And it`s sociable. Kids love to sleep near each other. It gives them a sense of familiarity, and it gives them comfort when it`s dark, or windy, or raining.
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.
Of course, the true nature of bunk beds combine both answers. Indeed, bunk beds do feature two beds literally stacked atop one another, and yes, bunk beds are truly much fun to sleep in as well. For many families, bunk beds represent a practical and fun solution to an age-old problem of how to save space.
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!
