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.
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.
Make the most of limited floor space by transforming the couch into a bed when you are finished reading to your children before bed - one of the best habits you can introduce as a parent. Fold the couch back in the morning and they will have more space to spread out projects on the floor, build make-believe worlds with little figures, or enjoy books on the comfy sofa.
This said, although the basic concept has stayed the same, the range of colours, materials and design details has altered quite a lot over the last few years. Gone are the days when bunk beds were plain pine or tubular metal, they are now available in a variety of materials and colour options to suit most schemes and budgets.
