Parents use futon bunk beds so two children can share a bedroom more easily than separate twin beds allow. The upper bunk is usually for the older child.
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.
Choosing the bunk bed type with a perpendicular lower bed allows space for a desk to be placed under the upper bed as well. As an added benefit, as your child ages and grows out of the bunk bed phase, many can be separated into two separate twin beds.
Finally, there is always a possibility to put another bed in there -- the difference here as compared to a bunk bed is, this bed can be added later on as a need arises, and it can also be removed or dislocated, put in another room if necessary. The downside is, the lower bed needs to be placed in a perpendicular fashion related to the main bed, which takes up a bit more space.
