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 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.
Today`s bunk beds come in all different shapes and sizes, and are manufactured and made from many different materials, including oak wood, cherry wood and maple wood. Additionally, bunk beds are also available in many different and varying styles, such as a twin over full bunk bed. It`s these advances in bunk bed design and construction that make bunk beds more desirable than ever.
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.
