Provide a table surface below and younger kids now have a play space in an otherwise small room (Let`s face it! They get the smallest room in the house). They can park their train set, doll house, Legos, or construct any other make-believe world without having to disassemble it each night.

Classic, simple and easy to maintain, bunk beds in natural maple are a great way to give any bedroom a naturally rustic feel to it. Additionally, the very nature of bunk beds indicate that they`ll endure rougher and tougher treatment versus conventional beds.

Twin over Full a twin size bed mounted on a full size bed (54 x 75 inches) makes a twin/full bunk bed, an increasingly popular arrangement. The additional space on the bottom bunk can be useful in many situations -- for example, it can provide plenty of comfort to a fully grown teenager, while his/hers younger sibling can occupy the top bunk.
