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!
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.
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.
If you are unable to find a bed with a satisfactory rail, purchase one separately and securely install it. When you bring the beds home, spend some time speaking to all of the children in your home about safety.
