that they fit in a corner? There`s so many options.
