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.
Space can often be an issue when it comes to planning the ideal room layout for your kids, particularly when they are sharing the same room. Bunk beds are the ideal solution in this instance and it`s no accident that they are the most popular form of children`s bedroom furniture.
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.
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!
