The main benefit of a bunk bed is the amount of space it saves. If you have two children sharing a relatively small room, a bunk can almost double the living space of the room. Even if you only have one child, a bunk can provide an extra place for a guest to sleep. Most bunk beds come with built in drawers for additional storage.
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.
Of course, the true nature of bunk beds combine both answers. Indeed, bunk beds do feature two beds literally stacked atop one another, and yes, bunk beds are truly much fun to sleep in as well. For many families, bunk beds represent a practical and fun solution to an age-old problem of how to save space.
Futons with Bunk Beds typically include a twin bunk bed above and a full-size futon sofa below. You can use the futon bunk bed below as a sofa by day and as a bed at night. Futon bunk beds are front operating, so there is no need to pull the entire bunk bed away from the wall. Just fold out the futon sofa underneath with the sheets already tucked under the futon cover.
