Bunk beds in natural maple are tough enough to handle all be the roughest bounces, jumps and leaps, while at the same time attractive enough as to easily fit into and compliment any bedroom in which it is placed.
Solid wooden and metal bunk beds are the most versatile, not only will they last forever but can also be given a new lease of life by simply re-painting or varnishing and by purchasing new mattresses. Another benefit is that they can be sold-on or passed down to other family members when your children have out grown them.
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.
On the other hand, if space is limited and there are storage issues present, placing a drawer chest underneath the bed will probably come as a higher priority. For school age children a study desk may be the most pressing need, or perhaps some sort of storage/study combination -- many manufacturers offer integrated solutions designed specifically for just such situations.
