This said, although the basic concept has stayed the same, the range of colours, materials and design details has altered quite a lot over the last few years. Gone are the days when bunk beds were plain pine or tubular metal, they are now available in a variety of materials and colour options to suit most schemes and budgets.
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.
Be sure to choose any type of Bunk Bed with the top bunk completely surrounded by sturdy double rails to prevent accidents. Many Bunk Bed Futons come in unfinished pine so there is no gorgeous finished wood surface for the little play hammer to ruin.
Parents often choose this configuration if their kids have lots of sleepovers; futon bunk beds are also quite popular among young single people living in small apartments, and are used quite frequently in college dormitories.
