And if you`re thinking of buying a house, but it`s pretty expensive, then you could buy a smaller house, or an apartment, and put 2 kids in one bedroom if you use bunks to do it. The kids are happy, you`ve bought a house that you might not have been able to afford otherwise.
But there`s also good reasons why parents love bunk beds too. It`s quite possible to house 2 kids in one small bedroom if you use bunks for the kids, and it doesn`t take up any more space than one single bed. So if you`ve got more kids than bedrooms buy a bunk bed instead of a new house, it`s way cheaper. And the kids will love it too, rather than complain as they would if you tried to squeeze a second bed into a small bedroom.
A child that falls from the height of a top bunk and hits their head could be seriously injured. The good news is it is possible to purchase a safe bunk bed. Teach your child some general safety rules and add an additional bed rail to prevent accidents.
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.
