Parents often choose this configuration if their kids have lots of sleepovers; futon bunk beds are also quite popular among young single people living in small apartments, and are used quite frequently in college dormitories.
That`s because bunk beds use up space very efficiently. They take up vertical space, whereas a regular bed takes up floor space. And it`s one of the few ways you can use up vertical space in a bedroom.
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.
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.
