Bunk beds these days come in a myriad of shapes, styles and designs -- it is worth taking a few moments to get familiarized with a few basic configurations and their common uses before beginning to research the market.
From traditional wood bunk beds to sleek metal modern beds, it is possible to find a bunk bed to fit the décor of any room. Specialty bunk beds decorated in children`s themes or with cartoon characters are also available.
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!
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.
