Twin over Full a twin size bed mounted on a full size bed (54 x 75 inches) makes a twin/full bunk bed, an increasingly popular arrangement. The additional space on the bottom bunk can be useful in many situations -- for example, it can provide plenty of comfort to a fully grown teenager, while his/hers younger sibling can occupy the top bunk.
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.
Make the most of limited floor space by transforming the couch into a bed when you are finished reading to your children before bed - one of the best habits you can introduce as a parent. Fold the couch back in the morning and they will have more space to spread out projects on the floor, build make-believe worlds with little figures, or enjoy books on the comfy sofa.
And don`t get bunks with corner posts that stick up above the railing, kids can catch things on them and fall, or hang off them, which isn`t great.
