Bunk beds have been a popular decorating item since their inception. There is no way to know just how many kids have fought over the right to sleep in the top bunk. Kids love them because they are fun and parents enjoy the fact that they save a lot of space. It is important to carefully consider the pros and cons of purchasing a bunk bed for your child as well as the various styles before you do so.
Today`s bunk beds come in all different shapes and sizes, and are manufactured and made from many different materials, including oak wood, cherry wood and maple wood. Additionally, bunk beds are also available in many different and varying styles, such as a twin over full bunk bed. It`s these advances in bunk bed design and construction that make bunk beds more desirable than ever.
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.
If you do decide to purchase a bunk bed for your child`s room, be sure you purchase one with safety features. At the minimum the bed should have a secure rail on the upper bunk and a stabilized ladder. Avoid beds with no rail or with a ladder that is simply propped up against the bed.
