And while bunk beds are practical, let`s face it - sleeping in a bunk bed with a friend is one of the true joys that a child can experience. From calling out who`s got the top bunk to climbing up the ladder to telling stories to imaging your bunk bed is anything you want it to be, bunk beds, for many children and their families, are gathering spots and places to create fun and long-lasting memories.
There is one major flaw in the concept of most bunks. They are simply unsafe. Children either fall or jump from the top bunk causing all manner of injuries. Broken bones and scrapes and bruises can be the least of it.
And bunks look great. Bunks are a piece of furniture, whereas regular beds are just a platform to hold up a mattress. Bunks are made of timber, and have lots of different colors. And designs. And looks, and feels. Bunks can come in so many different shapes and sizes and colors whereas regular beds are - well - regular. And boring.
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.
