There is one major flaw in the concept of most bunks. They are simply unsafe. Children either fall or jump from the top bunk causing all manner of injuries. Broken bones and scrapes and bruises can be the least of it.
And while bunk beds are practical, let`s face it - sleeping in a bunk bed with a friend is one of the true joys that a child can experience. From calling out who`s got the top bunk to climbing up the ladder to telling stories to imaging your bunk bed is anything you want it to be, bunk beds, for many children and their families, are gathering spots and places to create fun and long-lasting memories.
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.
If you are unable to find a bed with a satisfactory rail, purchase one separately and securely install it. When you bring the beds home, spend some time speaking to all of the children in your home about safety.
