And don`t get bunks with corner posts that stick up above the railing, kids can catch things on them and fall, or hang off them, which isn`t great.
This said, although the basic concept has stayed the same, the range of colours, materials and design details has altered quite a lot over the last few years. Gone are the days when bunk beds were plain pine or tubular metal, they are now available in a variety of materials and colour options to suit most schemes and budgets.
That`s because bunk beds use up space very efficiently. They take up vertical space, whereas a regular bed takes up floor space. And it`s one of the few ways you can use up vertical space in a bedroom.
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.
