Finally, there is always a possibility to put another bed in there -- the difference here as compared to a bunk bed is, this bed can be added later on as a need arises, and it can also be removed or dislocated, put in another room if necessary. The downside is, the lower bed needs to be placed in a perpendicular fashion related to the main bed, which takes up a bit more space.
Parents use futon bunk beds so two children can share a bedroom more easily than separate twin beds allow. The upper bunk is usually for the older child.
If you do decide to purchase a bunk bed for your child`s room, be sure you purchase one with safety features. At the minimum the bed should have a secure rail on the upper bunk and a stabilized ladder. Avoid beds with no rail or with a ladder that is simply propped up against the bed.
And don`t get bunks with corner posts that stick up above the railing, kids can catch things on them and fall, or hang off them, which isn`t great.
