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.
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.
A bunk bed is carriage of sleep (which is the natural rest cycle of human beings) in which the skeletal frame of one bed is supported by the skeletal frame of another bed situated below with the stated purpose of allowing two individuals to sleep in one location with the additional benefit of extended any and all available flooring space.
