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.
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.
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.
Parents who like to snuggle in with their children for some reading before bed time will likewise appreciate the extra space. The additional width also improves the stability of the structure, which is another positive.
