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. Better yet, parents don`t have to step on all those little pieces previously on the floor!
And if you`re thinking of buying a house, but it`s pretty expensive, then you could buy a smaller house, or an apartment, and put 2 kids in one bedroom if you use bunks to do it. The kids are happy, you`ve bought a house that you might not have been able to afford otherwise.
You can stain or finish it or just leave it as is for a pale wood look that will keep a room light and bright. Do yourselves a favor while your kids are little. Buy bunks that they can`t ruin!
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.
