Loft Bed a loft bed is any bed raised off the ground high enough so that the space underneath can be utilized in a productive manner. Loft beds are especially appreciated for their versatility, since this empty space can be put to use in a myriad of ways: for example, enclosing the area underneath the bed with a tent or a curtain with windows will create a fabulous play space, which will certainly be appreciated by younger children.
Remind them that they cannot fly, so jumping off the bed is a bad idea as is rough housing on it, jumping on it or leaning off the top bed. Keeping in mind these few simple precautions will make having a bunk bed in your child`s room safe and fun.
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!
If you have children who share a bedroom together, but who also happen to be very far apart in their ages, then a twin over full bunk bed is a great way to consolidate space while giving each child a bed that meets all their comfort requirements.
