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.
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.
Parents often choose this configuration if their kids have lots of sleepovers; futon bunk beds are also quite popular among young single people living in small apartments, and are used quite frequently in college dormitories.
However there is one thing you need to think about. Bunks can be dangerous for kids, particularly young kids, if you don`t take precautions. Kids can hurt themselves in falls from the top bunk, and so you need to make sure you get child friendly bunks. Make sure the top bunk has good railings to prevent falls, don`t buy bunks with no railings on the top. And make sure they have good solid stairs.
