Solid wooden and metal bunk beds are the most versatile, not only will they last forever but can also be given a new lease of life by simply re-painting or varnishing and by purchasing new mattresses. Another benefit is that they can be sold-on or passed down to other family members when your children have out grown them.
If you have children who share a bedroom together, but who also happen to be very far apart in their ages, then a twin over full bunk bed is a great way to consolidate space while giving each child a bed that meets all their comfort requirements.
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.
