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.
Why do kids love bunks? Because bunks are fun. It`s quite possible to turn your bed into just about anything that you want to. Maybe your bed is a pirate ship, maybe a princess` castle? There`s so many things that a child can do with a bunk bed that they can`t do with a regular bed.
But there`s also good reasons why parents love bunk beds too. It`s quite possible to house 2 kids in one small bedroom if you use bunks for the kids, and it doesn`t take up any more space than one single bed. So if you`ve got more kids than bedrooms buy a bunk bed instead of a new house, it`s way cheaper. And the kids will love it too, rather than complain as they would if you tried to squeeze a second bed into a small bedroom.
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.
