So now you know that a futon bunk bed is two beds, the bottom being a futon. The standard bunk bed has two twin beds -- above and below. And the loft bed has one bed above and an open space below.
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.
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.
The design of the classic bunk bed has more or less stayed the same over the years, which is a testament to the ingenuity of the original idea. It`s difficult to improve a perfect design and the simple idea of having two individual bed frames which can be stacked to save space is one which remains as popular today as it has always done.
