The main benefit of a bunk bed is the amount of space it saves. If you have two children sharing a relatively small room, a bunk can almost double the living space of the room. Even if you only have one child, a bunk can provide an extra place for a guest to sleep. Most bunk beds come with built in drawers for additional storage.
Bunk beds come in two main types. The first type is when the two beds are stacked directly on top of each other. In the second type the bottom bed is placed perpendicular to the top bed. These beds come in a variety of styles as well.
Twin over Twin also known as a single bunk bed or standard bunk bed, this is still the most popular configuration out there. As the name implies, a twin/twin bunk bed consists of two twin size (39 x 75 inches) beds stacked on top of one another.
Bunk beds these days come in a myriad of shapes, styles and designs -- it is worth taking a few moments to get familiarized with a few basic configurations and their common uses before beginning to research the market.
