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!
Bearing that in mind, bunk beds are a great option for kids beds, in so many different situations. They offer options that regular beds don`t, both for saving space and for making good use of space. Kids love them and they look good. And they`re functional.
There is one major flaw in the concept of most bunks. They are simply unsafe. Children either fall or jump from the top bunk causing all manner of injuries. Broken bones and scrapes and bruises can be the least of it.
And bunks look great. Bunks are a piece of furniture, whereas regular beds are just a platform to hold up a mattress. Bunks are made of timber, and have lots of different colors. And designs. And looks, and feels. Bunks can come in so many different shapes and sizes and colors whereas regular beds are - well - regular. And boring.
