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.
Why do kids love bunks? Because bunks are fun. It`s quite possible to turn your bed into just about anything that you want to. Maybe your bed is a pirate ship, maybe a princess` castle? There`s so many things that a child can do with a bunk bed that they can`t do with a regular bed.
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.
With many standard bunk beds, you have the advantage of using the bunk bed as a twin bunk (that is, using both beds) while kids are little and are sharing a room, but later as a loft bed for one child. When kids get older and move to separate rooms, the bunk bed can be converted to a loft bed for one! All you do is remove the base of the lower bunk, turn the back rail toward the wall, re-attach it to the sides, and voila! -- A loft bed!
