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.
Provide a table surface below and younger kids now have a play space in an otherwise small room (Let`s face it! They get the smallest room in the house). They can park their train set, doll house, Legos, or construct any other make-believe world without having to disassemble it each night. Better yet, parents don`t have to step on all those little pieces previously on the floor!
Futon bunk beds give kids a sense of adventure. Kids use them for sleepovers when little friends stay the night. With sleeping space to accommodate three small people (twin above, double below), it is easy to accommodate small guests.
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.
