Bunk beds have been a popular decorating item since their inception. There is no way to know just how many kids have fought over the right to sleep in the top bunk. Kids love them because they are fun and parents enjoy the fact that they save a lot of space. It is important to carefully consider the pros and cons of purchasing a bunk bed for your child as well as the various styles before you do so.
However there is one thing you need to think about. Bunks can be dangerous for kids, particularly young kids, if you don`t take precautions. Kids can hurt themselves in falls from the top bunk, and so you need to make sure you get child friendly bunks. Make sure the top bunk has good railings to prevent falls, don`t buy bunks with no railings on the top. And make sure they have good solid stairs.
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.
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.
