With many standard bunk beds, you have the advantage of using the bunk bed as a twin bunk (that is, using both beds) while kids are little and are sharing a room, but later as a loft bed for one child. When kids get older and move to separate rooms, the bunk bed can be converted to a loft bed for one! All you do is remove the base of the lower bunk, turn the back rail toward the wall, re-attach it to the sides, and voila! -- A loft bed!
Most of the time it can be found in kids` bedrooms, and it is largely used to accommodate two children of roughly the same age. The majority of bunk beds of this type can be split into two separate units, which adds some practical value to the concept.
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.
If that`s the case, you`re in luck, because there are many different types of bunk beds out there for you to choose from. Here are just a few of the styles and types of bunk beds that you can purchase.
